I seem to remember reading somewhere that trailers weren't allowed on one part of the Canning?

Used to be closed from well 2-5 for trailers when we did it in 2010, but track isn't hard at all , its just an endurance run..

The exploroz Canning trek notes are worth reading , and
they no longer state that well 2-5 is closed to trailers.

I reckon your correct, trailers aren't permitted on up to Well 5 from memory so you need to go in or exit out from Granite Peak or Glen-Ayle

Roger,
Is it just a statement you are making, or are you after some kind of feedback?

I am doing Simmo crossing, solo, in July I am an experienced 4WD driver but with an oldish vehicle. Just saying

Safe travels ;-)

I was actually after information about possible usage for a GU 4.2 tdi I would envisage something around 18 - 20 lit per 100 to get to Kunawarritji Community. I will be taking around 240 liters and wondered if that was realistic. Many years ago my wife and I and 2 children under 2 completed the Simpson desert in FJ62 Landcruiser.

Why don't you edit your OP to reflect what you actually want?

Hi whomever. (it's so nice when people use names)

Hover the cursor over the post you wish to edit, you should see an "Edit" button appear. Press it.

Don't forget to read it all again.

The last time I edited my post I had to reinsert the end of line "returns". We used to call them carriage returns. I do not know what they are called today's "speak".

Yes the issue of the editing process taking out the "hard returns" has been raised but no one seems to want to fix it.

Hi Roger,
In answer to your question about fuel we did it last year with three vehicles and trailers, mine is a GQ and I carried 230 litres of diesel so you should be OK.

Cheers
Graham
