I had thought the ban on climbing had been in place for years.
But to be honest it’s just another DO NOT CLIMB sign. These have been preventing me from climbing on cool stuff since I was a child.
It’s not the end of the world.
In all fairness you don’t have a Jimny to do the Canning. I used to have one because it was easy on fuel, good for city driving and as capable as I needed it to be off road. For that it was great.
I do rather like the idea from the video of about having a trailer. It would be great to see if...
We ended just doing tracks around the area. Even in the dry Anderson's mill track is fun. I can't wait to go back in winter. Then we started down diggers track but one of the vehicles lost clutch function at the bottom of a stinky boghole.
It was a good day. Everyone needed recovery at some...
All great feedback. I'm not sure what a "shitter" specifically is in this context, but I think I get the point.

I have been daydreaming about doing a run from Melbourne to Perth and back one day. The current plan is to do East to west inland visiting Woomera & Maralinga along the way then take the coast on the way back.
Has anyone got any tips or suggestions of where to visit along the way?
Crossed it from east to west years ago. Maybe even 10 or 15 years ago.
I remember maps were more helpful than I was expecting (couldn't afford gps then).
Lots of native bees.
Temperature was fine.
*Edit* Oh yeah. And not a great place if you are precious about the vehicle paint getting scratched.
Once I had the more detailed maps downloaded to the unit I was actually fairly impressed. They seem on par with any hard copy maps I have had in the past.
The explorer mode is a great aid to navigation. It will make crossing featureless scrub deserts much easier than it has been with map and...
