Wrecked the mistral, built a tandem axle trailer and brought a pajero. Still got two weeks to go.

sweet f all !
been resting a few minor injuries.
but started to clean the garage.
decided to tidy up the wiring on the surf. then found the alarm system wires where just twisted together. so ended up doing a bit of solder work to repair all that.
back to work, tho did find a tiny we bit of mud on one of the farm tracks to play in :D

Nice!

We did an Aussie Christmas: Hedland, Wickham, Canarvon, Geraldton, Perth, Wave Rock, Albany, Agusta, Margaret River, Dunsborough, Bunbury, Bilborough, Perth, Mt Magnet, Mekatharra, Tom Price, Wittenoom (Blue Sky Mine), Hedland. Abut 6,500km, and stopped at pretty much every roadhouse.
