I finally got around to updating my Map of travels both recent and past about this great country of ours. Still plenty of gaps to explore.

It's almost frightening to think how much things have changed. Fuel was an outrageous $1.00 per gallon (22c per litre) in the remote outback in the early to mid 70's. The bitumen north stopped at Port Augusta. The Great Northern Hwy was a track. The Gunbarrel didn't have any corrugations (well I may have made that up lol) UHT milk didn't exist (god I hated powdered milk) and petrol vehicles were largely the go.

trip would doubtless be attended with much hardship.''
