Ok, so the KDR is now Officially happening.

So I'd like some feedback from those definitely coming on the following itinerary options:

Plan 1:
Wednesday:
Leave Wednesday arvo (or earlier) and see how far we get and free camp when we've had enough
Thursday:
Arrive Thursday midday (I am towing and therefore restricted to 1 double bubble km/h)
Have radios fitted, collect GPS trackers and receive briefing
Head out to Lake Perkolilli on completion and setup camp
Head back into town for street party if anyone wants to or hang in the tranquility of Lake Perkolilli
Friday:
AM - Head out and verify Checkpoint locations
PM - If required for the Prologue - man Checkpoints
PM - If not required, head back and chill out around a campfire cook up or head in to the start line for the evening events
Saturday:
AM - Head out to man allocated Checkpoints for Lap 1 & 2
PM - Head back to camp on completion
Sunday:
AM - Head out to man allocated Checkpoints for Lap 3
O/C - head back to the start line to return GPS trackers and have radios removed
PM - Head back to camp to chill or stay for the Presentations
Monday:
AM - Head for home

OR

Plan 2:
Thursday:
Leave Thursday morning at 0 dark o'clock
Arrive Thursday arvo (I am towing and therefore restricted to 1 double bubble km/h)
Have radios fitted, collect GPS trackers and receive briefing
Head out to Lake Perkolilli on completion and setup camp or if anyone wants, remain in town for the street party and they can then try and find us in the dark afterwards......
Friday:
AM - Head out and verify Checkpoint locations
PM - If required for the Prologue - man Checkpoints
PM - If not required, head back and chill out around a campfire cook up or head in to the start line for the evening events
Saturday:
AM - Head out to man allocated Checkpoints for Lap 1 & 2
PM - Head back to camp on completion
Sunday:
AM - Head out to man allocated Checkpoints for Lap 3
O/C - head back to the start line to return GPS trackers and have radios removed
PM - Head back to camp to chill or stay for the Presentations
Monday:
AM - Head for home

I'm a fan of Plan 1, worked well last year, if neither plan works for you, I'm happy to entertain alternatives or make arrangements to meet up somewhere.

As Im unsure if my patrol will be ready by then i think its best take me name off THEIR list so i dont muck people around.

hopefully if the gods are nice to me and "end of october" means before the desert race then if come as moral support..  :cheers:

i would be more incline for option 2 BUT if you did option 1 then im sure id be able to catch you on the road if we all have an estimated meeting point of arb kal by 12

My son flies in Wed night and is planning to come with us so we will not leave until Thursday at around 5am
We are towing too so all things being fair we will land in Kalgoorlie early afternoon and head straight to Goldfields Offroad then out to the Lake.
Was thinking of trying to make it in for the street party.
Fri, Sat and Sun as it comes
Head back Monday morning.

A few questions.
Any news if we will be getting radios this year (after they were pinched)?
What/Where is the briefing?
Any news on checkpoint allocations yet?

A few answers.....

All current info points to Yes

What/Where is the briefing?

More for me, so I can brief you guys on the what, where, how etc.

Any news on checkpoint allocations yet?

Not yet, I'm expecting a similar dispersion as last year but if I get told and asked to pass it on, I will post here.

Yes received and submitted. Advised wanted checkpoint only and linked to WPC.
On a side note, the MS online licencing system seems to be broken, I can do the event management course and assessment but it will not save.

So can I assume that is confirmation that you are both coming?

Which itinerary plan are you thinking of following?
Are you intending to swag, camper trailer or caravan?

Hey Ropes, yep fingers crossed.

Will have a trailer and haven't discussed travel options as yet.

Been under the pump since returning from northwest desert trip, will let you know shortly, though I think we maybe pretty flexible.
