    Our Cape trip

    For those of you that might be into the cape,heres little bit of our trip North... Fuck so much to see so little time.

    ok were back home now..... fucking long way up there from sydney we did 7500ks in 3.5 weeks .we have quite few photos and videos to sort through,then Ill upload to a host and post up some more pics. For those interested in doing this trip in the future
    The coloured sands at Elim beach


    Apart from getting bogged on Elim beach (my stupid fault) which required quite abit of kit to get me out,after snatching,higlifting max trax and a winching we got her free and in which i ruined the rear brakes(new one going in tommorrow)

    but i did wash them out ASAP with our shower attachment.

    so brakes were non exsistant most of the trip,my starter motor died on the PDR coming home(but in hilux true fashion it fixed it self). , one of the cars(bt50) lost a tie rod nut sending them into the bush at speed ,as well as it lost its intire fully loaded roof basket on another track previous there was a near miss at Loyalty beach where a large tree fell on one of our cars then landed on his tent/swag which had he been in the tent Im afraid he wouldnt be here to tell the tale.


    I believe the Bt50 also had a crack in the fuel tank at Weipa but we left early so didnt experience having to fix that but i have seen the photos...
    so heres a few to get started not in order,which Ill sort out soon
    Triventhen?? gorge/falls



    before that


    this is at Kalpower crossing


    then at Chilli beach it was very windy and chilli there......... nice place though


    a favourite of mine


    the old girl doing her job in Palm creek.......No winching needed ;D


    locals we met



    the famous Archer burger.Oh yeh....


    Bertie creek


    oh yeh and we did this too,we took our workshop mascot with us he had a blast





    I didnt enjoy the Development road home all the way to Laura it was a constant battle to keep the car straight and on the road.
    we took the coast road up and the new england home which was a nice drive after Laura,doing about 1000ks a day just to get home.

        we have about 2000+ photos 5 cameras going + 2 Gopros and a video camera... waiting for the rest of the crew to come back next week to get everything togeather,they got to do the CREB track today even though we were told it was closed and impassable. Im fucking spewing about that..

        As for the budget we used $1882 worth of fuel the, hilux fuel consumption was 11.4ltrs/100ks loaded to the hilt as you see it, me and a mate went halves in the fuel +$1000 spending money but I came home with $300 in my wallet.
        We took heaps of food in the drawers and tubs and an 80ltr Engel fridge/freezer full of food.....
        Beer @ $65 per cartoon which is restricted most places so dont expect it to be a month long blinder and fuel up top is $1.84 at musgrave then gradually gets to $2.45 ltr at Bamaga...... they are your biggest cost camping fees are fuck all, Average was about $15 per person if in a van park,the Jardine ferry is Now $129 which includes national park camping fees,as does the permits for Elliots falls. Backpackers everywhere too.
        we went to Bramwell station festival which was good,which we had of been able to do more of the roedeos and festivals but just misses out on the dates we were there. Ill write a complete run down on the trip in the next few days .
        And it depends on how much you want to spend on vehicle preparation,you should really have good HD sliders all the vehicle we saw with factory alloy side steps were fucked,new tyres whatever your brand preference I fitted BFG KM2 mud terrains,the side walls are fucked on them now though.8000ks old !!!!!!!!!

                They helped as did my mates winch my hi-lift jack home made rear bar,sliders and 1 broken snatch(tow) strap......... but we got her out. after about 20 frantic minutes

                It spooked me for the rest of the trip.

                      thanks for sharing! very very keen to do this one day..

                      problem is that i'm a massive noob at all things off road, which is a matter of practice I suppose... but I don't own a 4wd... and I'd much rather do this kinda trip in my own vehicle that I am familiar with, and know how to drive comfortably than a rental thing that had been cained by backpackers and that i was nervous about bending the whole time...

                      more pics + stories + details of prep please

                      you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.
