Back to Robertstown, for those who wish, for debrief, refreshments and convivial discussion around a camp fire, before a further night camped there.

Wed, I might have a further ADV ride and head back to Gawler late in the afternoon.

Anyone can get involved with any of that at any stage.

Interested??
Would love to come along Trev, however I'm going to be off the bike for another 6 weeks or so yet..

Anyone else going up to Bill's memorial next week? We are heading off on Weds in the Landy going up via the Gawlers, Borefield Track, Lake Eyre and the Inside Birdsville Track
And then after going to see my folks on the Sunny Coast we are coming down the Strez or maybe the old strez. Then to Mt Fitton, stop in and see Dave and Caroline, then home.

Bills memorial.....

Hey Nazza, and anyone else who's about.
When is the memorial and is it the one happening at Big Red that i have seen bit and pieces about? I am heading West to East for a ride in the sand, leaving Adelaide on tuesday morning, and probably arriving at Birdsville on the 4th or there abouts.

Cheers

Cheap ADV Haven

Bernie, who rides with us, has a house at Willaston, near Gawler. It has a spare bedroom, with access to kitchen, bathroom, TV, etc. It also has substantial undercover areas with workshop type facilities. He also rents out cheap vehicles as part of his business. If anyone knows of an ADV rider looking for some time off of sleeping on the ground during their travels, maybe while needing some repairs etc, Bernie is happy to offer these facilities at a very cheap rate to help travellers.

This is where Sten (from Denmark) stayed recently while waiting for the repairs to be completed on his bike after smashing the sump up in the Flinders.

You never know, it may be of help to someone.. Good on ya Bernie..... He can be contacted on 0404885554.

Little Desert NP

Anyone spent any time at the Little Desert NP? (Extends from just south of Dimboola, and west to the SA border.)

...or know anyone that has?

Just after any info on general track quality etc. and suitability for camping.

TIA

Yes, try XRMan and GagsD2 from the Green Triangle Group. They've been up there sebral times I think. Way too much sand for me to have joined them.

....well, I haven't exorcised any of his demons after I bought his bike off him, so maybe I should hold a seance or two before I go and 'summon his spirit' - probably easier to just phone him tho

As for the sand..........is it ALL sand? Was thinking of the campground near the Dimboola end - just need somewhere to stop for the night before doing some work in Horsham the next morning, then up to the Grampians for a couple of days riding the tracks there with Allan and Laurie.

Will do. I've heard about the 'green triangle' group before - what area does this cover? Do riders tend to disappear mysteriously from here - in which case, trying to contact any of them would be a mute point , or is that a seance job too?
