  • Two Wheel Driving in the Flinders Ranges, 1979 style.

    There had been a lot of rain recently and most were stranded because of the road conditions.

    We spoke to the bloke in the Louisville and he said "if you can get over that hill, you can get to Maree"

    Sounds good to me, so I disconnected the load distribution part of the hitch (giving more weight over the rear wheels) fitted the wheel chains,

    had a nip of Green Ginger wine, and over we went..............

    We got into Maree where the publican had shower facilities for $1 each but when he heard from the trucky that we were coming,

    he said "it was a champion effort to get here and there would be no charge for the showers!

    The photographers shadow in the third pic is Adynaton, the LOML since 1974, we were on our honeymoon at the time.

    These pics were taken with some sort of self developing camera, but I can't remember what.

        It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
