Hi Bucky,
Great job guys.

I know Lyn was the "expensive camera mount" to absorb all the shock and bounce (great job Lyn..), but what sort of camera did you use?

You're hooked now Bucky. You'll be blowing that 500 meg limit on Vimeo every week. Good work. Now you can practise putting them in your blogs.

Cheers Mick

Well done with the videos. I am interested to know how you managed to obtain permission to travell via Surveyor General's Corner.

regards
Mike.

Just send an email, or ring the mob up.

Vivien C (member) actually organized all the permits, We must have had 9 in all.
The Survyor General's corner, once the permit was emailed to us, was just as easy, as reporting the information centre at Wingenilla Community, where the locals are really nice, paying $100 per vehicle, and $20 per person, to the administrator.

A guide will take you out to the corner, we had a great little bloke called Lance, and doing the photo thing, having a look, and then leaving.

Mike,

You get your permit for Surveyor Generals Corner from the Department of Indigenous Affairs (DIA) Western Australia . They have a website and you just apply online. It took about a week, maybe two but no problems.

When you get to Wingellina you go to the Office where you pay $100 per vehicle, $20 per person and the local guide takes you out to the corner.



Best wishes

Viv

G’day Bucky,
Thanks for posting the videos. It’s a bugger watching them from home though.
You said in one of the videos that the vehicles had sustained some sort of damage. Just wondering if you could elaborate and advise how the trailer stood up.
Thanks,
Myles.

Both campers sustained very little damage.
Both campers, although vastly different suspension, ha no problems there.

Nothing major, and definately did not stop us in any way.

Our Track Shak, had to have a rear door seal replaced, and developed a small crack, 8 - 10 cm long, near the spare hub, where there is a brace tacked to the sidewall. Electric brakes failed, but that happened the plug dislodged on the Gibb River Road, and the bloke driving the Patrol (me) didn't pick it up, so the trailer plug got a trifel bit ground away. Rewiring it has caused me some grief, but I am of Irish decent, so that may explain a few things.


Viv & Ray's Outback camper, with it's rubber Torsion bar susppension, they buggered their water tank, *( can't remember but it may have been the pump ) now fixed..
A home modification to bring electrics to the outside failed, and almost caught fire at or near Well 49..That too is fixed..

All ready to go again....

Cheers Bucky
