Day 5

Hi Gear Heads---off on day five of the challenge and today we will detour from cars into the realm of boats and then go about 500 k down the road in an afternoon rush to the Banka Banka Outback Station for a good night rest! I camped in the Katherine Gorge last night and today I found out...

Awesome Ride and On to the Final Phase

Return To The Alice: Day 3

Most road trips in Australia involve copious amounts of driving distances incomprehensible to anyone whos never left the UK. Not even a fortnights holiday in Spain or a trip around France can prepare you for the sheer amount of kilometres you can drive without seeing anything. Today was Big...

We are now in the Northern Territory

We travelled over the last couple of days on the Barkly Highway across the Barkly Tablelands towards the Stuart Highway . We camped at two nice spots but there lots of rain . It continues to produce unseasonal rains, we are definitely the drought breakers. Coming towards the Three Ways...
