Default Barry Way, Darling River and Plenty Hwy, GRR in 2019

Two trips this year - western NSW, including Barry Way to Lakes Entrance, and Darling River run. Then to Derby WA via Plenty Highway and Gibb River Road. Loved the HEMA HN7 GPS trip logs.
Lots of side trips along the way.
Loved the paddle steamer trip through the river lock at Wentworth. Derby was worth the visit especially to see the "horizontal waterfall" during a ten metre tide range.

No problems with the Challenger on either trip, about 18K klm.

The only thing that "fell off" was the red plastic tap handle on the Provent Catch Can drain pipe - . No worries - Western Filters sent me a new tap, no charge.

Good stuff,

I did GRR in a GQ Patrol ten years ago. I wonder how the NX would handle the corrugations.

I am sure the NX would be OK. The PC Challenger made it without a problem with standard suspension and 2.5 GVM - everyone agrees that they are very underestimated.
I reckon the Plenty Highway was worse than the GRR when I was there in late August/September.
You have no doubt seen -
