Comrades thanks to the 259 folk registered thus far... I guess the big and important thing to get the word out is for folk to try and resgister before March 1 .. reason being if we are seriously closing in on the 651 target to break the record I will book an GWR adjudicator to attend the event ( a cost of $15 k plus expenses) ..I need to give them 2 months notice.. should our numbers not be up around there at this time, one wont be booked and it will be evidence based sent to UK, should we beat the number. which can take up to 3 months to approve.

I will take regos right up until virtually the week of the event. but as a warning late regos may miss out on a few things... as leaving it that late wont allow me to order more things, certificates will be printed a couple of weeks out at latest etc etc

Early rego really really really helps me in the planning.. and being a one man band.. the earlier I have an idea, the better i plan. and the nicer I am.. and the happier I am.. the list goes on [image]

Capish??

I went to Broken Hill in Feb last year. From Adelaide, it was about 6 hours of dirt and dead wildlife, the last fuel stop was 200km's from BH with the scout getting 200km's to a tank.The reserve light came on as I pulled up at the bowser!
From Victoria, BH is 279km from Wentworth with one fuel station in between. It was closed when I went passed as it depends on when the owner wants to open up.

I won't be going as it's in the middle of nowhere and others might be thinking the same.
Good luck though, I hope you get the numbers and Aussies can claim the record.

Thanks Damien.. cant please all the poeple all the time.. Its a bucket list destination for many.. its hard in this country to find a spot that can back up an event this size.. accom, infastructure, roads that can be blocked off, friendly police, council etc etc.. The Scouts that are going and there are plenty have sorted out how to make the trip work for them... takes a bit of planning and forsight and a spirit of adventure. A can do attitude perhaps.... not for everyone maybe. Besides the fuel stop is re opening I believe.

Im a bit tired of explaining why the destination was chosen.. gone over it and over it  a few times to a small amount of people... some  complain but rarely offer solutions or ideas.. Oh hang on  yes I remember one guy thought Canberra would be perfect ( perfect for him , a nice easy 2 hour ride) ... that place cant even get locations/road closures correct /approved for the Blue Knights congregation events which is all Police of about 100.. ! 

Shame you will miss the event...all because the road is a bit boring ( but how cool is the outback of Australia).. but the end result will be worth it. And the friendships created.. and maybe we wont break the new record of 651 set last October.. but we will be setting some and we will be makiing history and for the people going.. we are excited about that. in our eyes the glass is half full...

Ride safe and thanks for the stats of how far etc etc.. yes we are aware, all very aware.. as are the folk from WA,, NT, Tassie. QLD, NT... NSW, ACT, SA and even some overseas folk.

I think I will shoot for a more direct route ... and take about 2.5 days.  

Looking like this atm:
6 May - Sydney - Dubbo (leaving around 9am and arriving around 4pm-ish)
7 May - Dubbo - Wilcannia (leaving about 8am and arriving around 3pm-ish)
8 May - Wilcannia - Broken Hill (leaving about 9am and arriving around lunch time)

Return journey will be something similar in reverse, leaving Broken Hill on 10 May. 

That is the rough plan, subject to change.  

Would be happy to meet up with anyone en-route for a coffee / beer / dinner / chat.

Cheers, Kim.

Hmm, Sydney to Cobar might be a stretch for me (about 8.5 hours + stops?), but I do like the idea of breaking the back of the ride on day 1 and spending a bit more time in B/Hill.  Will think about it more.  I have booked B/Hill accm - but nothing else yet.  

I will start up a separate thread for Sydney / Gong / Newcastle / Hunter (etc) riders planning to go - to see if any coordination is feasible ... or even desired (understanding some people like to ride alone).
