Hi All
Has there been any rain on the track and is there anything we need to consider in regard to conditions? Apart from the obvious corro's, sand, rocks, sandhills etc. Any RECENT info would be great. We (Hilux and 79 series ute) are going next week.

Cheers Big Nick

Funny how on one forum we are not advised to take trailers etc because of the damage they cause. Yet on the oka forum we read that a bunch of big tractors is going onto the CSR and an interesting comment was:

A quote from the link above;

Judging by the mess this group made during a trip over the Simpson a couple of years ago, anyone wanting an easy trip up the CSR might be aadvised to start out very soon

end quote.

Please this is not a dig at OKA users. It is a dig at the tractor mob. But then it is a free world.
