Comment on LETTER: That great Larapinta Trail! by David Chewings.

I am thrilled that this lucky and little group of seven students have availed themselves to this new volunteering experience. I hope you share your exhilaration with your many friends and contacts in good old South Australia. This unique trail, which includes some of the Chewings Range, was established with the “willing” heavy lifters of the Alice Springs penitentiary and also depends upon goodwill by those fine individuals like yourselves.
A great article and I trust you are all inspired to return one fine day.
Regards from THE lone dingo.

Ps: Even the almighty Tony Abbott would be green with envy in terms of what you have witnessed in our wilderness!

This is a very grave issue for Central Australia. The situation at Mataranka involving Tina McFarlane and her family shows just how quickly things can turn. I would advise all Alice Springs people to watch this space and take note of those who know about water for example, Rod Cramer.
