Since Willem put up a quick report I have finnally got my pics ready and up on the web. This is by no means all of them but a small selection. Hope you enjoy.....

Great Sandy Rockhole

Thanks to all who was there and I am glad I ventured along as I learnt so much. I will not be forgetting it in a hurry.

Another thing I was impressed by, was the fact the Nissan Navara made it with only a few small tugs over the dunes...... Although I could have simply let the tyres down.

Again thanks to all and especially Willem

Hi Colin,

Have had some serious thoughts about the V8 and have decided not to get one....... Am thinking about an 06 cab chassis as well as keeping the Nav..

Had a few set backs with the getting a new one...... The biggest thing that set me back was I bought a 25t excavator........

Got to wait for the dollars to start coming in again......

Have had a quick read about your nissan..... sorry to hear about that........ I would probably have to go down the line of fixing it myself..... Will read about it shortly

Some beautiful shote Peter, what a great trip! I particularly liked to trashed Nissan and Toyota parked next to each other. Some great balance noting some recent threads on here ;-)

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Steve, thanks........

I am unfamilar with the canons these days. I had to use a film one 10 years ago for a job........ Long exposure is the way...... Need to have a look at the camera to understand it before could give u a defianant answer..... But I am sure we could catch up for a beer up your way in a year or 2....

Enjoyed looking through those pictures. Some nice ones there, and some of some characters I know too.

One old guy told me there was quite a lot of winching. That wasn't the "only a few small tugs over the dunes......" was it?
Cheers,

Thank you for sharing those with us Peter. Your clarity is excellent. As Richard said particularly like some of the night time ones.
Nice little splinter someone's pulling out of that tyre.
Out of curiosity what sized inverter was used to drive the angle grinder?

Sorry Duncan,
I forgot to reply. I had a generator, It was easier to use that than put the battery back in and out.

Great pics Peter. Glad to see you've stopped bagging the Nav. Was that actually a small bit of praise even??

Hi Ian,

Lets just say that I admit now "it is a capable 4wd"........ It is just a shame the body falls apart........ Hence still getting a cruiser........ Will prob keep the nav as a work truck now and use the Cruiser as the bush truck....... :)

Yep know what ya mean. I am driving an 1986 D21 Nav at work at the moment. Carry 1.2 tons of hay over the roughest paddocks you can imagine to feed cows, do 10 trips a day. Broke chassis once 3 years ago, and door fell off last week. Very unreliable vehicle!!!. 10 mins with a welder fixed both probs. Shes done 250000 ks of this work so I guess the boss can't complain.
