French Line, Simpson Desert

Susanne and Michi traversed the Simpson Desert in October 2008 (west to east) in their Landrover Defender and they planted the seed for our dream: we also wanted to experience this outback adventure - except that for us the direction will be from east to west, one of the most direct lines from Brisbane to Alice Springs towards WA. With all pieces of advice, having read many historic and current reports on conditions, trouble spots and other difficulties we had made our Landrover fit for the desert crossing and arrived in Birdsville.
