Well guys and girls around 4000km into trip.We are just about at half way point because of time.Have driven many of these major back road over the past thirty years several times .Always with two tonne monsters .... ie Jeep. Nissan and Mercedes who needs all that heavy weight stuff.
Have found the limit on the yeti a couple of times and that limit is fine by me.All round with what we have asked her to do and go with the extra 200kg on her back is outstanding I can not fault BETTY the YETI on her maiden trip.All you suburban trippers get out and get in to it.Had to get a wheel alinement due to a large pot whole late one nite ...I was asleep at the time?????.The standard lights on the Skoda are great no need for anything else we have done several long night section.The mighty littleV W 2 litre diesel has been on song the whole time with some sandy tracks in second gear and 3000 screaming RPM 's. Tyres have been the Achilles heel with one gone and several sticky situation which has required all out and push never mind it's part of the fun.That all for now.

P. U. G.
Ps. Pulled air filter out and clean it ..There was a lot of bugs and dust.EASY JOB in and out 10 mins..........

Hi Pug, Well it does sound like you are having fun and lots of excitement. How about providing a route of your trip so that others who may be interested can follow your progress. Also you have not stated the purpose of this sojourn! You may also wish to share your experiences, such as; what sort of tracks has the Yeti been able to handle with ease, struggled withand faultered on- got bogged etc. This would provide a much better understanding of the capabilities of the Yeti, especially for the suburban trippers, who with the appropriate encouragement may get out there and see more of this wonderful country on both sides of the black stump!


Happy trails,

Banjobach
