I know it's a few months off yet but if we were to get flights that arrived in Adelaide Friday (Apr 22) early afternoon and left Monday (Apr 25) late evening, would we get to all events? One airline has a sale at the moment so just trying to get in while it's cheap!

Yep, the Monday morning event is fairly low key (not NOL) and would be over by midday; it's about 4.5hrs back to Adelaide from there. Sat middle distance NOL will be afternoon (starts after 1pm), and that's the furthest north, on the Sacred Canyon Rd.

Ta, just need to convince TT to buy tickets now and for the previous weekend's MTBO trials... :-O

Don't think I'm going to be anywhere near ready for the ultralong with the focus solely on the bike in the lead-up but I don't want to miss this.

Gees I hope my (prospective) new employer is understanding of my leave requirements.

Ha, we're not going to the Christmas 5 days this year because of the 5hr drive but 4.5hrs to somewhere in SA is totally okay!!!

If you do fly in Friday afternoon I suggest going as far as the Cradock Hotel that night.

What do you mean convincing me to buy tickets now? It's South Australia! Exciting!!

If there's any chance you can stay even one extra day, there's sooo much more of the Flinders Ranges that you could see!

When is this? Worth driving over?

Already booked flights, sorry! Plus I have no idea on my employment situation around that time so best to allow for minimal leave at the moment (two Fridays in a row is already going to be bad enough).
