Edition 202: 18th March 2010

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

The brand new second edition of Hema’s Great Desert Tracks Atlas and Guide is in stock now. With 28 desert treks, along with all of the newly updated Hema mapping available for the desert regions of Australia , this title is a fantastic 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 Forum

You'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 Rules

We 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.

Still time to enter the Photo Competition

What a brilliant response we've had so far to our 2010 ExplorOz Members' Photo Competition, with over 40 blog entries already and an astounding number of top quality shots. It’s not too late to enter, and you could win a brand new Hema Navigator 5. You need to become an ExplorOz member to be able to enter, which then provides you with access to create a Blog on ExplorOz. This competition seeks the best blog entry containing a photograph of a scene that typifies "ExplorOz". For more information on the 2010 Photo Competition click here to view the previous newsletter.

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.

ExplorOz featured in National TV

ExplorOz was the official online partner for series 2 of the Pat Callinan 4x4 Adventures TV show that recently aired on Network Ten and OneHD nationally throughout December, January and February. ExplorOz was featured in all 7 episdoes in the wrap up with a special recommendation for viewers to check out ExplorOz.com for more information about trip planning, road conditions etc. The show has now finished and we are in negotiations about continuing in the next series later this year. For those that missed us in the show, we have created a small video clip containing excerpts from the show.Click here to view video blog.
