Gibb River Rd
Just got back from a wonderful trip down Gibb River Rd. GC went well and made the trip a real pleasure.

So that's where you have been hiding.
I did that trip a couple of years ago, when it was mixed with deep mud and heavy corregation. That was in a Troopie.
How did the GC stand up?

The GC went great, love the Yokohama Geolander AT's, made the trip very comfortable. No dust got into the car and the QL worked well.

The GC looks good in that country

Re: Gibb River Rd
We came across from the Derby end this time last year in our Patrol - have done the trip a few times, but found the speed and ignorance of many drivers on the road this last time quite scary.
I would have been very worried about the new windscreen, and the collection of stone chips on the front.
Interested on your comments re the Yokohama's - I was thinking of going to BFG's but will have a look.
We're presently in Cooktown and will loop around on the Battle Camp road through Lakeland and Laura in the next couple of days.

Did that 2 years ago now in a Pajero towing a caravan. Went up to Kalumburu with it too.
Loved every minute of it.
Jeep wouldn't have struggled anywhere along there!!

Will you guys shutup about your Top End travels? You are making me cry with envy.

The photo with the boab and the mountains in the background is first class!
Great to hear about the car going so well, on a road that can shake a car to bits and test it out.
