    Default East Coast to West Coast

    Hi all
    my wife and I are currently heading across the continent in our 4WD Truck.

    We have some excellent photos of the outback and are really enjoying the trip. Here are some photos from the trip so far.




    Please drop us a line if you have any ideas

    Cheers
    Steve

    Few days ago they were at the top of the Bight - about half-way across, but about 2/3 the way across in driving distance so far

    steve4wdaus! Your images are really nice and show the adventurous thing in its photos. I have some knowledge for this A coastline or a seashore is an area where land meets the sea or ocean, or a line that forms the boundary between the land and the ocean or a lake. I like coasts and I visited many coasts in my life Like South America's coast, Asia's Coast and few others.

    Hi All
    Firstly thank you for the interest. I must admit I lost track of this post. I am sorry to have not replied to those who took the time to comment. Mid Oct 15, Alison and I completed our 220 days around Australia. What a blast. http://www.4wdaus.com/archive/index.php/justabout
    Here is the final map of what we covered.

    And a few photos from the trip incl some of the other vehicles out there!






    Until our next trip

    Cheers from Steve

    Hi guys we are glad you two had a great safe trip.
    Wow 220 days went so quick.
    Thank you two for sharing your wonderful photos and stories as the trip you guys did is similar to what we are planning to do in a few years.
    Robyn Davidson , her trek is what we would like to do but with our canter not camels.

    Hi Pete and Kel
    It did fly quickly and we did feel we rushed the trip home. We are looking forward to heading back to the west coast again this year, but taking it slower through the Gibson Desert area. It still amazing to us how Robyn Davidson only lost her camels twice in the trips through the South Gibson. She is truly an incredible person to cross such a large section of Australia. Certainly would be a challenge to retrace her steps, I think the Canters would be much thirstier than the camels.
    Safe travels guys, hope to bump into you sometime.
    Regards
    Steve and Alison
