Dr G

Take more water than you can carry and let the coppers know where you are. It'd be nice to meet one day.

Dr Goggles,
I did a Google earth search of Lake Lefroy. It looks promising its a pity about the causeway across the middle.
With all of the mining around that area and the land yachts it may be difficult getting clear access.


Hey Whitworth,
The lake I was talking about is Lake Lefroy south of Kalgoorlie . There have been a couple of images posted on the DLRA message board lately.

http://www.dlra.org.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=772&start=45

If there was an event there it would be prohibitive for most of the East coast people unless we shared semi's to get there.Even so if it takes 6000k's to race who am I to complain.

Next week I'm going to go over to Gairdner and also check out Island Lagoon which is just south of Woomera and with a bit of luck do a GPS plot across it so at least someone can say " I drove across it and have the plots for a seven mile straight track".........I just have to go there , I need to see salt , stand on it ....feel like I've been there ...otherwise it just  starts to feel like forever since I've stood on the good stuff.

Right-oh, that's cracked it!
Was going to be sensible, stay home, save $, work on unfinished projects... 

"The Mongrel" leaves early Monday! Wanna lift Doc?

Arrive Lake G on Tuesday arvo. 
Leave Lake G Wednesday midday, arrive Woomera Wednesday evening.
Poke around Island Lagoon Thursday and Friday.
Leave Woomera area Friday midday, arrive Silverton Pub Friday evening?
Satdee - head home.

Of course, there'll be the temptation to stay at Lake G with the other guys that show up for the working bee.
Bottle of Jammie and I ain't driving the next day. Could be dangerous at Lake G.

I know you have standards, but if you held the can around where the label was readable, we could have sold a lot more posters, not to mention the advertizing revinue we lost.
Smoking the "FAG" with the logo showing would have really added to the net also.
Ferd assures me that he can Photo Shop all that stuff in, but can I trust him ? sad
