I love my truck. But the cost of upkeep really makes it hard sometimes.
Something Chantelle and I really enjoyed was driving on Stockton Dunes, which is a few hours drive north of Sydney. We were looking forward to introducing the kids to it, knowing it was close by now we were in WA.
I currently own a GU Nissan Patrol. It’s one of the last 4.2l diesels bought into Australia. Before that, I've owned a Navara, a Surf and a Lada Niva!
The trip was more of an explore than a traditional 4wd trip. Only a couple of times did I need to go into low range and that was to go around fallen trees that were blocking the track. There were plenty of those, most still the remnants of a bushfire from a couple of years ago.
