🔥WE DID IT! Crossing Cape York hauling 7m trailers (Frenchman’s Track, North QLD) (Part 2 of 2)


beautiful-looking fish in the last episode Jace’s trailer had
to make its own track which left one of the tires slipping off the rim
Chloe done a tire this bag need water – that sucks know something we go to fix
oh it’s jack up a definitely got water in my quick wash rinse and dry
and the tire is ready to be pumped up oh that’s a big of hep
Jax is hoping the bead will reset itself during the tire inflation there’s all
this commotion has attracted the attention of a friendly local you’re
kidding me so that’s name what can I eat he says it’s a nice big snack yeah a few
of oh my he’s a bit hungry he’s a bit skinny so I’m ins Mike take a look at those
colors on the front day Oh put you back away maybe sweet young
kangaroo do you probably do a little wallaby – wouldn’t he be close there guys back to the task at hand she’s on it had been a very long day and I was
really glad to be able to roll the swag out sit around the fire and have a nice
cold beer JC’s here talking about some dessert and I’m thinking yeah right oh
he’s gonna make a cake or something to that effect pull out the camp um I got
to make a fire and he pulls out the little butane burner and he cooks a cake
in this little burner first things first you’re gonna need a bowl so you get your
bowl out I’ve got my cracking bowl there and I’ve got a couple of bags of vanilla
cake mix this is just that home brand stuff so we whack them in just like this
two packets of vanilla cake mix look at that alright then we get a bit of this
shredded coconut we always love a bit of coconut bear that much we’ll do a couple
eggs in so we’re gonna need two eggs one and
– and of course a bit of butter so I got a bit of butter here whack one two big
dollops of butter let’s make it three you’re gonna mix that around a little
bit there we go this is easy as this set up there’s no doubt about it
I might start warming up me a little cooker here so we’re just gonna push
that down there there we go I’m just gonna pop that lid behind me and I’m
gonna give that a bit of a touch up with some butter so it does fall out and
doesn’t stick alright now I’m gonna get a little bit of liquid in there so
that’s what I’m gonna get some of this from just a bit under half of that
container in there and mix that through so I’m gonna put the whole lot in there
because I want to get the consistency right cuz there’s a lot of moisture in
that stuff gotta get that consistency right with it haha that’s the mixing up
nicely now you can see that now that means a little bit more moisture so and
she goes all right that’s nearly all of it see
how liquid that is yeah that’s okay you can see the difference in the
consistency that is perfect now that’s nicely mixed simple as I’m gonna
actually just pour that mixture into the pan and she goes that that’s pretty cool okay that’ll settle
itself just nicely and this will be the tastiest dessert all right we’ll stick the lid on stick
the glass lid on so she cooks fast there we go
they want to keep an eye on that little sucker there you want it to rise up but
be very careful you don’t burn the bottom okay so let’s wait and we’ll get ourselves a
delicious dessert okay you boys but that was one hell of a day I mean topped I
might sign off on a safari oh the pass go Mac what a challenge the Frenchmen
attract mates one of the famous tracks up Cape York you’ve got the Frenchman’s
track you go the kreb track and of course you got the tele track the big
three eggs remote but tomorrow is another day
when Huck we’re halfway there nine we still gonna hit the Wenlock wait lock
we’ll be right there just the eggs is on the way in lock would not be able to go
for a swim it’ll be a bit of fun yeah yeah so yeah
we go but there it is have a look at that hey how cool is that that that is a
desert in a cooker and it’s that easy you could actually yam let that get cold
we cut it up really nicely and take it out the next day on the boat and stuff
right hell yeah all right here we go bit of cream on
yours mate yes please Queen’s been sitting there for a little bit it’s all
scooping me out for you I look at that the cream on top
CME’s taste of me just try the cream the Mojo the crown will change the wrong
choices now yeah my go-to crime is down the crane
custard oh come on I’m gone just there we go
is it clean miss cover and my god was that cake beautiful so so good
that’s definitely one I want to try the next time I go camping I know my kids
are gonna love it it’s pretty good Abel’s right your best part about it is
it’s so easy if only mated Mike to the Wenlock
I can’t see any water yet we read off the order yeah we gotta cross the pass
go make this one be easier again so you tell me oh just look good that was messy
watch that stop there I took out these trials a tough mine there she’s made the
Winlock now in near the water that was here last time I saw even date never
