If you have ever headed away on a remote camping trip, you will know the amount of packing required – tents, bedding, cooking and eating utensils, not to mention chairs, cold food storage, and the remaining food. It also is important to ensure it is packed in the correct order, for example so that tents come out before bedding. Now try multiplying the logistics by twelve, for the number of people on this trip, and with supplies (including bulk fresh water) for nine days!
Zig lives a short distance outside Darwin, so we made his place our first stop and sorted out our gear there. He also has an ornamental pool and aussirose thought hard about taking a dip – then she saw the sign. LOL This also was a good time to review our route (VTers 1+1 and Gillybob with map) and a last chance to check for any items we’d overlooked.
There are no photos of the preparatory work, but I really must express huge appreciation for the tremendously detailed work done by Zig (especially) and others in the group to plan and prepare for us to get to this point. From designing the itinerary, contacting and arranging visits, organising vehicles and hire equipment, then finally the menus and food lists. A trip such as this is a major undertaking – full points that they did it so well!
Directions: Wherever convenient!
