Jun 2, 2010 - Gunbarrel Hwy: to Carnegie Station

Day 15: Gunbarrell Hwy: Mt Beadell to Carnegie Station ( 2/6/10) Dead camels = 3 Freezing night again. Second worst thing about camping : smoke – blew straight into our tent as I was packing up. Everything and everyone smells smoked. Open plains again, covered in Spinifex. Corrugations and big pot holes. Lots of humorous chiding as usual about who gets to drive – John suggests at 10am that it’s time to stop for lunch because then he gets to drive; Peter and Reg suggest he stays permanently as CB commentator as he is doing such a good job!!!...

Jun 1, 2010 - Gunbarrel Hwy: Beadell's Tree to Mt Beadell

Day 14: Gunbarrell Hwy: Beadell’s tree to Mt Beadell (1/6/10) Camels = 6 Warmish night, windy so no dew on tents/swags. Saw a camel running in the distance whilst eating breakfast. Lots of camel prints, poo and tree tops eaten off. Road is red sandy clay, only 2 tyre tracks wide. Lots of Spinifex, low shrubby trees. Track so narrow both sides of vehicles getting scratched by trees. Patches of she-oaks for a change. Now wide open plain between sand dunes – no trees, only low bushes and grasses and small termite mounds. 1pm at Jackie Junction...

May 31, 2010 - Yulara to Beadell's tree Gunbarrel Hwy

Day 13: Yulara to Beadell’s Tree on the Gunbarrel Hwy At the beginning of the day we have done 4504 kms. Freezing again – 5 degrees. Last hot shower for a few days so relished it. Blokes changed tyres to ones more suited to dirt roads, tightened things and generally inspected both vehicles thoroughly. I think the nuts and bolts are going to fall off from too much tightening! Couldn’t buy any fruit or veges as we will be crossing the WA border today and didn’t want it taken off us – menu is going to be a little restricted for the 4 days...

21st August Joined the Warburton Circus this morning …..the daily ritual of the 8am opening of the roadhouse. Quite a gathering of the local indiginies and more coming in as we jostled for a spot at the diesel pump. I was 2nd in-line behind a white lady for diesel and as the attendant was filling her tank a large aboriginal bloke pulled up at the nearby unleaded pump and demanded he be served. “these people were here 1st” our attendant said to him. Not sure if he heard that, but this bloke continued to demand service even while I was being...

A whole day in Warburton...whoo, hooo. Can't believe I actually slept last night with the racket from the coolroom motors over at the end of the roadhouse. Must have been plum tuckered out. Fortunately there were no more caravans here but the park has 42 demountable accomodation units and last night every one was occupied.Not sure what they were all doing here, only a few for the concert were staying here. Not a lot of pics in this update, I could have taken one of a couple of big swearin', sweaty black fellas changing a tyre but taking...

No sound of any birds this morning, did hear a dingo howling off in the distance before sunrise and then the mob started to stir. No respect for anyone who might have been still asleep. Anyway I was awake so got up and started breakfast and slowly packing up. This group were travelling in convoy with Ron Moon who is supposed to be Australias resident 4 wheel drive guru and they were heading off out into the scrub for some bush bashing, and then tomorrow heading north to Kunnunura thru' a few aboriginal communities which us mere mortals are...

17th August Boy oh boy, an absolutely bitterly cold morning, cold wind and big black clouds in the north. Who said it doesn’t rain in the desert? I’m bloody annoyed with myself for not realizing sooner exactly where we were situated in this park. Being on a blue metal base and a well used short cut to the toilets and showers all we got late into the night right next to our tent was the “scrunch, scrunch, scrunch” of footsteps going past. Then it started again early in the morning. Anyway…them’s the breaks. No rush to get going, needed...

18th August Woke to the birds singing in the desert oak above us…..what a wonderful sound after the noises of yesterday morning with all the people moving about in the Yalara caravan park. I’m probably getting kranky in me old age but there seems to be a lot of inconsiderate folk caravanning at the moment. I won’t go on about it. Not in any hurry to get out of bed, only planning to drive a measly 100kms today, all the way to Warakurna . Still a bit of rain around but managed to get the camper folded before it got too wet. Breakfast and...
