Re: Traveller's Enquiry re Salt Lake Opportunities

If the pile of cash in the lounge room blocks the view of the TV you could use a bit of it to fly in and out. Mt Ive has an air strip for small planes and there’s a charter company that comes to SpeedWeek with a couple of planes.

Ah, dream-on... just covering all the options.

Also t...

Re: Lake Omeo 2012

My friend Ben took these pics on Lake O last week (Jan 14). He said there was shallow water up one end of the lake and he was able to drive "for ages" and got the old rod over 100Kph. There were heaps of tracks and ruts all over the place. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-1VoOnaS_4u4/UPt-FPMpTRI/A...

good trailer tech info

Sooner or later ya havta think about a transport trailer, if you’re new to that game (like me) tuck this one away (unless you’ve got a posh bus). Pretty good info and advice about trailer stuff: pictures, descriptions of bits, product comparisons, why’s and why-nots. http://www.hardingscaravans.com....
