    Tanami track

    That's another vote for Mary Pools and Lake Ellendale. Also make sure you visit Wolfe Creek Creator and Old Halls Creek. If you require any info on the Kimberley, let me know as we lived in the region for 18 months.................. we also lived in the Alice region for over 2 years, so we can probably help you out there too. Enjoy your trip

    If they are the grey plastic (Kedron) tanks, they will be baffled as that is how they promote them............................... that should sort your baffle-ing problem

    Tyres for Chev Silverado

    Hi Tony, Mine are the STZ which has now been replaced by the ATZ. they are a 50/50 pattern. I have just put Toyo Open Country AT on the Patrol and I an very happy with them so far. But I have only done 7,000kms on them. They are a very quiet tyre also (but compared to the Cooper ST Maxx.......... A D9 Dozer would be quiet) and have been fantastic in the wet. Look forward to catching up when your back Safe travels

    Tyres for Chev Silverado

    Hi Leon/Tony, Be careful of the BFG's as the new pattern is no where as good as the old. This information has come from two BF dealers who are customers of mine. Both are getting poor performance and niggling issues with them and both have stopped recommending them. I have Mickys on my GM but they are 18". They have only done about 12,000k but I really do like them so far. Very quiet and have an excellent load rating.

    Tyres for Chev Silverado

    Did they throw in a set of ear muffs? ...........................you will need them as they are just as noisy as a full on MT tyre after about 10,000kms. Plus they are not a good wet weather tyre

    Towing with Toyota Cab Chassis

    Hi Jaap Don't forget you still have to add all the extras to the weight of the C/Chas ...... Air con, B/Bar, Tow bar, radios and all the other crap we all seem to carry and forget about. I tend to agree with Merv........................I don't think there is much difference . Certainly not 350Kg. P.S: Trust me, You don't need to be a millionaire to have have a Chev/GMC or F Truck as I have a GMC and I am so poor that I can't pay attention ................................But I guess it would help. By the time to buy a new cruiser and then spend all the money setting up with beefed up suspension, elec brakes and all the other stuff, you are not far off the price of a good second hand Chev/GMC or F Truck or even a new one as they don't require all the beefed up suspension, elec brakes etc.

    In Tasmania!

    What a rough looking mob........................ Just as well that you are in Tassie...............you will fit in. That big bloke in the front looks like a 6 fingered banjo player if ever I saw one, but at least he seems to have all his teeth.

    Chevrolet Silverado

    Hi Bryan, Just to add a bit of confusion to this matter. ................ sorry When I first purchased my GMC, it did the same thing (Or so it sounds). I rang Victorian American Auto's who did the conversion and they told me it was a common problem with a main fuse (a big square one). They got me to swap one out until I could get to a Holden dealer. However in the meantime they sent me 2 (only required 1) and I replaced it and it has been perfect ever since. This may not be the same issue but it does sound very similar Cheers Steve

    Newbies to caravanning and Kedron

    Hello Jono and Becky, Arrrrrrrrrrrr ................ the memories. We too were newbies to caravanning when we picked up our shiny new TE back in Nov 2010 and oddly enough there was a gathering at Kalbar the next day, which we attended and showed it off with pride. We also learnt a hell of a lot from the more experienced (OLD) people about the van and caravanning in general. Since that proud moment, we have just competed 6 years of full-time travel and working around Oz and had the time of our lives. I don't think there are too many roads and outback locations we haven't been and the faithful (now old)TE has done it all trouble free. You have made a wise choice and we know you will have a great time with it. Good luck with it all and remember ...................... If your not living on the edge..............................your taking up too much room Cheers Steve & Kerry

    Camping Spot

    Hi Guys, Lake Hart is good, but can be busy at certain times of the year. You may also want to have a look at Wiki Camps We also do use the Camps Book, but find Wiki Camps much better as it has user comments and has a lot more detailed info and pics. You can down load the app to your phone or tablet for a very small amount. It was $2.00 7 years ago so it can't be much more now .............maybe??????

    WHERE ARE YOU NOW?

    Hi Road Runner, Glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Middle Lagoon and Cape Leveque. It is a shame you never got to meet Tammy. You are right about Herbie, he is very easy going and is never in a hurry. Did you happen to get to Cygnet Bay and do the Giant Tide tour.
