I have just returned from a trip to the Simpson desert, which is in SA, NT & QLD, but mostly in SA. Basically, the centre of Australia. We had to take everything with us and take all rubbish out with us. It was a lot of digging 4X4's out of sand, taking hours to travel 30 Km's. I was the chef on the trip so we ate well, eye fillets, red & white wines, butterflied legs of lamb, cheese before dinner and of course lots of beer. We cooked on the open fire each night and slept under the stars in swags.
It was one of those trips of a life time, and I did it with 4 of my best mates from primary school. I can only hope that my son, when he is at my age, has great mates that he has known from primary school, because we had a ball. We must have been some of the most isolated people on the planet when in the middle of the desert. I have travelled through the Sahara desert when i was younger and of course its the same feeling.
Anyway, here are a few photos from the trip, of course I have hundreds more and endless amounts of video, But I thought I would send out this blog while I have an hour free. I didn't take all my fancy gear with me, as sand is not the friend of cameras, so I just took my trusty little Sony RX100, lots of SD cards and a tripod.
I hope you enjoy them. Please leave a comment, pass on the link, and share with who ever you think would like to see them. As I get round to processing the video and other images I will put them up.
