    Didn't cost me anything but time. BUT, it was nessarry to convince the issuer that we were genuine about respecting the reserves and occupants.
    Like some of the American tribes The aborigional people of Australia have very strong ties to the land, and a myriad of traditions surrounding it. They see what the white man too often does to the land as an incomprehensible violation.
    Now that those Aborigonals that want to be, are finally established on involate reservations they are makin damn sure that we toe their line while we on their place.
    If I offend I WILL be thrown out and told not to come back.
    We are not actually staying on the reservations, it is just that we have to traverse them to get where we want to go. and that is Off one of the truley remote tracks in Australia, called The Canning Stock Route. Do a search, there's plenty of stuff around about it.
    Actually where we are heading is off the stock route. now how bloody silly is that? We are going OFF one of the most remote dirt tracks in the world.
    You do not do this without a satellite phone and a very good 4x4 vehical, and lots of water. Every year people die out here because they just didn't understand what the word remote meant.
    Wer'e doin it because we want to, and we can. I'll shoot for the camp. Goats, camels (yes that's right ferral camels) Roos and ferral donkeys, and maybe a dingo or two.
    Yep, I'll post the pic's when i get back.
    And if you're real nice mabe a diary. I intend to keep one.:):):)

    Hey Swanie,Do you really think you can haul enough Beer? Take care and have a great time. Oh yea I hope you trip on a five pound gold nugget and have to bring it back with you.;) catfish
     
  11. Running out of beer would be almost as bad as running out of tea or tucker, Swanie! :eek::D Better throw in a few extra cases of Swan or Emu, maybe a case or two of Coopers, just to be safe. ;)
