    As intrastate travel is now allowed within South Australia, we have already done one trip (to the Flinders Ranges) and are now ready to again go to another nice SA national park campground. Well, we hope its nice, as we have never been there before... The trouble is, we have to book and pay before going, and there is no phone reception up there. The Gawler ranges are in the Northern area of the Eyre Peninsula, near Wudinna. First we are going to the little town of Laura, where the Golden North ice cream is made (no that is NOT why we are going there). We want to see a few things around there, and although a caravan park is usually anathema to me, apparently this one is lovely. If anyone else is meandering around out that way, and see us, yell out. We are the greeny coloured van and golden LC. This is us on a previous trip (on the Strzelecki Track).

    A little check now is much better than a big cheque later!

    Thanks for this advice Tolley. (You all understand this further advice comes from Val...I am a technical twit). Val says he does a full lube and check of all the nuts and bolts in the suspension and adjusts the brakes. Then about every 10,000 kms he does a lube job (greasing things) and again checks tightness in all the bolts. He does regular checks of hoses and connections under and around the van. It is valuable to discuss these issues, especially for newer members and van owners who may not realise what is needed or how often.

    HiPhil and Katirna , we installed: remap and torque converter and are very happy with both . The remap gives us a little more power and the torque converter makes towing our heavy Kedron Top Ender a breeze . Sure it was easy before in 2016 200 series but it now holds it in gear for longer periods plus a substantial fuel saving .Its now a much smoother ride . We also have the Lovells GVM and tow kit installed. Sure it’s all costly, but in our case the land cruiser is our about town vehicle as well and suits us very well .

    Good morning Kedronners! I am sure many of you will be like us, and so keen to get out camping again. South Australia has opened up camping, and so that's what we will be doing. We are going camping in the Southern Flinders for a week and then further South at Mambray Creek in Mt Remarkable National Park for a further five days.. These two places are among our favourite camping spots (yes, yes I know, I have numerous favourite spots...). We leave tomorrow morning and plan to be at Aroona Campground tomorrow night for four nights. Then we will move down to Mambray Creek. I look forward to waking up to the sight of the ABC Ranges in the background and the sound of the wind in the trees! Here is a photo of a previous trip to Aroona. Will we see any other South Aussies out there?

    We had a lovely time up at Aroona. The weather was perfect there (as it usually is at this time of year) and although cool at night we have the diesel heater! Aroona Campground is one of the best in the Flinders. It has water taps at many of the sites and good rainwater tanks if the weather gods have been kind. Maurveen, get in touch before your trip up there and I can share further information if needed.

    Hi Katrina, 'My two bobs worth'..... You have a very capable tow vehicle vehicle there & with a Kedron hooked up to it you will be travelling first class & be the envy of many. The first three items on your list are very worthwhile & really will enhance your overall experience of your Toyota ownership. Re, the fitting of the extra fuel filter there are many 'arguments' about fitting the auxiliary filter before or after the 'factory' filter.....seriously consider having it fitted before the 'factory' filter. Your vehicle has a price tag of about 100k and probably not much older than twelve months if that, I (personally) would have serious reservations doing significant engine/transmission upgrades while you still are in the early part of your Toyota warranty, doing a remap, intercooler & torque converter 'upgrades', you could have serious disappointments from Toyota denying (possible, although highly unlikely) claims on engine, transmission & driveline. Hoping we meet up one day at a gathering or somewhere down the road. Travel safe Tony H

    Hi Chris Yes, I am obsessive about looking after our ATV for two. This is our second KEDRON, having done over 250,000 km since 2003. Before we head off on a major trip through a remote area (once a year), we have the suspension serviced. My background of 38 years as an aircraft engineer in the aviation industry, is that ‘near enough is not good enough’. Factory standard or better is what I want to achieve, and I’m prepared to pay for it. In the long term, I believe that preventative maintenance is cheaper in the long run. Imagine the cost of having a serious suspension problem in the middle of nowhere. There is no simple answer to this question. It’s really up to what each KEDRON owner wants. We are all individuals and our needs differ in what we want to achieve. No more comments from me on this subject. It’s a never ending conundrum. Cheers from Pete.
