Frank,
we travelled as far as Vokes Hill Cnr in 2000 (then turned south to Cook), and Annes Cnr in 2001(then turned NW up the MT Davies Rd). There aren't any major geographical features to see (Vokes Hill is off the track and just a dune anyway), so just dune camping which we like. Of course you will be interested to see the relics of the atomic testing facility. I had to roll around in the gravel at ground zero repairing a tyre - didn't need to set up a new mantle for the lantern that night :-) One lasting memory was waking to the sound of a dingo on Anzac day 2000, in the dunes just West of the Nature Reserve. It sounded like the Last Post.Bob

Hi Frank, did the Anne Beadell August last year west to east. The travelling was pretty easy from Laverton to Camp no.4., but after that it deterioated as you got across the border into S.A. so care had to be taken. David (ExplorOz) has mentioned most of the places of interest. I have some pics on my web page at www.havewheelswilltravel.iinet.net.au if you want to browse. Found the campsites at Yeo, Nos 1,2,3,4, quite ideal & the bomb site at Emu interesting particularly after reading Len Beadell's 'Too Long In the Bush' which gives you a good idea of the conditions around that time. Have a good trip. Cheers. Have Wheels Will Travel

Frank,

Jim here again. As I said earlier I'm doing this trek West to East and then back home on the Great Central Road in Sep 04. I assume you'll put up some trek notes or any new info on your return? I will be particularly keen to hear from you about the new campsites (4) on the Anne Beadell hwy and whether the water storage is good quality and reliable in your opinion.

Also, as David / Michelle indicated on their trip report, a new roadhouse is under construction on the junction with the Aboriginal Busineess Road. I rang the community responsible for running it last week and the person I spoke to indicated that it might not be operational by Sep, but that it might be possible to have fuel pre-positioned there if i fax an order.

Any info on this sort of stuff will be greatly appreciated.

Good luck and enjoy your trip Cheers, Jim
