In July 2017, Justin and Lauren Jones set off across the desert on a trek that lasted more than a hundred days. The terrain was extreme. The walk was grueling. And they took their toddler Morgan with them. Yes, their toddler. Crazy? Let's find out...

They started on the border of Western Australia and the Northern Territory and made their way down to Port Augusta in South Australia.

Justin pulled a 280kg trolley filled with nappies and water, while Lauren pulled their daughter Morgan - and tried to stop her climbing out of the cart every 5 minutes.

So how do you prepare for this? How do you know where you’re going? What do you eat? How much water do you take? How do you entertain a toddler in a small cart? We asked, and they answered.
