Recent book reviews story of North Texas vigilante hangings

H

istorians like to commemorate anniversaries of important events. The year 2012 was the 150th anniversary of vigilante action in North Texas which resulted in the hanging of 42 men. Two citizens knowledgeable of the happenings in 1862 wrote accounts that told somewhat differing stories. Dr. Thomas Barrett's essay was published in 1885, and the other by George Washington Diamond remained unseen for over a century. Combined into one volume, the Texas State Historical Association published both accounts in 1963 with the title "The Great Hanging in Gainesville, 1862. Recently the TSHA added an Introduction by historian Dr. Richard B. McCaslin based on his book, Tainted Breeze and republished the earlier book. Through the years the citizens of Gainesville, located on I-35 about five miles south of the Oklahoma border, did not like talking about the hangings. In the 2012 book Dr. McCaslin, chairman of the history department at the University of North Texas, gave an overview of what happened. The census of 1860 in Cooke County indicated that most of the population did not own slaves, but well-todo slave owners dominated the local economy and for many years had held most political offices.

Bewley after finding he possessed a letter that apparently tied him to a secret order. Of the 19 counties in Texas where a majority rejected secession, eight were in North Texas – Cooke, Grayson, Collin, Montague, Fannin, Wise, Jack, and Lamar. Dr. Barrett, who served on the jury, had argued that the verdict should be unanimous, or at least two-thirds for guilt. He wrote in his account that not all the men in the Peace Party were Unionists. Some joined the organization simply because they did not want war. One had the feeling that Dr. Barrett was defending his own actions for being a member of the Court. Diamond's account of events staunchly supported the Citizen's Court. He said people feared a slave insurrection. He argued that Court rulings were due process and not vigilante action. Sentiment through the years has not been sympathetic to the vigilantism and quick hangings. After republication of the book on the hangings in 2012, the city of Gainesville held a symposium on the event, remembering the lives lost. If one ever doubted it, during the Civil War strong emotions prevailed, even in Texas, the most western state of the Confederacy. Retired history professor J’Nell Pate of Azle has authored several books, many of which are on sale in the lobby of the Azle News.

ings. Because of what appears to be the onset of dementia, she has gotten lost while out and about. Her apartment, while comfortable, is more and more insufficient for her daily needs. She lost her twin sister and roommate almost a year ago and she’s been pretty lonely ever since. It appears that the time has come to make that hard decision about moving her to a place where she will get better care. No, I’m not talking about a mother or an aunt; I’m talking about a Golden Retriever. I’ve mentioned her a few times in previous LIFE MATTERS posts, most recently from Gerry Lewis December 1, 2014 (“Fear Not … Seriously!”). She makes me crazy, but I’m going to miss her when she’s gone. I’ve been dreading the day when her health might necessitate the difficult quality of life decision. It was hard on me when that call had to be made with her sister. (“Saying Goodbye to a Fetching Friend” – March 3, 2014). But a new conversation came up a few weeks before Christmas that resulted in the longest car ride of her life this past weekend. We took her to Amarillo to live with the little girl who, almost 13 years ago, saved up her money for her dream puppy, researched all the best ways to “test” a puppy, and fell in love with a beautiful little golden bundle of fur when she visited the breeder. Favorite daughter named that little puppy Kiley Ann Lewis and trained her, loved her, groomed her, and made her very much the center of attention until the girl went off to college and the dog stayed home. Now the little girl is a grown up married woman and mother of my perfect granddaughter. They have a house with a big yard and have decided that they would like to be Kiley’s assisted living facility, where she can live out her days being pampered and getting a whole lot more attention than old Dr. Grandpa can give her. She’ll get to sleep inside the house and be stroked and groomed and petted by the first hands that ever showed her that kind of love. She’ll also get to frequently be touched by little hands that Dr. Grandpa wishes he could hold more often than he does. I’m not sure what spiritual lesson there is in all this except that I want everyone to know that God is right in the middle of our lives. Every blessed moment comes from Him. Every joy. Every blessing. Every expression of love and loyalty. Every treasured memory. Our lives matter so much to Him that…there is nothing about our lives that does NOT matter to Him. I’ve had both misty eyes and a big smile while writing this today. I hope you’ve had the same in reading.

Perry gives his parting speech as governor as legislative session begins

G

ov. Rick Perry delivered his farewell address to a joint session of the House and Senate on Jan. 15 on day three of the 140-day regular session of the 84th Texas Legislature. Before recounting various aspects of the state’s performance during his record-breaking tenure as chief executive, Perry said, “I have come here to reflect on what we have done together, and to say farewell. But most of all, to tell you it has been the highest of honors to serve as your governor for the last 14 years.” Perry painted a picture of Texas “as a land of unlimited opportunity” with mentions of such items as job growth, the booming oil and gas industry, various other economic drivers, fiscal management, education and public safety. “While some still struggle in the shadows of opportunity, we have created tremendous possibilities for millions of Texans. While the rest of the nation has lost middle class jobs, Texas has created them,” Perry said. He also reminded the audience of challenges recently faced, such as

“the disintegration of the Space Shuttle Columbia, Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike, devastating wildfires, the spread of Ebola and a humanitarian crisis at the border.” Wrapping up, Perry said, “I couldn’t pick a better successor as governor than (former Texas Attorney General) Greg Abbott. And he couldn’t have two better partners to lead this state than (Lieutenant Governor and former Senator) Dan Patrick and (House Speaker) Joe Straus. As I bid farewell, I know the future is in good hands.” Straus reelected as speaker State Rep. Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, was elected to a fourth consecutive term as speaker of the Texas House of Representatives on Jan. 13, opening day of the 84th Texas Legislature. The vote was 128-19 in favor of Straus. The 19 votes were for second-term state Rep. Scott Turner, R-Frisco, a businessman and former National Football League player. Revenue estimate is given Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar on Jan. 12 released the state’s Biennial Revenue Es-

State revenue from all sources is estimated at $221 billion for the next biennium, a total that includes $110 billion in federal receipts and other income.

ennium. And, about $5 billion will be set aside for transfers to the Rainy Day Fund and State Highway Fund. The resulting $113 billion represents the estimated revenue available to the Legislature for general purpose spending in the next biennium, according to the comptroller’s office. Hegar noted, “The significant drop in oil prices in recent months will likely lead to a marked slowdown in oil exploration and production. This slowdown will dampen overall economic growth in Texas. However,” he added, “in addition to the economic boost felt by Texas motorists as a result of lower gasoline prices, there are industries in Texas’ diverse economy such as transportation and some manufacturing that will benefit from lower energy prices. This, coupled with continued strength in construction, professional services and other sectors of the broader economy, should somewhat counterbalance a slowdown in the energy sector.”

Dawson Donate Life Texas Registry, the database “of individuals who have officially indicated their decisions to donate organs and tissue to benefit thousands of people currently awaiting transplants.” DPS Director Steven McCraw said, “Every person who selflessly elects to register as a donor has the potential to save another individual’s life.” In 2014 a record 226 registered donors made nearly 800 transplants possible and currently, more than 13,600 individuals are awaiting organ or tissue transplants in Texas alone, according to the group Donate Life Texas.

Obama, Kerry hit wrong notes over in Paris Dear Editor: With the recent horrors of terrorism in man’s inhumanity to one another, the leaders of the free world wanted to join in unison with each other to denounce this evil form of life in a solitary march in Paris, France Jan. 11. Was Barack Obama, America’s leader and president, there representing us along with the other leaders? Of course, not! Mr. Obama has bigger fish to fry; as we learned through the media, he was busy double dipping cheese dip watching NFL playoff games and wondering, like the rest of us, was it a catch or not by Dez Bryant. In a perverse sort of way, this behavior didn’t move any seismograph needles off the charts as that is what we expect from his conduct for six years now. Then, on Jan. 16, Secretary of State John Kerry – by direction of the government – was sent to France to mollify things for our president’s total dereliction of duty (AWOL) and his not taking terrorism seriously. What does Mr. Kerry do to appease? He’s dusting off an old hippie musician, James Taylor, to play and warble one of his sappiest tunes, “You’ve Got a Friend” to the French foreign minister and the president of France. If anyone had seen this folly in the news of Mr. Kerry standing wooden, his eyes closed and weeping and mouthing the lyrics of Mr. Taylor’s song – coupled with Mr. Taylor contorting himself to reach the microphones – one would think that this was a rerun of a Saturday Night Live skit. Personally, I hadn’t seen Kerry get this emotional over an ally of his since the 1970’s – North Vietnam. In hindsight, let’s be honest: It would have been more apropos to invite Judy Collins to sing “Send in the Clowns.” Inarguably, our country has been reduced to caricatures as clowns, and the terrorists are shaking in their boots when they hear the name Barack Obama.

Movie Man

Azle News Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Eastwood hits bull’s-eye with American Sniper This is one of those movies. Sometimes films are highly anticipated. Or advertised to the max. Or both. Like: Gone with the Wind (1939). Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). Passion of the Christ (2004, Movie Man No. 549, an 8). And a slew of sequels starring Batman, Han Solo, Matrixians, glittery vampires, teenage revolutionaries in dystopian worlds, and Hobbits. Now comes another wellhyped movie that fans have been waiting for, American Sniper. It delivers – to its conservative base and as a very well-made motion picture. About the film The story of Chris Kyle, the most successful sniper in U.S. military history, is well-known locally. His book was huge nationally and Kyle’s shocking murder and the outpouring of patriotic compassion that packed thousands into AT&T Stadium for a memorial service made him a legend. When it was announced that the movie version of the book would be directed by noted conservative Clint Eastwood, anticipation really began to build. A powerful, tense preview amped up audiences. Other exceptional coming attractions followed. Then the heavy ad campaign continued with American Sniper’s early platform rollout – opening in a low number of theaters then steadily expanding weekly – raised the movie’s profile even more. Finally, the awards season arrived with star Bradley Cooper especially gaining attention. When the Oscar nominations came out, the film was poised for a record breaking performance. And that’s what’s happened. American Sniper broke every January record it could in its initial opening. The plot Raised by a hard-nosed father, Kyle (Cooper) joins the military

after seeing televised terrorist attacks that killed Americans overseas. He enlists in the Navy and becomes a SEAL. Noted for his firearm skills, Kyle becomes a sniper and soon is deployed, leaving wife Taya (Sierra Miller) behind. Overseas, Kyle is a killing machine; perched on rooftops, he picks off threats below – terrorists, who are sometimes women and children – whose deadly efforts could kill his fellow soldiers. After his first tour, Kyle becomes sullen back home. So he returns overseas, becoming a legend at what he does. Meanwhile, Taya is getting more distressed – frantic while he’s away and bummed with Kyle’s disengaged separation when back home. He returns for three more tours while a family builds back in the states. In his final trip, he and his compadres find themselves atop a building surrounded by hordes of terrorists. That’s when Kyle spies, over a mile away, the enemy’s most deadly sniper. If Kyle takes the “impossible” shot, it will expose him and his cohorts to the scores of enemy all around them. But it might be his only chance to take down Iraq’s “Butcher” (Mido Hamada).

American Sniper No. 1 with a bullet Starring: Bradley Cooper, Sierra Miller, Keir O’Donnell Directed by: Clint Eastwood Rated R: Violence, explicit gore, language, war email: movieman@azlenews.net

... on a scale of 1-10

Movie Man What works Cooper is great here. It’s the sort of non-showy role that lacks histrionics but is no less powerful. Director Eastwood – ripped off from a Best Director Oscar nod – often frames Cooper in close-ups; the actor’s blank face and haunted, weary eyes say everything. Several scenes are quite tense. The coming attraction sequence – where he must decide whether to shoot a boy carrying an ordnance – comes early and its resolution is shocking. There’s also a scene where Kyle must choose whether to take out the Butcher while a gigantic sand storm bears down. But even that’s not the tensest (see Best scene).

The movie looks fantastic, all muted and dirty. It flies along and has an ending that is heart-wrenching with its reallife footage of the public’s outpouring of emotion following Kyle’s death.

Kyle lets down his guard as the man offers the soldiers a meal. But Kyle still suspects the host and eventually his fears are recognized. So they send the local man into the business across the street to gain access for the troops. That sets off a bloodbath. The tension at the dinner table is palpable. It’s maybe the top scene in a movie loaded with taut sequences.

And you can’t have a realistic sniper movie without explicit violence and gore.

Summing up Doves will complain that American Sniper is another jingoistic hawk movie glorifying war and murder. It’s anything but that. It feels real and leaves viewers with a sense of what war might actually be like. Everyone needs to know about that. And plenty got it – judging from the audience’s dead siWhat doesn’t work The stateside scenes get repeti- lence after the movie was over. tive.

There are a few too many scenes of Cooper staring blankly at the TV, disregarding his wife and kids.

Gentlemen, start your engines... BY NATALIE GENTRY Azle resident John Burgoyne has a passion for power – the power found in turn-of-the century engines, that is. His interest in the forerunners to our modern motors began at an early age. Burgoyne has always been interested in restoring antique motor cycles, and at the age of 16, he began a five-year apprenticeship at Bristol City Engines in England. He went on to become a mechanical engineer and he said the interest in early engines was a natural extension. “I got heavily into this about 30 years ago,” he said. Today, Burgoyne is the president of branch 43 of the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association (EDGE & TA), a national club. “We have about 75 local members of the Granbury Fly-

wheelers,” Burgoyne said. “We want to spark an interest in collecting, restoring, and preserving gasoline and oil engines and other equipment of historical value.” Burgoyne moved to Azle about eight years ago after living and working as a mechanical engineer and fabricator in Fort Worth for 49 years first at Bell Helicopter and then in his own machining shop. He bought the land the museum sits on four years ago. “I thought it would make an ideal museum for my engines.” “Horsepower” At the turn of the century there were no electric motors to run any of the equipment that we often take for granted today. In fact many rural areas didn’t have electricity until the 1940s. When small engines became

available many people purchased them to run everything from threshers to sewing machines to cotton gins. “You can drive around Texas today and there are still a lot of old abandoned cotton gins and inside there is usually an engine similar to these,” Burgoyne said. The engines at the museum represent the earliest of engines; they are forerunners to what we have in our cars today. The oldest engine in the museum – a Westman gasoline engine – is estimated to be from about 1899 or 1900 and it is the only one of its kind known to exist. “It was found in the Westman family lake house pumping water,” Burgoyne said. There are approximately 50 four-cycle engines in the museum ranging from 1899 to about 1950 including early John

Azle early engine museum a wealth of information

Deere engines and a forerunner to the Massey Ferguson. There are a few two-cycle engines in the collection as well. In addition Burgoyne builds quarter scale working engines. “The models are easier to carry around, that’s for sure,” Burgoyne said with a smile. “One Piece at a Time” Many of the engines in the collection still have their original paint and many original parts. A couple of lucky finds are surprisingly well preserved. However, Burgoyne does own several engines that were missing many pieces and required what he calls “mechanical forensic” to rebuild. For instance, when Burgoyne began reconstructing his 1905 Sharples engine, he only had a single sketch and an approximately 300 word description to work from. “You’ve got to say ‘what would have been appropriate for this time frame and what material would they have used,” he said. “Then you reconstruct the engine as best you can with information that is available.” This process includes fabricating the missing pieces because they aren’t available for purchase. “I actually had to rebuild a 1989 machine just to cut the keyways and flywheel on the Sharples,” Burgoyne said. “I spent two months rebuilding the machine and it took 15 minutes to make the parts.”

“Fuel” Burgoyne noted he hopes the museum will fuel an interest in the old engines. “There are not many young people in the area involved in the EDGE & TA, or reconstructing the early engines” he said. “I want to let people know about the museum and I hope that we can get John Burgoyne, of Azle oils a 1907 Foos engine at his small engine museum in Azle. young people interested in the hobby. “If someone just leaving school can This type of engine – sitting on its original cart – would have been used to run early farm equipment such as threshers or hay baler.

Another engine at the museum with an interesting story is this 1920 Petter Junior which was used to power homes in rural England as late as the 1940s. Photo by Natalie Gentry get their teeth into something like this and really build a good understanding I think it makes them a better mechanic,” Burgoyne continued He said he felt that having the basic knowledge of the inner workings of engines will lessen new mechanics’ reliance on computers. “We had a Boy Scout troop come through the museum and they seemed to really like it,” Burgoyne said. “I believe they are going to schedule another tour.” Burgoyne said he looks forward to visitors coming to the museum because it gives him an excuse to fire up some of the engines. His passion for the engines is evident and his wealth of knowledge about the history of his engines specifically and early engines in general is a resource just waiting to be tapped. Visits must be scheduled – to do that, call Burgoyne at 817-401-0320.

Information obtained during that investigation led investigators to believe the drugs were being distributed from a location in Sansom Park as well as in Two suspects remain at large and the Weatherford-Parker County Pelican Bay.

by carla noah stutsman The Azle High School Indoor Drumline will reveal its highly anticipated 2015 competition show, Up in the Air, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29, in the main gym at the school. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students.

Wildfire Training Azle native and longtime firefighter Eddy Wood served as an instructor for the second annual North Texas Wildfire Academy sponsored by Tarrant County College Fire Service Training Center and Texas A&M Forest Service. About 80 firefighters – some from as far away as Canada – participated in classroom and field training to learn to fight fire without water. Firefighters with all levels of experience learned the use of specific hand tools as well as techniques like burnouts to remove fuel. Hands-on training was conducted Jan. 16 at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. On Jan. 18, live fire training was conducted in a large hayfield and tank on Boyd Road, just below and west of the bridge across Walnut Creek. Photos by Carla Noah Stutsman

Springtown man dies in motorcycle mishap by carla noah stutsman A Springtown man has died as a result of injuries he suffered early Saturday morning, Jan. 17, when he was thrown from a motorcycle just east of Azle. Michael Clay Clark, 33, died at 6:13 p.m. the following day, Sunday, Jan. 18, in the operating room of a Fort Worth hospital. His death was caused by blunt force trauma to the head, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner. The accident occurred in the

2000 block of Jacksboro Highway, east of the Azle city limits near Western Center Boulevard. The Azle Police Department is investigating the accident because of its proximity to the location. According to Detective Sgt. Kevin Rogers of the Azle PD, there were no witnesses to the actual accident; a passing motorist reported it but did not see what happened. When Azle officers arrived, they located Clark in a bar

ditch on the north side of the highway. “It appears Mr. Clark was westbound near Western Center when he may have hit a curb and was thrown from his bike,” Rogers said. Clark was transported to a Intent on reducing speed violators on county roads, (l-r) Precinct One Constable Fort Worth hospital where he Larry Nix, Commissioner George Conley, and Deputy Constable Charlie Hunt obwas receiving treatment at the tained two radar units and two mobile data computers for the Constables’ vehicles.

Varsity, JV Winterguard preview new shows Friday by carla noah stutsman The Azle High School Varsity and Junior Varsity Winterguards will preview their 2015 competition shows in the main AHS gym at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 23, in a free show for the public. Both groups will compete the following morning in their first North Texas Colorguard Association (NTCA) competition of the season at Birdville Coliseum. The varsity Winterguard’s show is called Find Yourself, but directors Debra Oldroyd and Karen St. Valentine were

reticent to provide details. “I just have to say come see it to find out what it’s all about,” Oldroyd laughed, hinting at something spectacular. Likewise, the JV Winterguard’s show, What Goes Around Comes Around, is equally promising, she added. Merchandise, including tshirts and concession items, will be available for purchase at the preview, but there is no admission charge. The AHS Varsity Winterguard competes in the National A classification, and will represent

Azle at the Winterguard International World Championships April 16-17 in Dayton, Ohio. The NTCA Regional A Class Champion AHS JV Winterguard will also compete locally and around the region this year. “These students are doing well and working really hard because they want to bring it home,” Oldroyd said. Those who’d like to follow the AHS Winterguard online can check periodically at ntcaonline.com. You can also get competition results from Dayton at wgi.org.

from the Lake Worth area since his vehicle was equipped with radar. “When you’re driving 87 in a 60 mph zone, you’re going to get pulled over,” Hunt said. “We want to give people a break, but sometimes they don’t give us much to work with.” The MDCs will allow the constables to run license plates to check for stolen vehicles, check drivers’ licenses and criminal records, and receive automated calls for service – all from their vehicle without going through a dispatcher. As for the cost of the new equipment, Precinct One taxpayers got a great deal, too. The county purchased four MDCs and three radar units and got a fourth radar unit free. The cost for each MDC was discounted because of a delay in delivery. Because Conley brokered the deal, Precinct One received the free radar unit making it the only Parker County precinct with two. Total cost allocated to Precinct One was $10,500, Conley said, and included the equipment, installation, air cards and licensing. “I think it will slow people down and save some lives,” Conley said. “And I think there’ll be more people happy than mad.”

This is all about safety and not about revenue,” he said. As they go about their daily business – serving papers to residents within Precinct One – the radar units will be on, however. The units can detect speeds, whether a vehicle is traveling the same direction as the constable or coming toward it. “We won’t be writing a lot of tickets at first,” Nix said. “In fact, for the first 30 days, we will mostly issue warnings and let people get used to the idea that we’re out there.” But don’t be fooled. Blatant violators will be dealt with accordingly. Hunt has already recovered a motorcycle that was stolen

by carla noah stutsman Parker County Precinct One Constable Larry Nix knows some people will be mighty upset to learn that his vehicle and that of Deputy Constable Charlie Hunt are now equipped with radar. “But there are plenty of people who are going to be really happy about it, too,” Nix says. Nix, Hunt, and Precinct One Commissioner George Conley gathered in the parking lot of the Parker County SubCourthouse in Springtown to show off the newly-installed speed-detecting gadgets, along with mobile data computers (MDCs). Conley said that after several years of budget limitations that made obtaining the radar and MDCs for county constables impossible, he decided to bring the request before Commissioners Court this year. It passed. In fact, Precinct 4 Constable Scott Jones, and Joe Harris, Constable Precinct 2, each now have a vehicle equipped with radar and an MDC. Precinct 3 Constable Glen Praytor opted not to participate. “I got so many complaints about traffic on these county roads – these back roads – I knew we had to do something,” Conley said. “The population in this county is projected to double in the next 15 years, but

NEWS DIGEST Red Solo Cup fundraiser Jan. 24

Amber Ott Jenkins, left, and her sister, Annie Ott Siharath, have many happy memories of their late dad, Lt. Norman Ott. Jenkins is event lead for the 2015 Azle Relay For Life.

Azle Relay For Life gears up to fight cancer by carla noah stutsman Amber Ott Jenkins hates cancer with a passion. It stole her father from her when she was just 19 years old. “He wasn’t able to walk me or my sister down the aisle, and he never got to meet his grandchildren,” Jenkins says. “There are so many milestones he never saw because he fought cancer.” Her father was Lt. Norman Ott, beloved Azle police and DARE Officer who even served as Interim Azle Police Chief for a time. That vibrant, active officer and father fought valiantly, and his daughter insists it’s a battle he didn’t lose. “I refuse to let cancer win anything, ever,” Jenkins said. That’s the same attitude her friend Brandi Dickey had. Although Dickey died in October 2014 of melanoma, the 33-year-old never stopped battling, and her family and friends have vowed to continue that fight. That’s why Jenkins stepped up to become event lead for Azle Relay For Life. The event, benefiting the

American Cancer Society, is slated for 6 p.m.-midnight Friday, April 24 at Central Park, 263 West Main Street. This year’s theme is Carnival for a Cure. A kickoff event is set for Thursday, Jan. 29, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Azle, 1017 Boyd Road. “Cancer affects us all – it seems we all have friends or family who barely started their lives and never got a chance,” Jenkins said. “After losing Brandi, I decided enough was enough and joined Azle Relay For Life. It’s an amazing group of people who all have stories of friends, family, and loved ones they fight for.” “We are all there for one reason and that’s to fight back for the hope of a cure,” she continued. “Azle’s Relay will be a night of celebration for those who are survivors, those currently fighting and for those we’ve lost. I choose to fight so others won’t have to endure the pain of cancer.” To sign up or get further information, contact Jenkins at amber041380@gmail.com or 817944-3295.

Betty Horton of U.S. Health Advisors encourages beginning the New Year by making a plan to succeed – be SMART: specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timelimited.

Resolve smart in 2015 Many people start the New Year bursting with energy, inspired by the promise of a fresh new year and making resolutions that somehow get lost along the way. Making and keeping commitments to improving our health, our finances, and our relationships is a terrific idea. With that in mind, here are some helpful tips to help you set and achieve your goals. Set goals that are realistic and measurable. It would be unhealthy and impossible to lose 50 pounds in one week through non-surgical methods. According to the Mayo Clinic, to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week, you need to burn 500 to 1,000 calories more than you consume each day, through a lower calorie diet and regular exercise. Make sure that your goals are SMART: specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-limited. Look for small wins as incremental measures to reach your overall goal. The Harvard Business Review article Small Wins and Feeling Good states that “breaking such problems down into a series of more modest steps, all on the path to the ultimate goal, reduces fear, clarifies direction, and increases the probability of early successful outcomes – boosting support for further action.” Enjoy your successes. Celebrate milestones along the way. Do your research. Chances are someone else has successfully accomplished a goal similar to yours. That person may have some valuable ideas that can help you keep your resolution.

Make it visual. Write keywords or notes of encouragement on Post-it notes, or draw or collect images of your goal and put these visual reminders somewhere where you can see them often. Invite supportive family members and friends to help you keep on track. Quitting smoking? Find others who are doing the same thing. Want to start exercising? It’s more fun to workout with a friend. Take time to de-stress. Take a walk, spend time with your pets, get more sleep, exercise, meditate, practice yoga or attend religious services. Stress can derail our plans and cause us to pick up the very habits we are trying to get rid of. Plan for the bumps in the road. According to the University of Scranton, Journal of Clinical Psychology, 36% of people abandon resolutions after the first month and 54% after 6 months. Set strategies to help you get past prime “quitting time” and keep moving forward toward your goal. If you do get sidetracked, all is not lost. Forgive yourself and get back with the program. It’s not about perfection; it’s about ultimately achieving your goal. You have the power to make positive change in your life. This year, resolve smart and enjoy your newfound success in 2015!

