time to hit the road!

hi all,

some of you know that we have been planning a decent trip for a fair while now ... well the time has just about come to hit the road!

expect to depart Monday or Tuesday next week....

I'll through up the odd post here and there (hopefully with me holding a 1.2m pig of a barra) just to stay in touch.

for those who may be interested we will be updating our blog as we go.

http://ouroutbackadventure.wordpress.com/

expect it to be updated infrequently with crap photos and bad spelling ... but should be worth a laugh!

see you in 12 weeks!

Safe travels, watch your temperatures and I hope you only catch a 1.1m barra.

I'll be keeping an eye on your blog. I plan on doing a similar trip with my long service next year for the runoff. I'll be in a GU patrol too, they are a trusty chariot.
Good luck and may you land many meterys

Some great pics on the blog Macca, I see your Mrs knows the password to the blog though

If stubbies are $6.50 each, how much is a new tyre for the Patrol

Safe trails, more pics....

Looks good, sucks to shred a tyre so early. Do you drop some air out of your tyres for the gravel?

hopefully a warranty job in Alice, still have the thing strapped to the roof rack. the perth distributor i brought them off has teed up one in my size to be there for me .... only issue will be price. who knows..... i nearly brought a second hand highway terrain in Warburton for $280 ..... then a maori fell gave me direction to his mates mechanics yard, through town (an eye opener that trip i tell ya) a quick scrounge and $50 later i had a "back up" fitted.

add a heap more stuff to the blog tonight as well.

first and last i hope!

i didnt drop them on the first leg. had a heap of differing advice on pressures ranging from 25 to 55 psi. so i stuck with my normal road pressures as it was not soft at all really. that failed. so i dropped them back - i made sure they were 40 hot (another bonus of the 4.8 is i need to stop every 2 hours to tip in another jerry so plenty of chances to check the pressures ) got though ok after that.

funnily enough the fellas who told me 55 psi blew a tyre and the ones who told me 25 also blew a tyre. so thats a cooper a bfg and a michilen all at differnet pressures all blowing on the same trip .... luck of the draw i think..... who knows
