Preparations to drive across the Centre of Oz.

Time for Elaine & Ken to take a break driving across some of Australia’s more remote desert tracks, explore part of the Canning Stock Route & the Pilbara Region, Ningaloo Reef, Karajini National Park, plus lots of other waterholes, gorges & outback communities, & if we haven’t had enough corrugations & red dust back home via The Gunbarrell Highway, Uluru -(Ayres Rock) and back along the Black Top – I’m certain by then we will have enough of red dust & corrugations!.

Most important in our preparations, our pet/house sitter is here & getting familiar with all my special animals, their feeding regimes & comfort requirements. Big sigh of relief although I’m going to find it very hard not to have my daily animal “fix”.

Permits to transit Aboriginal Lands applied for. Long range Fuel Tank installed on vehichle, extra spare installed & lots of other vehicle stuff seen to. Emergency beacon ordered – Spot Connect, hope it gets here on time, although our travelling companions are also carrying a Emergency Beacon.  I have learnt how to load photos onto new computer (many thanks to guests with IT skills). Trayon Camper on ute. So much to get ready.

Hopefully I’m going to keep a irregular but frequent BLOG happenning of our adventures so feel free if you are interested to follow along. There is a RSS feed button on the website to keep you up to date.
