HELLO and Bonjour,
I am interested in crossing the Simpson desert in May with some other vehicles.
Preferable dates 1st to 10th May.
It is a west to east travel that I forecast.
Thank you in advance for a reply.

Hi Soyer

Long handled shovel, MaxTrax, around 14psi tyre pressure and extra water.

Daytime temperatures will still be hot out there in the high 30's to low 40's with mild nights.

Some sections may still have blown over tips at the top of some dunes and some tracks will still not be fully defined.

Like I said above, type pressure will be very important with the still very soft sand, so do the responsible thing and keep your pressure low.


Cheers

Stephen,

I think maybe the OP is actually enquiring if there are "some other vehicles" crossing at that time that he may tag along with.
Nevertheless, your advice would be useful to him.
Cheers
Allan

Have a look at my latest newsletter, it may be of interest to you for equipment required. I have done the Simpson 3 times and it is a wonderful trip. Please leave it as you find it and take all your rubbish out with you. Enjoy.
