Hi ExplorOz Reader,
The brand new second edition of Hema’s Great Desert Tracks Atlas and Guide is in

resource for trip planning and navigation. The Camps Australia Wide 5 titles
are also back in stock after being unavailable for the past few months, so place an order to secure your copy of one of these extremely popular books. We’ve also received
a new shipment of the Globalsat BU-353 Mouse GPS, and we’re now offering these units
for only $75, that’s a huge 25% off the Standard RRP, this offer is only available through ExplorOz and only for a limited time, so get in quick!
Latest 10 Blogs featured on the ForumYou'll notice a significant improvement to the presentation of Blogs in the Forum Index page,
which sees over 15,000 views per day. This change is done to improve general layout, and includes the first blog picture as a thumbnail (first listed only), so make
sure you include pics! You'll also note a temporary new button for 2010 Photo Comp at the bottom of the list. This takes you to the "Photo View" layout enabling
you to view all blogs tagged to the comp in "photo view" mode. A nifty way to quickly browse all the wonderful entries.
Updated Article - WA Fishing RulesWe recently updated our WA Fishing Rules article
to reflect the NEW licensing changes that came effect on 2 March 2010, including a State-wide Recreational Fishing from Boat Licence (RFBL), and the new fee
structure for existing recreational fishing licences. ExplorOz updates articles promptly when the information comes to hand, so it is a good idea to check
the home page for any article updates featured.

National Gathering Update
Things just get better and better, with news just to hand that Hema are sending their Hema Navigator Product Manager, Greg Lauer to our gathering to run some
navigation workshops (no charge) and of course demonstrate the new HN5. We have slotted in a 2 hour workshop for this on Day 3, and they'll be some fun with
geocaching on our big drive on Day 2. The Gunbarrel Laager/Travelers Rest say they've taken bookings for 33 sites (tents, caravans and camper trailers) with
85 Members and 4 dogs! There is still room on Clancy's Flat but all double/family rooms in the dongas have been taken. Note - please make your own arrangements
direct with Gunbarrel Laager. Click to view Gathering Page.
