Trailer Boat Club

Thursday 4.30pm sound fine by me 'livit'. I'll see you there. I'll be the one coming through the door sideways...
By the way, just got back from Kakadu and there's not bastard around so did'nt manage to catch up with locals as I had hoped. Not to worry, we don't need them anyway.
Mowster, I'm in for a half dayer, full dayer what ever next weekend 31st/1st. Djukbinj NP just east of Adelaide River off Arnhem highway is a nice little jaunt-not too far away (1 hour road) then dirt road, 4WD tracks and Blacksoil floodplains. Might put some chux over the air cleaner and fit the roo bar. Heaps of wallabies out there and last time I went there nearly had 2 or 3 run into me. Have some helmet cam footage of one that leapt over and completely cleared the rear of my missus bike when she was riding in front of me. Shit myself.

West Alligator

Hi all,
We had our meeting last night at the trailer boat club attended by a few. A couple of quiet ones and chat about upcoming ride to West Alligator heads as well as an ogle over mowtser's new Beemer - Nice bike !. We have agreed on the weekend of 14/15 November and plan to get away fairly early-probably 8-9 am departure. We have all day to get there and are camping overnite. Register your interest here on this thread so we can get an idea of numbers- all welcome on suitable bikes (Dual-purpose, Road registered) At this stage there will be my partner Helen taking our Hilux with Catering gear (enough plates, knives forks and cooking gear etc for everyone) Camping gear, eskies, Spare fuel, tools and anything else that riders want us to carry. The best shot would be to meet at Coolalinga say at 7.00 am so everyone can get their food (2 lunches, 1 dinner, 1 breaky) and drinks to pack into the vehicle. If there is anything large like swags, we may need to pick these up prior or have them dropped off to my place-let me know if this is the case. There may also be a second vehicle involved if Stu's wife Sue decides to come along in a second Hilux.
Hopefully the weather will hold out or those balck soil floodplains are going to be interesting. If the weather does turn to poo then the ride to West All. will be called off and alternative such as Litchfield can be made as an overnighter.
Give us your thoughts and feedback on the above as we have a couple of weeks to finalise plans and are open to suggestions.
Cheers kezzajohnson http://www.territoryon2wheels.com.au

Kakadu National Park

Hi,

Just been in touch with Ros from Kakadu NP HQ-regarding ride to Pococks Beach West All - read following

to : KakaduNationalPark [KakaduNationalPark@environment.gov.au]

Thanks Ros,
Myself and a bunch of mates are planning a ride (motorcycles) to West Alligator Heads (Weather permitting) on 14/15 November 2009.
Are there any issues regarding permits, access or conditions that you know of- They are all road registered dual purpose bikes with licenced riders and support vehicle.
Cheers Kerry Johnson

Hi Kerry

West Alligator Head generally closes early in November or as soon as the first storms arrive. The road is pretty corrugated but it sounds like you are all experienced. You do not require a permit.

Keep checking the Road Report or give me a call any time.

Cheers
Ros

All sounds great. I'm in. I've got a large 110litre esky that hold ice for quite a while if you need one and other asorted camping gear. Sounds like you've probably got all the gear but let me know if you are missing anything, I might have it. I've also got a roo jack and air jack if the vehicles need them.

Cheers

Great !

No worries Mark-Esky is under control and I may even borrow a Waeco from the Depot. I don't have an air jack or roo jack though. maybe consider. Stu floated idea of hiring epirb I think $22.00 for weekend or I can get a satellite phone from work. What do you think ? At the moment, me, you, livit, mowster and PodgeNT coming and hopefully we can get a couple more.
Talk soon

West All

Gday boys,
Don't think rain has been an issue there yet. Kakadu said they close it as soon as it rains. By the way camping is $5.00/adult per night and alcohol is allowed.

Eh? Pococks Beach

What no dust!!!
I cant ride without dust.
I might have to tape an open can of dirt to the bars, just in case.

Seriously, I reckon Parks will close the road if it gets too wet. If we keep in contact with them as our ride gets closer we'll be OK. After a long dry you'd be surprised how much can be soaked up.

We have a couple of alternatives if the road closes.

Mowster, does your plane go over that area much?
