"Charles was also a modern day adventurer, taking an expedition across the Simpson Desert with Warren Bonython in 1973 - a time when the desert was just starting to open up to vehicles...It took them 32 days, they walked 463 kilometres and they pulled 250 kilos..The pair went without camels or packhorses, instead pulling behind them an aluminium trailer containing their food and supplies"--Obituary for Charles McCubbin ABC Gippsland, 23 June, 2010, Internet.
