pano of our camp on the Sandy Blight Junction Road.

several images stitched together in a panorama of a pleasant grassy camp site.


The VW is just behind our Cruiser..

The road is described in "Beating About the Bush", which we were given in 2005 by Di and George, little thinking that we would be out here in a few years following the exact road Len constructed with the Gunbarrel Construction Party in the 1950s. With great care he surveyed the route over 800 km down to Giles, then after a series of mishaps; had to tow his grader and van with the dozer at 3 kmph along his newly constructed road in "the longest towing operation ever in the history of Australia" back to Giles for repairs.

We followed his route north in the opposite direction. He describes in the book how he thought of future travelers, and planned the route through some of the most interesting and attractive country in the center.
