Lesser used tracks/Chemins de traverse

Wednesday the 5th September is the start date of our big trip across this continent. We have rented a 4 wheel drive campervan to enable us to travel on the lesser used roads, or tracks. We have been learning about driving conditions (watching out for kangaroos crossing the main roads is a particular local hazard -especially early in the morning, and in the evening), and not driving after 16h00 when going ‘west’, as the sun is so low, and full on, that one can’t see a thing ahead).

We’re also planning:  petrol consumption, location of petrol stations in the outback, shops for basic foods, daily driving times, places to stay (showers, WCs, swimming pools (or water holes)  etc) emergency equipment (satellite phone, emergency GPS locators, medical kit).

There are also plenty of amazing places not too miss; these have to be inserted in the plans too.

We are so excited about this trip, that many Australians would love to do to.


Mercredi 5 Septembre est la date de notre départ pour notre grand voyage à travers ce continent. Nous avons loué un camping-car 4 x4 pour nous permettre de circuler sur les routes les moins utilisées, ou les pistes. Nous avons appris que les conditions de conduite  sont assez particulières….comme :guetter les kangourous qui traversent les routes principales et sont  un danger, surtout  tôt le matin et a la tombée de la nuit , évidement…, de ne pas conduire après 16h00 en allant «vers l’ouest»,car comme le soleil est plus bas, on ne peut pas voir les choses en avance…..

Nous prévoyons aussi notre consommation d’essence, et la localisation des stations d’essence dans l’outback,ainsi que les magasins de produits alimentaires de base,les  lieux de séjour avec si possible:douches, WC, piscine etc l’équipement d’urgence (téléphone satellite, d’urgence localisateurs GPS) et trousse de secours,(on espere bien sur ne pas avoir a s’en servir…..)

 Il y a beaucoup d’endroits étonnants que nous ne voudrions pas manquer; ceux-ci doivent être integrés dans les plans de route aussi…. bref c’est une grande aventure qui commence….

 Nous sommes ravis de faire ce voyage, que de nombreux Australiens eux même aimeraient faire, si si meme eux, parait il….

    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost..
