Edition 210: 8th July 2010
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
The ExplorOz National Gathering in Wiluna has drawn to a close for another year,
but judging by the copiousForum and Blog posts by attending Members, it looks like fun was had by all. Stay tuned for a detailed
trip report in the coming weeks. In the mean time, why not follow ExplorOz
owners David and Michelle as they travel up the Eagle Hwy, Gary Hwy and Canning Stock Route. TheirEOTrackMe route can be viewed in real time on their Members Profile

New Online Shop Products
The ExplorOz Online Shop has just added an exciting new 4x4 Equip product:
TheFree Standing Light or Shower Pole Kit.
This item first came to our attention when it was donated as a charity raffle prize for the Wiluna Gathering, and was so impressive in terms of both its
practicality and versatility, that it just had to be added to the Online Shop. Whether used with a portable camping light
or shower, this item is a great addition to your camping gear.
FREE ExplorOz Trivia CD
Launched at the 2010 National Gathering, now you can get your copy of the ExplorOz Trivia CD.
Narrated by David and Michelle Martin (the creators of ExplorOz.com), this item is perfect for in-car entertainment and education. If you’re an Australian
travel enthusiast and/or regular ExplorOz.com user, these questions directly relate to the experience of camping and touring in Australia, and information
found on the site. Also, as special introductory offer for this fortnight only, we’re giving away a FREE Trivia CD (RRP $9.95) with every shop order!
DIY Road Conditions
We know there's a "traveller's grapevine" - we often take it with a grain of salt, but we never ignore it as first hand information, particularly comments about conditions of tracks is invaluable. But did you know that on ExplorOz we offer a uniqueRoad Conditions section for people to share these anecdotal comments? Problem
is, this great information is often shared in the ExplorOz Forum instead
of within the Road Conditions reports. In order for these comments to help your fellow
traveller, they need to be listed within the Road Conditions report. Every road
is listed - so its fast and simple, open the road by name, enter your comment and its done. Too easy! For a Step-By-Step Guide be sure to read our DIYRoad Conditions BlogHERE.
