Alice packed to go.....
Alice lost her back seats to make space for water....
She has a Safe spot under the driver's seat....

Jerry cans went on the rook rack along with a second spare wheel, jack,  jack plate and jack block. Tent and chairs as well as wood.

Tools were packed behind driver seat for easy access. All camping kitchen stuff was in meat crates in back so that we did not have to unpack to prep food etc. Cooler-box behind seat were Mrs Bushdriver could pass on the cold stuff as we went.

I took three jerry cans, one would be more than enough, bar petrol strikes. I expected to use a lot more fuel in the sand in Botswana than we actually did. Most 4x4's use about 30 to 50% more in sand. We used less than on the highway..... The roofrack giving lots of extra drag at high speed munched petrol.

Wow, that is SO cool!
GREEN with envy - and psyched to do Bots next... just not sure if my roof is big enough for the many many jerry's I'll need... since my S-exy young thing uses 21l/100km in sand, just cruising evenly at 20-30km/h. Will have to borrow a trailer, or better yet, get one of those fuel trailers the roadworks guys sometimes drag along...
:rolleyes:

Westcoaster I am sure I can arrange that you borrow one of our Diesel Trailers at my work.
 
If you do not take it too rough I am sure 900ltrs will get you between refills!!
ROTFL at my own joke!
 
For some reason we still name & number the petrol ones DT (Diesel Trailer) - probably because we only have about 3 petrol ones.
 
Jokes aside - these Diesel trailers are very heavy empty and weighs in at about 1,5 tons full (very heavy duty trailer, 3mm steel tank and petrol driven pump, hoses, meters, etc) - even our new 2.2 Ranger Diesel bakkies struggle to tow them any faster than 100.
 
We also have a few 1500ltr ones that are towed by the flat trucks.
