    Default Border Track SA

    XC90 - only stuck slightly once in sand. Did the full length of the track and all dunes with one overnight stop.

    Didn't enter the mudholes - they were blocked by stuck Toyotas and Nissans

    Went well prepared with others. Probably at the limit of the vehicle due to ground clearance. Came through relatively unscathed.

    Google / youtube "border track" for details of the track - and plenty of idiots digging ruts.

    Is this Southern Australia or South Africa? Just wondering. I took a trip to South Africa in October last year. Beautiful country. Unfortunately I was driving a Toyota instead of my XC70.

    Looks like you had a lot of fun on your drive. Thanks for the photos.
