ID:136127 - Travelling with your dog

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 12:01:00 GMT

Time for a new thread, the other one seems to be going off the rails. Seems by the time a thread gets to 20 posts it turns hostile in this forum.

To all those that travel responsibly with their pets, what are some of your most memorable trips that others might want to enjoy?

Try to keep this one friendly.

End of April doing desert trip.
All good except diesel on CSR.
No joy trying to contact Capricorn via email or phone.
Does anyone know what’s happening with them or other sources of fuel?

ID:136125 - Cape York early June 2018

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 07:54:00 GMT

Hi all,
Cape York, we're finally doing it :)
Departing Adelaide, booked in at Port Douglas for weekend of 26th May then onto Cooktown via Bloomfield if open. After that its unknown territory for us. Possibly get as far as Bramwell around 3rd June.
So if you're up that way and see a white Isuzu Dmax with canopy, bullbar etc towing a camper trailer be sure to give us a wave :)

ID:136123 - Diesel Storage

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 05:48:00 GMT

I think this might have been talked about once before. I get a lot of different answers storing diesel fuel in an air tight drum. How long would it be ok till it starts going off?

ID:136120 - Dogs in the deserts

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 10:31:00 GMT

Been looking but it is hard to put together a quick overview on just where you can and cant travel with your pooch in the deserts.

How many of you travel with a dog and how much does it restrict you from doing popular tracks and crossings?

ID:136116 - The camper trailer bbq dilemma

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 06:03:00 GMT

I currently have the 3-burner Coleman stove with the hotplate. It works well, in theory, in that it can boil a kettle, do flat plate cooking, and fold up reasonably compact. In practice, the temp control doesn't work (way too hot and turns itself up after manually turned down), the hot plate warps (no longer a flat plate), and the latch on the cover is not particularly robust (comes open).

Yet I am struggling to find an alternative. Gasmate (cruiser is discontinued), Voyager looks a bit crap, and the everdure neo buddy also looks a bit crap (ie flimsy).

I use a Weber Baby Q at home, and love it, but it's too big for our camping setup.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

The current one I'm considering is the gasmate Hot Ozi. It would handle most of my needs (on paper), but I have no idea how well it really cooks, and I would prefer if it had a lid.

Any helpful suggestions ?

ID:136108 - Dash Cameras

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 06:06:00 GMT

I am looking at getting a Dash Cam with possibly a rear camera as well for my 76 Series Land Cruiser. I spend a lot of time off road on rough tracks and corrugations so I'm after ideas on what the best brand and model is to get.
