Hi all, Bit of a change of plans, Iam heading north once the PDR is open going up around the Weipa area for 4 to 6 weeks then leave there come back down and go across the Savannah way and up to Darwin. Stay with a mate for a day or so then Head over to WA to Kununurra and on to Kalumburu. and stay at Mcgowans fishing camp for a few weeks, Is anybody going to be up that way around then, Craig

Hi Craig
We are starting out end of april from The Redlands.
Across the Plenty.
Will be in Darwin sometime in June.
McGowans probably some time middle of July.
Broome early August.
Back across the Tanimi
Not sure which way we are coming home from Alice Springs.
Keep an eye out for the old Triton and my homebuilt hybrid.
Rod.
