good stuff.

Too much talk about details and not enough getting out there, sometimes.

Some other additions since the last post are, roof pod, recovery tracks, and a rear spare wheel bag but mounted to the roof racks on top of the recovery tracks for putting rubbish or firewood not in the car. Been working a treat so far.

Anyway, hope some of this might help someone in future.

I hope you haven't planned on doing the CSR (Canning Stock Route).

Hey @El_Freddo that was at Warroora station, just south of Coral Bay, WA. The Ningaloo reef is only about 100m off the beach there, making an amazing spot for swimming and snorkelling sheltered from the swell, great fishing and great surfing. Got the Subie working hard on the tracks there. Lots of sand and lots of rocks. After that we went to Karrijini, and now I’m at Cape Leveque.
