View Full Version : MudRunnerTD doing the Madigan Line 2012

Well folks the final planning and servicing is being done over the next few weeks before I head out in my GUIV with my 6yo boy on a father son OZTent adventure across the Northern Crossing of the Simpson via Cecil Madigans expedition line.

Considered the most difficult crossing, the Madigan line is documented as GPS points on the map identifying the camp locations.

This will be a WOW trip for me and my little fella and I can't wait.

I have been doing a fair bit of work getting ready to go and got a bit more to do. Lots of planning and all is set. I leave on Friday 29th June and hope to return home to Geelong by Saturday 14th July 2012.

I will take heaps of pics and post them up. I will be traveling with 4 other well setup cars and it will be a trip of a life time.

Watch this space, 3 weeks to go.

What a trip that will be. Great for the kids!

I read CT Madigan's book about that trip - an easy read and quite interesting.

What I think is ama2ing is that both he and Mawson were competent exploring the Antarctic and the Desert. I know some of the challenges are the same, but there are some big contrasts as well.

Wishing you fun and plain sailing!!

Ruby Gap is still listed as closed you might want to check that and be careful in the Hale Ck if your going that way as any dark spots in the sand can be like quicksand .Had a days adventure retrieving a shorty 40 out there once lucky the beer stocks had enough reserve but the isolation is perfect.

Just an idea print a couple of star charts for when your out there and see how many the young fella can find and a game we played as kids would be to mark where the sun would come up in the morning the closest would get a couple of lollies before lunch the rest had to wait makes you more aware of what's around you is the lesson. Enjoy your trip

Hey Daz, I have been thinking and doing a bit of reading on the track you are about to do.
I'm trying to figure out the exact track you'll be doing, so my question is....any chance of showing us exactly where you'll be travelling...really curious.

From what I understand it is a bloody tough track so any insight would be very handy mate.

...and yes, I'm jealous....hahhahah

Searching the Web i found this

http://www.robsexpedition.com/uploads/1/9/9/1/1991154/3572510.png?952

Not the best but you get the idea, 4 hours North from Mt Dare to Old Andando Station for the launch then Fully Remote across the desert. 1100 Dunes half a km apart with Spinafex valleys between. Finish line is Running South down to Birdsville via the QA line i think.

Here is a couple of links i just found for you to have a bit of a read.

Well i spent the long weekend working on the GU getting ready for this trip.

I mounted up the ARB compressor in the side well of the rear drawers and wired up a Sub Fuse board into the same place.

I fitted led strip lighting to both rear doors and switched independently to each side. Nice!. While i was there i ran a wire and relay through the back door to fit up a reverse / camp light to the outside of the back door.

I removed the rear seat behind the drivers seat and made a box to take 3 jerry cans enclosed and things looking good.

I still have to fit the winch, fit the shovel holder, finish off the storage inside.......oh ..... and pack!

2 weekends to go then we are off!

Plasnart
13th June 2012, 03:55 PM
Sensational mate! Do you need a hand fitting the winch? I can drop over this weekend if needed.

MudRunnerTD
13th June 2012, 04:45 PM
Cheers Plas, appreciate the offer mate, I am borrowing a 12k winch off of Danny ( he has them lying around ;) ) (kinda) so i will get him to hold it while i bolt her up, i expect it to be pretty basic. Feel free to drop in any time though fella, I make Gooooooood Coffee!

I rebuilt the front end last weekend too, did the wheel bearings ( feels different now), New brake pads to all 4 corners, swapped all 5 wheels back from 35s to 33s (had to steal the 3 brand newys off the Camper trailer and the brand new spare i had on the back door. Nice, 4 new Khumo KL71s for the trip and a 70% on the back door and the same off a rim on the roof.

I did an Oil and Filter change, swapped out a dead Battery and kept pretty busy.

Now like I said Darren - don't get too attached to the winch while you have it ... you know ... that reliability, strength and general all round toughness of a low mount. Already solidly braced, already a 6hp motor, a brake that stops as soon as you let go of the switch ... hey, you might even put one on the GQ!

Massive day tomorrow doing the final pack. I head off around 4pm when school is out.

I am driving with one other vehicle up to the start of the track at Old Andando Station where I will meet the other 3 cars.

Leaving Friday night heading North West. Hope to be in Mt Dare by lunch time Monday for a shower then off to old Andando for dinner Monday night.

Ready or not here we go!!!

Well leaving Renmark last night the sky opened up and dumped a big storm. We drive about 80kms north west and it stopped so camping in a wayside stop. The storm cleared up and the only rain we got was while setting up camp! Go figure!

Snuggled in the sleeping bag and the trucks have started driving past about 5:30 am so I should get up. Damn it's cold outside this sleeping bag though!!

