    Regional Areas Benefiting

    We just got back from 12 days in the Southern Flinders. Sure was awesome! Pleasantly surprised, I noticed a considerably more than usual amount of local tourist traffic. Speaking to a few travellers they said "now that we can not travel overseas, time to travel locally." Speaking to some shop...

    Good Tracks - Wilmington, SA?

    Hey everyone We have about 8 days on hand and a friend of ours has offered us their place in Wilmington to stay whilst they are away. In the past we have always driven past this area on our way to the Flinders, but never really gave any thought to exploring the Wilmington area. So we are...

    I am loving these chats with my good friend Terry. I film the chats as I listen to the most of the stories for the first time. So quite exciting. Here is the second part.

    Let's Do The Right Thing

    We all being outdoor lovers, this is certainly quite a challenging time. I am bored out of my mind sitting at home. For the last 17 years, we've worked from home so when this stay at home thing came about, we said easy done. Then to realise, not being able to socialise, share a drink at the pub...

    Traveling under the current situation

    So a lot of our work is getting rescheduled. Not so great when being self-employed. But it is what it is. So we are thinking of going bush. Question is, is this part of "self-isolation" / "social distancing"? Or should we rather stay put at home? What are your thoughts?

    Replacing Seats - your thoughts?

    So my 80's driver and front passenger seats have seen better days. After 270,000km they are quite tired. Add to that I have a bit of a bad back. So looking to do something about the seats. It is a trade-off between cost vs comfort value. I don't do more than 10,000km of driving each year (wish...

    How Many Spare Wheels Do You carry?

    I've been carrying two spare wheels ever since I started off-roading 20 years or so ago. My type of off-roading is mostly touring. The reason for carrying two spares is, majority of the time it is just me and the Mrs, so having two gave me that peace of mind. Have to admit, up to now, only once...

    Lost my best mate

    It's been a shitty week. Had to say goodbye to my best mate - Diesel today. He was also an awesome travel companion. A few months back he developed a limp on his front right leg. Since he had already had a bit of arthritis thought it was getting a bit worse with age. He was 10. On Monday...

    Your thoughts on Telstra

    I have had the worst experience ever with Telstra and it is not over yet. No internet for the past two weeks (and counting). I run a home business so it is hitting me hard. After several attempts at resolving my issue, they then sent me a "smart modem" which is supposed to switch to 4G when...

    Cruise Control Question

    Hey everyone. This is not much of an offroading question. Rather a general vehicle question. We have a 2008 Nissan Pathfinder which is our daily runner. The cruise control is pretty useless going downhill. Despite locking in the speed the vehicle runs away increasing in speed. Eventually having...

    Some pics from the National Motor Museum's day of celebrating 4 wheel driving. This was one neat 80. Getting ready for the damper competition. My first 4x4 was a Series 1. Bought it at a Govt auction back in Africa. The only 4x4 I (along with a friend) could afford on the pocket money we...
