Friday morning at 7.30am the big trip west begins. Work is slack during September so I figure I have the time to do this trip now, so I should do it while I can. Not looking forward to the first day drive from Ballarat to either Crystal Brook or Pt Pirie, somewhere around the 900km mark. I figure I'll go via Mildura and skip the drive through Adelaide. From there I'll head to Fowlers Bay which is another 700km, and I'm hoping to arrive there late afternoon on the Saturday. Huge dunes and whales seem to be the main attraction there. Not sure how soft the dunes will be and whether they will be buggyable or not for me but there's one way to find out. Figure I'll stay and explore the place on the Sunday and Monday then head across the Nullabor on Tues stopping to take lots of pics of the cliffs. Hopefully, there'll be some wind to get the kap rig up over the bight for some interesting photos. Overnight somewhere around Cocklebiddy then off to Lefroy on Wednesday....unless the wind is wrong and it's wet, then it will be down to Esperance and maybe have a buggy on the beach with Chook, Gumnuts and DJsylk.
Will try and use the phone for some updates and pics as I go and should have a shirt load of photos & vids when I get back. I'll keep an eye out for good buggy spots on the way over and can always stop and spend a day or two on the way back.
