G'day youse mob, Glenn has been posting on the General Discussion forum about a planned trip from Victoria to Cooktown in June '18 - many of the participants have fallen by the wayside so I have decided to bite the bullet and plan a trip (primarily for 60 knotters) from Boonah to Cooktown, up the coast, returning via Longreach on the way home. At this point I am looking at flexible dates around June 2018, I honestly believe that due to weather, mechanical and personal factors that pre-booking definite stopover dates will not work. I'm happy for experienced trippers to advise me of how those factors are managed ! The plan will be to fly a couple of hours in the morning, break for middle of day, then another couple of hours to the overnighter (which will have fuel available) - that would give about 250nm per "flying" day, and stopovers would be planned (where possible) where there are BEDS available - did I mention that I'm OLD ??? Anyway folks, it's all a dream at the moment, but I'm committed to the process - please do not hesitate to reply via this forum by post or pm, every single bit of advice will be gratefully accepted Cheers BP PS anybody got ideas on how a support vehicle might work ???
