    He, he, he :-) I crossed the Simpson east to west with my Landie all by myself. Some of the story is here:



    Birdsville and Big Red



    Simpson Desert



    Simpson Desert and Dalhouse Springs



    Cheers!

    Evan Green and Jack Murray (?) undertook a similar trip in an Austin1800 with a Mini for company back in the 60s IIRC.
    The FL2 is top of my list as THE replacement for my ageing P38 when the time comes... you can take a small competent vehicle a lot of seemingly "impossible" places if you plan it...
    2019 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2CRDI (does the job .. lacks the poise and presence of the P38!)
    MY99 P38 4.6 (Thor) gone... now gracing the byways of Tasmania
    Subaru Impreza S (SWMBO's pride and joy)

    Hey Vesko

    What types did you have on your FL2 when you went out Broken Hill way? From pictures hard to see.

    We crossed last year with our FL2

    Did the same last year without a support vehicle. Ground clearance was a bit tight and am looking for a 2" lift kit to make things a bit better - plus some 16" wheels and better tyres
