    Folks I did, (along with my dog and camper trailer), the first Club Darling River Run and I highly recommend it. Not sure how much water is out there now but it's probably still a great trip. Of course, corrugations are around and I recall a couple of Wranglers having suspension problems on that trip, so make sure things are tight. As Dave indicated, it is a great trip for first time outback tourers.

    Another 'bump', and thanks to Glen for the nice comments about the last trip out that way.

    No rush to make a decision as I won't need to make bookings until end of July... Just keeping it out there

    Okay, no worries. We’ll just need to plan the next one! Victoria High Country in Jan? Back to the desert mid year??
    Planning’s half the fun!

    Another bump...

    Ten weeks tomorrow the Darling River Runners set off for Wagga Wagga, so I thought I’d better start getting organised.

    We have 7 Jeeps in the Definite list and 2 “Thinking about it” and I’ve emailing all of us. In the next few weeks I will make reservations at the couple of caravan parks and the farm stay that we will be visiting, so I will need actual numbers.

    I've sent a Registration Form which asks for the details of your Jeep, names of everyone in your vehicle and your contact details, and an emergency contact just in case. Please fill out if you are definitely coming and return. Email is fine, or print and I’ll collect in two weeks at the next meeting. I’ll make reservation calls after the August meeting…

    If you can’t come then please let me know.

    When I put the Itinerary together, no one asked for payments up front. Once I have made reservations I will let everyone know the actual costs. The farm stay - Kallara Station – does offer a catered dinner. I think it was $20 on top of their $10 camping fee in 2013, but it was worth it. If you are interested, please circle on the reg form and I will confirm the price when I confirm our numbers with them.

    If anyone didn't get the email, or if there is anyone else who would like to come along - we still have space - please PM me with your correct email address and I'll send again.

    I think everyone has a copy of the Itinerary. All the guestimated costs and a list of things that you need to take is in it.

    Hope that is everything for now. As always, any questions, please email or call me!

    Thanks,
    Dave
