Start Brisbane, Across to Birdsville, Birdsville track, Oodnadatta, Painted desert, Coober Pedy, Run the Anne Beadle incl Ground Zero, the Canning, Around the Gibb, Darwin, Top end run, Devils, Across the gulf to Cairns, down the coast to home.
Major trip with 15,000 klm run, complete around Australia the hard way, two cars already, would be good for 6, even to incorporate charity funding?
Should be able accommodate pick-ups along the way, coming and going (especially up the CSR) Flexible dates, depends.
I'm a 60plus nomad with a dualcab hilux with extras. (Shipload of tyres / wheels, 2x12 fridges, gene, 240 compressor plus 2x12v's, Inverters, 4-battery setup, tarps/poles plus "quicktent", yeah, too much)
Done a few good long bushbashes, a few runs to Daughter in SA and done the Googs track (once there is enough!)
No trailers, Whatdoyoureckon?
Maybe once we do the Gibb we might do the Tanami and back across the plenty?
Everything flexible.
My 2nd car at the start may not be going now, plenty of time.
I also have Hema 4wd navigator and laptop full of maps etc. GPS location not a prob.
Dont have VHF but UHF and a spare one.