THAZ adds new doctor

Azle Police Blotter Officers with the Azle Police Department arrested the following individuals during the two-week period of Jan. 4-17: • Ivan Robles, 22, of Azle, was arrested Jan. 8 in the 600 block of Alameda Road and charged with injury to a child/ elderly/disabled, a third-degree felony. He was transferred to the Tarrant County jail, where he remains in lieu of $15,000 bond. • Daniel Maze, 37, of Azle, was arrested Jan. 10 in the 500 block of Commerce Street and charged with driving while intoxicated, his second DWI. He posted $7,500 bond and was released from the Azle jail. • Casey Joe Rice, 28, of Paradise, was arrested in the 11500 block of Jacksboro Highway near Hanger Cutoff Road Jan. 14

Ivan Robles and charged with driving while intoxicated and unlawfully carrying a weapon. Dispatchers received multiple 911 calls shortly before midnight reporting a vehicle traveling east in the westbound lanes of Highway 199. The first callers reported the vehicle west of Azle; by the

time police caught up to him, Rice was east of Azle. The officer observed Rice – who was now in the correct lane – swerving between lanes, crossing lane markers, and initiated a traffic stop. Rice was subsequently arrested for DWI and the weapons charge. He posted $3,500 bond for the DWI charge and $5,000 for the weapon charge and was released from the Azle jail the following day. • Sean Gary Mills, 35, no address listed, was arrested in the 1000 block of Gladstone Avenue Jan. 15 and charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony, a first-degree felony. He was transferred to the Tarrant County jail, where he remains in lieu of $25,000 bond.

Sean Gary Mills Azle officers arrested 18 additional individuals for outstanding warrants issued by various law enforcement agencies during the same time frame. They wrote three citations for public intoxication and three for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Texas Health Azle has a new doctor. The hospital welcomed Kanayochukwu “Kanny” Aluka, M.D., FACS, to its medical staff as general surgery and wound care services medical director. She is a fellowship-trained general surgeon whose areas of focus are advanced laparoscopy, breast pathology, and wound care procedures. According to Dr. Aluka, deciding on a career in general surgery was a great fit: “Helping people restore health and wellness in their lives is something I take great pride in doing.” Despite growing up in Houston, Dr. Aluka admits to enjoying working in small towns. “I really like getting to know my patients. Aside from being able to physically help make a dif-

Dr. Kanayochukwu “Kanny” Aluka ference in their lives, the strong sense of community is very gratifying.” Dr. Aluka graduated from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. She completed her residency training at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C.

Hornets champions of Aledo tournament Azle, undefeated, wins both tourneys this season by mark k. campbell Another tournament, another title. The latest addition to the Azle High School trophy case was claimed by the Hornet soccer varsity with a victory in an Aledo tourney. In sunny January weather, AHS (8-0) did not permit a goal, winning three matches. That’s a tribute to keeper Austin McCash and the backline in front of him – Ben Davis, Mason Mendell, Grant Mendell, and Giovanni Rios. After starting with a 4-0 thumping of Burleson, Azle broke open a 0-0 contest at halftime and beat the hosts 4-0, too. In that contest, Dylan Tritton turned in a hat trick, scoring a trio of goals. Nathan Mejia got the other one. The Hornets won the championship trophy with a 2-0 blanking of Crowley. No All-Tournament Team was picked but a Most Valuable Player was. That honor went to Hornet Javier Mejia. The Most Valuable Player of the Aledo tournament, Azle’s Javier Mejia (15), is about to fire a shot past an Aledo The victories kept Azle unBearcat.

College Signees

Surrounded by her Azle teammates, Lady Hornet Sarah Brown signs a letter of intent to play softball for Seminole State College in Oklahoma.

Azle’s Trevor Boiles inks to play baseball at North Central Texas College. With him are Juliann Boiles (seated) and (back, l-r) Ronnie Boiles, Stacey Boiles, AHS Coach Anthony Barron, and NCTC Coach Scott Harp.

Rider tops Azle A trip to Wichita Falls to face Rider was a tough one for the Hornet hoops squad. With scoring and turnover woes, Azle lost 77-28 in the 5-5A clash. Rider, state ranked at No. 23 in 5A, rushed out to a 20-3 first quarter lead and did not look back. AHS shot just 26 percent while the Raiders nailed 60 percent of its field goals and 7 more 3-pointers. Azle shot just 5 free throws, making 1. Bowen Moyer led the Hornets with 8 points. Jamie King and Trey Ramos added 6 each. Fred Amyett blocked a shot for Azle. Next up is a trip to Saginaw Jan. 23.

Coach Ben Buentello is proud of but cautious of at the same time. “I told our players that it is a great start to the year, and it does give us confidence heading into district play. “But I also explained to them that the ultimate goal is to make it to the ‘big tournament’ at the end of the year,” the coach said. That’s the state event, set for Georgetown April 15-18. There’s something else about being successful, Buentello noted: “Success is two-fold because it puts a target on their backs and every team we face from now on will throw everything they have at us. “We have to be ready for that.” The Lady Hornets also played in Aledo. Azle opened with a 3-0 loss to Fort Worth South Hills. The next day, AHS scored early and put away Dumas. That sent the Lady Hornets to the third place match, but Azle tumbled. Next up for all squads is District 5-5A opening matches against Boswell Jan. 27.

Hoops girls end first round of 5-5A second A 46-22 victory over Brewer Jan. 13 set up a battle between two state-ranked girls basketball teams at Wichita Falls Jan. 16. Against Brewer Jan. 13, Payton Berger led with 15 points and 7 rebounds; Taylor Fulfer scored 14. That home win made the final game of first round of 5-5A play for first place against then No. 9 Rider. The game was close – 10-8 – after one period. But the hosts pulled away and won 52-41. The defeat dropped Azle into a tie with Saginaw for second in district but did not hamper AHS’ Texas Association of Basketball Coaches state ranking which stayed a 16. Berger led Azle again at Rider, with 19 points while Valarie Matlock added 11. Kylee Brown’s 9 rebounds paced the team. Subvarsities – The JV beat Brewer 45-23 behind 10 points from Rachel Wood. Next, the AHS JV fell to Rider 45-42 as Cassidy Bowen scored 10 and Breeona Cannon

Wrestlers pin down more mat victories Azle competes in Vernon The Azle High School wrestling teams ventured northwest to compete in the Red River Tournament in Vernon. The Lady Hornets finished as runner-ups in the team competition, beating out 10 other squads. Six AHS girls placed. The boys finished fourth out of 18 teams with six Hornets placing. The girls were led by a pair of gold medal winners – Lauren Dale at 136 pounds and Hali Davis at 110. Veteran Ruby Ariosa (102) took a silver at Vernon while Denise Perez finished third. Also placing were Hollie Taylor and Raelyn Temple, both fourth. Six Hornets picked up points at the event. Lady Hornet wrestler Haley Taylor and the Azle squads will compete for district titles Heavyweight Justin Scarbro Feb. 6 after Senior Night at the AHS gym Jan. 22. Photo by Mark K. Campbell won his division.

Marshall Gilbreath (195) finished second, losing his first match of 2015, Azle Coach Chris Allen recalled. Jimmy Fager (113) also earned a silver medal. Colten Clearwater (152) took third. Also pointing were Tyler Stewart, fourth at 160, and Seth Bell, sixth a 182. Azle hosts a tri-dual Thursday, Jan. 22 on Senior Night. Then comes a break before the district event Feb. 6 at Saginaw Chisholm Trail HS. That stay-home stretch between the final regular season competition and district is planned, Allen said. Aside from letting injuries heal somewhat, his young squad will be vying for team berths. “We’ll have a lot of wrestle-offs,” Allen said.

4 Snapshot 2

5 Snapshot Snapshot Matthew Frost National Sales & Marketing Manager I ve been asked a few times lately why the Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series is featured so much in ARB s marketing. The simple reason is it s by far the vehicle our customers are most interested in. Whenever we feature a photograph, video or story on a 70, the level of engagement we get dwarfs any other vehicle. When you consider that the 70 Series platform has been around since the mid- 1980s, it s quite interesting that it still commands so much attention. Sure, the vehicle has received a number of upgrades and enhancements over the years, but if you parked a new 70 Series next to one that was 30 years old, you d see that it s pretty much the same vehicle. The mainstream media is fascinated by vehicles that feature sophisticated technology, with autonomous cars in particular attracting a great deal of attention. We know, however, that based on the hundreds of thousands of people that engage with ARB on social media, Australian 4WDers have absolutely no interest in selfdriving cars whatsoever. Our customers enjoy driving and, as the 70 Series example proves, capable and functional 4x4s that require a level of skill to make them optimally perform still attract the most interest. However, as of last month, ARB officially has a new number one vehicle on social media! Posts on this vehicle across Facebook, Instagram and YouTube have received enormous attention, with customer engagement reaching an all-time high. You re probably thinking it s a next generation dualcab 4x4 or wagon Nope, it s a Suzuki. ARB partnered with Suzuki Australia to build the Suzuki Jimny JBOX and the interest in this vehicle has been overwhelming. JBOX was the vision of Suzuki Australia General Manager, Michael Pachota. Michael knew that the 2019 Jimny was always going to be enormously appealing to 4WDers but was keen to step things up a notch and demonstrate what a sensational platform the vehicle will make for people wanting to customise it for aggressive off road conditions. ARB equipped JBOX with a bull bar, driving lights, rock sliders and Old Man Emu suspension, launching it on social media in February. We were inundated with interest and positive commentary around the vehicle. The new Jimny is a value-for-money, simply designed 4WD with enormous off road capability. The Range Rover, launched in the mid-1970s, proved that a live axle/coil spring combination is the most capable off road vehicle configuration and this was later implemented into 4x4s such as the Nissan Patrol and Toyota LandCruiser. 4WDs have moved away from live axles in recent years in favour of independent suspension, which many believe compromises off road ability. The Jimny, however, has adopted a proven, reliable and capable platform that really lends itself to enhancements. Air Lockers, mud tyres and long-travel after-market suspension can easily be fitted to the Jimny, taking it from a competent 4x4 to immensely capable machine. Of course, the Jimny s size will limit its market but its immense worldwide popularity has already led to speculation regarding other variants of the platform. The hype around the Jimny reinforces what many of us have known for ages. Capability, simplicity and character are features 4WDers are looking for. The vehicle exudes the latter, adopting a unique design that shuns the general trend vehicle manufacturers are opting for these days. With already a six-month waiting list for one, Suzuki has clearly nailed it and we look forward to seeing Jimnys out on the tracks. With bar work, suspension, Air Lockers, under vehicle protection and a host of other gear in development for the Jimny, I have no idea when I m going to get ARB s vehicle off our engineers, but it is undoubtedly the vehicle I am most excited about heading bush in this year.

6 What s New What's New When hitting the tracks with your family, safety is always top of mind. Whether it s keeping the kids away from the campfire, making sure the caravan stove isn t left on or even ensuring you re not too sleepy-eyed trying to get your Jetboil going and your first shot of caffeine running through your veins. While fire safety is always practised, having a suitable fire extinguisher close by is not always practical. Introducing the Firestryker TM, exclusive to ARB. This fire suppression system has remarkable extinguishing capabilities and extinguishes for eight times longer than a 1.5 kilogram fire extinguisher. This small, lightweight cylinder is made up of two parts. The upper section is a metal tube that contains the extinguishing charge and the lower plastic part acts as a support handle. Upon striking, the Firestryker TM will produce a potassium aerosol jet that will last for approximately 100 seconds. Firestryker Thoroughly tested for use, it is suitable for class A, B, C, F and K fires and also electrical fires of up to 100kv (refer to fire testing table). Simple to maintain, the Firestryker TM requires no servicing, refilling, checks or maintenance and will not suffer the effects of compacting from being stored in a 4WD for extended periods of time. The Firestryker TM is environmentally friendly, can be recycled after use and comes with a three-year warranty. It s a simple and easy way to ensure that you and your family are always protected in the event of an unexpected fire. Part Number: FFS199SEC Specs: 328mm x 33mm 365g RRP: $ Fire Testing Classes The Firestryker TM is suitable for the majority of fires you may come across when touring, camping or boating.

9 Outback Solutions Drawers Roll Out A new addition to the ARB Outback Solutions cargo drawer range further enhances the modular system s versatility and custom-fit capability. The new Mid-Height Roller Floor offers the convenience of the Low-Height Roller Floor for easy access to a portable fridge but with the storage benefits of a drawer offering an extra 30mm of depth. The new Mid-Height Roller Floor has a handy drawer depth of 105mm, which is enough to accommodate a variety of ARB accessories such as an inflation case, a first aid kit and recovery straps. Yet it s significantly lower in overall height than a full depth Roller Drawer/ Roller Floor, which has a 215mm depth. Like other components in the ARB Outback Solutions modular range, the new Mid-Height Roller Floor is available in 945mm, 1,045mm and 1,355mm lengths to suit a variety of vehicles including 4WD wagons and utes. It is also compatible with the existing range of full-height drawers and is supplied with a single carpeted side panel for a neat finish when required. The ARB Outback Solutions range has been ADR crash tested and certified, and the modular drawer systems are manufactured with a galvanised steel chassis and use stainless components. The drawers are finished in a commercial grade UV-resistant marine carpet. Despite their robust construction, ARB Outback Solutions drawers are lighter than many competitor products, allowing more equipment to be safely and securely carried in the back of a vehicle. The new Mid-Height Roller Floor weighs between 26kg and 32kg depending on length and is rated to carry up to 75kg when extended, with a maximum load of 100kg. Convenient features include an anti-rollback system that locks the Mid-Height Roller Floor in its open position to prevent unintentional closing, an anti-rattle locking mechanism to eliminate movement when closed, slam-shut latches for easy operation even when hands are full, sealed dust- and water-resistant bearings and aluminium runners for smooth and durable operation. Being a modular system, owners can pick and choose which ARB Outback Solutions components will best suit their requirements, allowing them to tailor a setup to perfectly match their vehicle. The new Mid-Height Roller Floor can be mounted where desired and combined with various other ARB Outback Solutions components. There are vehicle-specific floor kits for a professional finish and these incorporate bracing to handle heavy loads and prevent flex. The floor kit panels are manufactured from construction grade ply and finished in matching UV-resistant marine carpet. Part Number: RFH945 - RRP: $ Part Number: RFH RRP: $ Part Number: RFH RRP: $

10 NT Travel OUTBACK EXPERIENCE Part I Words by Jessica Vigar Photography by Offroad Images Driving to Wombunji Station 8

11 NT Travel Our dual-cab 79 Series LandCruiser slowly rolls to a stop. In front of us, three men clad head to toe in camoufl age climb out of their chop top 100 Series. We watch in silence as they unload rifles from the vehicle. The UHF crackles and a whispered instruction fills the otherwise dead-silent cab. Send the photographer. Michael Ellem from Offroad Images casts a nervous glance over his shoulder as he quietly gets out of our truck. We watch as he makes his way through the dense undergrowth and creeps down the hill and out of sight, following the freshly made tracks of the three hunters waiting by the edge of a creek. We wait in silence for what seems like an age. Suddenly, a gunshot rips through the silence. After a few moments, three more bangs explode in quick succession out of the bush. We don t move, waiting for an instruction of all clear. A canon-like gunshot, the loudest one yet, rolls over the hill. All clear. Karl s voice can be heard over the UHF. We start up the 4WD and begin manoeuvring through the thick tree line, apprehensive of what is waiting for us over the ridge. 9

12 NT Travel PEERING THROUGH THE RUNGS, WE SEE A SHIRTLESS, TATTOOED HULK OF A MAN WRESTLING A PACK OF MASSIVE DOGS INTO A PEN. Hunting Bufallo PREPPING TO SHOOT Two days earlier, the view through our windscreen was significantly different. My husband, Glenn, and I had picked up a PXII Ford Ranger from ARB Darwin, prepped with everything we d need for our trip into the wild west country of the outback Northern Territory. After spending the weekend shopping for props and supplies around town (we were keen to use the unique and wild scenery to sneak in some product photoshoots), we got to bed early, knowing we had a big week ahead of us. Michael Ellem from Offroad Images had spent his weekend proudly showing off his mighty 79 LandCruiser at the Eastern Creek Show and had jumped on a late-night flight to Darwin as soon as it had finished. Early Monday morning, we meet at the Ford Ranger and head out to Howard Springs, the temperature already pushing 38 C and signalling the coming wet season up north. We make a quick pit stop at BCF on the way so Mike can purchase a butane can for his Bialetti set-up (for those of you who haven t spent an extended period of time in the company of our photographer, he really likes his coffee). Driving through the rural suburban sprawl of Howard Springs, we arrive at a large gated property with a Goodhand Outback Experience laser-cut steel sign nailed to the front. Peering through the rungs, we see a shirtless, tattooed hulk of a man wrestling a pack of massive dogs into a pen. He waves at us as he jogs over to open the gate and let us in, introducing himself as Karl, owner of Goodhand Outback Experience. As the gate opens, we are greeted by Mangels (affectionately named after the famous adventurer Alby Mangels), a mastiff the size of a small horse. I ve still got some things to do, Karl says, pointing to the front door of his home. Go inside and check out the animals. Mike and I share a quizzical glance as we step out of the stifling heat and into the respite of Karl s air conditioned home. As we round the corner into the open plan living room, we grasp the meaning of animals. Surrounding us is the most astounding collection of hunting trophies I have ever seen. A mountain lion peers down at us from a rock mounted high on the wall; at the end of the hall, a hippo yawns wide and two giant buffaloes gaze across the lounge suite to where we are standing. Deer, banteng and crocodile skulls are proudly displayed around the room. Mangels lumbers in and heavily collapses on the cold tiles, undeterred by the countless animals staring down at him. 10

13 NT Travel Spring fed waterfall at camp a hippo yawns wide and two giant buffaloes gaze across the lounge suite CATTLE, CREEK CROSSINGS & CAMP After Karl has finished packing up his gear and preparing his property for his week-long absence, we head out towards his camp. Mike is with Karl, driving in his very impressive 79 Series luxury Cruiser (check out Karl s rig on page 15 for the details of this ultimate truck). Glenn and I follow in our Ranger. We drive out to Pine Creek to fill up both our fourbies and our bellies at the everdelicious Lazy Lizard Tavern. The drive out to Karl s camp takes around three hours and involves several creek crossings, plenty of rutted bull dust and unique and constantly changing scenery. About a third of the way, we reach the picturesque Daly River, a decent water crossing that laps the grille of our car as we carefully drive its concrete base. After passing through a number of gates, we reach a sign signalling that we are entering Wombunji Station, a cattle station owned by a good friend of Karl s. During our drive, the Ranger s temperature gauge has been steadily displaying 39 C outside. All of a sudden, I notice the numbers start to drop. As the reading displays 24 C, we start thinking there must be some sort of electrical fault; that is, until the heavens open and we drive through a couple of hundred metres of heavy rainfall. Just as quickly as it began, it stops and the temperature steadily rises back to 39 C. Karl s voice crackles over the UHF, informing us that this is rare and somewhat worrying. He recounts a story from two years earlier where they barely had a drop of rain at camp; however, a lot of rain in other areas meant the Daly River had risen exponentially. Karl, not realising until he actually got to the river on his way out of camp, spent two days stranded before being picked up by helicopter, returning with Hunting vehicles Goodhand guide Richie 11

14 NT Travel his boat to try to get his three dogs and the rest of his crew out. Struggling to launch his boat and swimming in croc-infested waters was not an experience he was keen to relive. Chasing Buffalo As we near camp, we cross some dry creek beds. Snaking out of sight, the smooth black rock of the river gives the area a prehistoric feel. Turning a final corner, we park in front of a large green and silver structure, the kitchen and dining room/bar. To the left are two tents and a large table surrounded by salt and skulls. To the right, a long track leads to a number of huts and buildings. We are greeted by the beautiful smiling face of Emma, the resident chef, emerging from the kitchen. At the time, we had no idea the gastronomical delights soon to be served up to us by this accomplished woman. Later in our stay, we would learn of Emma s impressive résumé. From cooking for a billionaire on a super yacht whilst sailing through Greece (her most notable guest on the yacht being none other than Bill Gates) to preparing culinary feasts whilst working in a chalet on the Route Blanche of Chamonix, France, she was trained in one of Gordon Ramsay s STRUGGLING TO LAUNCH HIS BOAT AND SWIMMING IN CROC-INFESTED WATERS WAS NOT AN EXPERIENCE HE WAS KEEN TO RELIVE. Goodhand Camp 12

15 NT Travel Goodhand Guide Pete having to fight greedy water monitors that surprise her in the kitchen many restaurants. This is Emma s first season working for Karl and she assures us that she will definitely be returning next year. It takes a very unique personality to be able to survive out in the middle of the nowhere, sometimes alone for days at a time whilst the rest of the crew are out chasing animals. Apart from having to fight greedy water monitors that surprise her in the kitchen while she s trying to work, Emma says she likes being alone and having Foxtel and wi-fi at camp certainly makes it a lot easier. Karl offers us a drink from the bar while Emma serves up a platter of cheeses, crackers and nuts. The rest of the crew are out with a client and as we wait for their return, Karl gives us a bit of history of the camp and his set-up. Karl says he really started getting serious about guiding hunts in In 2007, he separated from his then business partner and founded Goodhand Outback Experience. With a background and degree in Network Engineering and Computer Science, Karl combined his love for hunting and savvy tech skills to start filming and editing DVDs. In 2007, he started blowing up in the Chinese market, raising around six million dollars to put together a set of DVDs that resulted in raising tourism to the Northern Territory by 70 per cent. It was the biggest show on prime time TV in China for eight years running and advertisement space was selling for US$1,000 a second during his segments. The property Karl has this camp set up on is around 1.2 million acres in size and he says they only really hunt on about five per cent of it. As the light of the day begins to fade, a chop top 100 Series LandCruiser pulls up to camp and three very sweaty, dirty, tired hunters climb out. Pete and Richie are the two guides that have spent the day with a client, sneaking around in 40 C heat, stalking buffalo. Pete and Richie both hail from Victoria and have decades of hunting experience between them. The client, Bob, has flown all the way from Texas and whilst exhausted from both the punishing heat and terrain, he is all smiles as he recounts the adventures of the day. We all gratefully inhale the amazing dinner Emma has prepared for us and then head to bed. 13

16 NT Travel BOB BAGS HIS BUFFALO The next morning, we all meet for breakfast and then head out; Bob, Karl and Pete in the chop top and Glenn, Richie, Mike and me following close behind in a 70 Series. Driving to a number of creeks and watering holes, we stop several times after spotting buffalo in the distance. Richie explains to us that they might spend a week tracking and fi nding prize bulls before the clients arrive. They learn the patterns of the bulls movements and always have conservation of the population in mind, ensuring they leave entire areas alone for long periods of time to reduce their impact on animal activity and stress level. Karl spots a nice big bull and instructs the convoy to stop. After calling for Mike, we hear gunshots and Karl beckons us to their location over the UHF. The trees are tight and it takes some very talented manoeuvring by Richie to get us through to the group. As we pull up, we see a huge buffalo lying in the grass. Bob can t wipe the smile off his face; he d travelled over 14,000km for this moment and was visibly shaking with the adrenaline and delight. Bob had requested a European-style mounting for his trophy preparation, which Pete and Richie were very relieved with as it was pushing 40 C and this would be the quickest and easiest option. Karl explains to us that the buffalo was around 15 years old and had started to lose its chewing capacity in its teeth. A lot of bulls will grind their teeth down and eventually, will lose the ability to eat and pass away. We drive on to a nice shady spot by a creek to have lunch. Karl wanders down to the water and notices an entire buffalo carcass left from a previous hunt has been dragged under the water and stored beneath a log. A resident croc will be well fed for the next few weeks. Karl says that when the weather is not so harsh, they take their kills to the local crocodile farms; however, anything they do leave disappears very quickly, feeding the local pigs, dingoes and crocodiles. We drive back to camp, the mood amongst the entire group somewhat more relaxed and carefree. Bob got what he came for, job done, season over. Check out 4x4 Culture Issue 55 for Part II where Jessica, Glenn and Mike explore more of Karl s epic hunting set-up and continue their unforgettable outback experience.

