Our Group had:

3 - LandCruiser 120's, stock, diesel
2 - Nissan Patrols - built
1 - Mitsubishi Pajero
1 - Jeep
1 - Isuzu Trooper - very good suspension

Only the Jeep and Trooper were petrol. <Insert Diesel envy here>

Wow. Such beautiful landscape. What an epic adventure. Thanks for the pics. Ditto on the temp question. Somewhere in the 40s?

It never got past 38. In another few weeks it would be too hot to be there unless you were a Bedouin or a camel.

Lunch
They love Colorado and Utah. Our toast at night was "Next year in Colorado." August 18th weekend Joy will have a group in Moab and as ridiculous as August in Moab is, I'll go.

Camp #2. Like Moab rocks but all sand all around.

More Toyotas in town, then look out for camels, and more sand dunes.

In photo 2 the Patrol is part of our group and the Toyota is the truck behind it.

On that sand, we just drove. No roads. No tracks to follow.
