Hidden too well for UncleGra and TonyRDR to find at Well 23 fuel dump.
Hey Rick, we will make a point of trying to find it, how deep and far behind the tree was it buried.

D Doc,

Water

what u plan for the top half of the Canning sounds logical and commonsense (i figure you are not a government beauracrat) with the bonus of 12kg less weight -- 18 down to 6

Elsewhere in the outback on the Connie Sue, one ride we had, we had bike probs and were about 50-60km short of our destination at Warby which we had banked on with water supplies.

Myself, dinner was a cup-a-soup with half a cup of water left in the camelback (the high salt content just made my dehydration worse) - I'm a dickhead

One of the other riders Peter the next morning had a severe headache. At Warby there was like 4 camels drinking the well dry. I know i drank 6ltrs, a 2ltr can of tomato juice, 2ltr can of fruit juice and over 2ltrs of water before i felt quenched.

Lesson learnt

Sno

P Prick,

--- from the front page of the Herald Sun, the London Times, the Hebrew Herald, IL Globo and The Truth (for those who are 100 and over - what a shitty paper it was).

-------- A nobel prize awaits a world famous archaeologist Professor Prick for his scientific proof that in fact there is beer hidden on the Canning Stock Route.

For years independant AD riders have suffered the withdrawl symptoms of no beer on c.s.r -- well thanks to Sir P Pricks scientific discovery this will give great joy to Australian AD riders.

We envisage a huge stampede of riders from around the world decending on WAs CSR - mayhem guaranteed.

Looks like the military will need to be sent in to help keep things under control.

So next time you open that well lid, some will have water and some will have golden light bursting forth.

Ahhh praisseeee the lord.

Go Pies

When there is no beer,
A goomy of wine and a joint will suffice

On A Serious Note

One of the attractions of Canning and the remote outback is the ever present risk that something very serious can and does happen.

KEEPING YOUR HEAD IS VITAL

Den,

Probably right where the pin is on the pic. Only about 200 mm sand over the top.

I still have 4 x 20 litre plastic jerry cans of fuel buried along the Canning somewhere. Two, I know where they are, but the other two are beside trees that look like every other tree. I did mark them on my POS Magellan gps, but it is buggered and last time I was out there I had no idea which tree. May be a little stale by now though.

Right here.................

A well deserved plug

A blatant well deserved plug to www.screensforbikes.com. Just got a screen for my DR and couldn't be happier.

Great finish, quality, price and easy to deal with.

and while i am at it...oztrim in Ringwood Melbourne.. for those riders ie: DR650s with seats as comfortable as concrete, for around $200 on your own seat.......comfort 2 U.

And not so well deserved .

In the US you can buy a brand new '13 DR650 for $5945 (US $) out the door in West Virginia (cycletrader.com).

In oz we say what a great bargin we are getting for $7490 a '13 demo ride away!!

hmmmmm

KTM bulldozer on the CSR

Dirt Doctor pulled his radio cord out of his helmet just seconds before RB (lead rider) warning us of a bad corner coming up, he used the bash plate on the 640 as a bulldozer blade bloody Lucky to stay on
