With scud busy racing this year, it is unlikely we can put together a truck to the Alice like we did last year.  Anyone interested in driving to Uluru from Adelaide instead?  Leave on a Friday morning, overnight underground in Coober Pedy and reach Uluru mid-afternoon on the Saturday.  Sunset at the Rock after a quick blast out to Kata Tjuta followed by dinner and overnight at Sails in the Desert.  On the Sunday there's time to climb or at least visit the Rock up close,  then head back to Coober Pedy with a quick detour the the Cannonball memorial (or King's Canyon) and arrive back in Adelaide on the Monday (or add a day somewhere to arrive Tuesday).  Last time we squeezed in a visit to the ghost town of Woomera too.

When?  Well, any time between now and September but probably July (avoiding school holidays etc).  If you haven't done these roads, be assured they are in excellent condition.  Please let me know if you are interested.

If we can manage a truck option, I'll definetely be in it.
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.

What have you done to yourself? I've just had surgery because cortisone and therapy were not working - then again, only surgery was going to move the bone :scared:

With regards to the thread, I'm out. I would love to join in but I'm moving overseas in early August and won't be able to escape from Adelaide in June or July. I think I've been saying this or something similar for the past few years  :p

Have fun, and if I weren't going through a quarter life crisis I would most definitely try to join in with my non exotic  :thumbsup:

No truck - the trip is from Adelaide to Uluru and back.  I'd love to find enough other guys to truck too but they aren't there.

No dates will be mentioned here.  We have another place for that. :)

Would be a pretty nice drive. Ive done many trips up to Glendambo over the years. I was up there in early march and they've been grading the sides of the stuart highway. my x5 copped a beating (broken windscreen & dented panel) from oncoming road trains throwing up stones etc.

Having said that, I'd love to do a long drive but my only daily is the 1m and it's not really all that comfortable at long distance highway cruising.

I now need to find myself a nice alternative that could partake in such an event.  :D

It can't be any worse the a Porsche 911.

Thanks for the tip on the roadworks.  We'll need to keep an eye on these.
