Apparently the Canning is a little boggy in some sections at the moment.

Was talking with a mate the other night who’s dad is currently on the canning and commented that currently all 4 vehicles are bogged (2 Patrol’s, 1 Land Cruiser and 1 Maverick). Currently they have been stuck for 2 day’s. Do not know the position but believe it is around the half way mark.

Sorry that is all the track info I have.

Probably stuck in Savory Creek. Take the wrong route there and you are in for a messy time. Poor buggers probably only have hand winches too :o)

As far as I know they do not have winches (Except maybe on one of the patrol’s)

They are all experienced and apparently not to concerned about it.

They are doing a north south crossing, at leased they have a sat phone, plenty of diesel and food, they will probably need it.

Was talking to a party on the Canning from North to South. Slightly boggy around Lake Gregory area but no worries down to Well 19 area today. Different parties, different times, different problems I guess.

Have just completed bottom half of CSR (heading south) on Friday. If you stick to the track you will have no problems - venture off the track and you are history or very bogged!

Would you be able to put up a new post on any information from your team on the Canning. Have they been able to move on and where were they stuck.Conditions of the track and water supply would be much appreciated.
Looking forward to new post
Many Thanks
