Sure is .... we ventured out to Lake Eyre North a couple of months ago via Muloorina Station camp ground, two campers left mid morning and camp empty. On the way out to the lake we crossed paths with two other 4WD's, a couple of small ATV's and one very small sedan that seemed like it would break up at the speed it was travelling, but we never saw it again.

Not really we were there on June 19 but we had no internet (Telstra), but, in the week or so leading up to Maree I figured you may be reasonably close. I don't use the mobile for FB or Internet so we get around a bit behind the rest or the world.

Sure is, just got to talk with the bride about going back - I didn't close roof down tight and 'I' let a bit of extra dust in.....

Hi Paul

Another great video and thanks for sharing.

Just on another subject.....seeing you love seeing our great Nation with your van in tow, have you ever considered getting a Stone Stomper?

They are brilliant and will protect both van and your Pajero.

South Australian made, not a cheap Chinese import.

Looking forward to the next video



Cheers

Hi Stephen

Thanks for you comments

I have looked at a Stone Stomper & other forms of protection but never really gone ahead with anything.
I have spent a lot of time under my van fitting protection to cables & fittings. I am as yet to have a problem.
I have a heavy shade cloth "system" that I fit to the front of my van that works OK. It can stay in place for the whole trip, also have fitted larger mud flaps to the Pajero that seem to reduce the amount of stones that actually get out from the rear tyres.
Still get a few little stone chips to the lower front of the van, but nothing I can't recoat if it worries me. We usually travel carefully on these tracks anyway.
To be honest, I don't really worry about it too much. I do cover my Pajero rear window to protect from stone strikes.
If you saw my car in person you would see many battle scars on the paint work. But not too many from stone damage, Usually it's the pin striping from narrow tracks that cause the most damage in my experience.
They are just a record of great trips !

Cheers
Paul

G'day Paul, that windy day wouldn't have been the Friday (couple of weeks ago)? We finished up in Broken Hill that night, it was horrendous!

Great area isn't it? But so very dry in most places right now.

Cheers,
Mark

Hi Mark

Yep !....It was Friday 6th Sept.

We had dust all the way from Wentworth to Packsaddle, & howling winds.....

As the video said, it was all gone the next morning. Apparently bound for Sydney

Yes, Very dry out there but it was very green along the Cooper Creek at Innamincka. That whole area has been a favorite of ours for nearly the past 20 yrs now.

Cheers

Paul
