sad news .
A man who died after his car became bogged near a remote Central Australian campground has been remembered by those who knew him as a positive man with a love of life.
It's very sandy on the crossings in there. I really hope it wasn't as simple as letting the tyres down.
So sad! Unfortunately people getting stranded, or lost, and dying in Central Australia occurs too often i.m.o.Such a sad story. I won’t judge his actions. RIP fella.

We make our own decisions based on what knowledge we have and what risks we are willing to take. But cases like this lead me to wonder whether more needs to be done (or can be done) by way of induction for anyone moving to or holidaying there?
Agree 100% but there needs to be better education to make evreyone who hasn't been 4wding for years aware of the extreme conditions and dangers involved in traveling into these areasAs sad and tragic as this is I don’t agree with nannyising it. If you go to these harsh outback areas you need to take responsibility yourself and be aware and be prepared accordingly
I remember speaking with one of the local shop owners in the vicinity, an older lady in her late 60’s and she made the comment about tourists not respecting the area and it’s conditions thinking they are still in the big smoke
