Default Re: Roos, Emus-----an ME AGAIN./YAY!!

I'm probly in the wrong to take up public space, but maybe some of this could be of interest to potential visitors to the amazing Oz.
Neil,to cover some of your points:
We paid $1.68 at Drysdale last trip. (Bloody robbers!)This time we peaked at A$2.64/L near Giles weather station. At the time I think our coin was about 0.9 cf US $. So a ruff estimate suggests maybe US $ 9.50 per gallon - feel free to correct my mental maths.
The Tanami, from Wolf Creek meteorite crater toward Alice was , indeed, a trial. Toward dusk, we took a track to the west. Drove maybe 6 clicks (having seen one good camp site), so returned to set up camp at the site mentioned.
Funny thing to see A SINGLE SET OF BOOT PRINTS - ALONGSIDE A SINGLE SET OF CAMEL PRINTS. The prints were hours old, so they were long gone, and one does wonder which other idiots traverse this land.
And so the story never ends.
Travel safe eh.
Idiot Jeff.