look at it it’s not Wow big difference just tranquil now we would have been
standing wasting water here all here in that morning would have been up the up
to here remember worried about the cars getting rep as you come around here coz
the current was just yet roaring and that was the night before and then the
next morning dude the thing is I’ll see exit gonna be like the way lock itself I thought was gonna
be pretty easy and once we got there and had a look it was it was coming out the
other side that was going to be the challenge
oh let’s get a look at which one we should take that again oh that looks
like the one that most people are doing yeah here this way it looks easy in Toms
words that’s a lot gunshot oh this gunshot shotgun oh it’s very bad very
bad spring water running out of the ground
you get up there if we really really had to but we don’t have to yeah it looks
like a mess no we didn’t have the trailers you yeah ugly we chopped it
yeah you would get a spinning gone on here people being gone up and down yeah
I’m just winching I guess I think winching from one of those trees out
there yeah but no I think we’re towing it around that corner I’ll observe
you’re gonna know straight away if I can get around the corner it’s definitely
the way yeah no doubt about it as long as I can get my line up here
yeah and get that ran there like that and I’ll miss that big knob there and
that’s what will get me that the straight run there’s a bit of a hole
over there so it’ll be slow at first and then once I get today I’ll get traction
and away I go daddy Troy there you go yeah you good it was gonna
get around yeah yeah yeah we’re good yeah you look like it’s gonna ride up on
it hit it they just hit it then your wheels coming past just took the little
edge off of it Jovie just tied the edge up with a
chainsaw to help oh really it just you had it the first time yeah and I or I
slipped off that embankment then dr. winter from there right just smash
the siding banging yeah hit it hard oh no I just bounce man today there’s
absolutely nothing ready to which yeah coming around the corner with the
trailer in the 79 I’m I was quite surprised on how far we did actually get
up before I had to jump out and start winching I wouldn’t have pegged it for
forgetting that far that’s for sure I reckon that tree dead ahead the winch I
thought probably was get a file on that hill I mean it was hard enough to walk
up this hill and it was pulling you know seven and a half ton worth of vehicle
and trailer up this hill single line pull I did you want to pulley block this
or what it’s pretty for long now you’re coming up to enough to check
nicely for me though it’s coming out with some light on that friggin waitress come baby come on come on come on oh that’s taxi that is taxing my that’s
a powerful winch that takes a lot of grunt to do that that’s just that’s not
why this is ten times higher view up here than we anticipated we still would
nearly drive up there’s not even close then I’ll get to get up there
yeah he’s touring the track it’s freezing you all right let out of it don’t go up Oh oh why those messed up dude that was mad
anything was coming up I was just I was just once they say I wasn’t even moving
he’s just gone it’s just digging a train my I tell you what you gotta have a
solid winch to be doing that stuff I’m gonna turn around get back the other way time for the DMACC stick give it a crack
shut my windows that I get dirt flying in my window like I normally do oh it’s
coming up JB reform this one don’t in as we going around the corner around the
corner to start that is a start alright that went in I’m gonna go to the
boss ring because on a double the winch line cuz he’s got a 12,000 pound winch
and although my mine 16 and a half thousand pounder and he’s got that big
trailer on the back similar weight to mine so it’s gonna load up that winch a
lot so this will double the capacity of the winch yeah it all looks good mate
how’s it feel good it’s good
coming up over the hump down now baby well all your rope here will double
double pull you off that top tree and I’ll use the extension rope we’ll go
through and I’ll just give him an extension with this so you just use this
as an extension you’re on a main from the hook back to the vehicle so we don’t
get it so you do exactly the same set up through there
I’ll give me some rope leave that on there take that down to your end Oh No thank
God honey yeah all right single but you’re fine
yeah yeah you gotta make it yep yes we know why you spool okay yeah
on your drum I’m happy with that why you go we got a guy there just go single pulley
reckons see how it loads up well you’re gonna have to go for another rope if you
got high yeah we go high go we gone way out
yep you want me to climb the tree like yeah I could coconut may look like a
stick you got it I gotta come down man I don’t all right this is taking some getting up here let
me tell you this is nasty go on baby he wins run out of data go yeah we want
