Hi all,

Thought I would share some images from two recent trips I led to the Helena and Aurora Ranges in Western Australia.

The ranges are located about 450 km north-east of Perth on the edges of the Eastern Wheatbelt and the Goldfields Regions of Western Australia.

This is wonderful country to visit and I just love visiting it - it is remote country and you have to be well prepared.

Both the trips were fantastic and full of minor dramas but overall they were great fun.

I hope you enjoy the photos - if someone can advise me how to upload word documents I have written two stories about it for my Four Wheel Drive Club and I can upload them so everyone can read.

Karl

Lunch stop and airing down at the start point at Koolyanobbing (yes that is it's name)

Very nice, this is on my list of places to explore. I have done some but that was over 10 years ago...
Early December we are heading to Alexander Bay for a relaxing beach camp and fish.

I was involved in the creation of CampingWA with Chris and Kathy. I still even have the old shirts that we made.
I thought I recognised the name :grinning: :grinning: :grinning: :grinning:

I think we went camping with Dave, John Humphries and a couple of others one year down at Kilcarnup - I had a 80 Series and a Downunder Campertrailer.

Sort of lost contact with everyone - I visit the FB page occasionally but don't post much on it anymore.

I think we possibly did, I would have the photos somewhere I am sure. I would have had a 2006 Nissan Patrol maybe or Holden Jackaroo, cannot remember to be honest.
I did not even know there was a FB page haha.

I am not sure if I have any - I am really into my photography these days but wasn't so much back then.

Karl
I have always been into photography, but not sure where I stored those ones from back then. They may be on an old HDD as I cannot find them on Photobucket and that goes back to 2004.

Ah ok, I do not have any online. But maybe I do on a HDD somewhere. I will have to have a look when I get back Tuesday.

Also which 4wd club are you with now?
I am the President of the Four Wheel Drive Club of WA - it is a great club.

Next weekend we are heading up to Mogumber where we have access to a property for a damper cook up competition - I am just going for the food :grin::grin::grin::grin:

I will look at your club.
We will be moving out to a remote location in WA soon so not sure if it's going to be beneficial for us in the short term. I have heard great things about FWD club of WA.
