A short video I put together from a recent trip through the SA Outback a couple of months back.

Thanks for the video Paul. We visited Arckaringa back in 2013. At that time the lady who ran the place provided a "silver service" afternoon tea. It was quite an event. We all dressed up in our "finery" and had a great time. With respect to tyre monitors I had a similar experience outside Alice Springs. A stone cut the sidewall but after the alert from the monitoring system and once I had stopped the tyre had not even half deflated. It suffered no deflation damage but unforunately it could not be repaired because the damage was to the sidewall. Fortunately Alice Springs has a great supply of tyres and I could replace it with the same brand and size.

Thanks for your comment Robert

I'm not sure but I think the family is still the same. From what I have read they have been there since 1989. They were very friendly when we were there too, but we must have missed the silver service afternoon tea. lol

As for the tyre monitors I wouldn't be without them. If that puncture had been on the van we would not have have know with a dual axel. Then end result is a shredded tyre from running flat ..... So I think they area great investment.