Got to do 800 kms today to reach friends that are broken down in a hilux with a smashed shock on the Oddnadatta waiting for us to bring parts, catch yas

Yep damn it! I staked a Khumo on the third day on the inside wall. I Put 2 plugs in her and drove for 3 more days until it started leaking. Re plugged it and got another day. Was adding air for 2 days.

Got to Big Red and dropped the pressure from 25 in the back to 14psi. Took it's toll I think. Reinflated to 25 for the trip into Birdsville and got into high range for the first time in a week. (have not seen above 15km/h all week) and hit 40 on the corrigations and the plugs split and tore the inside and blew to tyre. 100m on the corrigations did the rest. 1 destroyed Khumo.

Wow I will have to and buy the mag and have a look. I can claim success finding Every Camp other than camp 3 and 4 where ther is no Public Access.

We found Camp 1 and there had not been anyone there for many many years with no foot prints or any wheel tracks to speak of. Awesome.

Given each camp now only consists of a gold painted Star Picket with a small plaque smaller than the palm of my hand! To find a couple of them by driving through unmarked bush to a dot on the gps. Zoomed in to 1000% and the dot on the GPS is a square Km! Finding the star picket at camp 1 was a big deal!

I have jumped onto Tappa Tap so I can post a couple of pics from my phone. I used the phone for the first few days then pulled the big cam out . I should have gone the good cam earlier but oh well, I had a bit going on ;)

Here are a couple of pics of the car loaded and showing the roof load.

On the roof went an RV4 oz tent, 3 Jerry cans of diesel, 2 max trax, roof bag with a bare spare tyre and tyre changing gear and a heap of "just in case" spares ( belts and hoses) for the mighty TD42 and a work bench I used to safely load the roof each day and it came in super handy as part of the kitchen when cooking each night.

18188

18189

The 25lt drum you can see at the back was the washing machine . Fill it with 5 or 6lt of water, some front loader powder and your washing and go driving! Ring out the washing when you get to your destination. Worked a treat.

So the call came early from our fellow traveller in the Hilux (Kevin) that he had a broken a front strut on his Hilux on the Oodnadatta TK damn it so time to find some parts for him.

We pulled into the wrecker in Mildura and were happy to hear that he had a front rack off a hilux in his lot and could help with what we needed.

18191

Loaded with the parts we needed we hit the road again, we headed North West and got through Renmark to find the sky open up and the rain came down.

We pulled into a wayside stop and pitched the first night camp as quick as we could. All good though as the rain left us and the sky cleared to let the warmth of the day float away.

Cold! It got real cold!

18192

We went to bed with a wet car and woke to a car covered in frozen rain drops and thick ice on the tent!

So i ripped out the drivers side back seat and replaced it with a box made from 10mm ply that finished at the same height as the Black Widow Drawers and gave me a flat floor down the drivers side which was a real winner.

It turned out that in the box would fit standing on their side 3 x 20lt jerry cans that i filled with water. I screwed down the lid and went there only when i needed to refill the water.

I had another 10lt jerry with a tap that i used for day to day water and had that in the back beside the fridge. So 70lt of tap water in all. I then bought another 3 x 10lt casks of water for drinking as i drink bottled water at home and my boy only drinks water also so 30lts would be a winner. Total of 100lts on board.

I hunted for a long range tank for the GU in the weeks leading up to the trip and I scored one off ebay for a song out of a GQ that bolted straight up and enjoyed 147lt in the back and 30 in the Sub tank and ran with another 3x 20lt jerries on the roof for a total of 237lt of diesel on board.

I used the tubs out of my camper trailer and put clothes in 1, food in another and pantry / cooking utensils in the third. I scored factory tie downs out of a Benz Van off ebay and fitted them strategically to allow for a tie down over each of the tubs with close fitting lids to hold the load well when the going got tough. Very pleased i went to this effort as it got hammered.

I moved the drop down fridge slide with the 45lt Engel to the passenger side on top of the drawers allowing for enough space for the 10lt of water to go down the side. I packed most of the food into the left side black widow drawer and the right side carried all my Tools and recovery gear. I have a fold down table on the big rear door so the fridge and the food drawer could be accessed while the table was down making a meal ;)

All in All it worked a treat.

Its a shame i did not get the video working sooner as the area between camp 1 and 1A was extraordinary and some of the heaviest bush i saw for the trip. No Tracks and was bliss.

Enjoy guys

Great to see the view out the windscreen, really enjoy the isolation of a trip like that.

Your young fella sounds like he was great company, good to hear him in the soundtrack of your vids.

Hope he enjoyed the trip.

Thanks for them
Macca

Cheers guys, yeah Zach had a great time.

I had the cam set up to the right side of the rear view mirror at about eye height so what you see in the videos is about the same angle that I was looking. Over the sand dunes was pretty blind and we basically just dropped over the top. Made corrections when we could see. Lol

Just read through this properly. What a ripper trip mate.

Can't wait to do these trips with my kids when they get older....
