If anyone is keen to meet up let me know....
Thanks Mark….weather is shaping up good….mid-high 30's and no signs of major rain.
We're stopping at the Daly River pub for lunch and healing the muscles at Mataranka Hot springs.
The two nights at Darwin is going to be a hoot!
I stayed a night at the Three Ways roadhouse last October. Never again. I'd rather ride in the dark to the Barkly roadhouse.
Thanks for the info China. We stopped over at the 3 ways on our way to Ayers rock at couple of years ago.
Ripped off with $120....double bed which sagged like shit. Toilet didn't work....water could only trickle out of taps.
I thought they would have cleaned up their game. We're looking at Tennant Creek on the way back 20 k's down the road.
We wont be at the first caravan park on the left. Tom (Fitzy- R.I.P) and I pulled up with our misses to stay overnight.
The manager had a vacancy sign up, took one look at our bikes, looked down and said "No accomodation". Fucken mole.
We ended up staying at a better caravan park further into town. We met some good and some weird people on that trip...
We got back this arvo after our 4,000 km trip and had a ball. No incidents at all.
They shoved us in the 'newer' accommodation at 3 ways, paid a bit more and it was comfortable enough.
Stopped at the Daly Waters pub - what an eye opener and great atmosphere. The manager said he knew Magilla.
We also stayed at Renner Springs….motorcycle friendly and we got full of piss and had a great time there.
Last night was at the Barkly Hotel - great people which has the best looking European backpackers around lol
Theres nothing better than cruising on 130-140km/h down the highway and not worry about getting pulled up!
There are two places we stopped at but moved pretty quickly on because of the fights....Elliot and Tennant Creek.
We're going to do one more trip before the end of the year - it you haven't done it make sure you put it on the bucket list.
