    Simpson desert ten yrs on meetup July 5th Coober Pedy start 2024

    Ok guys to save confusion I’ve started another Simpson thread.
    Meet at Coober Pedy july 5th 2024 at @MB mate’s place leave on Sunday 7th for Oodnadatta and Dalhousie springs, 8th into Mt Dare to top up fuel, a beer and a photo then back to Dalhousie.
    9th Darren to lead the convoy on the French line, this time we will do a steady crossing with 3 overnight stops due to partners and kids coming along to break it up a bit.
    I suggest we each book the Birdsville caravan park as sites will be at a premium due to the brb around that time as we will or should arrive on the afternoon of the 12th, that gives us an overnight in Birdsville before heading to haddon corner and Cameron corner on the way home.
    Please let me know if there are any other suggestions and if not we will lock it in, I assume Darren @mudrunner will be ok leading again and Mb will let us know the details of the place in Coober Pedy.
    Cheers Stropp

    Ps don’t forget your desert parks pass

    Apologies for the delay here Folks. I have been waiting for a reply from Michael in Coober Pedy to no avail.
    It appears he may have sold his underground motel as it has been found online now under a different trading name.
    Nevertheless AB, myself and our kids have just booked 2 x nights ( July 5th & 6th 2024 ) in a 3 bedroom underground apartment here at Michael’s old place:

    https://desertview.com.au/

    I can highly recommend this place as we spent a few weeks stuck there working in a Covid lockdown during 2021 and found it very secure with tools etc… Just a 10 minute walk into town, maybe 20 stumbling back :-)

    AB has just made contact with the Birdsville Tourist Park too and was advised to call back in 4 weeks time for booking as it’s too early for July 12th 2024. (exactly 1 year away today).

    Hi MB , I’ve emailed the desert view asking about group discount so will await their reply and if AB can ask Birdsville caravan park as well that would be great, no harm in asking even if they say no. Cheers Stropp

    Yeah very good idea to book early, I just did a spreadsheet to plan it all out ,looks like will be about a three and a half week trip showing down the pace considerably and checking out some things that have been on the list for a while. . Think will head back down the Birdsville track as have never done that before and be good to cross off the list

    I've got a new motor for it but still running the old batteries!
    We are 50/50 on coming now, finding it hard to justify the trip over a new kitchen

    Upon “Reflection” tonight Chrisso Brother I DO remember Mum complaining about not having cupboard doors in our kitchen for some 15+ years. It is beautiful though how we Family to this day still enjoy the memories of @AB nearly stepping ADHD (merely full of beans) foot as a Littlen onto Purni bores crust….
    Much ‘saferer’ these days but will be Lifelong Memorable if Ya’ll get my drift
