    Kooljaman Closure, Cape Leveque

    My mistake. Your right, there were 2 porta loos there in June and an additional charge per vehicle was added at the Jardine ferry. Think it was 10 bucks or so, given the amount of people up there when we were there they could probably do it pretty easy without the funding

    Kooljaman Closure, Cape Leveque

    Was there last year and agree that generated funds appear to have been syphoned off and not well spent in the required areas.. Word locally was that the locals wanted a sealed road and had no intention of keeping it opened after the road was completed. Hoping that this isn't the case and perhaps...

    Lockdown Protests

    Interesting to see how others see the things here in WA. It isnt perfect by any stretch but its a lot better than what the rest in OZ have to offer. Credit where credit is due to McGowan in keeping WA operating at around 75% capacity. He is no saint and his govt isnt doing a whole lot of...

    GVM upgrade

    Hey Chambo, I had a OME 2" lift fitted to my 200 series early on and was informed by ARB that it could be engineered so had it done. Picked up a few hundred kgs from stock up to 3680kg GVM I think from memory. Easy process, fitted mod plate and took report to WA licensing and they changed the...

    Landcruiser 300 Series

    I cannot wait to see what arrives on the dock with the 300 and will give it the benefit of the doubt upon driving one. That said I may wait till they have ironed out any issues before I buy one. Cousin recently bought a Chevy to tow his toys are didn't get much change from 170K though did save...

    Anyone into Car Camping?

    We camped out of my 200 series on a recent WA to Cape York trip and we enjoyed it the experience though both of us agreed that its ok for a couple of weeks but a camper or caravan is a better longer term option. Packing/unpacking stuff at the start/end of each day was our issue as it was as an...

    HEMA HX2

    I have the HN7 and the lack of an alternate way to connect to a PC is frigging joke. Windows Mobile Device Centre has been on the outer for years and is no longer supported so I cannot connect to my PC anymore. Is good for major tracks but thinking that others do it way better, have GPS Tracks...

    Interesting Utube vids - just for entertainment, of course!

    Yes Grippy that sounds about right. Any labour very hard to almost impossible to find in our local area here in WA also. This is affecting all industries and we have about 140,000 unemployed in WA yet are bringing in foreign labour to pick fruit and veges. I have been in business almost 30...

    What Did You Do To Your 4X4 This Week? Include photos, if possible!

    I dont mind the LR to be honest and there are some good ideas in the vid. That said I would love to get a hour or 2 in the Dodge Charger/Challenger (at least it looks like either one!) parked in his driveway :cool:;)
