Here is a Google map of my proposed trip route during late May and early June 2011 on Arcoona and Andamooka stations in outback South Australia.

I'm expecting to be out on the bike for about 12 days, so long as I don't run out of tucker or find the rough living too much.

I'll be carrying enough fuel for about 640 kilometres and estimate a distance to travel of around 500 kilometres.

My route takes me on Arcoona and Andamooka stations, from east of Woomera to near Andamooka opal mines and town and out to Lake Torrens in the east. Roxby Downs is not a long way to the north west of my proposed travel.

You'll see that I plan to camp for several days by Lake Torrens at Sketching Pile. From the Google satellite images, this appears to be about the deepest part of Lake Torrens and I hope to get some good salt images with salt encrustation on the drift wood, twigs and rocks. Maybe there'll also be large salt crystals on the lake bed, below shallow water.
