Default Kevin's Simpson Desert mishap

I just read on sf.org that our mate Kevin had a mishap in the Simpson...

Don't worry he was with a large group and a recovery was arranged. He has been towed out and is currently in Alice Springs waiting for parts, which I believe are all covered by warranty....

All cool - it's not his Subie!!

Kevin, if you're out there - I hope it all works out well. Sounds like its working out fine. Hope you have a great 2nd leg of the trip!

I expect a full report on my desk in the morning (or at least a trip report with pics)!

Overestimated your 'real' 4wd you reckon Kevin?

Did the engine just turn off or did it just make an ominous noise prompting you to turn it off?

... My Landcruiser made some noises when it broke a piston into three bits.

It went "dollar, dollar dollar" ...
