Great Central Rd Trip Report
« on: 24 August, 2016, 01:45:20 PM »
Hi everyone,

Due to the file limitations on the club forum I asked our web service to load the trip report on our website.  It is available at

 http://www.westernpaddle.com.au/?page_id=245

as a Word document download.  There is also a full picture gallery of all the photos from the trip available for any who would like to browse it.

Be yourself - everyone else is taken.

Top effort Dave
Just finished reading your trip report.
Well done to you and Ruth I'm sure you'll
remember it for years to come.there's some
great photos in the post. I'm sure there's
more to come. I should be
covering some of the same tracks in a few
weeks (Oodnadatta and GCR )

DID YOU KNOW......Great Northern Highway links Western Australia's capital city Perth with its northernmost port, Wyndham. With a length of almost 3,200 kilometres (2,000 mi), it is the longest highway in Australia

Dave, did you save a trip/log/GPS file for this trip?
More specifically, one you'd be happy to share?

No problem, I'll email you the GPX file from the plan I did on Pocket Earth, and also include a grab of the plot image.
