Birdsville Again

Recommended Posts

Hi JG,

 

I was also in YBDV, I flew in Thursday & left Monday. It was a very windy day for arrival on Thursday with a strong X-Wind blowing on our arrival.

 

We tracked from Bindoon (Perth) to Kalgoorlie-Forrest -William Creek -Birdsville, coming back we went direct to Coober Peedy - Forrest-Kalgoorlie-Albany, West to East great tailwinds at 9,500 around 35-40kts.

 

Cheers

Pretty remote country. Nev.

It's all back paddock to someone. They manage their cattle and sheep down there, and call it home. I always take note of water points and the vehicle tracks that lead toward a homestead. Those locals are the most capable to access the country. I have instructions to the recipients of my SPOT messager to first try to contact those station owners if I message that I'm down and stranded and need assistance. And I carry cash to be able to pay for that assistance......

Good on you sir a little thumpy on that route i,d think eh.

West to East went quickly coming back it was a bit bumpy for a while so we climbed up to avoid the bumps and the headwind hit us, all in all it was a great trip very enjoyable
