Hi Russell,

Yes, the track itself has been done.  The southern half, Marree to the
Coober Pedy turnoff had been done a little while ago; I finished the
northern half in June.  It's the road to the west of Lake Eyre:


There are plenty other roads nearby though; I planned to do the Painted
Desert road, for exmaple, but ran out of time.

The track to the east of Lake Eyre is the Birdsville Track, then east again
is the Strzelecki Track.

There's no NextG access (though when I did the Strzelecki Track I was
surprised to find that NextG is now available at Moomba).

Happy travelling.