18 ARB Jack Base BACK TO BASE 16

19 ARB has developed a new multi-purpose Jack Base designed to work in tandem with ARB s Jack, as well as standard and X-treme versions of the Hi-Lift jack, that alleviates sinkage on soft ground for safer use. Manufactured in Australia from super tough high-density polyethylene, the new Jack Base has a rated load capacity of 7,000kg (15,400lb) and is finished in a high visibility safety orange. The Jack Base is designed specifically to work in tandem with ARB s Jack and is also compatible with Hi-Lift jack models. We tested it right up to 16 tonnes and we couldn t break it, says ARB Product Manager Ben Rieson of the new Jack Base. It passed with flying colours! And it s never going to be used past 16 tonnes ever! The Jack Base has a non-slip textured base on its bottom surface for added grip when jacking in soft and slippery terrain, and the top surface is designed specifically to lock in with Jack s wide rotatable foot. The design of the top surface also holds standard and X-treme Hi-Lift jacks in place to offer a secure platform for vehicle recovery situations or when simply jacking a vehicle for other purposes. When developing the Jack Base, we thought about how we could design a platform for use not only with various jacks but also for other purposes, adds Ben Rieson. The shape of the Jack Base, along with its comfortable integrated grab handle, makes it ideally suited to use as a rake when levelling uneven terrain or even as a wheel chock or jockey wheel receiver. Other features of the Jack Base include convenient leash attachment points for easy retrieval after use as well as several vehicle mounting options. The Jack Base features holes for locking pins, so it can be mounted on a TRED Pro mounting kit or on the shaft of a Hi-Lift jack with optional mounts, says Ben Rieson. You can put your ARB TRED Pros on top of your vehicle and then you can mount the Jack Base on top of the ARB TRED Pros they all stack up and lock through the pins. Alternatively, if you have your ARB TRED Pros mounted to the spare wheel on the back of your vehicle, the Jack Base can be mounted to them using optional TRED Pro extension pins. The Jack Base is a seriously tough piece of recovery equipment and ARB backs it with a two-year warranty. Part Number: RRP: $

20 ARB Jack Base ARB Jack When ARB created Jack, it essentially reinvented the mechanical farm jack using state-of-the-art design, engineering and materials. The mechanical farm jack is a handy device that can be used for many purposes including moving vehicles out of awkward situations, lifting them out of holes to fill in the void beneath the tyres or even as a bead breaker during tyre repairs. But mechanical farm jacks are inherently unstable, so ARB s engineers came up with a better solution in the form of Jack. ARB s Jack is a long-travel hydraulic jack with an extruded aluminium body and a hardened military grade nitride shaft. It combines the functionality of a mechanical jack with the ease of use and convenience of a hydraulic jack. Jack has a 2,000kg lifting capacity, which is almost double the safe working load limit of many mechanical farm jacks. External shelves in Jack s aircraft grade extruded 6061 T6 aluminium body allow the hook to be set at various heights without using up jacking travel, so it can be tailored for use with different vehicles and conditions. Other features of Jack include a wide rotatable foot that provides a stable base and preferred orientation for use on uneven ground, an ergonomically designed handle that can be operated in confined spaces, overload protection so as not to exceed working load limit, quick and safe lowering in case of unintended side movement and a safety stop on the lowering lever to immediately cease lowering if required. Jack offers up to 500mm of lifting travel and, weighing in at 10.5kg, it s lighter than traditional mechanical farm jacks. It s also more compact when compressed with a total length of just 890mm. 18

21 Toyota HiLux Commercial Bar Toyota Trade Ready With the arrival of the Toyota HiLux Rogue in early 2018 and the facelift SR and SR5 in August, ARB s team of engineers has been busy developing a new Commercial Bar to suit. While visually the new HiLux looks similar to previous models, small changes in the front of the vehicle have required plenty of new development in the design of the bull bar. Our products are always created for vehicle-specific application and the new HiLux range was no exception. Changes to the grille and bumper assembly have required a new top pan to be developed to ensure clearance for chassis-to-body movement. Whilst retaining the necessary access points for the winch, the surface area of the top pan has been reduced and to ensure strength, the engineers have increased this material to three millimetres thick. The Commercial bar is a combination style bar so will fit both winch and non-winch applications. For customers looking to fit a winch, the Commercial bar accommodates low-mount model electric winches up to 10,000lb. The Commercial bar is designed with twin jacking points located in the lower pan and two aerial brackets on the top of the centre tube. The bar includes ARB LED indicator and clearance lights with the provision for optional ARB fog lights. Finished in a satin black powder coat, with the option to colour-code, the ARB Commercial bar provides considerable frontal protection whilst achieving cost savings through simplified manufacturing processes.

22 The Lat-Long of it BY TRIP IN A VAN THE LAT-LONG OF IT ,

23 The Lat-Long of it REGION: FRASER ISLAND TRACK GRADE: Easy through to difficult SEASON: All year round DESTINATION: A tour of the hotspots POPULAR FOR: 4WDing, fishing, camping, family holidays, backpackers and adventure tours PERMITS NEEDED: Vehicle permit and camping permits (obtained from Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS)) The world s largest sand island off the coast of Hervey Bay, Queensland, has absolutely everything you could want for an adventure holiday with your mates, your missus or your family. There are 4WD tracks, beach driving and spectacular freshwater lakes that will blow your mind. The fishing is off the hook and there are so many accommodation options to choose from with houses for rent, resorts to indulge in and campsites galore scattered around the island. 21

24 The Lat-Long of it THE TRACKS EASY: If you do your research and drive the beach at low tide, it s pretty much a sandy highway with a speed limit of 80km per hour and it s a very easy drive even for the most novice of 4WDers. Just watch out for the freshwater creeks that run into the ocean as they can cause washouts in the beach and it can be hard to see as you re cruising the beach. INTERMEDIATE: If you tackle the beach at high tide, things can get a bit tougher. The sand can be very soft, deep and chopped up by a lot of vehicle traffic. With your tyre pressures dropped and some basic recovery gear like Tred Pros and a snatch strap, you should be fine. DIFFICULT: If you re after a challenge and wish to get to some of the more remote spots around Fraser Island, then there are a few tracks that will challenge your skills. The bypass track around Ngkala Rocks can be a bit gnarly. It s a mix of soft sand and rutted coffee rock that will get your coils flexing and a bit of wheels-up action. 22

25 The Lat-Long of it FISHING CAMPING You really are spoilt for choice with accommodation options over here. If you re not set up for self-sufficient camping, you can always stay at one of the two resorts on the island located at Kingfisher Bay and Eurong Beach. You can also hire private houses and units at a range of different locations around the island. For campers, the hardest part is deciding on which zone to camp in. Grab yourself a map, pick a spot and you can book online through the QPWS website. OUR CAMPSITE PICKS Marloo Bay Sandy Cape Awinya Creek Eurong Beach Resort ICONIC FRASER ISLAND HOTSPOTS Eli Creek Lake McKenzie Champagne Pools SS Maheno shipwreck Sandy Cape HOW TO GET THERE Fraser Island is located off the coast of Hervey Bay, which is around 280 kilometres north of Brisbane, Queensland. To get your vehicle over to Fraser, you will need to put it on the Manta Ray Barge from Inskip Point or the Fraser Island Ferry from River Heads in Hervey Bay. If you re heading over in peak holiday season, then it s a good idea to book your ferry and prepay your camping fees so you don t miss out. Known as one of the best fishing locations around Oz, Fraser Island is the perfect place for everyone from the kids to even the most the serious fisho! On the eastern side of the island, just find a nice deep gutter as you re driving along the beach and you ll have a good chance of hooking a dart, whiting, flathead or tailor. On the western side, there are a few creeks to try your luck in and it s also a more protected option if the weather is a bit wild on the surf side. SUGGESTED ROUTE If it s your first time to the island, you will want explore as much as you can and see everything, right? I know we did, which is why we swagged our way around the island in a bit of a loop. Remember, Fraser is the world s largest sand island, which means just a day trip over can be pretty full on! If you don t want to spend hours on end doing return trips along the same stretch of beach, it s best to plan a few campsites up the east coast to Sandy Cape and then a few spots on the west coast on your way back down. 23

26 ARB Awning & Light Kit Bright Idea 24

27 ARB Awning & Light Kit Shade when it s sunny and light when it gets dark. ARB s new awning and light kit gives you the best of both worlds. Just like at home, good quality lighting is in the ceiling and not the walls, ensuring the area is well lit from above and not in your eyes. The ARB awning and light kit incorporates an aluminium extruded LED light strip in the awning roof, giving you bright light when the sun goes down. The slim dimension and clever location of the light strip simplifies pack-up. The light doesn t need to be removed and can be rolled up with the awning, keeping everything together for your next adventure. The LED chips utilised in the light strip handle more heat than a standard strip light and are attached to an aluminium track for heat dissipation and sealed in a watertight resin. The awning light provides up to 1,200 lumens with a choice of either cool white or amber colour mode and is dimmable via a waterproof digital dimmer switch. Amber mode provides low bug attractant qualities and a comfortable late-night soft lighting with a current draw of one amp per hour. Powered by a fused cigarette lighter plug, the awning light comes with four additional metres of insulated waterproof cable and connectors, meaning it can be mounted to either side of your vehicle. Included in the kit is a handy storage bag for your cables when the awning is packed up and the light is not in use. ARB Awning Easy to mount and operate, the ARB retractable awnings fit onto the side of most roof racks or roof bars and store neatly in a PVC bag or sturdy aluminium case for immediate use on arrival. Specifically designed for harsh off road conditions and coming complete with hardware and comprehensive instructions, each awning is rugged yet lightweight and will provide fast, convenient shade and protection from the elements. Features: - 300gsm awning roof material heavy-duty, treated to be mould proof and one of the highest UV protection ratings in its class - 1,000mm waterproof rating - 25mm aluminium poles and arms at 1.2mm wall thickness for superior strength - 1,000D PVC carry bag - Welded and heat-taped seams - Light with dimmer AWNING AND LIGHT KIT 2,500mm x 2,500mm Part Number: RRP: $ AWNING AND LIGHT KIT 2,000mm x 2,500mm Part Number: RRP: $ ALUMINIUM CASE AWNING AND LIGHT KIT 2,500mm x 2,500mm Part Number: RRP: $

28 Suzuki Jimny Jimny Lands Down Under One of the most hotly anticipated new 4x4 vehicle launches of the year, the new Suzuki Jimny, has finally landed in Australia and fans of the pint-sized off roader won t be disappointed. The new Jimny is offered in one trim level at $23,990 for the five-speed manual variant and $25,990 for the four-speed auto. The Jimny stays true to its roots, retaining an old-school separate body-on-chassis architecture and live axles front and rear with coil springs. It also sticks with a familiar four-cylinder petrol engine, although capacity is up to 1.5 litres from the previous generation s 1.3 litres. While peak power and torque outputs are modest the 1.5-litre engine claims 75kW of power at 6,000rpm and 130Nm of torque at 4,000rpm the Jimny only weighs 1,075kg (+15kg in auto guise), so on road performance should be better than you d expect. Both manual and automatic variants feature a part-time 4WD system with a two-speed transfer case, which Suzuki now calls Allgrip Pro 4WD. In 2H, drive is directed to the rear wheels while 4H can be selected on the fly at speeds of up to 100km/h. The Jimny must be stationary to select 4L. 26

31 Suzuki Jimny Thanks to its low-range gearing and traction control system, the Jimny offers genuine off road capability. And as you d expect of a vehicle with such short overhangs, approach and departure angles are impressive at 37 and 49 respectively, while ramp-over angle is 28 and there s a handy 210mm of ground clearance with the standard suspension and 195/80R15 tyres fitted. Other off road armament includes Hill Descent Control and Hill Hold Control. Suzuki has beefed up the Jimny s chassis, adding two extra cross members and a central X member, which results in greater torsional rigidity for better off road performance and improved safety. The new Jimny comes standard with active safety features including lane departure warning, six airbags, high beam assist, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), reversing camera and LED headlights. There s no doubt that the new Jimny is still an exceptionally small vehicle, with a 2,250mm wheelbase, an overall length of just 3,645mm, a width of 1,645mm and a height of 1,705mm, but the cabin is larger compared with the previous model, now boasting a modest 377 litres of cargo space with the rear seats folded down (up by 53 litres). Standard equipment on the new Jimny includes climate control air conditioning, cruise control, a seven-inch multimedia system with satnav, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and Bluetooth connectivity, and privacy glass. The new Jimny has a combined fuel consumption figure of 6.8L/100k, which gives a safe touring range of around 550km from the standard 40-litre fuel tank. ARB EQUIPMENT Suzuki enlisted the help of ARB to produce a static display of a kitted-out Jimny called Project JBOX for the Australian media launch of the vehicle. Project JBOX offers a glimpse of the accessories ARB is working on for Jimny and for display purposes it was fitted with an ARB bull bar, Warn 8,000lb winch, ARB rock sliders, ARB roof rack, OME suspension and 235/75R15 BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2 tyres. Suzuki 'Project JBOX' vehicle shown with protoype products While ARB has been hard at work fitting these accessories to Project JBOX, the engineering teams still have plenty of development work ahead of them to develop a complete range of accessories to suit the new 2019 Suzuki Jimny. 29

32 Suzuki Jimny The bull bar fitted to Project JBOX is essentially a small version of a Summit bar, explains ARB Product Manager Steve Sampson. The vehicle only arrived at ARB a week or so prior to Christmas so the bull bar was probably put together in two weeks. It has a lot of the Summit bar features like the grille and the split pan, but it doesn t have the buffers because there s not the physical space to fit them in there. The cover straps and tube work are based on the Summit bar, but we ve had to take out some features because they don t work on this particular vehicle. It s got a recessed winch control mount for an 8,000lb Warn winch, which is plenty of capacity as the vehicle weighs next to nothing, continues Steve. ARB also fitted a set of rock sliders to Project JBOX as well as an existing roof rack. It s a standard rack and standard foot kit, but we re going to develop a modelspecific foot kit. The OME suspension system fitted to Project JBOX will also undergo much more development work before it s released to the public. From a suspension point of view, we built a vehicle to be put on static display for Suzuki, explains OME Lead Engineer Stuart Fooks. This used off-the-shelf springs and shock absorbers that achieved the ride height targets we were looking for but, at this stage, we still haven t driven the vehicle. While the current springs and shock absorbers fit, our intention is to develop a new suspension system for the 2019 Jimny, continues Stuart. To do this, we need to refine damper lengths and look at the amount of travel we can get out of the vehicle, and the amount of lift, and we need to consider castor correction, brake line lengths and various other factors. While the existing suspension components physically fit the new vehicle, what we d like to do is develop some new dampers using our standard Nitrocharger Sport architecture, which has a 35mm piston and shock bore. You can keep an eye out on for upcoming Suzuki Jimny accessories on the ARB website, ARB Facebook page and upcoming issues of 4x4 Culture. 30

34 WA Travel The Kimberley Big Wet Words and Photography by Steve Fraser Lake Argyle

35 WA Travel The Kimberley is a long way from anywhere else in Australia. And when it rains, it really rains. Some parts of the Kimberley enjoy more than 1,200mm of rain annually. In summer, it s bloody hot and sticky; just about everything that crawls and swims can kill you and once you head off the main roads, you d better be self-sufficient because it gets rough, seriously rough and help can be days away. That being said, there is a reason it s one of the most incredible regions in Australia. Iconic locations like Mitchell Plateau, Kalumburu, Pentecost River, El Questro, the Bungle Bungles and the Gibb River Road are just a few. I ve been to the region a number of times over the years and, like the majority of people, my experiences have always been in the dry season. But not this time. BY AIR OR BY LAND? I decided to photograph the beauty of the area when it s at its magnificent best in the heart of the big wet. This means late February and early March. Given the heat and the amount of rainfall, this adds a few challenges. The first one is that a lot of the 4WD tracks are flooded so access is very limited. But we have a mate, Paul, who lives in the region and owns a helicopter, which he likes to remind me is the ultimate 4WD. The plan was to fly from Perth to Kununurra, hire a decent 4WD to get to as many remote spots as possible and then, when the road turned to a river, get the helicopter to do the hard yards. My good mate and number one photographic assistant, Mark, joined me again on this trip. He s always great company and you don t want to be out the back of the Kimberley on your own, just in case it turns pear-shaped. The fi rst thing that hits you when you arrive in Kununurra is the heat and humidity. It s a touch over 40 C and about 99 per cent humidity it was going to be a sticky week. Let me tell you, they breed the locals tough up here. Living in these conditions is not easy. I was pleased to discover the hire vehicle was a mine spec Prado it s always nice to get a proper 4WD with air conditioning. I know I m getting soft. 33

36 WA Travel When the first light hits the mountain ranges, there is nowhere on earth like it. It s a sight you will never forget. SOARING ABOVE GOD S COUNTRY The next morning, it was a 5.00am start straight out to my friend Paul s farm. Just as the sun hit the horizon, we pulled the helicopter out of the shed and we were ready for lift-off. I love photographing out of helicopters and part of this love is seeing the world from a different angle. The other part is the adrenalin rush of having the doors off, harnessed up with the wind in your hair. I forgot to mention to Mark (who d never been up in a helicopter before) that I always like to have the doors removed. It s much better for getting great shots but not so good for a first-timer. He handled it like a pro though and was soon smiling from ear to ear as we approached the Cockburn Ranges. This truly is God s own country. When the first light hits the mountain ranges, there is nowhere on earth like it. It s a sight you will never forget. Those red colours can only be found in Oz and, added to the rugged landscape, all I can say is, Welcome to the Kimberley. After a few photos of the ranges and a bit of reconnaissance of the local tracks, it was obvious that we weren t going to get too far in the Prado. Just about every creek and river was in flood. It s fair to say it had been a great wet season. We pointed the helicopter north towards Wyndham and the tidal mudflats. We timed it just right; it was low tide and the incredible patterns formed by the giant tides made for the perfect photograph. From above, the mud textures looked much more like tree roots than a tidal plain. A couple of hours later, we were back on the ground, pumped from an incredible morning. It was time to come up with a plan for the next week or so. It was obvious that it was almost impossible to get to the best spots this time of year by 4WD, so I teed up with Paul to take the helicopter up every day. 34

37 WA Travel Pentacost storm GIBB RIVER ROAD Later that day, we loaded up the Prado and Mark and I headed out on the Gibb River Road. I hoped we could make it all the way to the Pentecost River crossing for sunset. In the dry, this is the easiest part of the Gibb River Road but nothing is easy up here when it s flooded. We encountered a few river crossings and a couple of large washed out sections of road but nothing too challenging. It wasn t long before we approached the ranges at the turn-off to El Questro, which is closed during the wet season. If you are planning a trip during the wet, make sure you do your homework. We arrived at the Pentecost River crossing with plenty of time to spare. The river was about as swollen as it gets and no one was getting across unless they had a boat. A flat top tow truck with a Nissan Patrol on the back of it was on the far side of the river. I reckon he was in for a seriously long wait and a very expensive tow. (As it turned out, I came back a week later and he was still sitting there waiting for the river to go down ouch!) Time seems to stand still in the Kimberley. There is no wi-fi or phone signal in many parts of the region. (I carry a sat phone for emergencies.) My only constraints are being at locations for sunrise and sunset shots. I love the feeling of getting away from it all. Up in the Kimberley, it s simply about enjoying the timelessness of this ancient land. Mark decided it was the perfect opportunity to drop a line in and see what was biting. I found a rocky single track that follows a ridge line and decided this could lead to the perfect location for a sunset shot (plus, it was a chance to try out the Prado). After a few kilometres of rocky climbing and descending, which the Prado ate with ease, I had my location. I set up the camera gear and waited. An hour later, the Kimberley turned on a show to remember. A late afternoon thunderstorm started to roll in around sunset and, for about fifteen minutes, the planets aligned. The setting sun danced on the pouring rain to create a pretty special moment. Mark didn t get a bite so we packed up and headed back to camp spam for dinner again! Bungles Bungles I reckon he was in for a seriously long wait and a very expensive tow. King River Wyndam 35

38 WA Travel LOVELY LAKES We decided that for the rest of the week it was best to get the chopper up first thing in the morning when it was cooler and head out in the 4WD later in the day. So, the next morning, we fired up the chopper at sunrise and headed for Lake Argyle. Lake Argyle, a man-made lake that opened in 1971, is often described as the jewel of the Kimberley. During the nineties, the wall was raised six metres, doubling its capacity. The lake is just over a thousand square kilometres in area. Whether you visit by car or are lucky enough to fly over it, the lake is an incredible sight. The crystal blue expanse of fresh water contrasts with the outback red hues of the land surrounding it. At first light, it was stunning and it is something I will never forget. Napp Springs RISKING LIFE AND LIMB The next day, we got a very early start and drove up to Wyndham for sunrise. The destination was the well-known Five Rivers Lookout. At 330 metres above sea level, you get an incredible view of the King, Ord, Durack, Forrest and Pentecost Rivers as they flow into Cambridge Gulf. It s a really great way to welcome a new day, although I will say it s a tough spot to photograph. The sheer vastness of the location makes it a challenge. After a quick breakfast in Wyndham, we headed back to Kununurra and it was time to take to the skies again. I had my heart set on getting into some of the narrow gorges and getting a few unique images, so Paul s flying skills would be tested. It didn t take long to locate a couple of remote gorges that were just what I had in mind. When we did a flyover before the first pass into the gorge, it felt like you could reach out and touch the ancient red rock walls. We were just above the tree canopy, perfect for photography but tough on the chopper. It was around 44 C and hovering in these conditions sent the chopper motor towards the red zone. It was time to land and give the helicopter, and the pilot, a rest. Mark s enthusiasm seemed to have subsided a little since the first day as we squeezed between a few trees and landed near a river bed. It was at that point that Paul mentioned that was about as tight as he had ever flown some days it s just good to be alive. After a spectacular morning photographing from the air, Mark and I decided to head back out in the Prado to experience the lake up close and personal. Like most parts of the Kimberley, you realise how vast this place is. The scale is simply breathtaking. Spending time in cities tends to make me feel a bit claustrophobic. Everything can feel like it s on top of you, so when you head out in the bush, the vast spaces and secluded locations have a way of letting us breathe again and recharge the batteries. I am definitely a country boy at heart. Mark s fishing efforts hadn t worked out as planned, so we headed for the Pumphouse Restaurant in Kununurra for a feed of barramundi and a catch up with some local friends. The restaurant was the original Ord Pump Station on the banks of Lake Kununurra. The food is amazing and the added bonus is that you can walk out on the balcony after dinner. A big floodlight highlights about 30 to 40 crocodiles staring back at you probably not the best spot to go for a swim. Over dinner, we discussed a couple of secret spots Paul had flown over on previous adventures. We planned to head out into the Northern Territory, then back across the Bungle Bungles exploring some remote areas very few people will ever access. 36

39 WA Travel Kenja Blue It was around 44 C and hovering in these conditions sent the chopper motor towards the red zone. Wyndham Mudflats Pentacost storm A PHOTOGRAPHER S DELIGHT As we crossed the Northern Territory border, the amazing amount of rain was obvious. The bush below was green, the sunrise lit up the valley and, in the eloquent words of John Williamson, it s an almighty sight to see. We landed near a very remote swimming hole. Reaching the swimming hole involved a climb down a 10-metre rope and a clamber over rocks. The reward is a swim in crystal clear, cool water. The local Aboriginal people have used the swimming hole for centuries, so we treated it with the utmost respect, making sure to leave no trace of our visit. The next destination, located about 250 kilometres west of Kununurra, was the gorgeous Bungle Bungle Range. The incredible orange and black sandstone domes rise about 300 metres above the landscape and are one of the world s most fascinating geological landmarks. During the dry season, you can drive into some incredible parts of the region, featuring amazing swimming holes, gorges and incredible chasms. In the wet, all the tracks are closed and the best way to view it is from the air. There are a number of air charter companies that fly over and it s worth splashing out a few bucks and treating yourself. We spent an hour or so flying over the region and I was in photographic heaven. Every direction you look at is incredible and I m not sure that it gets much better than this. After a few more days, a few more trips up in the chopper, and searching out as many back roads as the Prado could access, it was time to head home. Whilst I won t miss the heat, I sure will miss the vast open spaces of the Kimberley. If you are planning a trip, add a couple of weeks more than you think you will need. It s a long way to travel there and you won t regret spending the extra time in God s own country. 37

40 ARB TPMS Pressure Check A Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is a vital safety device, as well as great insurance against damaged tyres, and the new ARB TPMS provides more flexibility and functionality than any other unit on the market. ARB has developed a new customisable TPMS that features innovative on and off road modes, trailer functionality, a choice of internal or external sensors and compatibility with both a new plug-in display module and the advanced LINX system (to be released later this year*). There s no doubt that a TPMS is an invaluable addition to any 4WD vehicle, providing critical real-time tyre information to the driver, as well as visual and audio alerts should tyre pressures change or tyre temperature exceed preset levels. By detecting a problem and alerting you before complete tyre deflation, a TPMS is not only a potential life-saving device but also a money-saving device, as a small leak can be easily repaired but a fully defl ated tyre can suffer irreparable damage. In fact, just one tyre saved can equate to the initial purchase price of the TPMS. 38

41 ARB TPMS While there are many TPMS devices on the market, the new ARB system incorporates several unique features that make it more flexible and easy to use, as well as customisable to suit the specific needs of individual 4WDers. The ARB TPMS is available with either external sensors or internal sensors and a plug-in display or upcoming LINX compatibility, plus there s an optional repeater available for monitoring more tyres, making the system ideally suited to those who tow a trailer or caravan. With the previous generation ARB TPMS, it used to monitor four tyres and that was it, but Separate Components the new system monitors up to nine tyres, explains ARB Product Manager Ben Rieson. The internal sensor kit comes standard with fi ve Schrader sensors that are fi tted in place of the standard valve stems, allowing monitoring of the four active tyres as well as the vehicle s spare tyre. The external sensor kit comes with four ARB-designed sensors that simply screw on in place of the valve stem s dust caps, so can easily be moved between tyres if the spare needs to be used. As the system features LINX compatibility, the sensors are sold separately to either a LINX communications (COMS) box or a new TPMS display that simply plugs into the vehicle s 12-volt accessory outlet. The standard internal sensor kit includes fi ve sensors and the external kit includes four sensors, explains Ben Rieson. The new system is designed to work with LINX so we ve split everything out into separate components; you buy the sensors and then you can either buy the display to go with them or the COMS box for monitoring the tyres via LINX. This means those who already have a LINX in their vehicle can just buy the sensors because they don t need a separate display. 39

