Anne Beadell Highway.

No motorcycles in this, but good pics.
I was checking my mate Laurie Ford's sea kayaking site and came across his report of driving the Anne Beadell hwy with his American girlfriend in 2006.

Some good pics of the track.

Laurie is a bit of a legend in the sea kayak world, getting on a bit, tough as nails. He's the first person I know to have paddled solo across the Bass Strait. . . . . both ways, in 1982.

Great photos Beak. This is definately on the cards for the next few years. Your friend has a good set of cannons on him for an old (er) fella!!! (refuel photo) **ducks and misses back hand from other mature inmates**

Rossco you bloody bastard....

Point me in the direction of your planning/questions thread (if there is one) I had no idea you were heading out!!

Dannoj, yeah he's a very interesting fella. A real handyman.

When he gets a flat he pulls the tyre of the rim and patches from the inside. All done in the bush. He carries a lot of 12 volt power tools, like a little grinder for roughing up the inside of the tyre for the patch to stick.
His house in Dodges Ford, Tasmania is totally self sufficient, water, power even a composting toilet and yet he runs computers, internet, microwave cooker, music system, etc from 12 volt system.

And still paddles out into Bass Strait, making regular trips to Flinders Island with Elli, his lady. And out to Albatross Is on the NW coast.

He's also an opinionated old cuss, but he has the skills to back his words, that's one of the reasons we're mates. There's not too many real originals left I reckon.

Andrew.

I went through Kingoonya to Wirrulla on my pushbike in '96.
It's a nice road.
