Paul

The vast majority of the road follows the original alignment. Relatively short distance deviations revolve around new bridges and cuttings and a dry ground loop around flood prone areas.

Remember the entire road was sealed well before ww2 finished.

Hayseed beat me to asking that question about the command centre/radio wagon/instant caravan. Any chance of some more piccies - engine, inside cab, and internal facilities please Lang??? Doubt if one of them has ever been up the track before. :unsure:

Considering the suspension and gearing on the majority of vehicles participating I'd say you and Bev are experiencing the smoothest and most leisurely ride. :woohoo:

Like many others who would love to be there, I am following yet another of your adventures with a certain amount of envy.

Roll on and enjoy, keep up the posts, thankyou. :)