42 ARB TPMS Air Systems TPMS Display The new TPMS display can monitor up to nine tyres and features on and off road modes, as well as a trailer only mode. The display, which simply plugs into the vehicle s 12-volt accessory outlet, has both visual and audio alarms to alert the driver to tyre leakage, low and high pressures, high temperatures and low battery voltage. There are user-adjustable ranges that can be set for each axle and the alarm will activate when pressure varies by more than 25 per cent above or below the set pressure. The advantage of being able to set different thresholds per axle is for vehicles that run different pressures front to rear depending on load. Despite its compact size, the display can monitor more than four tyres simultaneously. When you re monitoring eight tyres, the display will scroll through them, explains Ben Rieson. First, it will show the four tyres on the vehicle and then, when it shows the trailer tyres, it will signal Trailer on the display. Likewise, if it s monitoring a spare tyre, the four tyres in use will show up and then Spare will be highlighted and the display will show the pressure for the spare tyre. The new system also has an on road mode and an off road mode, says Ben Rieson. When you re on road, you have your tyres set to, say, 34psi and then as soon as you hit the beach, what you can do is press a button to change into off road mode, at which point the display goes orange and the system recognises the preset off road tyre pressures. If you do a bit of beach driving, you might have set the off road pressures to 16psi, so just press the button twice to access off road mode and the TPMS will recognise 16psi as being the correct pressure, and then you just keep on driving. The off road mode provides obvious time-saving benefits, explains Ben. With the previous generation TPMS, when you dropped your tyre pressures to drive off road, you had to go in and reset every single tyre threshold to prevent the alarm from going off, which could be very time consuming, especially if you were towing a trailer and you had to adjust the settings for up to eight tyres. With the new one, after you let your tyres down, just double-press to access off road mode and away you go. The display has had a fair bit of work done in the back-end to update it, which has made it thicker, so we ve added in a welcome additional USB port, adds Ben Rieson. The display can be customised to show pressures and temperatures in the preferred units (psi/bar/c /F ) and it incorporates two 2.1A USB ports, allowing other devices such as smartphones to be plugged in for charging purposes. 40

43 ARB TPMS Trailer Tyres Safe Investment Those who want to monitor trailer tyres, whether using the new display or LINX, can purchase additional internal or external sensors in twin packs, as well as a Trailer Repeater. To monitor trailer tyres, you need the optional trailer kit, which comes with a Trailer Repeater that extends the coverage up to 30 metres so you get a stable signal from the trailer wheels to the TPMS display or the LINX COMS box. The repeater is mounted on the trailer s A-frame and that repeats the signals from the trailer s tyre sensors to the head unit. The Trailer Repeater can be either connected to the vehicle s power supply with an optional hardwire kit or it can be run on two AA batteries that will provide up to 540 hours of vehicle operation. The repeater also features auto-connect and wake-up, is rated to IP67 for water immersion and dust resistance, and is on road and off road mode compatible. Importantly, there s no need to reprogram the TPMS if the trailer is disconnected as the system checks for the presence of the trailer sensors on start-up and will auto-connect on start-up as required. There s also a trailer only mode for vehicles with a factory standard TPMS, adds Ben Rieson. If you only want to monitor trailer tyres, you just need the display [or LINX COMS box], the repeater and the required number of trailer sensors, and then it will monitor only the trailer tyres and won t false alarm because it won t be trying to locate non-existent vehicle sensors. There s no doubt that a TPMS is one of the best investments any 4WDer can make, not only as a safety device, but also to help prevent potentially expensive tyre damage. With features such as on and off road modes, trailer only mode, the ability to monitor up to nine tyres with a choice of internal or external sensors, and compatibility with the new TPMS display as well as LINX, the new ARB TPMS is the most effective and customisable device of its type on the market. *Compatibility with the ARB LINX system will be available from mid

44 Long-Range Frontier Tank Within Range Heading into the touring season, many 4WD adventurers will be poring over maps, carefully planning their routes and calculating distances between fuel stops. In many cases, these distances will exceed the vehicle s safe touring range, especially if fully laden, towing a trailer and/or driving in difficult off road terrain. The only solution to this dilemma is to carry extra fuel. If you think you ll only be a few kilometres shy of making the distance between fuel stops, you could always pack a jerry can or two, but you ll have to find somewhere safe to store them, which can eat into valuable cargo space. In the case of 4x4 wagons, jerry cans need to be carried on the rear of the vehicle or up on the roof, and when full they are heavy and not easy to handle. For those who drive 4x4 utes, jerry cans can be carried in the tub but they need to be kept well away from potential ignition sources, such as electrical equipment including portable fridges. Manual handling of fuel in jerry cans can also be a messy and potentially dangerous procedure, and can result in fuel contamination in dusty and/or wet conditions. The best (and safest) way to extend the touring range of your vehicle is to replace the inadequate original equipment fuel tank with a larger capacity long-range tank. This solution not only results in vastly improved touring range but it also eliminates the need to manually handle fuel and it ensures extra fuel is carried down low in the vehicle where its weight won t have a negative effect on vehicle handling. 42

45 Long-Range Frontier Tank 43

46 Long-Range Frontier Tank "One-piece construction means there are no welds or seams, resulting in exceptional strength." ARB FRONTIER TANKS Since introducing them in 2015, ARB has expanded the range of Frontier Diesel fuel tanks to now include some 18 models of 4x4 wagons and utes, with fuel capacities ranging from 112 litres to 180 litres depending on vehicle application. ARB Frontier fuel tanks are manufactured from a durable roto-moulded cross-linked polymer that s lighter than steel but is tough enough to handle impacts without damage. This construction method allows for a singlepiece construction that s configured to the shape of the underside of specific vehicle models, so designers can create intricate shapes to maximise fuel capacity. Frontier tanks are fitted using existing vehicle mounting points and they utilise a non-rigid mounting system that allows for movement of the tank within the vehicle s chassis. Furthermore, one-piece construction means there are no welds or seams, resulting in exceptional strength. Other features include a CNC-machined metal plate that accommodates a positive fitment of the fuel pump module and, in most applications, the vehicle s OE fuel pump module is retained. There s also a fully machined filler neck and a breather with one-way valve to prevent fuel leakage in the event of a vehicle rollover. RANGE INCREASE So just how much more range can you expect to achieve by fitting a Frontier tank? In the case of the Isuzu MU-X, for example, fitting a 112-litre Frontier tank provides an increased capacity of 47 litres over the standard 65-litre fuel tank, which in turn increases the vehicle s touring range from around 800km up to more than 1,400km (based on MU-X s ADR combined fuel consumption figure of 7.9L/100km). In the case of a current model Toyota HiLux, fi tment of a Frontier tank increases fuel capacity from 80 litres to a whopping 140 litres, potentially increasing touring range from just over 900km to more than 1,600km (based on HiLux dual-cab 4x4 auto s ADR combined fuel consumption figure of 8.5L/100km). Increased range as outlined above makes many of Australia s most iconic off road adventures achievable without the need to carry extra jerry cans. Of course, there are other advantages to fitting a long-range fuel tank, including the need for fewer fuel stops and increased ability to pick and choose when and where to fill up, such as when the fuel price cycle is at its lowest. 44

49 The Savannah Way Part II Words and Photography by Justin Lorrimer Trip in a Van We continue Trip in a Van s epic adventure through the Savannah Way where things start to get rough!

50 Australian Travel Normanton to Leichardt Falls So this is where we reckon the real Savannah Way starts. The dirt! From Normanton, you take the turn-off towards Burketown and things really start to get remote. The first thing you ll hit will be the Burke & Wills monument to gain some history about these explorers from the early days. It s amazing what they achieved with such limited resources. We were headed for a free camp that we d heard a lot about called Leichardt Falls. A gorgeous free camp set on a clifftop overlooking the Leichardt River. There was no water running over the falls while we were there but it s a beautiful and atmospheric setting with magical lagoon views. We chilled here for the afternoon and soaked up yet another magical sunset in front of the campfire. Burketown the Barramundi Capital of Australia! We cruised into Burketown and hit up the bakery to grab ourselves a coffee. It s also worth checking out the Burketown Road Kill Butcher to grab some great T-bones. We bought a few, which we chucked on the Ziggy later that arvo. Delicious! We decided to head out to the Albert River free camp, which is about 20 minutes out of town. After driving through a small gate on the left, we were on nothing but mud flats! It s a bit nerve-racking towing a 2.8-tonne van across tidal mudflats, but we drove for around eight kilometres to get to our campsite and only crossed one boggy patch that took a bit of right boot and low range to get through. There is service out here so you can book your site online at It cost us $35 for the night. This includes your $25 fishing licence and $10 for camping. We set up on the bank overlooking the river and Justin got straight into fishing. We cranked up a campfire and watched another amazing sunset. We really were being spoilt with these amazing outback sunsets. 48

51 Australian Travel IT S A BIT NERVE-RACKING TOWING A 2.8-TONNE VAN ACROSS TIDAL MUDFLATS Driving Through the Gates of Hell The drive from Burketown to Hells Gate Roadhouse is a sealed road all the way. Woohoo! When we arrived, we were surprised to see so much grass. There s plenty of room to camp out the back. They also have a cafe, but maybe give the coffee a miss! It s only a pod machine with long-life milk and they charge $5! Yuck! We parked up in the unpowered section for $26 (kids free). It s a nice stop with plenty of other travellers passing through. The bar does a happy hour of an afternoon and the mechanic, Timmy, does a fire twirling show at night. If you re keen to push on, there is a good free camp called Hahn Creek Billabong only 25 kilometres further down the road. 49

52 Australian Travel Hitting the Rough Stuff THE ROUGH STUFF CONTINUED RELENTLESSLY AND IN SOME PARTS WE WERE DOWN TO JUST 10KM/H. Once we left Hells Gate, it was a 320-kilometre test of our corrugation endurance! The stretch of dirt road hit us with some wicked rough stuff and we really started to question our decision to tow the van along this section of road. The rough stuff continued relentlessly and in some parts we were down to just 10km/h. We made it to the border, crossing into the Northern Territory, and eventually the road eased up just a bit. We had our tyres down all round to 26psi and were managing well doing about 80km/h. There are a few free camps along this stretch but we decided to smash out the rough stuff and make it through to Borroloola. Driving into the town of Borroloola is certainly nothing spectacular but you will definitely be happy to see some black top, even if it s only for a few kilometres. The caravan and Mazda BT-50 performed awesomely and we didn t have any issues other than a bit of dust through some vents in the van. We stayed at the caravan park here at the Loola, in the unpowered section for $25. You ll probably be needing to stock up on a few supplies by now, so head to the Malandari Store for some groceries. Be prepared for some outrageous prices but this is your last chance before Lorella Springs to stock up. There are very limited supplies at Lorella Springs and what they do have is 10 times more expensive than Borroloola so load up! Top End Fishing Heaven King Ash Bay was our next stop, a fishing village and caravan park that gets overrun with a plague of the silver-haired generation at this time of year (just joking, oldies). The trek out here from Borroloola is mostly bitumen except for the last 30 kilometres, which is pretty corrugated. However, a grader does maintain this road at times so you might get lucky and have a smooth run in. Compared to the rough stuff from Hells Gate though, this road is bliss! There is plenty of riverside camping at King Ash Bay and powered sites are also available. There are some great facilities with happy hour and a good feed on offer at Groper s Bar & Grill. There s also a terrific boat ramp for those lucky enough to have a boat and plenty of people around to have a beer with! We camped in the unpowered section for $22.50 and kids under 14 are free. 50

53 Australian Travel Get Lost On the way into Lorella, we were checking our trusty WikiCamps app to see what else was around and we saw there were a heap of good National Park sites between the turn-off to Lorella Springs and Roper Bar in the Limmen National Park. So as a last minute decision, we decided to go and check one out! The first camp was only 12 kilometres from the turn-off to Lorella and it s a deadset pearler! The Southern Lost City has striking sandstone formations that are definitely a sight to see. There are fire pits, spacious areas to pull up in, picnic tables, toilets and a beautiful sunset as always! The campground is superbly maintained and cheap as chips at $7.70 for the family. Pull on your runners or hiking boots (or thongs if you re like Justin) and take the walk around the Southern Lost City. The walk only takes around an hour and is well worth it! It s an easy walk through tall, beautiful pillars with a lookout at the halfway point, giving you a great view of the landscape that surrounds you. It s pretty epic! From here, you have a few choices. You can head into Lorella Springs and have an amazing experience exploring or you can keep heading west through Roper Bar and then onto Mataranka and beyond. That s the end of the Savannah Way for now. Next time, we ll bring you back from the west to meet up where we left off at Lorella Springs. Cheers and enjoy! Now that you ve made it to Lorella Springs, check out 4x4 Culture Issues 52 and 53 for ARB s two-part feature on this thousand acre paradise. 51

54 Ford Ranger PXIII 52

55 Ford Ranger PXIII Revised Ranger When Ford updated its hugely popular Ranger ute late last year, it not only added the Raptor s 2.0-litre bi-turbo-diesel engine and 10-speed auto to the line-up, but also revised the suspension and introduced class-leading active safety features on higher grade models. The major OE changes to the Ranger PXIII suspension is the relocation and stiffening of the front anti-roll bar, which Ford says minimises body roll when cornering, and therefore allows for fitment of a softer spring rate for improved ride comfort. As a result, ARB s OME engineers have developed a range of new suspension options to suit the Ranger PXIII. The Ranger Wildtrak now comes standard with a raft of new safety features and these are also available as part of an optional Technology Pack on Ranger XLT. This package includes Inter-Urban Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Vehicle Detection and Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist/ Lane Departure Warning and Traffic Sign Recognition. Revised ARB bull bars have been developed for compatibility with these new active safety features. 53

56 Ford Ranger PXIII With so many changes to the front suspension design, ARB s team of engineers have redesigned the OME Nitrocharger suspension package OME NITROCHARGER SPORT In addition to relocating the sway bar on the front end of the Ranger PXIII, Ford also changed the location of the front bump stops, from between the lower control arm and the chassis to the shock absorber itself. This results in more load going through the shock absorber under full compression, so Ford increased the size of the lower bush significantly, as well as the size of the bolt that goes through it. With so many changes to the front suspension design, ARB s team of engineers have redesigned the OME Nitrocharger suspension package for Ranger PXIII, and they re also close to finalising a new BP-51 package to suit the vehicle. We had demand for an OME Nitrocharger suspension product for the Ranger PXIII as soon as it was released, from private and fleet customers, and we have been able to develop a package to suit the vehicle very quickly, says OME Lead Engineer Stuart Fooks. That meant development of a bigger bush, with a bigger bolt to go through it, and there were also several changes to the damper itself. We are able to reuse the OE bump stop, continues Stuart, which is taken off the OE shock absorber and relocated to the shaft of the OME shock absorber. We have retuned the shock absorber so that its compressed length is around the same as the OE compressed length but in terms of travel, the OME shock is longer, which results in more travel to work as a package with the longer springs and the amount of lift the kit provides. The OME engineers have also refined front spring rates to specifically suit the beefed-up sway bar of the Ranger PXIII. As with previous OME Ranger suspension systems, a wide range of spring rates are available to perfectly suit vehicles with different front-end loads, such as vehicles with no accessories fitted, vehicles with an alloy bull bar, vehicles with a steel bull bar and vehicles with a bull bar, winch and driving lights. 54

57 Ford Ranger PXIII The Nitrocharger Sport rear suspension package for Ranger PXIII remains unchanged. We ve got the same spring and shock absorber options that we had for the Ranger PXII, says Stuart. There are specific packages designed to suit vehicles that usually carry a load of between 0-300kg, 300kg to 600kg or 600kg and up. BP-51 As with Nitrocharger Sport development, the OME team has also had to revise the design of BP-51 to suit the Ranger PXIII. Because the bottom bush is now bigger and the bolt size has gone up to an M20, we ve increased the size of the spherical bearing in the bottom of the BP-51, explains Stuart Fooks. We ve also developed new spring rates and we ve had to develop our own bump stop because the BP-51 is supplied as a completely assembled unit. While you could achieve the damping required using the adjustment on the existing BP-51, you d be coming towards the top of the adjustment range with a full load on board. With a bit more piston valving in it, there s more opportunity for adjustment for those customers who are at the top end of the payload spectrum, especially for customers with a GVM upgrade, says Stuart. At the time of writing, BP-51 development for Ranger PXIII was nearly complete, with pre-production processes almost underway and a view to schedule production in April. As with Nitrocharger Sport development, the OME team has also had to revise the design of BP-51 to suit the Ranger PXIII. Stuart says the OME team has also been investigating a heavier-valved BP-51 option for the rear of the Ranger to suit users who regularly carry a heavy load. We can fit the same BP-51 as previously developed for Ranger and it offers the full range of adjustment in compression and rebound. We re also looking at the opportunity to do a heavier-valved BP-51 that still has that adjustment in compression and rebound, but with the valving starting with more damping for those with a GVM upgrade or who are constantly near GVM. 55

58 Ford Ranger PXIII The location of the radar module meant we had to make quite a few design changes to the bar itself" 56

59 Ford Ranger PXIII SUMMIT BAR AND SUMMIT SAHARA BAR Many of the new active safety features on Ranger PXIII rely on information provided by a radar module located at the front of the vehicle, so ARB has revised the design of the Summit bar and Summit Sahara bar to ensure compatibility with these new systems. The location of the radar module meant we had to make quite a few design changes to the bar itself because the previous Summit bar s recessed winch control box mount didn t work with the Ranger s new centrally mounted radar, explains ARB Product Manager Steve Sampson. Unlike the previous Summit and Summit Sahara bars for Ranger, the new PXIII Summit bar no longer has a built-in recessed winch control box mount. Instead, the control box mount is now a separate bolt-in component that is situated slightly higher to allow for compatibility with the OE radar unit. The new bolt-in control box mount leaves space for the radar in its central location, says Steve. It also means the full range of OE adjustment for the radar is retained as the stance of the vehicle can change depending on factors such as load on board, suspension fitted and tyre size, sometimes you need to adjust the face of the radar so it s perpendicular to the ground rather than nose down or nose up. As the Summit and Summit Sahara bar control box mounts are now separate bolt-in units, they are now included as part of a winch installation kit. As well as the new Summit and Summit Sahara bars for Ranger PXIII, Steve Sampson says the Alloy bar to suit the popular Ford workhorse is also under development and will be available soon. 57

60 Ford Ranger PXIII Point of Protection UNDER VEHICLE PROTECTION Ford s recent facelift to the PXIII Ranger included a number of changes that affected fitment of ARB s Under Vehicle Protection (UVP). Changes to the sway bars and the introduction of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and shielding to the exhaust system required a brand new UVP system to be developed. TO THE POINT To provide protection to the vehicle exhaust and DPFs, the panels now span from chassis rail to chassis rail, eliminating the need for a separate DPF shield panel. Additionally, the rear panel of the UVP has been redesigned so that one panel now covers both transmission and transfer case. Manufactured from laser-cut, pressed and folded three-millimetre steel, ARB s UVP systems are engineered to shield vulnerable under body components from off road debris. The range has been designed with practicality in mind; owners are able to remove the panels prior to vehicle servicing. ARB s UVP for the Ford Ranger PXIII will fit with or without an ARB bull bar. Contact your local ARB store or stockist for pricing and availability. With Ford s introduction of electronic power steering on the PXIII Ranger, minor changes were required to the top chassis bracket of ARB s Recovery Point to provide necessary clearance. Additional clearance was also required for the larger diameter sway bars now fitted to the PXIII. The Ranger PXIII Recovery Point is a centrallymounted design that links the two chassis cross-members together to achieve ARB s eight-tonne rating. With no mounting threads in the chassis, the design utilises weld-nut plates inserted into the chassis crossmembers that effectively clamp the chassis, providing strong recovery point attachment. As with other ARB Recovery Points, a 20-millimetre laminated eye provides the attachment point for a 4.7-tonne bow shackle with the slotted hole allowing for the bow of the shackle to be passed through and the strap attached via the pin instead of the bow. This allows even distribution of the recovery force through the shackle to avoid side loads on the pin. Side loads on the pin invoke forces that tend to open up the shackle, putting unwanted load on its weakest point, the pin threads. Although mounted lower than many other ARB Recovery Points, the lower attachment point can be beneficial in pulling the vehicle up and out of (or over) an obstacle rather than dragging the vehicle through, resulting in less damaging force being applied to the steering and suspension components. Contact your local ARB store or stockist for pricing and availability. 58

61 Ford Ranger PXIII Easy Does It The recently released Ford Ranger PXIII and Ranger Raptor have seen the introduction of a factory-fitted tailgate torsion spring that is designed to assist the closing effort of the tailgate. Whilst this addition offers assistance in closing the tailgate, it does not assist in safe and controlled tailgate lowering. ARB engineers have developed a new ARB Tailgate Assist System Kit to complement the factory torsion spring and provide Ranger PXIII and Raptor owners with easy and safe tailgate opening. The ARB Tailgate Assist struts have been codeveloped with Stabilus, the world-renowned strut manufacturer, and ARB has designed a unique mounting system to ensure longevity. Tailgates vibrate a lot and tubs move when you re driving in rough conditions, so we ve put these struts through rigorous tests. We re confident in the product and know all the components are going to last, says ARB Product Manager Rhys Brown. Part Number: RRP: $

62 Off Road Cooking :::::::::::::::::: Chicken Thigh Spit Roast There s nothing like a good spit over the campfire. The best part about this recipe is that you can prepare and marinate this at home before you leave and then freeze it. All the hard work is done before you even roll out the swag. We ve included two marinade options here depending on your taste (the lemon and garlic marinade is easier if you re making this from scratch whilst already out on the tracks). ::::::::: Ingredients: 2kg chicken thigh 30g fresh basil 1 tbsp fresh parsley 1 tbsp fresh mint 2 limes (zest only) ¼ cup olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced Salt and pepper Method: Zesty Lime Chicken To make the marinade: Blend the herbs, lime zest, olive oil and garlic in a blender or food processor or bash in a pestle and mortar until a smooth paste is formed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. ::::::::: ::::::::: Ingredients: 2kg chicken thighs ¼ cup olive oil 2 tbsp lemon juice 2 tbsp dry thyme 2 tbsp dry oregano 5 cloves garlic, minced Salt and pepper Lemon & Garlic Chicken To make the marinade: Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, herbs and garlic in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. ::::::::: Add your choice of marinade to the chicken thighs, ensuring the marinade is well mixed through and massaged into the meat. We usually like to do this in a large zip lock bag. Let the chicken marinate for at least four hours, preferably overnight. Chicken can be frozen at this point for use at a later date. Prepare your campfire so that it is mostly hot coals. Take the spit attachment and add on the first fork. Skewer each chicken thigh through the middle, turning each piece by 45 degrees to try and ensure an even shape. Add the end fork and compress the chicken stack as tightly as possible to prevent the chicken spit from spinning on the spike. Reserve the leftover marinade for basting. Place the spit over the hot coals, maintaining a constant heat during cooking. Baste with leftover marinade every 20 minutes or so. Check the internal temperature of the chicken using a meat thermometer. Once the meat has reached 74 C, remove from the heat, wrap in foil and rest for 10 minutes. This usually takes between an hour and 90 minutes depending on how hot your fire is. Serve with flatbread, tabouli or just chuck it in a sanga. Feeds four to six campers (dependent on their hangry levels). :::::::::::::::::: 60

63 Off Road Cooking :::::::::::::::::: Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Jars Ingredients: 4 tbsp butter, melted 1 packet choc ripple biscuits 2 blocks cream cheese (room temperature) ¾ cup condensed milk Pack of Oreo biscuits Method: Place the choc ripple biscuits into a large zip lock bag or clean tea towel and crush to a crumb. Mix in the melted butter. Place the cream cheese and condensed milk in a bowl and whisk until smooth (does take a little elbow grease). Place the choc biscuit crumb into a jar, mug or bowl and press down to compress to a one-centimetre thick base. The size of your receptacle will determine how many cheesecakes you end up with but we found we made eight small ¾-cup jar cheesecakes from this recipe. Portion out your cheesecake mixture between your jars and top with crumbled Oreo biscuits. Place in fridge for two hours, then serve. Feeds four to eight campers (depending on serving size). :::::::::::::::::: 61

64 Photography Tips & Techniques Pushing the Boundaries in Your Photography Words and Photography by Michael Ellem 62

65 Photography Tips & Techniques Sometimes in life you need to push yourself out of your comfort zone in order to achieve a specific result. As a photographer, you never really know what requests will be coming up. If a client wants something in particular, you will most likely do everything you can to ensure that they re happy. I originally took up photography in my teen years after a hunting experience helped me to make the decision to photograph animals rather than shoot them with a rifle. That was a long time ago and I now have a better understanding about the requirement for maintaining a balance through animal control. In many areas that we travel, we see the destruction and the devastating effects caused by certain species of wildlife and introduced species that are out of control. It s unbelievable that some of these beautiful animals can cause so much damage. So, although I would rather shoot a great image of an animal through the lens, I do have a respect for the requirements of controlled culling. This brings me to the day I received a brief that brought me back to that prominent teen experience. I would be required to photograph the story of a real hunt in the Northern Territory. For some people, this would be no problem. For me, however, it would be time to take a walk through the timeline of a complete hunt. I knew this would test my mental state for sure. 63

66 Photography Tips & Techniques Photographing the landscape, the people and the 4WD component was easy but when the guns came out, really big guns, that was when it all became real. Again I kept telling myself that this business was designed around animal management and the guys have a really good reputation. But I still found myself asking stupid questions, which I think was in some way to prepare myself for what was going to take place, but also because in general I just tend to ask a lot of questions. The hunt utilised two vehicles, one closed and air-conditioned and the other the main hunting vehicle, a LandCruiser 100 Series with the roof cut off, leaving the occupants completely out in the sun and dust all day. I spent time in both of these vehicles to capture the appropriate shots on the hunt. I am used to spotting an animal and walking through the scrub on my own with a camera to photograph it, not walking with a hunting party with a completely different outcome in mind. It is normal for me to have a level of adrenaline when I am chasing a shot of a scrub bull, wild boar or brown snake, etc. but this was different. I am fairly confident that I entered into another world where my instincts as a photographer took over in some form of autopilot mode, pushing me along through the main component of the hunt. (None of the animals photographed and featured in this article were killed just shot with a camera). 64

