Hi Marcus

Is it possible for you to put some context to your feedback you left in the article?

Is it possible to assume that the route in the article does not match your intended travel plans?

If so, you can invert the route by clicking on the semi-circular orange arrow to the right of the two place names. This will invert all of the directions, waypoints etc to match your (assumed) direction of travel.

I hope this helps!

Cheers

Travelled the traditional track direction (North to South) and had to exit at well 33 due to the bottom track closed (flooding). The only issues we had were with an Oka heading north running 38psi (admitted) which chewed the track to bits. Heard him attempting to climb one sand dune and after about 15 mins he appeared on the top. Spoke to him about tyre pressure and he blamed v8 landcruisers for chewing up the track.

Then we had a group with trailers snatching themselves over a heap of dunes.

We had no trouble and used low range on three sand dunes due to the chewed up track to the top. For those interested our average speed was about half that in track notes and we ran 10psi front, 15psi rear and 10psi camper. Fuel consumption in the MY16 (200 series with DPF) was 30 (and a bit) per 100kms.

Diesel at Billiluna $2.90, Mulan $2.20 and well 33 roadhouse $3.40.Punmu was $2.50 (cash) or $3.00 (card).

The corrugations were worst between wells 35 to 33.

One of the wells was unusable due to a chemical potty being emptied into it.
Rangers station checking permits at well 49 and it was the best water other than well 33 which had green grass.

Ran into two blokes with a camel train (5 camels) and the info is on greatsandy18.com. One of the riders was the great grandson of Warburton and they were following the original 1870 track notes. Also ran into a trackcare team who were installing duel toilets and restoration of wells.

I believe the CSR is still crown land and the property owners land is on either side of the allocated crown land so I am not sure if the so called trailer ban is enforceable or legal. We respected this in any case. Rangers told us that the property owners (wells 1 to 4) changed hands but we did not make any inquiries if the signed 'no trailers' is still the wishes of the property owner.

"One of the wells was unusable due to a chemical potty being emptied into it."

I cannot believe that a human being could be so ignorant/dumb/stupid/callous. I guess they are not really human beings, more sub-human, if they've evolved that far. Should be strangled at birth.

Is it better to tow a trailer to spread the weight or travel in an overloaded vehicle when doing the CSR
