Damn those Youtubes links!!

I ended floting around in Youtube world for a while.

I found this one while I was in there.

The bit where they're going into Palm Creek made me squirm.

Towing a heavy caravan on the OTL is the reason the track is screwed, and that video shows the damage being done. The OTL is no place for caravans, leave them behind and enjoy some bush camping for a change rather than bringing everything AND the kitchen sink with you into this great wilderness area. Enough said, agree or disagree as you please...

G'day ctaplin,

I don't reckon the OTL is screwed. If it was it wouldn't be from people dragging caravans up it.

I reckon they're doing a great job of building, testing and promoting their vans by going out and having awesome adventures.

To each his own but I'd give them a pat on the back if I bumped into them.

Hoo roo,
Steve.

Hi Steve, hear what you're saying but track damage on an extreme track like the OTL just makes some of those creek crossings deeper every year when huge off road caravans are dragged through there. Ask anyone that went through there this year in a solo 4x4 if they would recommend towing through Palm Creek. It would more than likely involve a fair bit of winching...

Have a look here and tell me if that is a place to risk a huge investment, let alone blocking the track for hours for other travellers?

Hi Chris,

the Palm Creek crossing looked like it was pretty early in the season. There was a lot of water in there.

We lived in Coen for two years and got a good feel for the place while we were there.
It's amazing how much water flows through there in the wet. It pretty much wipes out a lot of tracks each year and it's a new game when it stops raining.
A few metres of water each year makes more difference to a track than a couple of caravans, or a thousand fourbys plus a few trucks.

I wouldn't stress about it too much but you are free to have your opinion.

Hoo roo,
Steve
