Orchard Creek

We attempted to drive to Orchard Creek today - which is via a 4wd track behind Robin Falls - south of Adelaide River township.  Rob flew his flying machine earlier on to do a bit of aerial reconnaissance and we all met at AR at 10am.

Unfortunately we tried to cross the creek that we did earlier in the year again and I broke an air fitting connected to my air suspension when trying to get unstuck.  Everyone else got stuck too except for Dorothy.

So we had a very difficult crawl out to the highway with only about 200mm clearance and lots of nasty rocks.  Even on the highway the ride was very rough...

The rest of the gang fortunately were able to continue on to Orchard Creek - which was only a few hundred metres than we we got last time.  There were about 5 other cars.

One of these kits ( might be the go if I were going to take the Disco to remote places...
