THIS WEEK ON ALL 4 ADVENTURE…
With 50ks left to go on this challenging track, Jase, Simon and Jesse are wagering whether they’ll be cut off by the floodwaters at the Drysdale River. Jase is also keeping an eye on his fuel gauge which is sitting on ‘low’, and he’ll need to consider that as he navigates this tough terrain.
When they get to the crossing, it is clear that the water level is high when they can’t see the normal rock landmarks in the middle. Thankfully there are indicators that the water is dropping, so they leave their own markers to see how quickly it is going down. Nothing left to do but launch the boat and try catch some lunch since their food stocks are also running low.
With no fish food, Jase devises a plan to get into town by putting the UTV on the boat to float it across. But Simon suggests a possible alternative by using some bush barrels to buoy the buggy instead.
The water is down slightly the next morning, but they need to work fast to be able to make it to the shops before they close for the weekend. With the barrels floating the buggy and a quick croc briefing from Jesse, they are off to tow the CFMoto across. However, the current is much stronger than anticipated, and stress levels are as high as the water.
They make it to Kalumburu where the kind locals make sure the boys have food and are fuelled up. Then it’s back across the river to camp where Jase cooks up a Bacon Bagel Egg Surprise.
In four days, the water has only dropped a foot at the shore, but they decide to take the boat out to the middle to see if there is a path that is crossable with the truck snorkels. But the depth may not be the biggest concern. Will the current be too strong for the lighter vehicles?
When life gives you lemons, go fishing! So they tow the boat trailer over to the other side and hook up to the UTV to go in search of a decent fishing hole. But a flat tyre on the trailer threatens to ruin the afternoon. This calls for a bit of bush mechanics!
In a waterhole filled with barra, do you think the Catfish King will be able to hook a Personal Best?
