    A trip up through the Mid West.

    What the hell have I done, it seems every trip now I have to deal with some drama.

    part I below, but the woes continue later on too

    Another good one.

    Murchison to Mt Augustus, that brings back memories of one of our trips - you know how it goes with the sun going down & you can't get off the road, the River is over on the left (Dry) with the Wife & I getting edgy & then I saw it! - An empty Beer can on the end of a dry branch on the side of the road, GREAT!
    Stopped the vehicle & doubled back to find wheel tracks through the grass which we followed to one of the best camp spots of the whole trip.:cool::)

    Were there any flowers around Mt Augustus this year? The first time I did a trip there there were heaps but the next trip nothing.
    It needs a good winter rain in autumn, winter.

    It was an awesome year for flowers, however we were too late. Coalseam was blanketed with dead stuff. It would have been damn impressive a month or so ago.

    Geez, ol mates ravioli must have been tough to slip with the knife hacking a steak from his digit. Iol
    Simple things going wrong, can really change the outcome of a trip. Glad it
    wasn't to too serious.
    Great video and trip, looking forward to
    the next.

    I cant remember what he was cutting at the time, maybe the vac seal bag? but boy, didn't it bleed. You are right, when crap goes down, plans change. but a bit of ingenuity goes a long way to keep on track. Lucky, I've only had one show stopper on a trip. Even this one was patched up:

    But a fuel pump failure a few years later was lights out :(

    The voice at 4.30 in the morning sounded like you'd partaken in a few of those bitter bush chooks the night before.

    Keep them coming I am enjoying this particularly the bit where it isn't me! (This time - we all have our moments including wheel problems).;)
    Why is it that when it "Rains" it pours, $hit happens.
