    Work Trip- Northern SA

    I have just returned from a 11 day work trip through Northern SA.
    Most of the time was driving but stopped often to look around and take photos.
    Day 1 started late and drove to Whyalla.
    Day 2 I traveled through the Flinders Ranges, then up to Marree.
    Day 3 I drove from Marree to Marla along the Oodnadatta Track.
    Days 4 & 5 were through the APY lands and visited Surveyor Generals Corner (corner of SA, WA and NT).
    Day 7 down to Port Augusta.
    Days 8 to 11 were spent visiting about 40 towns through mid and lower north SA.
    I traveled over 5000KM with over 2000KM being on dirt and the only issue I had was a windscreen cracked in two places.

    Absolutely loved this trip and wish I could do this for work all the time.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.
