    Another dead outback

    Didn't take long for another post that could have been avoided.
    Stay with your car. these ppl didn't and unfortunately one has loss his life.
    Please make sure you know what your doing when outback, it's can be a brutal place.
    my thoughts go out to all involved.
    plenty of water an Epirb and a VHF or satallite Phone even a UHF my help,
    THIS WAS avoidable , IMO just poor planning, lets make it the last.

    My feelings go out.
    Working out bush for the last 7 years planning like that is second nature.
    Can we make this a sticky thread or make a sticky thread highlighting the risks involve with remote travel and minimum recommended ewuipment to take.
    Stick it with the never snatch from towballs post

    Not hard to follow a few simple rules ,plenty of water, an Epirb. and stay with the vehicle, provide some shade. use very little energy. UHF, VHF
    No wonder they shut the Simmo down over summer, Come on MODS make it a Sticky it may be one of our members next and I for ond wouldn't want that.
    weather warming up too, This is the 4th death I've posted in what 3-4 months, surely we can stop one if not more

    Hi threedogs. Couldn't agree more - I posted up something from my experience with EPIRBs/PLBs which might be worth taking a look at for your thoughts too.

    http://www.nissanpatrol.com.au/forum...PIRBs-and-PLBs

    I know some of the newer PLBs also come with tracking and minimal code sending options as well which didn't write up about but they are pretty good too - but the subscriptions can add a bit to the base cost.

    Is this the death we spoke about last week 3d of the guy checking the Bore?

    If that's the death you refer to then I'm happy to make That thread a sticky as it was a pretty comprehensive discussion. Of greater value to newbys than a condolence thread.

    It included News Thread of the death and links to video of the area.

    Unless there is a new death of some goose in Hyundai?? As Chris stated but I think he was taking the piss?? Maybe?? God I hope so!!!
    Its a Nissan! =====> Its a Keeper!! ....... Got a TD42 in it BONUS!! ....... I'm a lucky bugger! I've got 2 of em!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.
