Made it! Phew. Rough track in. But fun. How do I post videos on here? Seems like I can only put pics on from iPhone?

Headed off to Ramingining today.

Great drive. 100 km bush track. Good creek crossings. Lots of ruts and corrugations and dust! All in a days work

Only ended in Maningrida for one night and worked most of it :( have moved on to Ramingining, been here since Wed. Should finish in morning. Then back to Darwin via Gunbalanya.

Back out this week. Crossing was nearly 700mm at the start. Running pretty hard. Big saltie waiting at side too. !!

A nice drive out there isn't it? Mind you, at times you can lose yourself in the hum of the tyres reflecting back off the scrub and everything looks so much the same.

Magic!

Always a big croc or two at Cahill's Crossing, and yet the local kids will be in and out of the water, and playing on the rocks, fishing etc. Water is right up by the looks of those pics. Tide + rain was it?

Always a big croc or two at Cahillís Crossing,

Great spot to watch them feed, but itís amazing that more folk donít get taken. I guess itís because they get plenty to eat at that spot?

Yeah it was a combination if rain and high tide. Is a nice drive tho. Don't think I've ever been over there and not seen a croc.
