    Thanks for the tip. I always carry rope so will add it when/if I use them.

    I am just trying to decide what colour. I was thinking the olive colour to match the Perentie but I think it might be harder to find. So I think I will go for a bright colour; pink, green or blue
    If youíre buying a set just for fraser, swing by my place on the way...I have two set that Iíve never used.

    Iíve carried them to fraser, Moreton, Teewah and North Straddie but havenít got stuck. They gave me peace of mind when towing the camper.

    Probably the hardest bit on fraser is the nagala rocks by-pass depending on how dry it it and how many are stuck in hiking the track up.....Iíve only went to the cape once and there was enough sand to drive straight up the beach so didnít need the by-pass...funny thing was there were punters bogged on the by-pass while everybody else cruised passed.

    Run 18psi and you should be right everywhere.....if you do bog down just stop before spinning tyres and reverse back down....Iíve never not been able to reverse back down a soft incline track.

    Fraser is a cool place to visit....I think I read SSmith is about to hit fraser on his way to the 70th.

    Thanks Weeds.
    I have been there 3 times before but always in convoy. I think for me it is more peace of mind too.
    I was going to go 18psi at Inskip and I can always go down and up as I will have an air compressor.
    I am only going for a few days so I don't know if I will get to the cape area.
    My priorities are; Eli creek, Central station, Lake Mckenzie. I know these are the big tourist areas and that there are just as good if not better spots to go to. However, my girlfriend is coming and it will be her first time to Fraser Island.

    I will be heading there on the Monday after the LR 70th. Who knows maybe some one else will be there too.
    I have not booked any thing yet. I was planning on just doing the sand dunes camping. Do you still need to book for these? Any recommendations?
    La la la-la la la,

    Offer is still there to borrow them, and yes peace of mind and may come in handy to help others who are stuck blocking the track.

    Beach camping is our preference, you now need to select a zone, the beach is broken up into zones. On our 10 day trip last year we moved around a fair bit staying in 5 or 6 different zones although rarely in the correct zone as booked but we set up late in the day and were packed up earlish the Rangers didnít bother us.

    If youíre setting up a base than a zone around the maheno is about right.

    Itíll be school holidays when you are on the island......we are restricted to school holiday nearly all the time, itís not as bad as most make it out to be.

    I am limited to 3 nights so I think I will choose a few spots. Travelling and camping light, not sure yet whether to just tent it or buy a swag or sleep in the back.- I might have to take out the esky, storage box and fridge if we are both going to sleep in the back (I dont know if I am that keen on this option).

    The dome type double swags are easy and quick to set up and are very comfy as well, A much better option than tents or sleeping rough in the nack of the truck