to get your drunken I think we’d better so it’s so steep and there’s and there’s
no real good point to reach off the trees are all off on the wrong angles
really we need ideal here we need a winch point there just plan a trip let’s
plant a tree here and then we’ll come back in 30 years goal then the track
will be somewhere else oh yeah well you haven’t got a winter point in the right
spot we’re gonna use Jason’s truck and use two winches all right this is crazy oh god sake
organs he’s going boy nearly up famiglia maybe we’re up that was bad oh that was nasty
oh no proper nasty everything was getting a word yeah we didn’t break
nothing no that’s good that’s good we’re up yeah yeah there you go and I thought
I seriously thought that the Wenlock was gonna be easy compared to the Pascal we
had more trouble with that high that’s nasty
rough JB well got there in the end yeah Oh onwards and upwards to finish the
track well nove you may but I think we
conquered the Frenchman straight no doubt about it mate we smoked the French
let’s drink mind you it did give us a little idea
hurry up here and there you reckon we’re the first to drag a big
trial as one first of the silliest these festive last
yeah our only goal game I can take big trailers where we go when they are gonna continue
West I’m gonna cut through to Tavia dance and
right across the west coast cake York after the long haul in the Frenchman’s
track the boys make it to the west coast of the Cape they hit the sand on the
quads to scout out the perfect spot to launch the boat finally after all of the
dust and dirt they can fish these stunning waterways waking up on the
beach in the swag around an open fire nothing better having a boat to fish
these remote places but I mean this is the the sort of stuff that I dream of
when it comes to fishing you boys finish it no we gotta go fishing I’m ready to
go so get up nice and early I mean it’s it’s a beautiful view the the little
creek the inlet that sort of came in amazing just screamed fish to Queenie
come on guys I am on so you’re told of this spot it’s gonna be good I got
caught holy that’s a cracker Sawyer this that is a
cracker well done that is a loss that’s a fish never caught a queen fish that
big before that was definitely a PB and in the spot that we’re in you couldn’t
get much better yeah so after a little bit of a morning
fishing session on the beach we decided to jump in the boat and go for a fish
out of the water so we pack up the gear loaded onto the boat and start heading
south lucky thing was we could fish all the
rivers on the way down and wasn’t it fun it wasn’t long before Simon was onto
something decent booyah what was that I’m a little baitcaster
Solomon finally manages to get this thing to the surface and we can see bit
of color and it is a stonking queen fish it is a monster that gave me a workout
let me give you the drought pulls it up manages to get it into the boat I mean I
didn’t get a really good look at it so I couldn’t really tell if it was bigger
than mine he seems to think it was I don’t think it was but it was a nice
fish personal best coin he’s he’s up there with that water we got the
Berkeley that’s all get a piggy everybody

tamale there we go so bad little sporty you’re right right very cool so you want
to hang granny bit more water you want to go and try the next River I might be
jolly nice over you haven’t fished the hell out of this yeah scrape down the
coast this is by far some of the best fishing I’ve ever had on the west coast
to take your G a little more this that’s a cool fish Oh Maura sucker fish they
hang off a big man arise and sharks and wild sharks and they stick themselves
that stuck the locals and creature on the planet
like perfectly designed it attaches itself I’m gonna make them shark mouth
or manner I am hitches arise when he smashed his stuffy eats up the kids beautiful you can make shoes like that
you walk up the side of a building seriously you cannot replicate nature Remora shoes look at that so all we’ve
done is move on about five six caves down the coastline and drop into another
river mouth and then you can see the fish like it’s literally they’re
everywhere wow the size of that card Simon who’s made this why does the body
then pop big Groppi robot see now that’s a fish you can’t catch that fish this
key know why yeah pass me that Moby Dick oh yes I’m on

and before you know it bang chase is on it’s a good fish comes
up to the top and it’s a juvenile Queensland grouper that is a cracker has
his nice business that’s supposed to look one of the prettiest fish you’ll
ever get beautiful looking fish and ice is that that’s beautiful
this thing can grow nearly as big as this boat there you go far off he goes we caught a couple of nice mangrove

boat and eat it straight out of the pan I mean the fish are in the water ten
minutes later we’re eatin Oh Jackson awesome you know now I feel really
privileged to be a part of this adventure with Jayson Simon now these
