On another forum someone was asking about a sand spear for an extended camp on the beach at Fraiser Island...

Good luck finding a square foot of sand that hasn't been used as a toilet.

I heard somewhere that using sand spears is not permitted? 

(That's the things used to extract water out of sand you're referring to right? -  ie not a sand anchor?)

Yep they are banned, though some would still use them ..
 We use a 12 v pump and roughly a  6" x  2.5 " section of a spear to filter  water into 4 x 25 ltr drums from little fresh to brackish seepage streams along the beach, just scoop out a shallow depression and lay it in  / creeks for showers and clothes washing .. Away from  the camping areas of course . Never had any health issues in 25 years .
You do still get some very fine sand through the filter and pump into the drums .

They are good if you can find a good water source.
But they are not permitted in national parks.

Hi,
     There some occasions where laughter is perhaps inappropriate, no matter how funny the situation.

My kids tell me that all the time... ;)
But no matter how inappropriate it may be, I can help but piss myself whenever they do something stupid and hurt themselves a little bit. ;D

Hi,
     Perhaps the misguided macho enthusiastic approach of the recovery driver.
Getting stuck, has to be worn by that driver, but the damage caused by the recovery was undeserved and unfortunate.

Laughing or not laughing doesn't change the situation. May as well have a laugh.....

And you can almost bet he'd be the type to sook up and want to fight anyone with a camera.  If he was the focal point of some hilarious misfortune.

I recognised Carlo as a tiler from my old area, if I remember correctly he use to have a big ford f 150. Bet he wishes he still does.

That's either the latest dual cab Hilux or a Dmax , the van looks like a MDC XT17 Off Road Hybrid Caravan..
Looking at the ute..
  • Rear tires looks to have a lot of air pressue, guess the van would be the same.
  • That's an extended tray, could be upto an extra meter, and a very extended tow ball
  • The tray looks very loaded and some reason no tray sides. Petrol, Diesel, must have a generator, so much gas, as the van will have gas as well

Looking at the SPECs of that caravan as from http://www.marketdirect.com.au/xt17#specifications
  • Ball 200kg -- Very heavy Tow Ball before laoding
  • GTM 3,000kg
  • Gas Cylinders 2 x 9kg
  • Jerry Cans   2 x 20L -- probably drawbar

Looks like so much work has gone into the setup, but it's a bit sad really as the overloading ended in a ruined holiday.

:cheers:

The ute is a Mazda BT50
The caravan is more likely the smaller MDC xt12 or similar
I wish when I was contracting I got payed metre rates using your meter measurement, not sure the tray is a meter longer than standard
We are all just guessing
The gas bottle and jerry cans may be empty
