    Simmo Geo Centre May 3rd - 10th 2015 (epic . . . tiring, but epic)

    Do they have eftpos etc now? I really was a bit put off carrying so much cash. We exited to Port Headland at Kunawarritji as I was crook and would like to do full track one day. Ah well. It was a good drive. Took a small group but despite my request to get their cars checked by a good...

    Simmo Geo Centre May 3rd - 10th 2015 (epic . . . tiring, but epic)

    Hey!! Mt Dare price is nothing to that on the Canning. We paid $3.80 at half way at Kunawarritji Community. Luckily the track was in excellent nick and we used about 18Lt per 100k. We used more on the Simpson at 20 lt per 100k. Can't help sharing a few pics. Just us and grand daughter -...

    Automotive Solutions Group shares fall 62% after profit downgrade.

    Agree 100% about the lip service. You are so right mate. For us. We try as much as we can to buy Australian. If you have a good memory then you will recall that I have said so on many occasions. I once bought a battery at Aldi and never been back. We but A2 milk because we know it come...

    Automotive Solutions Group shares fall 62% after profit downgrade.

    Bigggsy. A good point mate. It's all those millions of people, and heaps on this forum as well, who would not support the local products and companies, but were more interested in the price as the most important factor when buying anything. Like all those who claimed that it was better to buy...

    problem

    If it has a turbo then it could have come adrift. It sounds like our car did after a mechanic who will remain nameless left it loose after working on the car. Phil

    What do people use drag chains for?

    Also used to move trees and logs off tracks. Being one of the "early" visitors to the high country means we do a bit of cleaning up. Also used to move the sons car around the back yard and do the odd bit of gardening like pulling bushes out etc. Never need it for a recovery. But it has been...

    anyone got one of these, says they have been featured here on 4x4 earth

    Personally I wouldn't touch any thing "cheap". One son did and when ever he had Ozi running the radio turned off. No multi tasking. Just be careful. Maybe pay a bit more. We paid heaps for our VMS box in 2010 and don't regret it one bit. One son got the same and the other bought a Rangie...

    Where to get a USA map

    Hi Les. Please believe me mate. I understand where you are coming from. But we do not have a need to upgrade. So why waste the money. Thanks for trying but many have tried and many have failed. We are not scared of technology but like our three only cars in 50 years and purchased new, we...

    Where to get a USA map

    Thanks BB. Just needed a file for Ozi the laptop. Pretty well given up by now. Don't need any navigation mate. That's all covered by the tour guides etc. And that's what we are paying heaps for. All accommodation, meals, entertainment and side excursions (city/scenic tours, steam train and...

    Im sick of buying cheap chinese crap (KUTSNAKE Review)

    That's for sure Les. It is rare for a thread not to mention the common requests for the "cheaper" or "lower cost" products. I really don't blame people, as it's not a cheap hobby. Even a pre-trip inspection is a few hundred dollars and what about fuel in remote communities. We paid $3.80 a...

    How to right a rolled Jeep.

    You hit the nail on the head there mate. JEEP = Just Enough Engine Parts. And I believe that was how they were named for WW2. If they break then just leave them. Phil

    How to right a rolled Jeep.

    I wonder what the broken winch rope did to that blokes "family jewels". Oh the pain of ignorance. After watching recoveries by people who won't listen nor take any advice or assistance, I am not surprised in the slightest. I just move back. Well back. Phil