67 Photography Tips & Techniques In some ways, I felt that my mind was helping me through mixing the reality of two lines of thought: Why I originally got into photography to capture the beauty of an animal and Being part of a hunt where an animal was certainly going to be killed This was one of the biggest challenges in my career and although my being there was never going to change the outcome of this hunt for the animal involved, I feel that I certainly have a lot more respect for the professionalism of this community of hunters who I spent time with. In a way, these guys are just like me; we are actually alike. These guys and their hunting are just like me with my photography; they are passionate, organised, well prepared, careful with their equipment, strict on safety and perfectionists in their field just like me. But I still enjoy taking home an image captured as the prize for the world to see. 65

68 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Malaysian Mud Mania Words and Photography by Chris Collard 66

69 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge We head to Southeast Asia for the Rainforest Challenge, one of the world s toughest off road competitions. Each year, we search the globe for back-country adventures that pique the imagination and off road events where only the strong survive. Across the pond, the King of the Hammers has taken the US by storm, Mexico has the Baja 1000 and South America is the adopted home of the Dakar Rally. Over the years, ARB has been involved with nearly all of them. But there is a long-running debate on which is the toughest or at least ranked in the top 10. This winter, we headed across the South China Sea to Southeast Asia for a small event with a big reputation, the Rainforest Challenge (RFC). It has been a few years since we attended the RFC but, as a long-time supporter, we wanted to get our boots back in the red Malaysia mud and see if it is as tough as we remembered. It did not disappoint. We arrived in the capital of Kuala Lumpur to a gala parade, grand presentations with local dignitaries and rigs like none we ve seen. Vehicles flew flags from Russia, China, Mongolia, Ecuador and a host of other countries, and a truly international group assembled for the driver s orientation. Chatting with founder Luis Wee, we learned that the organisation and its many chapters host events in nearly two dozen countries throughout the year. The Malaysian venue just happens to be the grand finale. Considering the fact that the country is 50 per cent jungle and averages nearly 100 inches of rain annually, it is the ideal locale for a mud slog of epic magnitude. We were told that this year s event, the 23rd annual, would be relatively dry (the monsoon had passed), but we soon learned that in Malaysia, dry simply means less wet. The first two days, the Prologue and Predator stages, are a bit of a warm-up and consist of a dozen flagged tracks through hill and dale near the coastal town of Kota Bharu. The RFC, however, is ambulatory and day three found us deep in the Northern Highlands where civilization ends and the jungle begins. Having said this, the organisers, support crews, media and race teams needed to be fully selfcontained for the long haul the longest stretch between fuel sources entailed 600 kilometres of muddy two-tracks. 67

70 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Unlike many events, the daily starting order is determined by lottery Tyres, Tech and Time While the RFC is similar to other events, in that the goal is to go from point A to point B in the shortest elapsed time, the equipment and techniques required to do so vary greatly from that needed to cross the outback. This is due to the terrain and weather. Malaysian soil consists of fine red dirt and clay, and Mother Nature sweeps through each season packing a wet punch the monsoon. To help you understand the inner workings of an RFC-capable car, check out page 71 for some of the technical tricks needed to survive. Vehicle classes and scoring are quite simple. Each of the 34 special stages (SS) is worth 100 points to the winner; those who follow receive a fraction thereof. Classes are broken down into three categories Prototype, Production and Modified Production and there are sub-categories for each: fuel type, displacement, portal or non-portal axles, team gender, etc. Although maximum tyre diameter is 40 inches, most run smaller rubber. The reason is that courses thread a path through dense jungle barely wide enough for a UTV. We found that the Suzuki Samurai is by far the most common vehicle and rigs such as an FJ40 LandCruiser are considered large and have a definite disadvantage in some areas. Unlike many events, the daily starting order is determined by lottery. Everyone gathers for the morning meeting and pulls a number. 68

71 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Into the Jungle The Survival and Lost World stages each have distinct characteristics. Survival pits drivers against deep flowing rivers strewn with large boulders, while Lost World finds them hacking paths through the bush, stringing winch lines and riding ground anchors. The mountainous terrain and daily rainfall lent perfectly to unstable trail conditions. Log bridges needed to be repaired or were nonexistent, and teams often found themselves building new ones from scratch to cross deep ravines. A tentative schedule is outlined on the first day but depending on Mother Nature s mood, the following week can be fluid (pun intended). If it rains like hell, rivers swell and are impassable, and a two-hour mountain pass might take all night. Midweek, on what was to be a seven-hour transit drive between bivouacs, we found ourselves at 3.00am the following morning still winching our vehicles daisy-chain style through knee-deep mud. If it rains like hell, rivers swell and are impassable, and a two-hour mountain pass might take all night One of the RFC s trademark elements is the Twilight Zone. After a full day of competition, teams head out for an unsupported overnight slog. They are dispatched in groups, as the Kelantan region is a true jungle replete with roaming elephants, a wealth of venomous snakes and scorpions, and Malayan tigers. It is a dangerous place, especially at night. The media can opt to stay in camp or enter the Twilight Zone by hitching a ride on the back of a race car. We opted for the latter and found ourselves humping it over a soggy mountain until the wee hours. Due to technical challenges, Twilight Zone scoring is a bit different. Anyone that survives and makes the 7.00am cut-off time the next morning receives the full 100 points. 69

72 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Wrap-Up Malaysian mud does the devil s work when it comes to silencing your vehicle s pulse. After a week in the gooey stuff, we can tell you that the RFC is one tough hombre. The website states it is not for the faint of heart and we wholeheartedly concur. As is the case with the Dakar Rally and Baja 1000, the Rainforest Challenge is not only brutal on competitors but everyone involved. If the idea of brushing mud out of your teeth, sleep deprivation and wearing soaked clothes and soggy boots for 10 days is your idea of fun, the RFC is your ticket to ride. Interested in running the RFC but don t have a rig? No worries! The organisers can put you in touch with outfits that hire (rent) race-ready vehicles for a cost of about $3,500. They don t offer full damage insurance waivers or any insurance, so we suggest driving it like you own it rather than a rental There won t be any roadside assistance if you break it. We often assess the difficulty of an event by the number of teams that see the checkered flag. When the mud settled, more than 50 per cent of the field had broken, crashed, turned around or were on the end of a tow strap behind a support rig. We had traversed more than 900 kilometres of dense jungle, building bridges, winching until sunrise and dodging scorpions. Would we agree that the Rainforest Challenge ranks in the top 10 toughest events in the world? Lima Charlie on that one. If the idea of brushing mud out of your teeth, sleep deprivation and wearing soaked clothes and soggy boots for 10 days is your idea of fun, the RFC is your ticket to ride.. 70

73 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Rainforest Tech Tips A ground anchor is standard equipment on all vehicles. Extreme mud requires cavernous tread blocks and a means to extricate your vehicle. The most common choice of tyre is the Simex Centipede, Interco Super Swamper and Maxxis Mud Trepedor. Hood-deep water is an everyday occurrence; air intakes are routed above the roof or inside the cockpit. Winching systems include a PTO as well as a conventional electric unit. The PTO is utilised for most situations but if the engine dies, the vehicle is upside down or precision control is needed, the electric takes the lead. Full hydraulic steering and dual-caliper brakes are commonplace. The additional brake systems (one left and one right) are electronically actuated and linked to the turn signals; flip the signal and the vehicle cuts in that direction. Gooey mud will quickly clog a conventionally mounted radiator, so cooling systems are repositioned up high and near the centre of the vehicle. In deep mud, competitors running portal axles gain the advantage. The most commonly used is the Volvo 101 model. Pneumatics are not only used to actuate ARB Air Lockers, which is standard equipment on nearly all RFC vehicles, but also to engage power take-off (PTO) winching systems. 71

74 ARB Seat Skins ALWAYS COVERED While you re sitting comfortably in your car seat, one of the many off road ironies we forget to consider while on the tracks is the seat itself having to stand up to a tremendous amount of abuse. Whether it is muddy boots or clothes, spilt drinks, kids snacking in the back seat, wet swimsuits, wet and slobbering pets, seat friction or harsh sunlight, all have the potential to ruin or just wear out your great looking seats. Luckily, ARB has you and the seats covered. Designed with ruggedness in mind, ARB Seat Skin covers hug beautifully to your vehicle s seats while providing the same level of safety and comfort with in-built airbag stitching for rapid deployment in emergencies. Incorporating the popular topographic ARB print with red stitching highlights, these seat covers create a sleek look inside your 4x4. Made from a three-millimetre premium thermoset elastomer fabric, ARB Seat Skin covers provide an excellent and firm fit to keep overtime sagging to a minimum and prevent damage to the OE seats. Independently airbag tested and certified, these seat covers utilise a stitch pattern from specialised Japanese sewing machines, providing a safe deployment of the SRS airbags. 72

76 The Mighty 79 SIMPSON SIMPSON 74

77 The Mighty 79 SHAKEDOWN SHAKEDOWN Words by Dean Mellor Photography by Offroad Images Readers of 4x4 Culture and those who follow ARB s many social media channels will no doubt be very familiar with the vehicle dubbed the Mighty 79. ARB photographer Michael Ellem of Offroad Images recently customised this LandCruiser-based beast to suit his very specifi c photographic and video-making requirements, which see him regularly travel into the most remote, difficult-to-access and, of course, spectacular parts of Australia. Although the Mighty 79 build had been in the planning stages for a couple of years, by the time it actually came to stripping down a brand new 79 double-cab and equipping it with the best gear the Australian 4x4 aftermarket has to offer, Michael had to rush to get the vehicle completed before its first scheduled shakedown run across the northern Simpson Desert s famous Madigan Line. The timing was extremely tight and, in addition to many sleepless nights refining the set-up of the Cruiser and packing all the gear, Michael then finished off the job en route. 75

4 Snapshot 2

5 Snapshot Snapshot Matthew Frost National Sales & Marketing Manager I ve been asked a few times lately why the Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series is featured so much in ARB s marketing. The simple reason is it s by far the vehicle our customers are most interested in. Whenever we feature a photograph, video or story on a 70, the level of engagement we get dwarfs any other vehicle. When you consider that the 70 Series platform has been around since the mid- 1980s, it s quite interesting that it still commands so much attention. Sure, the vehicle has received a number of upgrades and enhancements over the years, but if you parked a new 70 Series next to one that was 30 years old, you d see that it s pretty much the same vehicle. The mainstream media is fascinated by vehicles that feature sophisticated technology, with autonomous cars in particular attracting a great deal of attention. We know, however, that based on the hundreds of thousands of people that engage with ARB on social media, Australian 4WDers have absolutely no interest in selfdriving cars whatsoever. Our customers enjoy driving and, as the 70 Series example proves, capable and functional 4x4s that require a level of skill to make them optimally perform still attract the most interest. However, as of last month, ARB officially has a new number one vehicle on social media! Posts on this vehicle across Facebook, Instagram and YouTube have received enormous attention, with customer engagement reaching an all-time high. You re probably thinking it s a next generation dualcab 4x4 or wagon Nope, it s a Suzuki. ARB partnered with Suzuki Australia to build the Suzuki Jimny JBOX and the interest in this vehicle has been overwhelming. JBOX was the vision of Suzuki Australia General Manager, Michael Pachota. Michael knew that the 2019 Jimny was always going to be enormously appealing to 4WDers but was keen to step things up a notch and demonstrate what a sensational platform the vehicle will make for people wanting to customise it for aggressive off road conditions. ARB equipped JBOX with a bull bar, driving lights, rock sliders and Old Man Emu suspension, launching it on social media in February. We were inundated with interest and positive commentary around the vehicle. The new Jimny is a value-for-money, simply designed 4WD with enormous off road capability. The Range Rover, launched in the mid-1970s, proved that a live axle/coil spring combination is the most capable off road vehicle configuration and this was later implemented into 4x4s such as the Nissan Patrol and Toyota LandCruiser. 4WDs have moved away from live axles in recent years in favour of independent suspension, which many believe compromises off road ability. The Jimny, however, has adopted a proven, reliable and capable platform that really lends itself to enhancements. Air Lockers, mud tyres and long-travel after-market suspension can easily be fitted to the Jimny, taking it from a competent 4x4 to immensely capable machine. Of course, the Jimny s size will limit its market but its immense worldwide popularity has already led to speculation regarding other variants of the platform. The hype around the Jimny reinforces what many of us have known for ages. Capability, simplicity and character are features 4WDers are looking for. The vehicle exudes the latter, adopting a unique design that shuns the general trend vehicle manufacturers are opting for these days. With already a six-month waiting list for one, Suzuki has clearly nailed it and we look forward to seeing Jimnys out on the tracks. With bar work, suspension, Air Lockers, under vehicle protection and a host of other gear in development for the Jimny, I have no idea when I m going to get ARB s vehicle off our engineers, but it is undoubtedly the vehicle I am most excited about heading bush in this year.

6 What s New What's New When hitting the tracks with your family, safety is always top of mind. Whether it s keeping the kids away from the campfire, making sure the caravan stove isn t left on or even ensuring you re not too sleepy-eyed trying to get your Jetboil going and your first shot of caffeine running through your veins. While fire safety is always practised, having a suitable fire extinguisher close by is not always practical. Introducing the Firestryker TM, exclusive to ARB. This fire suppression system has remarkable extinguishing capabilities and extinguishes for eight times longer than a 1.5 kilogram fire extinguisher. This small, lightweight cylinder is made up of two parts. The upper section is a metal tube that contains the extinguishing charge and the lower plastic part acts as a support handle. Upon striking, the Firestryker TM will produce a potassium aerosol jet that will last for approximately 100 seconds. Firestryker Thoroughly tested for use, it is suitable for class A, B, C, F and K fires and also electrical fires of up to 100kv (refer to fire testing table). Simple to maintain, the Firestryker TM requires no servicing, refilling, checks or maintenance and will not suffer the effects of compacting from being stored in a 4WD for extended periods of time. The Firestryker TM is environmentally friendly, can be recycled after use and comes with a three-year warranty. It s a simple and easy way to ensure that you and your family are always protected in the event of an unexpected fire.

9 Outback Solutions Drawers Roll Out A new addition to the ARB Outback Solutions cargo drawer range further enhances the modular system s versatility and custom-fit capability. The new Mid-Height Roller Floor offers the convenience of the Low-Height Roller Floor for easy access to a portable fridge but with the storage benefits of a drawer offering an extra 30mm of depth. The new Mid-Height Roller Floor has a handy drawer depth of 105mm, which is enough to accommodate a variety of ARB accessories such as an inflation case, a first aid kit and recovery straps. Yet it s significantly lower in overall height than a full depth Roller Drawer/ Roller Floor, which has a 215mm depth. Like other components in the ARB Outback Solutions modular range, the new Mid-Height Roller Floor is available in 945mm, 1,045mm and 1,355mm lengths to suit a variety of vehicles including 4WD wagons and utes. It is also compatible with the existing range of full-height drawers and is supplied with a single carpeted side panel for a neat finish when required. The ARB Outback Solutions range has been ADR crash tested and certified, and the modular drawer systems are manufactured with a galvanised steel chassis and use stainless components. The drawers are finished in a commercial grade UV-resistant marine carpet. Despite their robust construction, ARB Outback Solutions drawers are lighter than many competitor products, allowing more equipment to be safely and securely carried in the back of a vehicle. The new Mid-Height Roller Floor weighs between 26kg and 32kg depending on length and is rated to carry up to 75kg when extended, with a maximum load of 100kg. Convenient features include an anti-rollback system that locks the Mid-Height Roller Floor in its open position to prevent unintentional closing, an anti-rattle locking mechanism to eliminate movement when closed, slam-shut latches for easy operation even when hands are full, sealed dust- and water-resistant bearings and aluminium runners for smooth and durable operation. Being a modular system, owners can pick and choose which ARB Outback Solutions components will best suit their requirements, allowing them to tailor a setup to perfectly match their vehicle. The new Mid-Height Roller Floor can be mounted where desired and combined with various other ARB Outback Solutions components. There are vehicle-specific floor kits for a professional finish and these incorporate bracing to handle heavy loads and prevent flex. The floor kit panels are manufactured from construction grade ply and finished in matching UV-resistant marine carpet. Part Number: RFH945 - RRP: $ Part Number: RFH RRP: $ Part Number: RFH RRP: $

10 NT Travel OUTBACK EXPERIENCE Part I Words by Jessica Vigar Photography by Offroad Images Driving to Wombunji Station 8

11 NT Travel Our dual-cab 79 Series LandCruiser slowly rolls to a stop. In front of us, three men clad head to toe in camoufl age climb out of their chop top 100 Series. We watch in silence as they unload rifles from the vehicle. The UHF crackles and a whispered instruction fills the otherwise dead-silent cab. Send the photographer. Michael Ellem from Offroad Images casts a nervous glance over his shoulder as he quietly gets out of our truck. We watch as he makes his way through the dense undergrowth and creeps down the hill and out of sight, following the freshly made tracks of the three hunters waiting by the edge of a creek. We wait in silence for what seems like an age. Suddenly, a gunshot rips through the silence. After a few moments, three more bangs explode in quick succession out of the bush. We don t move, waiting for an instruction of all clear. A canon-like gunshot, the loudest one yet, rolls over the hill. All clear. Karl s voice can be heard over the UHF. We start up the 4WD and begin manoeuvring through the thick tree line, apprehensive of what is waiting for us over the ridge. 9

12 NT Travel PEERING THROUGH THE RUNGS, WE SEE A SHIRTLESS, TATTOOED HULK OF A MAN WRESTLING A PACK OF MASSIVE DOGS INTO A PEN. Hunting Bufallo PREPPING TO SHOOT Two days earlier, the view through our windscreen was significantly different. My husband, Glenn, and I had picked up a PXII Ford Ranger from ARB Darwin, prepped with everything we d need for our trip into the wild west country of the outback Northern Territory. After spending the weekend shopping for props and supplies around town (we were keen to use the unique and wild scenery to sneak in some product photoshoots), we got to bed early, knowing we had a big week ahead of us. Michael Ellem from Offroad Images had spent his weekend proudly showing off his mighty 79 LandCruiser at the Eastern Creek Show and had jumped on a late-night flight to Darwin as soon as it had finished. Early Monday morning, we meet at the Ford Ranger and head out to Howard Springs, the temperature already pushing 38 C and signalling the coming wet season up north. We make a quick pit stop at BCF on the way so Mike can purchase a butane can for his Bialetti set-up (for those of you who haven t spent an extended period of time in the company of our photographer, he really likes his coffee). Driving through the rural suburban sprawl of Howard Springs, we arrive at a large gated property with a Goodhand Outback Experience laser-cut steel sign nailed to the front. Peering through the rungs, we see a shirtless, tattooed hulk of a man wrestling a pack of massive dogs into a pen. He waves at us as he jogs over to open the gate and let us in, introducing himself as Karl, owner of Goodhand Outback Experience. As the gate opens, we are greeted by Mangels (affectionately named after the famous adventurer Alby Mangels), a mastiff the size of a small horse. I ve still got some things to do, Karl says, pointing to the front door of his home. Go inside and check out the animals. Mike and I share a quizzical glance as we step out of the stifling heat and into the respite of Karl s air conditioned home. As we round the corner into the open plan living room, we grasp the meaning of animals. Surrounding us is the most astounding collection of hunting trophies I have ever seen. A mountain lion peers down at us from a rock mounted high on the wall; at the end of the hall, a hippo yawns wide and two giant buffaloes gaze across the lounge suite to where we are standing. Deer, banteng and crocodile skulls are proudly displayed around the room. Mangels lumbers in and heavily collapses on the cold tiles, undeterred by the countless animals staring down at him. 10

13 NT Travel Spring fed waterfall at camp a hippo yawns wide and two giant buffaloes gaze across the lounge suite CATTLE, CREEK CROSSINGS & CAMP After Karl has finished packing up his gear and preparing his property for his week-long absence, we head out towards his camp. Mike is with Karl, driving in his very impressive 79 Series luxury Cruiser (check out Karl s rig on page 15 for the details of this ultimate truck). Glenn and I follow in our Ranger. We drive out to Pine Creek to fill up both our fourbies and our bellies at the everdelicious Lazy Lizard Tavern. The drive out to Karl s camp takes around three hours and involves several creek crossings, plenty of rutted bull dust and unique and constantly changing scenery. About a third of the way, we reach the picturesque Daly River, a decent water crossing that laps the grille of our car as we carefully drive its concrete base. After passing through a number of gates, we ByteFence Anti-Malware Pro 5.7.0.0 Crack a sign signalling that we are entering Wombunji Station, a cattle station owned by a good friend of Karl s. During our drive, the Ranger s temperature gauge has been steadily displaying 39 C outside. All of a sudden, I notice the numbers start to drop. As the reading displays 24 C, we start thinking there must be some sort of electrical fault; that is, until the heavens open and we drive through a couple of hundred metres of heavy rainfall. Just as quickly as it began, it stops and the temperature steadily rises back to 39 C. Karl s voice crackles over Chris-PC CPU Booster 1.19.15 Crack + Serial Key {Latest 2021} UHF, informing us that this is rare and somewhat worrying. He recounts a story from two years earlier where they barely had a drop of rain at camp; however, a lot of rain in other areas meant the Daly River had risen exponentially. Karl, not realising until he actually got to the river on his way out of camp, spent two days stranded before being picked up by helicopter, returning with Hunting vehicles Goodhand guide Richie 11

Chasing Buffalo As we near camp, we cross some dry creek beds. Snaking out of sight, the smooth black rock of the river gives the area a prehistoric feel. Turning a final corner, we park in front of a large green and silver structure, the kitchen and dining room/bar. To the left are two tents and a large table surrounded by salt and skulls. To the right, a long track leads to a number of huts and buildings. We are greeted by the beautiful smiling face of Emma, the resident chef, emerging from the kitchen. At the time, we had no idea the gastronomical delights soon to be served up to us by this accomplished woman. Later in our stay, we would learn of Emma s impressive résumé. From cooking for a billionaire on a super yacht whilst sailing through Greece (her most notable guest on the yacht being none other than Bill Gates) to preparing culinary feasts whilst working in a chalet on the Route Blanche of Chamonix, France, she was trained in one of Gordon Ramsay s STRUGGLING TO LAUNCH HIS BOAT AND SWIMMING IN CROC-INFESTED WATERS WAS NOT AN EXPERIENCE HE WAS KEEN TO RELIVE. Goodhand Camp 12

15 NT Travel Goodhand Guide Pete having to fight greedy water monitors that surprise her in the kitchen many restaurants. This is Emma s first season working for Karl and she assures us that she will definitely be returning next year. It takes a very unique personality to be able to survive out in the middle of the nowhere, sometimes alone for days at a time whilst the rest of the crew are out chasing animals. Apart from having to fight greedy water monitors that surprise her in the kitchen while she s trying to work, Emma says she likes being alone and having Foxtel and wi-fi at camp certainly makes it a lot easier. Karl offers us a drink from the bar while Emma serves up a platter of cheeses, crackers and nuts. The rest of the crew are out with a client and as we wait for their return, Karl gives us a bit of history of the camp and his set-up. Karl says he really started getting serious about guiding hunts in In 2007, he separated from his then business partner and founded Goodhand Outback Experience. With a background and degree in Network Engineering and Computer Science, Karl combined his love for hunting and savvy tech skills to start filming and editing DVDs. In 2007, he started blowing up in the Chinese market, raising around six million dollars to put together a set of DVDs that resulted in raising tourism to the Northern Territory by 70 per cent. It was the biggest show on prime time TV in China for eight years running and advertisement space was selling for US$1,000 a second during his segments. The property Karl has this camp set up on is around 1.2 million acres in size and he says they only really hunt on about five per cent of it. As the light of the day begins to fade, a chop top 100 Series LandCruiser pulls up to camp and three very sweaty, dirty, tired hunters climb out. Pete and Richie are the two guides that have spent the day with a client, sneaking around in 40 C heat, stalking buffalo. Pete and Richie both hail from Victoria and have decades of hunting experience between them. The client, Bob, has flown all the way from Texas and whilst exhausted from both the punishing heat and terrain, he is all smiles as he recounts the adventures of the day. We all gratefully inhale the amazing dinner Emma has prepared for us and then head to bed. 13

16 NT Travel BOB BAGS HIS BUFFALO The next morning, we all meet for breakfast and then head out; Bob, Karl and Pete in the chop top and Glenn, Richie, Mike and me following close behind in a 70 Series. Driving to a number of creeks and watering holes, we stop several times after spotting buffalo in the distance. Richie explains to us that they might spend a week tracking and fi nding prize bulls before the clients arrive. They learn the patterns of the bulls movements and always have conservation of the population in mind, ensuring they leave entire areas alone for long periods of time to reduce their impact on animal activity and stress level. Karl spots a nice big bull and instructs the convoy to stop. After calling for Mike, we hear gunshots and Karl beckons us to their location over the UHF. The trees are tight and it takes some very talented manoeuvring by Richie to get us through to the group. As we pull up, we see a huge buffalo lying in the grass. Bob can t wipe the smile off his face; he d travelled over 14,000km for this moment and was visibly shaking with the adrenaline and delight. Bob had requested a European-style mounting for his trophy preparation, which Pete and Richie were very relieved with as it was pushing 40 C and this would be the quickest and easiest option. Karl explains to us that the buffalo was around 15 years old and had started to lose its chewing capacity in its teeth. A lot of bulls will grind their teeth down and eventually, will lose the ability to eat and pass away. We drive on to a nice shady spot by a creek to have lunch. Karl wanders down to the water and notices an entire buffalo carcass left from a previous hunt has been dragged under the water and stored beneath a log. A resident croc will be well fed for the next few weeks. Karl says that when the weather is not so harsh, they take their kills to the local crocodile farms; however, anything they do leave disappears very quickly, feeding the local pigs, dingoes and crocodiles. We drive back to camp, the mood amongst the entire group somewhat more relaxed and carefree. Bob got what he came for, job done, season over.

