I would consider trhat you did quite well, as there have been many have travelled from Wiluna to Kunawaritji then turned back. The wife and I have also helped quite a few that have been in vehicle distress and foolishly tried to push on.
My wife is desert born and bred, she walked that area until she was in her teens with her parents as nomads, so she is extremelly familiar with that area, we will always go and help anyopne we hear about that may need help.
We have done the entire CSR in various sorts of weather, but we also know all the side tracks and because of her family connections (and the fact that I have been through Abopriginal law), we can take tracks that are now closed, but will open again in the not too distant future.
Good on you for having a look at a wonderful bit of country and recording your trip for others to learn from. Safe travels in the future.

It was an interesting trip that one. Lack of preparation is a trap for the unwary in this country, particularly when heading into the wilds. Thankfully it was only the one vehicle that let us down and there was ample support amongst the rest of us to assist. We had some very competent people along. As my later blogs show, a couple of us were successful in reaching a few of our goals such as Joanna Spring a bit over ten days later but followed a different route in from above the Wapet. We also backed it up this year in reaching Dragon Tree Soak which was an incredible journey. It’s unforgiving but I love the country.
Just reworked the original video which at 10 minutes was a bit long. Didn’t have any music either so I’ve cut it to blazes and added a soundtrack. Glad you enjoyed it.
