With office works behind us and complaining that we have taken so bloody long to actually get it together we started an itinerary, booking accommodations (‘I’ want a hot shower and warm comfortable bed during the desert’s freezing nights) and such interesting experiences as a ride on the Pitchi Richi Steam Train from Quorn to Port Augusta return in South Australia.  We had a five page, adventuring by vehicle  list of items so we set about highlighting this and that to stuff into bags, covered plastic boxes, coolers and the empty space of the spare, spare tyre that wouldn’t be available to purchase off the rack just anywhere! You gotta be well prepared and self sufficient so the boss says…Image

A 4WD book a xmas gift back in 1991, maps, file with tickets and booking sheets and that 5 page list that we are shortening considerably.

You can’t see the tyre behind the passenger seat but it’s full of stuff and enveloped with an woolen blanket and Adrian’s original Black’s circa 1962 backpack cover, the max trax were repositioned behind the tyre and front seat.

A selection of camping gear to consider taking along, I’m in trouble if we get stuck…

Dive bags to shove winter gear and covers to top the storage containers.
