Another Border Track trip July 13/14 2013

Just a quick note to say the weather forecast for Keith is :

Fri - Rain at times . . . max 13oC / min 5oC
Sat - Rain at times . . . max 15oC / min 5oC
Sun - Rain at times easing . . . max 17oC / min 11oC

So, be prepared for some damp tracks . . . will make the sand driving easier, but might present a fair amount of mud in places south of Red Bluff, and also into the Big Desert region.

Maybe if people get a chance, pick up a small bag of firewood at a servo to bring along.
We can usually pick up ample on the way into Red Bluff camp, but it may be hard finding anything dry.
If we have a bit of dry stuff bagged, and it's not raining, we can have a fire no probs.
If it happens to be raining, well, it might be an early night, and we can take the wood home to use another trip.

Looking forward to doing this trip in the wet for the first time, catch most of you up at the truck stop, and tezzag / Russ, see you up on the BT at the northern boundary of Ngarkat around 10.

Ngarkat vehicle entry fee is $10 per vehicle, might pay to have right change.

No other camp or access fees (gotta love Vic Parks).

Edit - Just checked current info, park entry now $10 per vehicle (up to 8 pax) concession $8.

No worries Greg, added you and Kerryn to the list :)

Glad you can make this one too, if you haven't done the BT before, or into Big Desert / Wyperfeld a bit, this is a great drive.

See you 7am Sat morning then.

Bummer Shane, ah well, see if you can make the day drive BT north in August mate.
You can do part of what you missed on MSNP trip.

Nah Ryan, just $10 a car, or concession (I guess pensioners, unemplyed, etc ?) is $8.
So you would just need $10 and that is to access the days drive down Ngarkat CP.

Yep, me too :)
Looking forward to an interestig weekend of tracks, should be great.

This weather might get through to the border a bit, but what the heck.
Not too bad at the moment, winds are light, and really not much more than a sprinkling of rain.

Expect you got the new shocks in and sorted ?
Will find out in the morn, about to shut down and go get some sleep, ready for 5am wake up.
