Did you change your mind about the terrain?
the alternative (alice springs) was going to be significantly more expensive and difficult.
I've been telling myself it's okay to miss Easter, relax, lot's of other people aren't going either, and now you've decided to go and I'm dealing with it all over again! :D
to be fair though, I reckon you'd have even less chance of getting around 4 races than I would.
I've actually found it really liberating not to need to be training for Easter this year. We are going to Darwin (if the power's back on by then).
