2012 June Tri Corner trip - Trip Reports
Wow the Main part of our trip is now over!
The car is filthy covered in mud and dust, dust and more dust.
I have shaven and had a bath for the first time in several days... think my last shower was in Birdsville... apparently I was on the nose :oops:

It will be several weeks before I gather my memories but as I do they will be recorded here.. but that is no excuse my fellow travelers as you too can add photo's and comments so please start adding... soon!

Victor, Merv (Dad) and I separated from the main group at Birdsville and went our own way so from this point out trip will be different as we headed into the Carnarvon National Park for a few days before heading home.

To start with the picture below is a complete track record of our actual trip as taken from My GPS in the car, attached is also a Google Earth KLM file if you wish to zoom into the locations.

Re: Tri Corner trip June 2012 - Trip Reports
So many fantastic locations and way too little time to do them all !
Add to this the Cape trip and 4WD Action trip to Birdsville and we could easily be away for several months!!
Just wish I had the time to do them all :cry:

So how many days and what are your objectives ?
I know several here wish to camp back on the Paroo River so you may already have a small tribe going Confusedhock:

Mate that is exactly where some of the others like Victor and Johnny want to go and camp on the Paroo River as it's one of those special spots we stopped at on the tri corner trip we did earlier this year..
We think that if you really want to it's possible to make the park in one day provided you leave early, otherwise it will be early on the 2nd day..
I think they were talking about making it only about a week long trip but who knows it may suit them also..

The Park is also the special habitat area for the Bilbi but unfortunately the special fences were breached and the wild cats got in and devastated the population!

Dave

There is a bunch of members planning on possibly doing just that sometime this year!
It may be an extended long weekend or possibly a week long trip - stay tuned if you think you may be able to attend.
