Hey Guys,
Once it's up have a look at Pooginook on the tracks. If your looking for a country drive in the dirt, great, but if your looking at something a bit more intereting maybe head straight to loveday.

Are the Pooginook tracks no good? bit flat and boring or what? Maybe good for quiet camping on way thru or something maybe? Did you take pics at Pooginook?

Hey Poolman, I posted a pic with the Pooginook track that show typical track going north, the otherside is similar however heading down the west side there is scrub on both sides, and definately more low branches. Ended up snapping the aerial along this section somewhere. Towards the end there are some sandhills but would be more interesting doing it in 2wd with 50lb pressure. Ha Ha
Didn't take a picture at the campground, will think of that next time, but it's shady, not very open but all mallee scrub, just gotta jump the fence to get the firewood. No water or toilets, so would need to bring spade.
The track is onsite now.

Only if you would like an excuse to buy one. ;)
Your only a few minutes away from town and you don't need to let your tyres down very far to do the Morgan tracks. :D

We took ours but never used it. Let the tyres down twice, but your a punt ride away from town at the Conservation Park, and one way into the quarry is on the left after the caravan park as you get off on the other side. Easier and quicker to drive to the servo and use theirs. From what we saw they don't mind and are quite used to it.
Have fun.

As Ekki, said not low enough to need air compressor immediately, I will have mine anyway! I'll let you use it!!!!

Hi Poolman, Put the car back on the road tonight and just went for a quick run up past One Tree Hill to see what was happening with the clutch leak. Seems OK. No oil dripping down the clutch pedal for that short run anyway. So will give it a go on Sunday.

And a couple of hours should knock the rest of the reports over tonight!

So see you all Sunday morning.

Hi guys, met hammered hilux this afternoon & just joined the site.

After spending all afternoon welding brackets and supports for the wheel carrier, which is now finished and mounted solid.:D

Will meet you all at Gawler. It will be good to go and see the quarry heard about it never seen it or wheeled it.
