Just a short

We are packed and ready to leave tomorrow morning so just a short post as its Melbourne Cup weekend so we have a four day weekend and we plus three of the children with their families are off to Horsham which is only 280 Km  for the weekend.


 We will camp/caravan at the Wimmera Lakes Caravan Resort; spend a day in the Big Desert 4x4ing, time permitting we will spend sometime in the Grampians NationalPark.

It will be a good test for the new fridge and the awning ‘tent’,  it will also be the first time out for my son to test his 'new' 2003 Pajero as well as a good test for the new three core radiator which I had custom made and  fitted  by Campbellfield Radiator Service last week and should be a relaxing, fun time with the grand children. With some luck and depending on the internet connection I will do a daily post otherwise it will be next week.

Camel ride at Uluru
As for the trip, apart from doing a lot of research on places to see and making a list, we have decided that we will just do one night stops up to Alice Springs, the reason being that we have previously visited Adelaide (many times), Port AugustaCoober Pedy, Uluru, Kings Canyon and Alice, so the plan is as follows:

Day 1   Tailem Bend      580 Km
Day 2    Port Augusta     400 Km
Day 3    Coober Pedy     540 Km (may have a rest day)
Day 4    NT Border          395 Km
Day 5    Alice Springs      290 Km

That's 2,205 Km in five days so we will definitely spend a day or two in Alice, if only to do the washing and veg.

Until next time…………………….. Live don’t exist
