I am hoping to be able to do something like this during the summer. This would be the highway stretch to get to several trails I know and then likely another 100km + all offroad ( which I havnt had the chance to map out yet) to get to scenic off grid camp sites. I did something like this last ear but it was rushed and wasn't and there are a few spots I would change. 20210116_083833.jpg
The only problem with this route is that I need to use my "rock crawler" instead of the daily/overlander to get into the sites. The crawler only has 2 seats and I doubt my wife will want to come with on a trip like that, which leaves her and the kid at home. Also in the middle of purchasing a new home for the family so fuel costs and time away are going to be at a premium lmao.

I'm sure it will still be a fun trip.

2021 Plans so far is a trip to Fraser Island in Apr/May, followed by a week long snow trip across the Kosciuszko National Park in July.

First trip we will be heading north to spend 8 glorious days on the Great Sandy Island.
Meeting a few lads in Goulburn, travel up to just outside Nambucca heads for the night, then off to Inskip for night 2 with the next morning at O dark hundred boarding the barge across to the Island.

yep, COVID changed our plans last year. We invested in the backyard instead and the Square Drop stayed in the garage. Yesterday it got pulled out. Today the dirt for the gardens got delivered. Thankfully I do the heavy work, the wifes green thumb will be buzy all summer and
I will be overlanding.

where...... likely within the 100 mile rule since COVID is far from being erradicated or controlled. I'm happy to explore my backyard. Avoid non essential travel.
Keep that travel bubble small.. Get out, enjoy, be safe eh

Well... this year hopefully, we will get to do a Trackless Desert Crossing Trip but also take in the Gawler Rges; Googs Track before tackling the desert to find the Geo-Ctr of the desert.... providing the borders remain open... From my calls distance will be around the 9400kms mark...
Looks like a great trip, how long you taking to complete it?

Envious....

We're looking at completing vaccinations by October .........................2022!

Local trips around the country still viable though - we've done some trips into the coffee country, high sierras, and páramos so far.

Hoping to be in Argentina, assuming that the quarantine restrictions make it viable, at year-end. Let's see.
