    Hello

    G'day All.

    My names Steve but have been called Buzzo for as long as I can remember ( sadly that doesn't mean much these day, lol) I own an old Gq Patrol ute that I bought 19 years ago after having a two year working holiday traveling around the Western half of Oz in another station wagon Patrol. Before that I lived in Esperance for a long time. So lots of sand driving,fishing and camping back then. I then got into motorbikes which I still love and have camped and traveled around Oz, UK and a few countries in Western Europe on them. I had a very long break from driving the 4WD until a few years back we decided to go to Birdsville for a drive. That lead to fortune being spent on the old car and a trip across the Simpson down to Adelaide and back via Cameron's Corner last year. The bug has well and truely bitten and here I am.

    I stumbled upon your forum while browsing the internet for information on a Madigan trip but haven't stopped reading great write ups on trips and vehicle setups since. I'm really looking forward reading more and hopefully contributing one day.

    Thank you.

    Steve, thanks for taking the the time to introduce yourself. Travelling through Europe would have been a eye opener.
    Look forward to reading about your GQ and travels also.
    Cheers

    2.8's Sound great, but a worked 3.0L goes better

    Welcome Buzzo.

    Nothing like a Simpson trip to get the bug to bite

    If you are interested in Madigans I wrote a trip report for my 2012 trip here https://www.pradopoint.com.au/forum/...ine-with-aj120

    I am hoping to go back and revisit Madigans and a bit more maybe next year, its an awesome trip.

    Cheers Andrew
    Why would I buy something for $10 when I can make it for $20

    Thank you all very much for the welcome. Fantastic.

    Thank you Andrew for the link to your trip report but I've read it all...... It was your sticker on the back window that led me to this forum.

    Cheers
