    Amazing how 90% of international tourists will never see any of this as they stay in Sydney and Melbourne and go home and boast to their friends about how they have 'done' Australia.

    Luckily, I've not been to the East coast and have visited a few out of the way sites in North and Western Aus.

    I'll post some picures one day.

    I thought Soi Yodsak had been voted No: 1 in the new 10 Wonders of The World.

    Karajini National Park

    It was decided by Johnny Longprong that after a big night in Broome trying to get laid in the local pub that we should get out of town quick smart … he’d clearly had a little too much fun the night before with the young French lass in the camper van. Some us had flights to catch a few weeks down the track and if we were gunna back home in time via the notorious Anne Beadell Track then it was gunna have to be pedal to the metal for a few days.

    Next stop was Karajini National Park in the Plibara region of northwestern Australia. The park is notable for its gorges, waterfalls and water holes, but has been buggered by nazi style rangers who pretty much watch your every move … apparently keeping an eye on the Indigenous folks sacred land. Check out the campsite on Google Earth and how close it is to an amazing gorge … the bugger is it is just about impossible to get too close to the gorge without some dopey ranger saying you can’t do that.

    It was a long and tough drive into the place and we were knackered by the time we arrived. Last thing we needed was some dipstick ranger telling us how it was. Big Kev put his message across to the young chap away by turning this song up a little loud when the bloke came in telling us what we could and couldn't do etc -

    We were soon “off our faces” again, and here are a few pics of camp that night.

    One of our members would like to know if you ate any dingo and how you cooked it, I won't name him as he wishes to remain anonymous, but here's his message.

    Hey dd, can you ask wayne if he ate any dingo and how he cooked it, don't want to ask him myself as you know what the vegan liberals are like on here.

    Meekathata Western Australia

    Next day we got away early headed for Meekathata in Western Australia and skipped breakfast with the view that if we got there early enough we could bag a kangaroo and have a good roast leg of roo and veggies for dinner.

    We stopped at a place called the Newman on the way … not much there except heaps of iron ore. The mining game is going quite well there … and not a bad place to pick up a bit of work according to the bloke at the service station. Apparently unskilled labourers earn more than $50 an hour, truck drivers more than $120,000 a year, whilst tradesmen can pretty much name their price.

    Apparently smart backpackers get in there for 3 months and earn enough to fund their travelling for the next 9 months of the year. Most people get free or subsidised housing and all manner of tax breaks for working out in the scrub in a dangerous industry.


    ^ The township of Newman in Western Australia


    ^ The desert country out around Meekathata


    ^ We eventually made our way to Meekathata. This is where we camped for the night - .

    Roast Kangaroo at Meekathata Western Australia - 1

    He knows I don’t mind a bit of dog meat from time to time ... he could have asked me himself.

    Roast Kangaroo at Meekathata in Western Australia

    Unfortunately no dingo this trip … dingo isn’t that good to eat as they don’t carry a lot of fat, plus preparing them for the camp oven is a pain in the arse. We mostly ate Kangaroo as they are easier to shoot and butcher, and the meat is good for a few days if kept cool. I’ve left the “action” shots out so the vegan types don’t get too upset .

    The photos below outline the procedure we followed to make a lovely roast kangaroo leg dinner at Meekathata in Western Australia.


    ^ Step 1 - find a good place to dig a whole for your camp oven. Money ant holes are a good spot as the ground is a bit soft and there is a fair chance you’ll find a bit of money in them as well.


    ^ Sure enough whilst digging the hole we found a bit of money … $6.65 to be precise .


    ^ Step 2 – once you’ve dug all the dirt get a bit of a fire happening to make some hot coals for cooking


    ^ Step 3 – bung a meaty section of kangaroo leg in your camp oven, put it in the hole half filled with hot coals, then cover the camp oven lid with more hot coals … leave the meat cooking like this for as long as it takes you to drink 6 small bottles of beer.


    ^ Step 4 – take the camp oven out of the hole, take the lid off, and fill with medium sized pieces of potato and pumpkin, whole brown onions, and half a dozen large cloves of garlic.


    ^ No need to be too careful, just bung them in like this, I usually add about half a bottle of beer to the oven at this stage


    ^ Step 5 – Put the lid back on


    ^ Step 6 – Put the oven pack in the hole


    ^ Step 7 – Put the old hot coals on top and leave for as long as it takes to drink about 2 beers

    Roast Kangaroo at Meekathata Western Australia - 2


    ^ Step 8 – by the time you’ve had about 8 bottles of beer everything should be about 75% cooked, but to make the kangaroo skin and veggies nice and crispy it’s a good idea at this time to rekindle the fire to get some ultra hot coals happening .


    ^ Step 9 – in order to add the ultra hot coals you got to dig the old ones out of the hole first. Get as much as you can out and take the ones off the lid too


    ^ Step 10 – add ultra hot coals to the hole and on top of the camp oven and leave like this for as long as it takes to drink 3 small beers


    ^ Step 11 – take the camp oven out of the hole and take the lid off


    ^ Step 12 – stick a knife into everything to check that its cooked. If the veggies feel a bit hard, bung the lid back on and have another beer .


    ^ Step 13 – take the veggies and then the meat out of the oven


    ^ Step 14 – slice up the kangaroo meat and eat with the veggies ... wash it all down with a few more beers

    Step 15 - pass out. It is a good idea to do this in your tent.

    I guess so or similar anally retentive stuff. Bloody big horses hoof he is.

    Camping Equipment - Trailer

    I've been getting a few requests for information regarding the trailer we were towing around. These things are friggin awesome … I’ve annotated the picture below to give you some idea of how versatile they. Main thing is the independent suspension, and universal joint swivel like thingo used to connect it to the truck. If the truck makes it, this thing will too. Shits all over a caravan or any trailer I’ve ever seen used. They are made by a company called Trak ... their website is here - Trak Shak > Trailer Campers <. The main thing the pic doesn’t show is the queen sized bed inside the bloody thing.


    ^ The trailer used on the trip


    ^ A pic of the trailer with the tent set up


    ^ Close up of the tent on the back of the trailer

    Expect to pay a minimum of AU$40,000 for one though ... at about 1.15 million Thai baht you could buy a decent house up country with the same money .

    I take it "Money Ants" are ant holes that people put money into to annoy the ants?

    Your roast roo reminds me everything is done to beers in the outback. Drive to next town 3 stubbie drive,and the roadside is littered with empty stubbies appears every one finishes their beer within 2KLM of each other.
