‘dirt_bloke’ turns 50, takes the Tiger to the desert… as you do!

In the first two weeks of October this year five blokes go for an adventure to Birdsville and back. This yarn has everything; drama, arguments, getting lost, mechanical issues, chopper rescue, kangaroos, emus, dunes, nights of too much alcohol and lots more!

Buckle up spanky and come for a ride!





This tread is rated MA, there will be coarse language, drug references, no nudity (it was too hot for a nudie run) and no sex scenes (we weren’t away that long, mind you there were some good looking goats towards the end of the trip, long lonely night, bit of lipstick, good looking goat…)

In Alberta and all of North America as far as I know that's a pump jack.

If my new employer (yet to find one ) lets me I would like to do it as well. Noah who's riding rtw is keen too. I'll have to warn the 'merican about the carnivorous bilby We've only got the drop bears here, and they only target people without aussie accents. FACT http://www.australiangeographic.com....says-study.htm

Hi Craig,
As you can see there isn't too many trees for the Drop Bears to fall out of. As with most things in nature, there is always the 'Alpha Predator'. In that part of Australia, it is the Lesser Eared Carnivorous Bilby. You don't hear too much about them as not many back packers get there, and you also have the government cover up.

BTW, how are Patty's folks going with the fires?
