CMI Toyota & LCOOL's 2004 Double Simpson Desert Crossing

What a great Trip! 16 vehicles in total crossed the Simpson Desert in the inaugural LCOOL Simpson Double Crossing - and this report is a taste of more to come.

Some who had to back in civilisation and could not attend the second desert crossing will no doubt feel a touch of sorrow, but it's an opportunity to post pictures before the remaining members return from this adventure.

The trip report for the first part of the trip is being worked on but in the mean time, a bunch of pictures and video action from the first part of the trip.
