Jol's Trips for 2015

TO BE ADVISED

 Looking at the prospects of RETRACING THE FOOTSTEPS OF PETER EGERTON WARBURTON'S 1873 EXPEDITION. This started at Sturt Creek 50km north of Alice to DeGrey Station near Roebourne in WESTERN AUSTRALIA. 

We have been and had a look , its will be do-able but not easy, so we are looking at 2014 to have a go, if your interested, talk to me.

My Brother who  grew up here, like me, is about to semi retire ( beleive it when i see it) after being in the US and Canada plus living in NZ is coming in 2014 to help me look around , there are some specialk places around here with unfinished business from when we were in our 20's if your keen on Rock Art petroglifs and stuff. We are from here, have lots of indigenous friends what to show us, let me know.

FROM ALICE to BIRDSVILLE

The backway, keep an eye on the website we will let you know, where and how.

We went and had a look in August, it was a great piece of wilderness, but exactily how we will do it next year yet to be seen, but its good country, it rough, it's slow and a challenge all in one. If you have a good 4WD you'll love it.
