Episode 12 covers the 50th Anniversary crossing of the continent of Australia from East to West.
In 2019 members of the Gone-Gpn crew participated in the BFGoodrich East-West Australia Jeep Expedition on the 50th Anniversary of the original crossing of the team of 6 people and 3 Jeeps. The trip was led by Ian McDonald, and members included John Eggleston and Malcom Wilson.
The 2019 team had 13 members and 5 Jeeps and the used the Seven Slot line that has only been used by McDonald's team to cross the Simpson Desert.
The Simpson is Australia's 4th largest desert, covering just over 68,000 square miles. The Simpson Desert is an erg that contains the world's longest parallel sand dunes. These north-south oriented dunes are static, held in position by vegetation. They vary in height from 3 metres (9.8 ft) in the west to around 30 metres (98 ft) on the eastern side.
Join us as we talk with East-West Historian Vaughn Becker about the original crossing and the anniversary trip that was put together by Vaughn and Jeep Action Magazine's Ben Davidson.
