Good to know that you got home in one piece Matt!

Awesome day hope we can repeat it soon!

On the way home I hit ANOTHER bug my neck looks quite out of shape now.

Time for that neck buff thingy.

At work chewing on non drowsy antihistamine and still feeling feeling drowsy .

Lake Gairdner, what's the go...?

Speed Week's on 2013 and I want to go and watch.

What's the spectator value? good or otherwise?

Do you have to take a heap of supplies? The website paints it pretty good.

The road out to the Eyre Highway Ceduna way, any good?

Cheers Folks!

Hey Barnacle Bill

I have been to Lake Gardner however not during Speed Week.

I rode west to Kimba then wandered tracks north to Gawler Ranges National Park. We entered the Park at Paney Homestead, headed up through the park then on to Lake Gardner. We left Lake Gardner and went home via Mt Ive Station through to Iron Knob. It was one of my best trips.

There's not much if any services north of Kimba with the exception of Mt Ive and some rainwater tanks in the park which I wouldn't rely on.

The tracks were mildly technical in a few places with some sand in places of mild to medium difficultly.

Make sure that you watch Worlds Fastest Indian before you go! Have a great trip!!

Thanks PBee, thanks Arborsmarty.

I did open a thread on the main page, haven't heard a cracker at this stage, maybe tonight when the pilgrims return from Mecca.

But good to get some knowledge from the locals.

Cheers Lads

Just don't go when it's wet which unfortunately as Aub says, has been nearly every year lately



A great "Adventure" worth enduring all the same
