Just got it done before the Chinese Pox killed fun...

Anne Beadell Highway traverses South and Western Australia and is approx. 1400kms long
Surveyed and the track pushed through by Len Beadell and the Gunbarrel Construction Party.
Made for military purposes in late 50's when UK/Australia were testing nuclear bombs and rockets.
It was never made to endure but has been kept open by intrepid 4WD adventurers and goes through some great desert country.

Damn, you were lucky. I heard permits were being withdrawn as of two weeks ago.
Wasn't I? Couldn't believe what the fuss was all about when I had radio again.
At Ilkurlka, Robert the manger said nobody had been through for 7 weeks and the contractors said zilch, that was my only contact with people for a fortnight.
