I sure do! Do we book as a group or individually I wonder?

Fantastic! Parachilna, Leigh Creek or Lyndhurst doesn't matter, as long as we stop somewhere under 7hrs of driving Im happy. Who would have thought instead of meeting you and your family at Murrindindi, we would meet on this huge exciting adventure!
I hope Shrek can coincide with us as well, would be great  :D
We are also very excited about the trip in the red centre, and I am equally excited about the drive to get there and back. My partner is flying up and will meet us at AS, so it will be just my daughter and me. She is not excited at all, rather anxious about all the unknowns......she's opposite to me  ;D

Yep, the journey is just as much fun as the destination!
A big days drive on your own can take it out of you. Plenty of breaks, and me and Di can even share the driving with you if needs be.

No, I'm not a perfectionist, OK, perhaps sometimes, but I promise to behave.... really I will!

Just remember to take it easy and don't push it just to make a dead line. To many accidents because of that. Plenty of the places you have listed maybe graded the week before you get there or not graded for a Month before hand and this will dictate your travel times. The Oonadatta (can  is usually in god nic but sh1t to Dailhousie if your going there, stuff like that. The track to Hallagen Bay (Lake Eyre South) is also rubbish due to the rock and it is a hard trip for a day - well worth it but please take care

Thanks steve. It's our first time in the area so we'll be taking care and driving to the conditions. We have a couple of days up our sleeve if we do need to change plans.