18 ARB Jack Base BACK TO BASE 16

19 ARB has developed a new multi-purpose Jack Base designed to work in tandem with ARB s Jack, as well as standard and X-treme versions of the Hi-Lift jack, that alleviates sinkage on soft ground for safer use. Manufactured in Australia from super tough high-density polyethylene, the new Jack Base has a rated load capacity of 7,000kg (15,400lb) and is finished in a high visibility safety orange. The Jack Base is designed specifically to work in tandem with ARB s Jack and is also compatible with Hi-Lift jack models. We tested it right up to 16 tonnes and we couldn t break it, says ARB Product Manager Ben Rieson of the new Jack Base. It passed with flying colours! And it s never going to be used past 16 tonnes ever! The Jack Base has a non-slip textured base on its bottom surface for added grip when jacking in soft and slippery terrain, and the top surface is designed specifically to lock in with Jack s wide rotatable foot. The design of the top surface also holds standard and X-treme Hi-Lift jacks in place to offer a secure platform for vehicle recovery situations or when simply jacking a vehicle for other purposes. When developing the Jack Base, we thought about how we could design a platform for use not only with various jacks but also for other purposes, adds Ben Rieson. The shape of the Jack Base, along with its comfortable integrated grab handle, makes it ideally suited to use as a rake when levelling uneven terrain or even as a wheel chock or jockey wheel receiver. Other features of the Jack Base include convenient leash attachment points for easy retrieval after use as well as several vehicle mounting options. The Jack Base features holes for locking pins, so it can be mounted on a TRED Pro mounting kit or on the shaft of a Hi-Lift jack with optional mounts, says Ben Rieson. You can put your ARB TRED Pros on top of your vehicle and then you can mount the Jack Base on top of the ARB TRED Pros they all stack up and lock through the pins. Alternatively, if you have your ARB TRED Pros mounted to the spare wheel on the back of your vehicle, the Jack Base can be mounted to them using optional TRED Pro extension pins. The Jack Base is a seriously tough piece of recovery equipment and ARB backs it with a two-year warranty. Part Number: RRP: $

20 ARB Jack Base ARB Jack When ARB created Jack, it essentially reinvented the mechanical farm jack using state-of-the-art design, engineering and materials. The mechanical farm jack is a handy device that can be used for many purposes including moving vehicles out of awkward situations, lifting them out of holes to fill in the void beneath the tyres or even as a bead breaker during tyre repairs. But mechanical farm jacks are inherently unstable, so ARB s engineers came up with a better solution in the form of Jack. ARB s Jack is a long-travel hydraulic jack with an extruded aluminium body and a hardened military grade nitride shaft. It combines the functionality of a mechanical jack with the ease of use and convenience of a hydraulic jack. Jack has a 2,000kg lifting capacity, which is almost double the safe working load limit of many mechanical farm jacks. External shelves in Jack s aircraft grade extruded 6061 T6 aluminium body allow the hook to be set at various heights without using up jacking travel, so it can be tailored for use with different vehicles and conditions. Other features of Jack include a wide rotatable foot that provides a stable base and preferred orientation for use on uneven ground, an ergonomically designed handle that can be operated in confined spaces, overload protection so as not to exceed working load limit, quick and safe lowering in case of unintended side movement and a safety stop on the lowering lever to immediately cease lowering if required. Jack offers up to 500mm of lifting travel and, weighing in at 10.5kg, it s lighter than traditional mechanical farm jacks. It s also more compact when compressed with a total length of just 890mm. 18

21 Toyota HiLux Commercial Bar Toyota Trade Ready With the arrival of the Toyota HiLux Rogue in early 2018 and the facelift SR and SR5 in August, ARB s team of engineers has been busy developing a new Commercial Bar to suit. While visually the new HiLux looks similar to previous models, small changes in the front of the vehicle have required plenty of new development in the design of the bull bar. Our products are always created for vehicle-specific application and the new HiLux range was no exception. Changes to the grille and bumper assembly have required a new top pan to be developed to ensure clearance for chassis-to-body movement. Whilst retaining the necessary access points for the winch, the surface area of the top pan has been reduced and to ensure strength, the engineers have increased this material to three millimetres thick. The Commercial bar is a combination style bar so will fit both winch and non-winch applications. For customers looking to fit a winch, the Commercial bar accommodates low-mount model electric winches up to 10,000lb. The Commercial bar is designed with twin jacking points located in the lower pan and two aerial brackets on the top of the centre tube. The bar includes ARB LED indicator and clearance lights with the provision for optional ARB fog lights. Finished in a satin black powder coat, with the option to colour-code, the ARB Commercial bar provides considerable frontal protection whilst achieving cost savings through simplified manufacturing processes.

22 The Lat-Long of it BY TRIP IN A VAN THE LAT-LONG OF IT ,

23 The Lat-Long of it REGION: FRASER ISLAND TRACK GRADE: Easy through to difficult SEASON: All year round DESTINATION: A tour of the hotspots POPULAR FOR: 4WDing, fishing, camping, family holidays, backpackers and adventure tours PERMITS NEEDED: Vehicle permit and camping permits (obtained from Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS)) The world s largest sand island off the coast of Hervey Bay, Queensland, has absolutely everything you could want for an adventure holiday with your mates, your missus or your family. There are 4WD tracks, beach driving and spectacular freshwater lakes that will blow your mind. The fishing is off the hook and there are so many accommodation options to choose from with houses for rent, resorts to indulge in and campsites galore scattered around the island. 21

24 The Lat-Long of it THE TRACKS Wondershare recoverit review If you do your research and drive the beach at low tide, it s pretty much a sandy highway with a speed limit of 80km per hour and it s a very easy drive even for the most novice of 4WDers. Just watch out for the freshwater creeks that run into the ocean as they can cause washouts in the beach and it can be hard to see as you re cruising the beach. INTERMEDIATE: If you tackle the beach at high tide, things can get a bit tougher. The sand can be very soft, deep and chopped up by a lot of vehicle traffic. With your tyre pressures dropped and some basic recovery gear like Tred Pros and a snatch strap, you should be fine. DIFFICULT: If you re after a challenge and wish to get to some of the more remote spots around Fraser Island, then there are a few tracks that will challenge your skills. The bypass track around Ngkala Rocks can be a bit gnarly. It s a mix of soft sand and rutted coffee rock that will get your coils flexing and a bit of wheels-up action. 22

25 The Lat-Long of it FISHING CAMPING You really are spoilt for choice with accommodation options over here. If you re not set up for self-sufficient camping, you can always stay at one of the two resorts on the island located at Kingfisher Bay and Eurong Beach. You can also hire private houses and units at a range of different locations around the island. For campers, the hardest part is deciding on which zone to camp in. Grab yourself a map, pick a spot and you can book online through the QPWS website. OUR CAMPSITE PICKS Marloo Bay Sandy Cape Awinya Creek Eurong Beach Resort ICONIC FRASER ISLAND HOTSPOTS Eli Creek Lake McKenzie Champagne Pools SS Maheno shipwreck Sandy Cape HOW TO GET THERE Fraser Island is located off the coast of Hervey Bay, which is around 280 kilometres north of Brisbane, Queensland. To get your vehicle over to Fraser, you will need to put it on the Manta Ray Barge from Inskip Point or the Fraser Island Ferry from River Heads in Hervey Bay. If you re heading over in peak holiday season, then it s a good idea to book your ferry and prepay your camping fees so you don t miss out. Known as one of the best fishing locations around Oz, Fraser Island is the perfect place for everyone from the kids to even the most the serious fisho! On the eastern side of the island, just find a nice deep gutter as you re driving along the beach and you ll have a good chance of hooking a dart, whiting, flathead or tailor. On the western side, there are a few creeks to try your luck in and it s also a more protected option if the weather is a bit wild on the surf side. SUGGESTED ROUTE If it s your first time to the island, you will want explore as much as you can and see everything, right? I know we did, which is why we swagged our way around the island in a bit of a loop. Remember, Fraser is the world s largest sand island, which means just a day trip over can be pretty full on! If you don t want to spend hours on end doing return trips along the same stretch of beach, it s best to plan a few campsites up the east coast to Sandy Cape and then a few spots on the west coast on your way back down. 23

26 ARB Awning & Light Kit Bright Idea 24

27 ARB Awning & Light Kit Shade when it s sunny and light when it gets dark. ARB s new awning and light kit gives you the best of both worlds. Just like at home, good quality lighting is in the ceiling and not the walls, ensuring the area is well lit from above and not in your eyes. The ARB awning and light kit incorporates an aluminium extruded LED light strip in the awning roof, giving you bright light when the sun goes down. The slim dimension and clever location of the light strip simplifies pack-up. The light doesn t need to be removed and can be rolled up with the awning, keeping everything together for your next adventure. The LED chips utilised in the light strip handle more heat than a standard strip light and are attached to an aluminium track for heat dissipation and sealed in a watertight resin. The awning light provides up to 1,200 lumens with a choice of either cool white or amber colour mode and is dimmable via a waterproof digital dimmer switch. Amber mode provides low bug attractant qualities and a comfortable late-night soft lighting with a current draw of one amp per hour. Powered by a fused cigarette lighter plug, the awning light comes with four additional metres of insulated waterproof cable and connectors, meaning it can be mounted to either side of your vehicle. Included in the kit is a handy storage bag for your cables when the awning is packed up and the light is not in use. ARB Awning Easy to mount and operate, the ARB retractable awnings fit onto the side of most roof racks or roof bars and store neatly in a PVC bag or sturdy aluminium case for immediate use on arrival. Specifically designed for harsh off road conditions and coming complete with hardware and comprehensive instructions, each awning is rugged yet lightweight and will provide fast, convenient shade and protection from the elements.

28 Suzuki Jimny Jimny Lands Down Under One of the most hotly anticipated new 4x4 vehicle launches of the year, the new Suzuki Jimny, has finally landed in Australia and fans of the pint-sized off roader won t be disappointed. The new Jimny is offered in one trim level at $23,990 for the five-speed manual variant and $25,990 for the four-speed auto. The Jimny stays true to its roots, retaining an old-school separate body-on-chassis architecture and live axles front and rear with coil springs. It also sticks with a familiar four-cylinder petrol engine, although capacity is up to 1.5 litres from the previous generation s 1.3 litres. While peak power and torque outputs are modest the 1.5-litre engine claims 75kW of power at 6,000rpm and 130Nm of torque at 4,000rpm the Jimny Apowersoft Watermark Remover 1.4.9.1 Crack Activation Code weighs 1,075kg (+15kg in auto guise), so on road performance should be better than you d expect. Both manual and automatic variants feature a part-time 4WD system with a two-speed transfer case, which Suzuki now calls Allgrip Pro 4WD. In 2H, drive is directed to the rear wheels while 4H can be selected on the fly at speeds of up to 100km/h. The Jimny must be stationary to select 4L. 26

31 Suzuki Jimny Thanks to its low-range gearing and traction control system, the Jimny offers genuine off road capability. And as you d expect of a vehicle with such short overhangs, approach and departure angles are impressive at 37 and 49 respectively, while ramp-over angle is 28 and there s a handy 210mm of ground clearance with the standard suspension and 195/80R15 tyres fitted. Other off road armament includes Hill Descent Control and Hill Hold Control. Suzuki has beefed up the Jimny s chassis, adding two extra cross members and a central X member, which results in greater torsional rigidity for better off road performance and improved safety. The new Jimny comes standard with active safety features including lane departure warning, six airbags, high beam assist, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), reversing camera and LED headlights. There s no doubt that the new Jimny is still an exceptionally small vehicle, with a 2,250mm wheelbase, an overall length of just 3,645mm, a width of 1,645mm and a height of 1,705mm, but the cabin is larger compared with the previous model, now boasting a modest 377 litres of cargo space with the rear seats folded down (up by 53 litres). Standard equipment on the new Jimny includes climate control air conditioning, cruise control, a seven-inch multimedia system with satnav, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and Bluetooth connectivity, and privacy glass. The new Jimny has a combined fuel consumption figure of 6.8L/100k, which gives a safe touring range of around 550km from the standard 40-litre fuel tank. ARB EQUIPMENT Suzuki enlisted the help of ARB to produce a static display of a kitted-out Jimny called Project JBOX for the Australian media launch of the vehicle. Project JBOX offers a glimpse of the accessories ARB is working on for Jimny and for display purposes it was fitted with an ARB bull bar, Warn 8,000lb winch, ARB rock sliders, ARB roof rack, OME suspension and 235/75R15 BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2 tyres. Suzuki 'Project JBOX' vehicle shown with protoype products While ARB has been hard at work fitting these accessories to Project JBOX, the engineering teams still have plenty of development work ahead of them to develop a complete range of accessories to suit the new 2019 Suzuki Jimny. 29

32 Suzuki Jimny The bull bar fitted to Project JBOX is essentially a small version of a Summit bar, explains ARB Product Manager Steve Sampson. The vehicle only arrived at ARB a week or so prior to Christmas so the bull bar was probably put together in two weeks. It has a lot of the Summit bar features like the grille and the split pan, but it doesn t have the buffers because there s not the physical space to fit them in there. The cover straps and tube work are based on the Summit bar, but we ve had to take out some features because they don t work on this particular vehicle. It s got a recessed winch control mount for an 8,000lb Warn winch, which is plenty of capacity as the vehicle weighs next to nothing, continues Steve. ARB also fitted a set of rock sliders to Project JBOX as well as an existing roof rack. It s a standard rack and standard foot kit, but we re going to develop a modelspecific foot kit. The OME suspension system fitted to Project JBOX will also undergo much more development work before it s released to the public. From a suspension point of view, FL Studio Producer Free Download built a vehicle to be put on static display for Suzuki, explains OME Lead Engineer Stuart Fooks. This used off-the-shelf springs and shock absorbers that achieved the ride height targets we were looking for but, at this stage, we still haven t driven the vehicle. While the current springs and shock absorbers fit, our intention is to develop a new suspension system for the 2019 Jimny, continues Stuart. To do this, we need to refine damper lengths and look at the amount of travel we can get out of the vehicle, and the amount of lift, and we need to consider castor correction, brake line lengths and various other factors. While the existing suspension components physically fit the new vehicle, what we d like to do is develop some new dampers using our standard Nitrocharger Sport architecture, which has a 35mm piston and shock bore. You can keep an eye out on for upcoming Suzuki Jimny accessories on the ARB website, ARB Facebook page and upcoming issues of 4x4 Culture. 30

34 WA Travel The Kimberley Big Wet Words and Photography by Steve Fraser Lake Argyle

35 WA Travel The Kimberley is a long way from anywhere else in Australia. And when it rains, it really rains. Some parts of the Kimberley enjoy more than 1,200mm of rain annually. In summer, it s bloody hot and sticky; just about everything that crawls and swims can kill you and once you head off the main roads, you d better be self-sufficient because it gets rough, seriously rough and help can be days away. That being said, there is a reason it s one of the most incredible regions in Australia. Iconic locations like Mitchell Plateau, Kalumburu, Pentecost River, El Questro, the Bungle Bungles and the Gibb River Road are just a few. I ve been to the region a number of times over the years and, like the majority of people, my experiences have always been in the dry season. But not this time. BY AIR OR BY LAND? I decided to photograph the beauty of the area when it s at its magnificent best in the heart of the big wet. This means late February and early March. Given the heat and the amount of rainfall, this adds a few challenges. The first one is that a lot of the 4WD tracks are flooded so access is very limited. But we have a mate, Paul, who lives in the region and owns a helicopter, which he likes to remind me is the ultimate 4WD. The plan was to fly from Perth to Kununurra, hire a decent 4WD to get to as many remote spots as possible and then, when the road turned to a river, get the helicopter to do the hard yards. My good mate and number one photographic assistant, Mark, joined me again on this trip. He s always great company and you don t want to be out the back of the Kimberley on your own, just in case it turns pear-shaped. The fi rst thing that hits you when you arrive in Kununurra is the heat and humidity. It s a touch over 40 C and about 99 per cent humidity it was going to be a sticky week. Let me tell you, they breed the locals tough up here. Living in these conditions is not easy. I was pleased to discover the hire vehicle was a mine spec Prado it s always nice to get a proper 4WD with air conditioning. I know I m getting soft. 33

36 WA Travel When the first light hits the mountain ranges, there is nowhere on earth like it. It s a sight you will never forget. SOARING ABOVE GOD S COUNTRY The next morning, it was a 5.00am start straight out to my friend Paul s farm. Just as the sun hit the horizon, we pulled the helicopter out of the shed and we were ready for lift-off. I love photographing out of helicopters and part of this love is seeing the world from a different angle. The other part is the adrenalin rush of having the doors off, harnessed up with the wind in your hair. I forgot to mention to Mark (who d never been up in a helicopter before) that I always like to have the doors removed. It s much better for getting great shots but not so good for a first-timer. He handled it like a pro though and was soon smiling from ear to ear as we approached the Cockburn Ranges. This truly is God s own country. When the first light hits the mountain ranges, there is nowhere on earth like it. It s a sight you will never forget. Those red colours can only be found in Oz and, added to the rugged landscape, all I can say is, Welcome to the Kimberley. After a few photos of the ranges and a bit of reconnaissance of the local tracks, it was obvious that we weren t going to get too far in the Prado. Just about every creek and river was in flood. It s fair to say it had been a great wet season. We pointed the helicopter north towards Wyndham and the tidal mudflats. We timed it just right; it was low tide and the incredible patterns formed by the giant tides made for the perfect photograph. From above, the mud textures looked much more like tree roots than a tidal plain. A couple of hours later, we were back on the ground, pumped from an incredible morning. It was time to come up with a plan for the next week or so. It was obvious that it was almost impossible to get to the best spots this time of year by 4WD, so I teed up with Paul to take the helicopter up every day. 34

37 WA Travel Pentacost storm GIBB RIVER ROAD Later that day, we loaded up the Prado and Mark and I headed out on the Gibb River Road. I hoped we could make it all the way to the Pentecost River crossing for sunset. In the dry, this is the easiest part of the Gibb River Road but nothing is easy up here when it s flooded. We encountered a few river crossings and a couple of large washed out sections of road but nothing too challenging. It wasn t long before we approached the ranges at the turn-off to El Questro, which is closed during the wet season. If you are planning a trip during the wet, make sure you do your homework. We arrived at the Pentecost River crossing with plenty of time to spare. The river was about as swollen as it gets and no one was getting across unless they had a boat. A flat top tow truck with a Nissan Patrol on the back of it was on the far side of the river. I reckon he was in for a seriously long wait and a very expensive tow. (As it turned out, I came back a week later and he was still sitting there waiting for the river to go down ouch!) Time seems to stand still in the Kimberley. There is no wi-fi or phone signal in many parts of the region. (I carry a sat phone for emergencies.) My only constraints are being at locations for sunrise and sunset shots. I love the feeling of getting away from it all. Up in the Kimberley, it s simply about enjoying the timelessness of this ancient land. Mark decided it was the perfect opportunity to drop a line in and see what was biting. I found a rocky single track that follows a ridge line and decided this could lead to the perfect location for a sunset shot (plus, it was a chance to try out the Prado). After a few kilometres of rocky climbing and descending, which the Prado ate with ease, I had my location. I set up the camera gear and waited. An hour later, the Kimberley turned on Chris-PC CPU Booster 1.19.15 Crack + Serial Key {Latest 2021} show to remember. A late afternoon thunderstorm started to roll in around sunset and, for about fifteen minutes, the planets aligned. The setting sun danced on the pouring rain to create a pretty special moment. Mark didn t get a bite so we packed up and headed back to camp spam for dinner again! Bungles Bungles I reckon he was in for a seriously long wait and a very expensive tow. King River Wyndam 35

38 WA Travel LOVELY LAKES We decided that for the rest of the week it was best to get the chopper up first thing in the morning when it was cooler and head out in the 4WD later in the day. So, the next morning, we fired up the chopper at sunrise and headed for Lake Argyle. Lake Argyle, a man-made lake that opened in 1971, is often described as the jewel of the Kimberley. During the nineties, the wall was raised six metres, doubling its capacity. The lake is just over a thousand square kilometres in area. Whether you visit by car or are lucky enough to fly over it, the lake is an incredible sight. The crystal blue expanse of fresh water contrasts with the outback red hues of the land surrounding it. At first light, it was stunning and it is something I will never forget. Napp Springs RISKING LIFE AND LIMB The next day, we got a very early start and drove up to Wyndham for sunrise. The destination was the well-known Five Rivers Lookout. At 330 metres above sea level, you get an incredible view of the King, Ord, Durack, Forrest and Pentecost Rivers as they flow into Cambridge Gulf. It s a really great way to welcome a new day, although I will say it s a tough spot to photograph. The sheer vastness of the location makes it a challenge. After a quick breakfast in Wyndham, we headed back to Kununurra and it was time to take to the skies again. I had my heart set on getting into some of the narrow gorges and getting a few unique images, so Paul s flying skills would be tested. It didn t take long to locate a couple of remote gorges that were just what I had in mind. When we did a flyover before the first pass into the gorge, it felt like you could reach out and touch the ancient red rock walls. We were just above the tree canopy, perfect for photography but tough on the chopper. It was around 44 C and hovering in these conditions sent the chopper motor towards the red zone. It was time to land and give the helicopter, and the pilot, a rest. Mark s enthusiasm seemed to have subsided a little since the first day as we squeezed between a few trees and landed near a river bed. It was at that point that Paul mentioned that was about as tight as he had ever flown some days it s just good to be alive. After a spectacular morning photographing from the air, Mark and I decided to head back out in the Prado to experience the lake up close and personal. Like most parts of the Kimberley, you realise how vast this place is. The scale is simply breathtaking. Spending time in cities tends to make me feel a bit claustrophobic. Everything can feel like it s on top of you, so when you head out in the bush, the vast spaces and secluded locations have a way of letting us breathe again and recharge the batteries. I am definitely a country boy at heart. Mark s fishing efforts hadn t worked out as planned, so we headed for the Pumphouse Restaurant in Kununurra for a feed of barramundi and a catch up with some local friends. The restaurant was the original Ord Pump Station on the banks of Lake Kununurra. The food is amazing and the added bonus is that you can walk out on the balcony after dinner. A big floodlight highlights about 30 to 40 crocodiles staring back at you probably not the best spot to go for a swim. Over dinner, we discussed a couple of secret spots Paul had flown over on previous adventures. We planned to head out into the Northern Territory, then back across the Bungle Bungles exploring some remote areas very few people will ever access. 36

39 WA Travel Kenja Blue It was around 44 C and hovering in these conditions sent the chopper motor towards the red zone. Wyndham Mudflats Pentacost storm A PHOTOGRAPHER S DELIGHT As we crossed the Northern Territory border, the amazing amount of rain was obvious. The bush below was green, the sunrise lit up the valley and, in the eloquent words of John Williamson, it s an almighty sight to see. We landed near a very remote swimming hole. Reaching the swimming hole involved a climb down a 10-metre rope and a clamber over rocks. The reward is a swim in crystal clear, cool water. The local Aboriginal people have used the swimming hole for centuries, so we treated it with the utmost respect, making sure to leave no trace of our visit. The next destination, located about 250 kilometres west of Kununurra, was the gorgeous Bungle Bungle Range. The incredible orange and black sandstone domes rise about 300 metres above the landscape and are one of the world s most fascinating geological landmarks. During the dry season, you can drive into some incredible parts of the region, featuring amazing swimming holes, gorges and incredible chasms. In the wet, all the tracks are closed and the best way to view it is from the air. There are a number of air charter companies that fly over and it s worth splashing out a few bucks and treating yourself. We spent an hour or so flying over the region and I was in photographic heaven. Every direction you look at is incredible and I m not sure that it gets much better than this. After a few more days, a few more trips up in the chopper, and searching out as many back roads as the Prado could access, it was time to head home. Whilst I won t miss the heat, I sure will miss the vast open spaces of the Kimberley. If you are planning a trip, add a couple of weeks more than you think you will need. It s a long way to travel there and you won t regret spending the extra time in God s own country. 37

40 ARB TPMS Pressure Check A Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is a vital safety device, as well as great insurance against damaged tyres, and the new ARB TPMS provides more flexibility and functionality than any other unit on the market. ARB has developed a new customisable TPMS that features innovative on and off road modes, trailer functionality, a choice of internal or external sensors and compatibility with both a new plug-in display module and the advanced LINX system (to be released later this year*). There s no doubt that a TPMS is an invaluable addition to any 4WD vehicle, providing critical real-time tyre information to the driver, as well as visual and audio alerts should tyre pressures change or tyre temperature exceed preset levels. By detecting a problem and alerting you before complete tyre deflation, a TPMS is not only a potential life-saving device but also a money-saving device, as a small leak can be easily repaired but a fully defl ated tyre can suffer irreparable damage. In fact, just one tyre saved can equate to the initial purchase price of the TPMS. 38

41 ARB TPMS While there are many TPMS devices on the market, the new ARB system incorporates several unique features that make it more flexible and easy to use, as well as customisable to suit the specific needs of individual 4WDers. The ARB TPMS is available with either external sensors or internal sensors and a plug-in display or upcoming LINX compatibility, plus there s an optional repeater available for monitoring more tyres, making the system ideally suited to those who tow a trailer or caravan. With the previous generation ARB TPMS, it used to monitor four tyres and that was it, but Separate Components the new system monitors up to nine tyres, explains ARB Product Manager Ben Rieson. The internal sensor kit comes standard with fi ve Schrader sensors that are fi tted in place of the standard valve stems, allowing monitoring of the four active tyres as well as the vehicle s spare tyre. The external sensor kit comes with four ARB-designed sensors that simply screw on in place of the valve stem s dust caps, so can easily be moved between tyres if the spare needs to be used. As the system features LINX compatibility, the sensors are sold separately to either a LINX communications (COMS) box or a new TPMS display that simply plugs into the vehicle s 12-volt accessory outlet. The standard internal sensor kit includes fi ve sensors and the external kit includes four sensors, explains Ben Rieson. The new system is designed to work with LINX so we ve split everything out into separate components; you buy the sensors and then you can either buy the display to go with them or the COMS box for monitoring the tyres via LINX. This means those who already have a LINX in their vehicle can just buy the sensors because they don t need a separate display. 39

