    Meetup in the middle 2014. Qld convoy/double crossing

    Hi all

    Just wanted to start the thread to nut out all the details for the qld convoy and doubly crossing of the desert.

    I presume that the east west crossing will take three days. Meaning we will want to leave birds vile on the 28th. How many days do you want to allow to go Brisbane to birds vile?

    And who is going? Really want to nut it all out ASAP to figure out if I can make this trip

    Cheers!

    I can't confirm anything yet with the double or single crossing until my new baby is born and see where we are at come closer to the dates.

    Going to drive up to Birdsville and park the camper trailer then do a double crossing. So i will meet anyone from QLD, NSW that wants to start from the east side and cross the desert to get to Dalhousie for the meetup.

    We'll, I have been checking the maps, and I presume anyone coming from Brisbane will pass through toowoomba. While I am more than happy to meet in birdsville, I would prefer to travel out there with others, as outback it makes it just that little bit safer.

    Travelling by myself I will take 2 days to get to birdsville, however if a convoy wants to take three days then I'm not fussed.

    I presume that everyone is happy with beginning the east west crossing on 28th June?

    Cheers
