When the Ulysses AGM was scheduled for Alice Springs in 2014, my brother Alan and I thought it was an opportunity to complete a section of our 2010 round Australia ride.  Then we had planned to do the Gibb River Road, but when we got to Derby at the end of May 2010, the road was closed due to rain.  So what better than take off from the Alice to Hall Creek on the Tanami Road and travel the