42 ARB TPMS Air Systems TPMS Display The new TPMS display can monitor up to nine tyres and features on and off road modes, as well as a trailer only mode. The display, which simply plugs into the vehicle s 12-volt accessory outlet, has both visual and audio alarms to alert the driver to tyre leakage, low and high pressures, high temperatures and low battery voltage. There are user-adjustable ranges that can be set for each axle and the alarm will activate when pressure varies by more than 25 per cent above or below the set pressure. The advantage of being able to set different thresholds per axle is for vehicles that run different pressures front to rear depending on load. Despite its compact size, the display can monitor more than four tyres simultaneously. When you re monitoring eight tyres, the display will scroll through them, explains Ben Rieson. First, it will show the four tyres on the vehicle and then, when it shows the trailer tyres, it will signal Trailer on the display. Likewise, if it s monitoring a spare tyre, the four tyres in use will show up and then Spare will be highlighted and the display will show the pressure for the spare tyre. The new system also has an on road mode and an off road mode, says Ben Rieson. When you re on road, you have your tyres set to, say, 34psi and then as soon as you hit the beach, what you can do is press a button to change into off road mode, at which point the display goes orange and the system recognises the preset off road tyre pressures. If you do a bit of beach driving, you might have set the off road pressures to 16psi, so just press the button twice to access off road mode and the TPMS will recognise 16psi as being the correct pressure, and then you just keep on driving. The off road mode provides obvious time-saving benefits, explains Ben. With the previous generation TPMS, when you dropped your tyre pressures to drive off road, you had to go in and reset every single tyre threshold to prevent the alarm from going off, which could be very time consuming, especially if you were towing a trailer and you had to adjust the settings for up to eight tyres. With the new one, after you let your tyres down, just double-press to access off road mode and away you go. The display has had a fair bit of work done in the back-end to update it, which has made it thicker, so we ve added in a welcome additional USB port, adds Ben Rieson. The display can be customised to show pressures and temperatures in the preferred units (psi/bar/c /F ) and it incorporates two 2.1A USB ports, allowing other devices such as smartphones to be plugged in for charging purposes. 40

43 ARB TPMS Trailer Tyres Safe Investment Those who want to monitor trailer tyres, whether using the new display or LINX, can purchase additional internal or external sensors in twin packs, as well as a Trailer Repeater. To monitor trailer tyres, you need the optional trailer kit, which comes with a Trailer Repeater that extends the coverage up to 30 metres so you get a stable signal from the trailer wheels to the TPMS display or the LINX COMS box. The repeater is mounted on the trailer s A-frame and that repeats the signals from the trailer s tyre sensors to the head unit. The Trailer Repeater can be either connected to the vehicle s power supply with an optional hardwire kit or it can be run on two AA batteries that will provide up to 540 hours of vehicle operation. The repeater also features auto-connect and wake-up, is rated to IP67 for water immersion and dust resistance, and is on road and off road mode compatible. Importantly, there s no need to reprogram the TPMS if the trailer is disconnected as the system checks for the presence of the trailer sensors on start-up and will auto-connect on start-up as required. There s also a trailer only mode for vehicles with a factory standard TPMS, adds Ben Rieson. If you only want to monitor trailer tyres, you just need the display [or LINX COMS box], the repeater and the required number of trailer sensors, and then it will monitor only the trailer tyres and won t false alarm because it won t be trying to locate non-existent vehicle sensors. There s no doubt that a TPMS is one of the best investments any 4WDer can make, not only as a safety device, but also to help prevent potentially expensive tyre damage. With features such as on and off road modes, trailer only mode, the ability to monitor up to nine tyres with a choice of internal or external sensors, and compatibility with the new TPMS display as well as LINX, the new ARB TPMS is the most effective and customisable device of its type on the market. *Compatibility with the ARB LINX system will be available from mid

44 Long-Range Frontier Tank Within Range Heading into the touring season, many 4WD adventurers will be poring over maps, carefully planning their routes and calculating distances between fuel stops. In many cases, these distances will exceed the vehicle s safe touring range, especially if fully laden, towing a trailer and/or driving in difficult off road terrain. The only solution to this dilemma is to carry extra fuel. If you think you ll only be a few kilometres shy of making the distance between fuel stops, you could always pack a jerry can or two, but you ll have to find somewhere safe to store them, which can eat into valuable cargo space. In the case of 4x4 wagons, jerry cans need to be carried on the rear of the vehicle or up on the roof, and when full they are heavy and not easy to handle. For those who drive 4x4 utes, jerry cans can be carried in the tub but they need to be kept well away from potential ignition sources, such as electrical equipment including portable fridges. Manual handling of fuel in jerry cans can also be a messy and potentially dangerous procedure, and can result in fuel contamination in dusty and/or wet conditions. The best (and safest) way to extend the touring range of your vehicle is to replace the inadequate original equipment fuel tank with a larger capacity long-range tank. This solution not only results in vastly improved touring range but it also eliminates the need to manually handle fuel and it ensures extra fuel is carried down low in the vehicle where its weight won t have a negative effect on vehicle handling. 42

45 Long-Range Frontier Tank 43

46 Long-Range Frontier Tank "One-piece construction means there are no welds or seams, resulting in exceptional strength." ARB FRONTIER TANKS Since introducing them in 2015, ARB has expanded the range of Frontier Diesel fuel tanks to now include some 18 models of 4x4 wagons and utes, with fuel capacities ranging from 112 litres to 180 litres depending on vehicle application. ARB Frontier fuel tanks are manufactured from a durable roto-moulded cross-linked polymer that s lighter than steel but is tough enough to handle impacts without damage. This construction method allows for a singlepiece construction that s configured to the shape of the underside of specific vehicle models, so designers can create intricate shapes to maximise fuel capacity. Frontier tanks are fitted using existing vehicle mounting points and they utilise a non-rigid mounting system that allows for movement of the tank within the vehicle s chassis. Furthermore, one-piece construction means there are no welds or seams, resulting in exceptional strength. Other features include a CNC-machined metal plate that accommodates a positive fitment of the fuel pump module and, in most applications, the vehicle s OE fuel Chris-PC CPU Booster 1.19.15 Crack + Serial Key {Latest 2021} module is retained. There s also a fully machined filler neck and a breather with one-way valve to prevent fuel leakage in the event of a vehicle rollover. RANGE INCREASE So just how much more range can you expect to achieve by fitting a Frontier tank? In the case of the Isuzu MU-X, for example, fitting a 112-litre Frontier tank provides an increased capacity of 47 litres over the standard 65-litre fuel tank, which in turn increases the vehicle s touring range from around 800km up to more than 1,400km (based on MU-X s ADR combined fuel consumption figure of 7.9L/100km). In the case of a current model Toyota HiLux, fi tment of a Frontier tank increases fuel capacity from 80 litres to a whopping 140 litres, potentially increasing touring range from just over 900km to more than 1,600km (based on HiLux dual-cab 4x4 auto s ADR combined fuel consumption figure of 8.5L/100km). Increased range as outlined above Chris-PC CPU Booster 1.19.15 Crack + Serial Key {Latest 2021} many of Australia s most iconic off road adventures achievable without the need to carry extra jerry cans. Of course, there are other advantages to fitting a long-range fuel tank, including the need for fewer fuel stops and increased ability to pick and choose when and where to fill up, such as when the fuel price cycle is at its lowest. 44

49 The Savannah Way Part II Words and Photography by Justin Lorrimer Trip in a Van We continue Trip in a Van s epic adventure through the Savannah Way where things start to get rough!

50 Australian Travel Normanton to Leichardt Falls So this is where we reckon the real Savannah Way starts. The dirt! From Normanton, you take the turn-off towards Burketown and things really start to get remote. The first thing you ll hit will be the Burke & Wills monument to gain some history about these explorers from the early days. It s amazing what they achieved with such limited resources. We were headed for a free camp that we d heard a lot about called Leichardt Falls. A gorgeous free camp set on a clifftop overlooking the Leichardt River. There was no water running over the falls while we were there but it s a beautiful and atmospheric setting with magical lagoon views. We chilled here for the afternoon and soaked up yet another magical sunset in front of the campfire. Burketown the Barramundi Capital of Australia! We cruised into Burketown and hit up the bakery to grab ourselves a coffee. It s also worth checking out the Burketown Road Kill Butcher to grab some great T-bones. We bought a few, which we chucked on the Ziggy later that arvo. Delicious! We decided to head out to the Albert River free camp, which is about 20 minutes out of town. After driving through a small gate on the left, we were on nothing but mud flats! It s a bit nerve-racking towing a 2.8-tonne van across tidal mudflats, but we drove for around eight kilometres to get to our campsite and only crossed one boggy patch that took a bit of right boot and low range to get through. There is service out here so you can book your site online at It cost us $35 for the night. This includes your $25 fishing licence and $10 for camping. We set up on the bank overlooking the river and Justin got straight into fishing. We cranked up a campfire and watched another amazing sunset. We really were being spoilt with these amazing outback sunsets. 48

51 Australian Travel IT S A BIT NERVE-RACKING TOWING A 2.8-TONNE VAN ACROSS TIDAL MUDFLATS Driving Through the Gates of Hell The drive from Burketown to Hells Gate Roadhouse is a sealed road all the way. Woohoo! When we arrived, we were surprised to see so much grass. There s plenty of room to camp out the back. They also have a cafe, but maybe give the coffee a miss! It s only a pod machine with long-life milk and they charge $5! Yuck! We parked up in the unpowered section for $26 (kids free). It s a nice stop with plenty of other travellers passing through. The bar does a happy hour of an afternoon and the mechanic, Timmy, does a fire twirling show at night. If you re keen to push on, there is a good free camp called Hahn Creek Billabong only 25 kilometres further down the road. 49

52 Australian Travel Hitting the Rough Stuff THE ROUGH STUFF CONTINUED RELENTLESSLY AND IN SOME PARTS WE WERE DOWN TO JUST 10KM/H. Once we left Hells Gate, it was a 320-kilometre test of our corrugation endurance! The stretch of dirt road hit us with some wicked rough stuff and we really started to question our decision to tow the van along this section of road. The rough stuff continued relentlessly and in some parts we were down to just 10km/h. We made it to the border, crossing into the Northern Territory, and eventually the road eased up just a bit. We had our tyres down all round to 26psi and were managing well doing about 80km/h. There are a few free camps along this stretch but we decided to smash out the rough stuff and make it through to Borroloola. Driving into the town of Borroloola is certainly nothing spectacular but you will definitely be happy to see some black top, even if it s only for a few kilometres. The caravan and Mazda BT-50 performed awesomely and we didn t have any issues other than a bit of dust through some vents in the van. We stayed at the caravan park here at the Loola, in the unpowered section for $25. You ll probably be needing to stock up on a few supplies by now, so head to the Malandari Store for some groceries. Be prepared for some outrageous prices but this is your last chance before Lorella Springs to stock up. There are very limited supplies at Lorella Springs and what they do have is 10 times more expensive than Borroloola so load up! Top End Fishing Heaven King Ash Bay was our next stop, a fishing village and caravan park that gets overrun with a plague of the silver-haired generation at this time of year (just joking, oldies). The trek out here from Borroloola is mostly bitumen except for the last 30 kilometres, which is pretty corrugated. However, a grader does maintain this road at times so you might get lucky and have a smooth run in. Compared to the rough stuff from Hells Gate though, this road is bliss! There is plenty of riverside camping at King Ash Bay and powered sites are also available. There are some great facilities with happy hour and a good feed on offer at Groper s Bar & Grill. There s also a terrific boat ramp for those lucky enough to have a boat and plenty of people around to have a beer with! We camped in the unpowered section for $22.50 and kids under 14 are free. 50

53 Australian Travel Get Lost On the way into Lorella, we were checking our trusty WikiCamps app to see what else was around and we saw there were a heap of good National Park sites between the turn-off to Lorella Springs and Roper Bar in the Limmen National Park. So as a last minute decision, we decided to go and check one out! The first camp was only 12 kilometres from the turn-off to Lorella and it s a deadset pearler! The Southern Lost City has striking sandstone formations that are definitely a sight to see. There are fire pits, spacious areas to pull up in, picnic tables, toilets and a beautiful sunset as always! The campground is superbly maintained and cheap as chips at $7.70 for the family. Pull on your runners or hiking boots (or thongs if you re like Justin) and take the walk around the Southern Lost City. The walk only takes around an hour and is well worth it! Minitool power data recovery download s an easy walk through tall, beautiful pillars with a lookout at the halfway point, giving you a great view of the landscape that surrounds you. It s pretty epic! From here, you have a few choices. You can head into Lorella Springs and have an amazing experience exploring or you can keep heading west through Roper Bar and then onto Mataranka and beyond. That s the end of the Savannah Way for now. Next time, we ll bring you back from the west to meet up where we left off at Lorella Springs. Cheers and enjoy! Now that you ve made it to Lorella Springs, check out 4x4 Culture Issues 52 and 53 for ARB s two-part feature on this thousand acre paradise. 51

54 Ford Ranger PXIII 52

55 Ford Ranger PXIII Revised Ranger When Ford updated its hugely popular Ranger ute late last year, it not only added the Raptor s 2.0-litre bi-turbo-diesel engine and 10-speed auto to the line-up, but also revised the suspension and introduced class-leading active safety features on higher grade models. The major OE changes to the Ranger PXIII suspension is the relocation and stiffening of the front anti-roll bar, which Ford says minimises body roll when cornering, and therefore allows for fitment of a softer spring rate for improved ride comfort. As a result, ARB s OME engineers have developed a range of new suspension options to suit the Ranger PXIII. The Ranger Wildtrak now comes standard with a raft of new safety features and these are also available as part of an optional Technology Pack on Ranger XLT. This package includes Inter-Urban Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Vehicle Detection and Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist/ Lane Departure Warning and Traffic Sign Recognition. Revised ARB bull bars have been developed for compatibility with these new active safety features. 53

56 Ford Ranger PXIII With so many changes to the front suspension design, ARB s team of engineers have redesigned the OME Nitrocharger suspension package OME NITROCHARGER SPORT In addition to relocating the sway bar on the front end of the Ranger PXIII, Ford also changed the location of the front bump stops, from between the lower control arm and the chassis to the shock absorber itself. This results in more load going through the shock absorber under full compression, so Ford increased the size of the lower bush significantly, as well as the size of the bolt that goes through it. With so many changes to the front suspension design, ARB s team of engineers have redesigned the OME Nitrocharger suspension package for Ranger PXIII, and they re also close to finalising a new BP-51 package to suit the vehicle. We had demand for an OME Nitrocharger suspension product for the Ranger PXIII as soon as it was released, from private and fleet customers, and we have been able to develop a package to suit the vehicle very quickly, says OME Lead Engineer Stuart Fooks. That meant development of a bigger bush, with a bigger bolt to go through it, and there were also several changes to the damper itself. We are able to reuse the OE bump stop, continues Stuart, which is taken off the OE shock absorber and relocated to the shaft of the OME shock absorber. We have retuned the shock absorber so that its compressed length is around the same as the OE compressed length but in terms of travel, the OME shock is longer, which results in more travel to work as a package with the longer springs and the amount of lift the kit provides. The OME engineers have also refined front spring rates to specifically suit the beefed-up sway bar of the Ranger PXIII. As with previous OME Ranger suspension systems, a wide range of spring rates are available to perfectly suit vehicles with different front-end loads, such as vehicles with no accessories fitted, vehicles with an alloy bull bar, vehicles with a steel bull bar and vehicles with a bull bar, winch and driving lights. 54

57 Ford Ranger PXIII The Nitrocharger Sport rear suspension package for Ranger PXIII remains unchanged. We ve got the same spring and shock absorber options that we had for the Ranger PXII, says Stuart. There are specific packages designed to suit vehicles that usually carry a load of between 0-300kg, 300kg to 600kg or 600kg and up. BP-51 As with Nitrocharger Sport development, the OME team has also had to revise the design of BP-51 to suit the Ranger PXIII. Because the bottom bush is now bigger and the bolt size has gone up to an M20, we ve increased the size of the spherical bearing in the bottom of the BP-51, explains Stuart Fooks. We ve also developed new spring rates and we ve had to develop our own bump stop because the BP-51 is supplied as a completely assembled unit. While you could achieve the damping required using the adjustment on the existing BP-51, you d be coming towards the top of the adjustment range with a full load on board. With a bit more piston valving in it, there s more opportunity for adjustment for those customers who are at the top end of the payload spectrum, especially for customers with a GVM upgrade, says Stuart. At the time of writing, BP-51 development for Ranger PXIII was nearly complete, with pre-production processes almost underway and a view to schedule production in April. As with Nitrocharger Sport development, the OME team has also had to revise the design of BP-51 to suit the Ranger PXIII. Stuart says the OME team has also been investigating a heavier-valved BP-51 option for the rear of the Ranger to suit users who regularly carry a heavy load. We can fit the same BP-51 as previously developed for Ranger and it offers the full range of adjustment in compression and rebound. We re also looking at the abelssoft checkdrive to do a heavier-valved BP-51 that still has that adjustment in compression and rebound, but with the valving starting with more damping for those with a GVM upgrade or who are constantly near GVM. 55

58 Ford Ranger PXIII The location of the radar module meant we had to make quite a few design changes to the bar itself" 56

59 Ford Ranger PXIII SUMMIT BAR AND SUMMIT SAHARA BAR Many of the new active safety features on Ranger PXIII rely on information provided by a radar module located at the front of the vehicle, so ARB has revised the design of the Summit bar and Summit Sahara bar to ensure compatibility with these new systems. The location of the radar module meant we had to make quite a few design changes to the bar itself because the previous Summit bar s recessed winch control box mount didn t work with the Ranger s new centrally mounted radar, explains ARB Product Manager Steve Sampson. Unlike the previous Summit and Summit Sahara bars for Ranger, the new PXIII Summit bar no longer has a built-in recessed winch control box mount. Instead, the control box mount is now a separate bolt-in component that is situated slightly higher to allow for compatibility with the OE radar unit. The new bolt-in control box mount leaves space for the radar in its central location, says Steve. It also means the full range of OE adjustment for the radar is retained as the stance of the vehicle can change depending on factors such as load on board, suspension fitted and tyre size, sometimes you need to adjust the face of the radar so it s perpendicular to the ground rather than nose down or nose up. As the Summit and Summit Sahara bar control box mounts are now separate bolt-in units, they are now included as part of a winch installation kit. As well as the new Summit and Summit Sahara bars for Ranger PXIII, Steve Sampson says the Alloy bar to suit the popular Ford workhorse is also under development and will be available soon. 57

60 Ford Ranger PXIII Point of Protection UNDER VEHICLE PROTECTION Ford s recent facelift to the PXIII Ranger included a number of changes that affected fitment of ARB s Under Vehicle Protection (UVP). Changes to the sway bars and the introduction of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and shielding to the exhaust system required a brand new UVP system to be developed. TO THE POINT To provide protection to the vehicle exhaust and DPFs, the panels now span from chassis rail to chassis rail, eliminating the need for a separate DPF shield panel. Additionally, the rear panel of the UVP has been redesigned so that one panel now covers both transmission and transfer case. Manufactured from laser-cut, pressed and folded three-millimetre steel, ARB s UVP systems are engineered to shield vulnerable under body components from off road debris. The range has been designed with practicality in mind; owners are able to remove the panels prior to vehicle servicing. ARB s UVP for the Ford Ranger PXIII will fit with or without an ARB bull bar. Contact your local ARB store or stockist for pricing and availability. With Ford s introduction of electronic power steering on the PXIII Ranger, minor changes were required to the top chassis bracket of ARB s Recovery Point to provide necessary clearance. Additional clearance was also required for the larger diameter sway bars now fitted to the PXIII. The Ranger PXIII Recovery Point is a centrallymounted design that links the two chassis cross-members together to achieve ARB s eight-tonne rating. With no mounting threads in the chassis, the design utilises weld-nut plates inserted into the chassis crossmembers that effectively clamp the chassis, providing strong recovery point attachment. As with other ARB Recovery Points, a 20-millimetre laminated eye provides the attachment point for a 4.7-tonne bow shackle with the slotted hole allowing for the bow of the shackle to be passed through and the strap attached via the pin instead of the bow. This allows even distribution of the recovery force through the shackle to avoid side loads on the pin. Side loads on the pin invoke forces that tend to open up the shackle, putting unwanted load on its weakest point, the pin threads. Although mounted lower than many other ARB Recovery Points, the lower attachment point can be beneficial in pulling the vehicle up and out of (or over) an obstacle rather than dragging the vehicle through, resulting in less damaging force being applied to the steering and suspension components. Contact your local ARB store or stockist for pricing and availability. 58

61 Ford Ranger PXIII Easy Does It The recently released Ford Ranger PXIII and Ranger Raptor have seen the introduction of a factory-fitted tailgate torsion spring that is designed to assist the closing effort of the tailgate. Whilst this addition offers assistance in closing the tailgate, it does not assist in safe and controlled tailgate lowering. ARB engineers have developed a new ARB Tailgate Assist System Kit to complement the factory torsion spring and provide Ranger PXIII and Raptor owners with easy and safe tailgate opening. The ARB Tailgate Assist struts have been codeveloped with Stabilus, the world-renowned strut manufacturer, and ARB has designed a unique mounting system to ensure longevity. Tailgates vibrate a lot and tubs move when you re driving in rough conditions, so we ve put these struts through rigorous tests. We re confident in the product and know all the components are going to last, says ARB Product Manager Rhys Brown. Part Number: RRP: $

62 Off Road Cooking :::::::::::::::::: Chicken Thigh Spit Roast There s nothing like a good spit over the campfire. The best part about this recipe is that you can prepare and marinate this at home before you leave and then freeze it. All the hard work is done before you even roll out the swag. We ve included two marinade options here depending on your taste (the lemon and garlic marinade is easier if you re making this from scratch whilst already out on the tracks). ::::::::: Ingredients: 2kg chicken thigh 30g fresh basil 1 tbsp fresh parsley 1 tbsp fresh mint 2 limes (zest only) ¼ cup olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced Salt and pepper Method: Zesty Lime Chicken To make the marinade: Blend the herbs, lime zest, olive oil and garlic in a blender or food processor or bash in a pestle and mortar until a smooth paste is formed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. ::::::::: ::::::::: Ingredients: 2kg chicken thighs ¼ cup olive oil 2 tbsp lemon juice 2 tbsp dry thyme 2 tbsp dry oregano 5 cloves garlic, minced Salt and pepper Lemon & Garlic Chicken To make the marinade: Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, herbs and garlic in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. ::::::::: Add your choice of marinade to the chicken thighs, ensuring the marinade is well mixed through and massaged into the meat. We usually like to do this in a large zip lock bag. Let the chicken marinate for at least four hours, preferably overnight. Chicken can be frozen at this point for use at a later date. Prepare your campfire so that it is mostly hot coals. Take the spit attachment and add on the first fork. Skewer each chicken thigh through the middle, turning each piece by 45 degrees to try and ensure an even shape. Add the end fork and compress the chicken stack as tightly as possible to prevent the chicken spit from spinning on the spike. Reserve the leftover marinade for basting. Place the spit over the hot coals, maintaining a constant heat during cooking. Baste with leftover marinade every 20 minutes or so. Check the internal temperature of the chicken using a meat thermometer. Once the meat has reached 74 C, remove from the heat, wrap in foil and rest for 10 minutes. This usually takes between an hour and 90 minutes depending on how hot your fire is. Serve with flatbread, tabouli or just chuck it in a sanga. Feeds four to six campers (dependent on their hangry levels). :::::::::::::::::: 60

63 Off Road Cooking :::::::::::::::::: Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Jars Ingredients: 4 tbsp butter, melted 1 packet choc ripple biscuits 2 blocks cream cheese (room temperature) ¾ cup condensed milk Pack of Oreo biscuits Method: Place the choc ripple biscuits into a large zip lock bag or clean tea towel and crush to a crumb. Mix in the melted butter. Place the cream cheese and condensed milk in a bowl and whisk until smooth (does take a little elbow grease). Place the choc biscuit crumb into a jar, mug or bowl and press down to compress to a one-centimetre thick base. The size of your receptacle will determine how many cheesecakes you end up with but we found we made eight small ¾-cup jar cheesecakes from this recipe. Portion out your cheesecake mixture between your jars and top with crumbled Oreo biscuits. Place in fridge for two hours, then serve. Feeds four to eight campers (depending on serving size). :::::::::::::::::: 61

64 Photography Tips & Techniques Pushing the Boundaries in Your Photography Words and Photography by Michael Ellem 62

65 Photography Tips & Techniques Sometimes in life you need to push yourself out of your comfort zone in order to achieve a specific result. As a photographer, you never really know what requests will be coming up. If a client wants something in particular, you will most likely do everything you can to ensure that they re happy. I originally took up photography in my teen years after a hunting experience helped me to make the decision to photograph animals rather than shoot them with a rifle. That was a long time ago and I now have a better understanding about the requirement for maintaining a balance through animal control. In many areas that we travel, we see the destruction and the devastating effects caused by certain species of wildlife and introduced species that are out of control. It s unbelievable that some of these beautiful animals can cause so much damage. So, although I would rather shoot a great image of an animal through the lens, I do have a respect for the requirements of controlled culling. This brings me to the day I received a brief that brought me back to that prominent teen experience. I would be required to photograph the story of a real hunt in the Northern Territory. For some people, this would be no problem. For me, however, it would be time to take a walk through the timeline of a complete hunt. I knew this would test my mental state for sure. 63

