Default Dirt Strips

Thank you to all for the kind words and PM's.

Although XTE was looking very clean in the photos, she is no stranger to the Outback dirt strips where some of our best adventures have been away from the normal airports.

On of the reason's we chose the RV-10 was because of how good it is on unimproved strips.
There is a growing market of 'Farm Stays" happening in Australia and we hope to explore some of them next year.

This is some of the places we have been to....

Bonus Downs Farm




Birdsville (on the edge of the Simpson Dessert )


John Elder's Cotton Farm,Narromine

Default Australian Visit

Hi Vlad,
There are so many strips in the Outback,many that are unmarked,you will have a blast trying to find some of them.

Make sure you look us up when you come over.

With the exchange rate the way it is ,us Aussie's are surprised we do not see more visitors from the USA, it would be a great holiday.

Cheers,

Great write-up, fantastic photos. Enjoyed reading and seeing what your part of the world looks like.

Maybe someday can make it down to see it myself.

Best regards,
Mike Bauer

Let's go Mike. Via Russia, Japan and Indonesia. I hope we won't be deicing all day for a quick outback ride
