    Yeah our plan is a 20l jerry plus 2 of those casks for drinking water. We have a water bladder that goes across the rear footwell we will use for cooking/cleaning water.

    A bit of news posted on Facebook today may be of interest to all of you intending to head into the Simmo this year.

    "The Birdsville hotel is pleased to announce that it will be launching from late April/early May a Simpson Desert 4WD recovery service. A custom-built Mercedes Benz 4x4 Arocs equipped to cater for 5 passengers, including children if required, will feature a specially designed sliding tilt tray for recoveries in a rugged sand dune environment. At a cost of nearly half a million dollars, this state-of-the-art vehicle will revolutionise recovering vehicles out of one of the most remote areas in the country. Over the past 3 years no recovery service has been operated due to the retirement of an outgoing long-standing operator. This new operation will give confidence to those travelling and holidaying across one of the most beautiful places in Australia, the Simpson Desert, our backyard!

    Crossing the Munga-Thirri NP however doesnít come without its challenges and while this is part of the attraction for many, it can also be a worry for those considering embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. Most Roadside Assistance and General Insurance Polices do not cover the Simpson Desert and emergency callout services can take weeks and cost upwards of $10,000 meaning breaking down will likely ruin even the most resilient 4WD enthusiastsí journey. In the coming weeks information on our Recovery Assistance Packages will be released and are designed to make an unfortunate breakdown rescue much more affordable for travellers choosing to buy a package. For only a few hundred $$$ youíll be able to purchase a recovery package on-line assuring you peace of mind that if something does go wrong, youíll be covered for a recovery. More details coming soon.

    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.
    WARNING: Towballs used for recoveries can, and do kill people and damage property.