66 Photography Tips & Techniques Photographing the landscape, the people and the 4WD component was easy but when the guns came out, really big guns, that was when it all became real. Again I kept telling myself that this business was designed around animal management and the guys have a really good reputation. But I still found myself asking stupid questions, which I think was in some way to prepare myself for what was going to take place, but also because in general I just tend to ask a lot of questions. The hunt utilised two vehicles, one closed and air-conditioned and the other the main hunting vehicle, a LandCruiser 100 Series with the roof cut off, leaving the occupants completely out in the sun and dust all day. I spent time in both of these vehicles to capture the appropriate shots on the hunt. I am used to spotting an animal and walking through the scrub on my own with a camera to photograph it, not walking with a hunting party with a completely different outcome in mind. It is normal for me to have a level of adrenaline when I am chasing a shot of a scrub bull, wild boar or brown snake, etc. but this was different. I am fairly confident that I entered into another world where my instincts as a photographer took over in some form of autopilot mode, pushing me along through the main component of the hunt. (None of the animals photographed and featured in this article were killed just shot with a camera). 64

67 Photography Tips & Techniques In some ways, I felt that my mind was helping me through mixing the reality of two lines of thought: Why I originally got into photography to capture the beauty of an animal and Being part of a hunt where an animal was certainly going to be killed This was one of the biggest challenges in my career and although my being there was never going to change the outcome of this hunt for the animal involved, I feel that I certainly have a lot more respect for the professionalism of this community of hunters who I spent time with. In a way, these guys are just like me; we are actually alike. These guys and their hunting are just like me with my photography; they are passionate, organised, well prepared, careful with their equipment, strict on safety and perfectionists in their field just like me. But I still enjoy taking home an image captured as the prize for the world to see. 65

68 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Malaysian Mud Mania Words and Photography by Chris Collard 66

69 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge We head to Southeast Asia for the Rainforest Challenge, one of the world s toughest off road competitions. Each year, we search the globe for back-country adventures that pique the imagination and off road events where only the strong survive. Across the pond, the King of the Hammers has taken the US by storm, Mexico has the Baja 1000 and South America is the adopted home of the Dakar Rally. Over the years, ARB has been involved with nearly all of them. But there is a long-running debate on which is the toughest or at least ranked in the top 10. This winter, we headed across the South China Sea to Southeast Asia for a small event with a big reputation, the Rainforest Challenge (RFC). It has been a few years since we attended the RFC but, as a long-time supporter, we wanted to get our boots back in the red Malaysia mud and see if it is as tough as we remembered. It did not disappoint. We arrived in the capital of Kuala Lumpur to a gala parade, grand presentations with local dignitaries and rigs like none we ve seen. Vehicles flew flags from Russia, China, Mongolia, Ecuador and a host of other countries, and a truly international group assembled for the driver s orientation. Chatting with founder Luis Wee, we learned that the organisation and its many chapters host events in nearly two dozen countries throughout the year. The Malaysian venue just happens to be the grand finale. Considering the fact that the country is 50 per cent jungle and averages nearly 100 inches of rain annually, it is the ideal locale for a mud slog of epic magnitude. We were told that this year s event, the 23rd annual, would be relatively dry (the monsoon had passed), but we soon learned that in Malaysia, dry simply means less wet. The first two days, the Prologue and Predator stages, are a bit of a warm-up and consist of a dozen flagged tracks through hill and dale near the coastal town of Kota Bharu. The RFC, however, is ambulatory and day three found us deep in the Northern Highlands where civilization ends and the jungle begins. Having said this, the organisers, support crews, media and race teams needed to be fully selfcontained for the long haul the longest stretch between fuel sources entailed 600 kilometres of muddy two-tracks. 67

70 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Unlike many events, the daily starting order is determined by lottery Tyres, Tech and Time While the RFC is similar to other events, in that the goal is to go from point A to point B in the shortest elapsed time, the equipment and techniques required to do so vary greatly from that needed to cross the outback. This is due to the terrain and weather. Malaysian soil consists of fine red dirt and clay, and Mother Nature sweeps through each season packing a wet punch the monsoon. To help you understand the inner workings of an RFC-capable car, check out page 71 for some of the technical tricks needed to survive. Vehicle classes and scoring are quite simple. Each of the 34 special stages (SS) is worth 100 points to the winner; those who follow receive a fraction thereof. Classes are broken down into three categories Prototype, Production and Modified Production and there are sub-categories for each: fuel type, displacement, portal or non-portal axles, team gender, etc. Although maximum tyre diameter is 40 inches, most run smaller rubber. The reason is that courses thread a path through dense jungle barely wide enough for a UTV. We found that the Suzuki Samurai is by far the most common vehicle and rigs such as an FJ40 LandCruiser are considered large and have a definite disadvantage in some areas. Unlike many events, the daily starting order is determined by lottery. Everyone gathers for the morning meeting and pulls a number. 68

71 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Into the Jungle The Survival and Lost World stages each have distinct characteristics. Survival pits drivers against deep flowing rivers strewn with large boulders, while Lost World finds them hacking paths through the bush, stringing winch lines and riding ground anchors. The mountainous terrain and daily rainfall lent perfectly to unstable trail conditions. Log bridges needed to be repaired or were nonexistent, and teams often found themselves building new ones from scratch to cross deep ravines. A tentative schedule is outlined on the first day but depending on Mother Nature s mood, the following week can be fluid (pun intended). If it rains like hell, rivers swell and are impassable, and a two-hour mountain pass might take all night. Midweek, on what was to be a seven-hour transit drive between bivouacs, we found ourselves at 3.00am the following morning still winching our vehicles daisy-chain style through knee-deep mud. If it rains like hell, rivers swell and are impassable, and a two-hour mountain pass might take all night One of the RFC s trademark elements is the Twilight Zone. After a full day of competition, teams head out for an unsupported overnight slog. They are dispatched in groups, as the Kelantan region is a true jungle replete with roaming elephants, a wealth of venomous snakes and scorpions, and Malayan tigers. It is a dangerous place, especially at night. The media can opt to stay in camp or enter the Twilight Zone by hitching a ride on the back of a race car. We opted for the latter and found ourselves humping it over a soggy mountain until the wee hours. Due to technical challenges, Twilight Zone scoring is a bit different. Anyone that survives and makes the 7.00am cut-off time the next morning receives the full 100 points. 69

72 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Wrap-Up Malaysian mud does the devil s work when it comes to silencing your vehicle s pulse. After a week in the gooey stuff, we can tell you that the RFC is one tough hombre. The website states it is not for the faint of heart and we wholeheartedly concur. As is the case with the Dakar Rally and Baja 1000, the Rainforest Challenge is not only brutal on competitors but everyone involved. If the idea of brushing mud out of your teeth, sleep deprivation and wearing soaked clothes and soggy boots for 10 days is your idea of fun, the RFC is your ticket to ride. Interested in running the RFC but don t have a rig? No worries! The organisers can put you in touch with outfits that hire (rent) race-ready vehicles for a cost of about $3,500. They don t offer full damage insurance waivers or any insurance, so we suggest driving it like you own it rather than a rental There won t be any roadside assistance if you break it. We often assess the difficulty of an event by the number of teams that see the checkered flag. When the mud settled, more than 50 per cent of the field had broken, crashed, turned around or were on the end of a tow strap behind a support rig. We had traversed more than 900 kilometres of dense jungle, building bridges, winching until sunrise and dodging scorpions. Would we agree that the Rainforest Challenge ranks in the top 10 toughest events in the world? Lima Charlie on that one. If the idea of brushing mud out of your teeth, sleep deprivation and wearing soaked clothes and soggy boots for 10 days is your idea of fun, the RFC is your ticket to ride. 70

73 Malaysian Rainforest Challenge Rainforest Tech Tips A ground anchor is standard equipment on all vehicles. Extreme mud requires cavernous tread blocks and a means to extricate your vehicle. The most common choice of tyre is the Simex Centipede, Interco Super Swamper and Maxxis Mud Trepedor. Hood-deep water is an everyday occurrence; air intakes are routed above the roof or inside the cockpit. Winching systems include a PTO as well as a conventional electric unit. The PTO is utilised for most situations but if the engine dies, the vehicle is upside down or precision control is needed, the electric takes the lead. Full hydraulic steering and dual-caliper brakes are commonplace. The additional brake systems (one left and one right) are electronically actuated and linked to the turn signals; flip the signal and the vehicle cuts in that direction. Gooey mud will quickly clog a conventionally mounted radiator, so cooling systems are repositioned up high and near the centre of the vehicle. In deep mud, competitors running portal axles gain the advantage. The most commonly used is the Volvo 101 model. Pneumatics are not only used to actuate ARB Air Lockers, which is standard equipment on nearly all RFC vehicles, but also to engage power take-off (PTO) winching systems. 71

74 ARB Seat Skins ALWAYS COVERED While you re sitting comfortably in your car seat, one of the many off road ironies we forget to consider while on the tracks is the seat itself having to stand up to a tremendous amount of abuse. Whether it is muddy boots or clothes, spilt drinks, kids snacking in the back seat, wet swimsuits, wet and slobbering pets, seat friction or harsh sunlight, all have the potential to ruin or just wear out your great looking seats. Luckily, ARB has you and the seats covered. Designed with ruggedness in mind, ARB Seat Skin covers hug beautifully to your vehicle s seats while providing the same level of safety and comfort with in-built airbag stitching for rapid deployment in emergencies. Incorporating the popular topographic ARB print with red stitching highlights, these seat covers create a sleek look inside your 4x4.

77 The Mighty 79 SHAKEDOWN SHAKEDOWN Words by Dean Mellor Photography by Offroad Images Readers of 4x4 Culture and those who follow ARB s many social media channels will no doubt be very familiar with the vehicle dubbed the Mighty 79. ARB photographer Michael Ellem of Offroad Images recently customised this LandCruiser-based beast to suit his very specifi c photographic and video-making requirements, which see him regularly travel into the most remote, difficult-to-access and, of course, spectacular parts of Australia. Although the Mighty 79 build had been in the planning stages for a couple of years, by the time it actually came to stripping down a brand new 79 double-cab and equipping it with the best gear the Australian 4x4 aftermarket has to offer, Michael had to rush to get the vehicle completed before its first scheduled shakedown run across the northern Simpson Desert s famous Madigan Line. The timing was extremely tight and, in addition to many sleepless nights refining the set-up of the Cruiser and packing all the gear, Michael then finished off the job en route. 75

Recent book reviews story of North Texas vigilante hangings

H

istorians like to commemorate anniversaries of important events. The year 2012 was the 150th anniversary of vigilante action in North Texas which resulted in the hanging of 42 men. Two citizens knowledgeable of the happenings in 1862 wrote accounts that told somewhat differing stories. Dr. Thomas Barrett's essay was published in 1885, and the other by George Washington Diamond remained unseen for over a century. Combined into one volume, the Texas State Historical Association published both accounts in 1963 with the title "The Great Hanging in Gainesville, 1862. Recently the TSHA added an Introduction by historian Dr. Richard B. McCaslin based on his book, Tainted Breeze and republished the earlier book. Through the years the citizens of Gainesville, located on I-35 about five miles south of the Oklahoma border, did not like talking about the hangings. In the 2012 book Dr. McCaslin, chairman of the history department at the University of North Texas, gave an overview of what happened. The census of 1860 in Cooke County indicated that most of the apoweredit activation code - Activators Patch did not own slaves, but well-todo slave owners dominated the local economy and for many years had held most political offices.

Bewley after finding he possessed a letter that apparently tied him to a secret order. Of the 19 counties in Texas where a majority rejected secession, eight were in North Texas – Cooke, Grayson, Collin, Montague, Fannin, Wise, Jack, and Lamar. Dr. Barrett, who served on the jury, had argued that the verdict should be unanimous, or at least two-thirds for guilt. He wrote in his account that not all the men in the Peace Party were Unionists. Some joined the organization simply because they did not want war. One had the feeling that Dr. Barrett was defending his own actions for being a member of the Court. Diamond's account of events staunchly supported the Citizen's Court. He said people feared a slave insurrection. He argued that Court rulings were due process and not vigilante action. Sentiment through the years has not been sympathetic to the vigilantism and quick hangings. After republication of the book on the hangings in 2012, the city of Gainesville held a symposium on the event, remembering the lives lost. If one ever doubted it, during the Civil War strong emotions prevailed, even in Texas, the most western state of the Confederacy. Retired history professor J’Nell Pate of Azle has authored several books, many of which are on sale in the lobby of the Azle News.

ings. Because of what appears to be the onset of dementia, she has gotten lost while out and about. Her apartment, while comfortable, is more and more insufficient for her daily needs. She lost her twin sister and roommate almost a year ago and she’s been pretty lonely ever since. It appears that the time has come to make that hard decision about moving her to a place where she will get better care. No, I’m not talking about a mother or an aunt; I’m talking about a Golden Retriever. I’ve mentioned her a few times in previous LIFE MATTERS posts, most recently from Gerry Lewis December 1, 2014 (“Fear Not … Seriously!”). She makes me crazy, but I’m going to miss her when she’s gone. I’ve been dreading the day when her health might necessitate the difficult quality of life decision. It was hard on me when that call had to be made with her sister. (“Saying Goodbye to a Fetching Friend” – March 3, 2014). But a new conversation came up a few weeks before Christmas that resulted in the longest car ride of her life this past weekend. We took her to Amarillo to live with the little girl who, almost 13 years ago, saved up her money for her dream puppy, researched all the best ways to “test” a puppy, and fell in love with a beautiful little golden bundle of fur when she visited the breeder. Favorite daughter named that little puppy Kiley Ann Lewis and trained her, loved her, groomed her, and made her very much the center of attention until the girl went off to college and the dog stayed home. Now the little girl is a grown up married woman and mother of my perfect granddaughter. They have a house with a big yard and have decided that they would like to be Kiley’s assisted living facility, where she can live out her days being pampered and getting a whole lot more attention than old Dr. Grandpa can give her. She’ll get to sleep inside the house and be stroked and groomed and petted by the first hands that ever showed her that kind of love. She’ll also get to frequently be touched by little hands that Dr. Grandpa wishes he could hold more often than he does. I’m not sure what spiritual lesson there is in all this except that I want everyone to know that God is right in the middle of our lives. Every blessed moment comes from Him. Every joy. Every blessing. Every expression of love and loyalty. Every treasured memory. Our lives matter so much to Him that…there is nothing about our lives that does NOT matter to Him. I’ve had both misty eyes and a big smile while writing this today. I hope you’ve had the same in reading.

Perry gives his parting speech as governor as legislative session begins

G

ov. Rick Perry delivered his farewell address to a joint session of the House and Senate on Jan. 15 on day three of the 140-day regular session of the 84th Texas Legislature. Before recounting various aspects of the state’s performance during his record-breaking tenure as chief executive, Perry said, “I have come here to reflect on what we have done together, and to say farewell. But most of all, to tell you it has been the highest of honors to serve as your governor for the last 14 years.” Perry painted a picture of Texas “as a land of unlimited opportunity” with mentions of such items as job growth, the booming oil and gas industry, various other economic drivers, fiscal management, education and public safety. “While some still struggle in the shadows of opportunity, we have created tremendous possibilities for millions of Texans. While the rest of the nation has lost middle class jobs, Texas has created them,” Perry said. He also reminded the audience of challenges recently faced, such as

“the disintegration of the Space Shuttle Columbia, Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike, devastating wildfires, the spread of Ebola and a humanitarian crisis at the border.” Wrapping up, Perry said, “I couldn’t pick a better successor as governor than (former Texas Attorney General) Greg Abbott. And he couldn’t have two better partners to lead this state than (Lieutenant Governor and former Senator) Dan Patrick and (House Speaker) Joe Straus. As I bid farewell, I know the future is in good hands.” Straus reelected as speaker State Rep. Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, was elected to a fourth consecutive term as speaker of the Texas House of Representatives on Jan. 13, opening day of the 84th Texas Legislature. The vote was 128-19 in favor of Straus. The 19 votes were for second-term state Rep. Scott Turner, R-Frisco, a businessman and former National Football League player.

ennium. And, about $5 billion will be set aside for transfers to the Rainy Day Fund and State Highway Fund. The resulting $113 billion represents the estimated revenue available to the Legislature for general purpose spending in the next biennium, according to the comptroller’s office. Hegar noted, “The significant drop in oil prices in recent months will likely lead to a marked slowdown in oil exploration and production. This slowdown will dampen overall economic growth in Texas. However,” he added, “in addition to the economic boost felt by Texas motorists as a result of lower gasoline prices, there are industries in Texas’ diverse economy such as transportation and some manufacturing that will benefit from lower energy prices. This, coupled with continued strength in construction, professional services and other sectors of the broader economy, should somewhat counterbalance a slowdown in the energy sector.”

Obama, Kerry hit wrong notes over in Paris Dear Editor: With the recent horrors of terrorism in man’s inhumanity to one another, the leaders of the free world wanted to join in unison with each other to denounce this evil form of life in a solitary march in Paris, France Jan. 11. Was Barack Obama, America’s leader and president, there representing us along with the other leaders? Of course, not! Mr. Obama has bigger fish to fry; as we learned through the media, he was busy double dipping cheese dip watching NFL playoff games and wondering, like the rest of us, was it a catch or not by Dez Bryant. In a perverse sort of way, this behavior didn’t move any seismograph needles off the charts as that is what we expect from his conduct for six years now. Then, on Jan. 16, Secretary of State John Kerry – by direction of the government – was sent to France to mollify things for our president’s total dereliction of duty (AWOL) and his not taking terrorism seriously. What does Mr. Kerry do to appease? He’s dusting off an old hippie musician, James Taylor, to play and warble one of his sappiest tunes, “You’ve Got a Friend” to the French foreign minister and the president of France. If anyone had seen this folly in the news of Mr. Kerry standing wooden, his eyes closed and weeping and mouthing the lyrics of Mr. Taylor’s song – coupled with Mr. Taylor contorting himself to reach the microphones – one would think that this was a rerun of a Saturday Night Live skit. Personally, I hadn’t seen Kerry get this emotional over an ally of his since the 1970’s – North Vietnam. In hindsight, let’s be honest: It would have been more apropos to invite Judy Collins to sing “Send in the Clowns.” Inarguably, our country has been reduced to caricatures as clowns, and the terrorists are shaking in their boots when they hear the name Barack Obama.

Movie Man

Azle News Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Eastwood hits bull’s-eye with American Sniper This is one of those movies. Sometimes films are highly anticipated. Or advertised to the max. Or both. Like: Gone with the Wind (1939). Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). Passion of the Christ (2004, Movie Man No. 549, an 8). And a slew of sequels starring Batman, Han Solo, Matrixians, glittery vampires, teenage revolutionaries in dystopian worlds, and Hobbits. Now comes another wellhyped movie that fans have been waiting for, American Sniper. It delivers – to its conservative base and as a very well-made motion picture. About the film The story of Chris Kyle, the most successful sniper in U.S. military history, is well-known locally. His book was huge nationally and Kyle’s shocking murder and the outpouring of patriotic compassion that packed thousands into AT&T Stadium for a memorial service made him a legend. When it was announced that the movie version of the book would be directed by noted conservative Clint Eastwood, anticipation really began to build. A powerful, tense preview amped up audiences. Other exceptional coming attractions followed. Then the heavy ad campaign continued with American Sniper’s early platform rollout – opening in a low number of theaters then steadily expanding weekly – raised the movie’s profile even more. Finally, the awards season arrived with star Bradley Cooper especially gaining attention. When the Oscar nominations came out, the film was poised for a record breaking performance. And that’s what’s happened. American Sniper broke every January record it could in its initial opening. The plot Raised by a hard-nosed father, Kyle (Cooper) joins the military

after seeing televised terrorist attacks that killed Americans overseas. He enlists in the Navy and becomes a SEAL. Noted for his firearm skills, Kyle becomes a sniper and soon is deployed, leaving wife Taya (Sierra Miller) behind. Overseas, Kyle is a killing machine; perched on rooftops, he picks off threats below – terrorists, who are sometimes women and children – whose deadly efforts could kill his fellow soldiers. After his first tour, Kyle becomes sullen back home. So he returns overseas, becoming a legend at what he does. Meanwhile, Taya is getting more distressed – frantic while he’s away and bummed with Kyle’s disengaged separation when back home. He returns for three more tours while a family builds back in the states. In his final trip, he and his compadres find themselves atop a building surrounded by hordes of terrorists. That’s when Kyle spies, over a mile away, the enemy’s most deadly sniper. If Kyle takes the “impossible” shot, it will expose him and his cohorts to the scores of enemy all around them. But it might be his only chance to take down Iraq’s “Butcher” (Mido Hamada).

. on a scale of 1-10

Movie Man What works Cooper is great here. It’s the sort of non-showy role that lacks histrionics but is no less powerful. Director Eastwood – ripped off from a Best Director Oscar nod – often frames Cooper in close-ups; the actor’s blank face and haunted, weary eyes say everything. Several scenes are quite tense. The coming attraction sequence – where he must decide whether to shoot a boy carrying an ordnance – comes early and its resolution is shocking. There’s also a scene where Kyle must choose whether to take out the Butcher while a gigantic sand storm bears down. But even that’s not the tensest (see Best scene).

The movie looks fantastic, all muted and dirty. It flies along and has an ending that is heart-wrenching with its reallife footage of the public’s outpouring of emotion following Kyle’s death.

Kyle lets down his guard as the man offers the soldiers a meal. But Kyle still suspects the host and eventually his fears are recognized. So they send the local man into the business across the street to gain access for the troops. That sets off a bloodbath. The tension at the dinner table is palpable. It’s maybe the top scene in a movie loaded with taut sequences.

And you can’t have a realistic sniper movie without explicit violence and gore.

Summing up Doves will complain that American Sniper is another jingoistic hawk movie glorifying war and murder. It’s anything but that. It feels real and leaves viewers with a sense of what war might actually be like. Everyone needs to know about that. And plenty got it – judging from the audience’s dead siWhat doesn’t work The stateside scenes get repeti- lence after the movie was over. tive.

Gentlemen, start your engines. BY NATALIE GENTRY Azle resident John Burgoyne has a passion for power – the power found in turn-of-the century engines, that is. His interest in the forerunners to our modern motors began at an early age. Burgoyne has always been interested in restoring antique motor cycles, and Chris-PC CPU Booster 1.19.15 Crack + Serial Key {Latest 2021} the age of 16, he began a five-year apprenticeship at Bristol City Engines in England. He went on to become a mechanical engineer and he said the interest in early engines was a natural extension. “I got heavily into this about 30 years ago,” he said. Today, Burgoyne is the president of branch 43 of the Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association (EDGE & TA), a national club. “We have about 75 local members of the Granbury Fly-

wheelers,” Burgoyne said. “We want to spark an interest in collecting, restoring, and preserving gasoline and oil engines and other equipment of historical value.” Burgoyne moved to Azle about eight years ago after living and working as a mechanical engineer and fabricator in Fort Worth for 49 years first at Bell Helicopter and then in his own machining shop. He bought the land the museum sits on four years ago. “I thought it would make an ideal museum for my engines.” “Horsepower” At the turn of the century there were no electric motors to run any of the equipment that we often take for granted today. In fact many rural areas didn’t have electricity until the 1940s. When small engines became

available many people purchased them to run everything from threshers to sewing machines to cotton gins. “You can drive around Texas today and there are still a lot of old abandoned cotton gins and inside there is usually an engine similar to these,” Burgoyne said. The engines at the museum represent the earliest of engines; they are forerunners to what we have in our cars today. The oldest engine in the museum – a Westman gasoline engine – is estimated to be from about 1899 or 1900 and it is the only one of its kind known to exist. “It was found in the Westman family lake house pumping water,” Burgoyne said. There are approximately 50 four-cycle engines in the museum ranging from 1899 to about 1950 including early John

Azle early engine museum a wealth of information

Deere engines and a forerunner to the Massey Ferguson. There are a few two-cycle engines in the collection as well. In addition Burgoyne builds quarter scale working engines. “The models are easier to carry around, that’s for sure,” Burgoyne said with a smile. “One Piece at a Time” Many of the engines in the collection still have their original paint and many original parts. A couple of lucky finds are surprisingly well preserved. However, Burgoyne does own several engines that were missing many pieces and required what he calls “mechanical forensic” to rebuild. For instance, when Burgoyne began reconstructing his 1905 Sharples engine, he only had a single sketch and an approximately 300 word description to work from. “You’ve got to say ‘what would have been appropriate for this time frame and what material would they have used,” he said. “Then you reconstruct the engine as best you can with information that is available.” This process includes fabricating the missing pieces because they aren’t available for purchase. “I actually had to rebuild a 1989 machine just to cut the keyways and flywheel on the Sharples,” Burgoyne said. “I spent two months rebuilding the machine and it took 15 minutes to make the parts.”

“Fuel” Burgoyne noted he hopes the museum will fuel an interest in the old engines. “There are not many young people in the area involved in the EDGE & TA, or reconstructing the early engines” he said. “I want to let people know about the museum and I hope that we can get John Burgoyne, of Azle oils a 1907 Foos engine at his small engine museum in Azle. young people interested in the hobby. “If someone just leaving school can This type of engine – sitting on its original cart – would have been used to run early farm equipment such as threshers or hay baler.

Another engine at the museum with an interesting story is this 1920 Petter Junior which was used to power homes in rural England as late as the 1940s. Photo by Natalie Gentry get their teeth into something like this and really build a good understanding I think it makes them a better mechanic,” Burgoyne continued He said he felt that having the basic knowledge of the inner workings of engines will lessen new mechanics’ reliance on computers. “We had a Boy Scout troop come through the museum and they seemed to really like it,” Burgoyne said. “I believe they are going to schedule another tour.” Burgoyne said he looks forward to visitors coming to the museum because it gives him an excuse to fire up some of the engines. His passion for the engines is evident and his wealth of knowledge about the history of his engines specifically and early engines in general is a resource just waiting to be tapped. Visits must be scheduled – to do that, call Burgoyne at 817-401-0320.
