Western Adventures is making some exceptional changes.
All of the loose ends have been taken care of and I am finally retired. Western Adventures web site is up for sale. The name or the whole business can be bought with all of the contacts, background information and training to own your own. If you are interested email me with a phone number and we can talk business. Only serious inquiries will be considered. Email with "inquire on Western Adventures" in the subject line.
My plans to travel to Australia are still in the works for a “drive about” (this is a term I use for the months I plan on driving around Australia). Similar to the American Southwest “Jackalope”, I plan on searching for the Australian “Dingeroo” (the mix of a dingo and kangaroo)!
I am starting a Blog and you will be able to follow the process of planning and the travels. Located at Blogger.com "Expedition Ding-eroo".

The 4x4 trip adventures are going “Free*" -
The times are tough for everyone. Because if the tough times I have decided to make changes to the guide service part of the business. It is now just the “Explorers Club”!
Our 4X4 adventures are now “FREE*” to go on. We do ask that you make a reservation to go on the adventures. We need to limit the number to a comfortable size for a enjoyable experience for everyone. That requires a commitment! Experience has taught me that if there is no consequence for not following through with your commitment some people will not follow through. This may remove a person who wanted to attend and got squeezed out as a group fills up. A person not showing up, also holds up the group as we wait for them and they do not show up. For that reason I require a deposit of $100.oo. You will get that back when you attend the adventure. The deposit will be kept if you do not show, “No excuses”! You are free to tip or donate to the cost of the Web-site expenses. In a effort to keep the cost down, I will stop using the credit cards for the “Free Adventures” as this added to the overhead. When I do not charge fo adventures the justification to give money to a credit card company dose not make financial sense.
Contact the office prior to sending any deposit, just to make sure there are openings for the paticular adventure.
* - “FREE* No Guide Service Fees! You will have to pay all of your own expenses such as; food, fuel, repairs, land use fees, lodging and camping fees. Any and all expenses outside of Guide Services.
