Post Pics from Raid Australia 2008
I participated in Raid OZ in 2008.
A good friend of mine, rented a 2CV from 2CViking, who at that time lived in Australia.
And so far, this was the road trip of my life...
Five weeks, mostly bush camping, driving from 5 degrees C to 50 degrees C.


You see 2CViking in the dirty clothes in the background:

And red dusty roads for the next 5.000 K's...

Lake Minigwall. No wind, no birds, nothing. The only sound was our heartbeats and kids playing...

Red dust, blue sky:

Welding by two connectet batteries:

Lots - but exotic - of roadkills:

More to come...

tfaerch,
great photographs.
This one had me wondering what would happen if the welding arc ignited the hydrogen gas which will be escaping from the batteries.
Wouldn't be much fun having your rear end that close to one battery which exploded, never mind a couple of them... :lol:

No worries. This is done on every raid without any problems. The winds little or none dialute the gasses from the battery
