    Treading Lightly In A Land Rover or 3

    Found this video and this is how it should be done with virtually zero damage to the track or vehicles. This track has a chequered past with roll overs and vehicle breakages. I can only imagine if this was the 4WD Action crew there would be lots of reving, dust and small boulders being spat...

    Available Petrol Octane Levels?

    This is not specific to 4WDs and my Disco is diesel, however, SWMBOs little C2 has to run on 95 or 98 fuel but retailers are ditching 95 in favour of E10 94. Which leaves those with vehicles that run on these Premium fuels (and I'm sure there are many here) no choice but to use the over priced...

    Another one bites the dust

    And another one's gone. Admit it you sang the title and first line above. :p Anyway on a serious note. Yes this track/road has been gated (even though the gate was open) and sign posted. This is not even a "track" it is more a dirt road (Caves Rd) that I have used as a long cut between two...

    What will we do?? zero emissions???

    Found this article tonight hmmmmm.....?? :oops::confused::( Wonder what we will do with such vast distances, lack of infrastructure and general dislike of government heavy handedness. No doubt just follow the US blindly as usual, given that the greens will push for something similar once the US...

    Mobile phone plan and coverage.

    So my contract is up and Optus are closing down Virgin Mobile so it is time to find something else. Thus far from my research, reading reviews and talking to prospective providers, I have come to the conclusion that ALL mobile phone providers are crap. Do I just take a chance with ...

    Just had a thought that maybe a calender could be a useful addition to the site. I know the Mods work tirelessly for no financial gain but I would envisage posted trips could be inserted to the calender and linked back to the original post for information. Other items could be posted into the...

    Is HF 27Mhz CB a viable alternative to UHF?

    I did a bit of search and found plenty of mention about 27Mhz and UHF but couldn't glean enough information to satisfy my questions. A little back ground. I last operated 27Mhz CB's between about 1976 and 1983. Then for reasons I won't go into (and am a little angry about...still) left the 4wd...

    Penalty Notices Queensland NPRS.

    I was having a look through the QPWS booking site at some places that I am thinking of camping (when the weather warms a little bit more) and from my google searching stumbled on a link to data sets for Penalty Infringement Notices. So me being a nosey bugger poked around a bit and here is some...

    Bush Bashing!?!

    I was reading another thread and someone was asked what they want to do with the vehicle they were wanting to purchase. This is where the term "Bush Bashing" came up. To me these two words conjure up images of 37" tyres and ploughing through mud holes with the surrounding terrain at window sill...

There is talk of a 75th but there will definitely be an 80th. The first night out was in Girraween National Park (Qld) at...
