  1. 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.
  2. WHERE ARE YOU NOW?

    Hi Road Runner, I am sure you will love the place. Please say hi to Tammy at Middle Lagoon for me. I did forget to mention that while in either Broome or Derby, you must do the Horizontal Waterfall tour. At first you may think it is expensive, but I can assure you that it is worth every dollar and more. It is truly a "Bucket List" thing to do. It is a bit cheaper to do out of Derby but it is a shorter tour too. Seaplane adventures are normally the best guys to do the tour................ very professional, but i am sure there are others just as good. Safe Travels
  3. Anne Beadell Highway

    Hi Taka, I have travelled from Kalgoorlie along the old rail line and then up the Connie Sue Hwy to Neale Junction and then along the Anne Beadell Highway into the Victorian Desert into the Tjuntjuntjura Community a number of times for work and it was always in a reasonable condition .....except for rain of coarse. But as you would know, conditions change from day to day. That's why I gave up asking people and just did it and deal with the issues if they happen.
  4. Plenty and Donohue Highways

    Hi Chris, While I am not sure of its current condition, I can tell you that it has black top from Alice all the way to Atitjere (Harts Range) and they are continually upgrading it on the NT side ........Qld side is usually crap .......as normal. I travelled it every 4 weeks for work and except for wet whether, it was always kept in good condition ........NT side that is
  5. WHERE ARE YOU NOW?

    Hello Ted & Hermy, The road to Cape Leveque is never really good, but it changes every day. There is only 86 kms of sand/dirt from Broome to Beagle Bay and then it is beautiful black top for the rest of the way. If you let you tyre pressures down to about 22-25 on the van and take your time, you won't have an issue as it is only firm sand ..... not rocky dirt. You cant take your van to Cape Leveque as they only allow camper trailers ........It is over rated anyway. The place to stay is Middle Lagoon. You can take your van no problems. The owner is Tammy (a truly lovely aboriginal lady and used to work for me) and the manager is Herbie. You will not regret going there....... it is spectacular. Ask her boys to take you crabbing and then ask Tammy to make Chilli Crab......................it is to die for. When you do go to Cape Leveque, make sure to pencil in lunch at Cygnet Bay pearl farm. It is first class food (try the pearler's samplers plate and a bucket of prawns). They also do a fantastic "Giant Tide" boat tour there. Try and do the "Out going" tide if you can as it is more spectacular then the "incoming" tide............. it is still amazing ....just not as much. Cape Leveque has always been "hit or miss" when it comes to food but they do do a great pizza and it is a beautiful place to watch the sun set as is Middle lagoon. If you do stay at Middle Lagoon, you must also go just down the road to Whale Song for a lunch. It to is a beautiful location and has fantastic food. There is also a whale research centre next door and they are always happy to see visitors as not many people know of it. Make sure you have a good set of binoculars as if the season is right, you can whale watch from the shore at Middle Lagoon and Whale Song. Plus, don't forget to visit the church at Beagle Bay and say hi to Father Hillary. There is also a fish hatchery at Bardie (One Arm Point) worth a visit and call in to Lombadina Community and drive onto the beach. It is the most beautiful beach you will see in the area. If you need any other info, just contact me as I lived at Beagle Bay for 18 months and managed the store there. I have dragged my van up and down that road about 20 times I recon and never had an issue P.S. you will need minimum 100lb fishing line if you want to go fishing. Any fish under 18 inches you use for live bait Cheers Steve
  6. New Kedron owners

    Hi John & Lynne, Welcome to KOG. I am sure you will love being on the road full-time. We have just finished 6 years of being permanently on the road and loved every second of it. once our house is built we will most likely go again. Travel safe and enjoy the ride
  7. Get 'F'

    Tony, Tony, Tony............................ you have far too much free time and by the looks of it, you spend it drinking or "medicating". How could you not have got 6??????? I am beginning to understand why you moved to that aged care facility
  8. Silverado Transmission

    Hello Colin, Have you consulted with Victorian American Autos ( as I believe they are the guys who converted it, from our previous conversation) as I have always found that they are extremely helpful and can source parts quickly and very competitively. They also carry a hell of a lot of stock (spares) as they have been in the business over 30 years. I have a some friends who have purchased vehicles from them and are of the same opinion Steve
  9. grease

    Hi Mickanann, Personally I use a grease that contains Molybdenum Disulfide (Moly) (Black) , but any good quality Lithium Complex base (EP2) wheel bearing grease is suitable. Just make sure it is a reputable brand as in the big picture, grease is very cheap preventive maintenance Cheers Steve
  10. Fifty Sheds of Grey

    FIFTY SHEDS OF GREY The novel “Fifty Shades Of Grey” has seduced women – and baffled blokes. Now, Fifty Sheds Of Grey, offers a treat for the men. The book has author Colin Grey recounting his love encounters at the bottom of the garden. Here are some extracts... Fifty Sheds Of Grey We tried various positions – round the back, on the side, up against a wall... but in the end we came to the conclusion the bottom of the garden was the only place for a good shed. She stood before me, trembling in my shed. “I’m yours for the night,” she gasped, “You can do whatever you want with me.” So I took her to Bunning’s. She knelt before me on the shed floor and tugged gently at first, then harder until finally it came. I moaned with pleasure. Now for the other boot. Ever since she read THAT book, I’ve had to buy all kinds of ropes, chains and shackles. She still manages to get into the shed, though. “Put on this rubber suit and mask,” I instructed, calmly. “Mmmm, kinky!” she purred. “Yes,” I said, “You can’t be too careful with all that asbestos in the shed roof.” “I’m a very naughty girl,” she said, biting her lip. “I need to be punished.” So I invited my mum to stay for the weekend. “Harder!” she cried, gripping the workbench tightly. “Harder!” “Okay,” I said. “What’s the gross national product of Nicaragua?” I lay back exhausted, gazing happily out of the shed window. Despite my concerns about my inexperience, my rhubarb had come up a treat. “Are you sure you can take the pain?” she demanded, brandishing stilettos. “I think so,” I gulped. “Here we go, then,” she said, and showed me the receipt. “Hurt me!” she begged, raising her skirt as she bent over my workbench. “Very well,” I replied. “You’ve got fat ankles and no dress sense.” “Are you sure you want this?” I asked. “When I’m done, you won’t be able to sit down for weeks.” She nodded. “Okay,” I said, putting the three-piece suite on eBay. “Punish me!” she cried. “Make me suffer like only a real man can!” “Very well,” I replied, leaving the toilet seat up.
  11. GVM and tow upgrades

    So it is kind of like having a hamburger and a diet coke................. you know it is not really right,...........but you feel better for doing it .....................LOL At least the effort is more than most do.
  12. GVM and tow upgrades

    Just a couple of thoughts I have when getting a 4 Ton upgrade. Putting a chip in it and changing suspension is all well and good But do they put bigger brakes on it? Most vehicles will pull a big van................. pulling it up is very different and in my opinion, far more important. Also how do they stop the "Tail wagging the Dog"? Changing suspension wont change theses issues
  13. Qld roads dept

    Did anyone happen to see the segment on a current affairs on channel 9 on Friday night regarding the Qld roads and traffic authority pulling over caravaners and checking weights and tow capacities....................... very interesting and rather amusing at times as some people are sooo bloody stupid or just not interested in doing the right thing. In one of the shots there was a Kedron TE3 or 5. There were many unhappy campers even though they only issued warnings on this occasion, but did go on to say that from here on in, fines will be issued It looks like the fun is about to start ...... giddy up
