Tarcoola

Unread post by AJ » November 12th, 2013, 9:57 pm

Whyalla to Tarcoola and back again, just to see how far it is. Google would have been easier but a lot less fun.

My local 4WD Club organised a one week trip out to Maralinga and the bomb sites. Although I was unable to take the week off I decided to tag along for a night at Tarcoola.
We left Whyalla at 8am Saturday morning with 9 vehicles in the group. At Iron Knob we met up with the tenth vehicle, driven by Trevor Mk2.
From Iron Knob it was dirt, gravel, sand, clay and salt flat all the way to Tarcoola.

Sorry everybody, with the issues we are having atm, the pics just aren't being given justice - but they are well worth a look, go to the blog page in the post above! :D
