Arrow Day 20 ... Wednesday - 6 July 2016

Quote:
110kms Madigan Camp Site #6 to Madigan Camp Site #13 via the Madigan Line Simpson Desert. Today tough going for Uncle Phil's Brumby (Bee-Doo) he broke a lift kit bolt and lost the 50mm block for the lift kit, we were well prepared and had some 50mm box steel and a lift kit bolt to suit, so it wasn't too long and we had it fix. But we then notice that both torsion bars had broken! WOW, we then had to dump a lot of weight and shared Bee-Doo's load among the other Subie's and what we couldn't carry was buried. Bee-doo drove all the way cross the Simpson Desert and back to Brisbane roughly 2000kms with broken torsion bars. Just shows how tough these little cars are!


Where's Wally ?

Disaster! Phil's breakdown #3. After stopping for another over extended left rear axle, Andy notices the cause...The rear left lift block is missing!! ��

We set to making up a new block and we're on our way again ...

169kms Poeppel Corner to Birdsville QLD via QAA Line & Big Red. All arrived at the base of Big Red, but not all made it up and over Big Red, Supa-Roo on its second attempt broke a rear shock and was force to climb Little Red a few kms south of Big Red. The rest of the crew made it up & over Big Red.

Birdsville Day ...

Quote:
We make it to Birdsville for a very appreciated bed and shower at the Pub. The next day Andy and Matt unload the cars and head back to Big Red to show the big 4wds how it's done!
Dinner that night was eventful with confusion reigning in the kitchen. Phil and Dave have to wait for their meals and Matt gets groped in the dining room! ����


Birdsville ...
