Looks great!
by: Birgit

Thanks for the kind words! Much appreciated.
Wow, you are getting organized well ahead. And you have obviously done your home work.

Geoff, that looks excellent to me.
Hm, I see on the second day you first drive all the way to Fitzroy Crossing, and then nearly 100 km back again to camp at the lake. Are you sure you want to backtrack that much?
Ok, I guess to the boab quarry it's only about 50 km. And they are both very beautiful campsites. And you do have enough time... Why not, ey?

I have nothing else to add :-). That looks really good to me.
