    Simpson desert meet 2013

    I am A VET of the simpson desert having crossed her 6 times now, well 5 and 1/2 due to not getting across this year due to water laying around on the eastern side
    MY PROPOASAL
    2013, MAX 4 4X4 INCLUDING MY NISSAN PATROL.
    SO 3 other vehicals with maybe 1 spare seat per car. ie 8 photographers in all
    The trip would need to be well prepared with well maintained vehicles and equipment
    The Simpson part would be 2 weeks in the desert, so you would need water food and self sufficiency.
    you would need 3-4 days either side of the trip to get to the meeting place on the Western side of the desert.
    we would visit Dalhousie springs and ruin, Purni bore French line Waa line Qaa line Poeppel corner etc finishing at Birdsville, BIg red etc.

    feel free to express interest and we can see where it will go
    cheers don

    I`m keen Donny so pencil me in. I know it`s a realistic dream and one quite doable. At this stage I think I`d like to come along. Don`t know how etc, but early days eh. Love those red sand hills and would dearly love to get on one.

    I'm keen! The missus will want to come but isn't into photography so she may want to go with a group that will suit her interests as well. I'll put it to her though and see what she says!
