The rest of your crew would be having a hard time keeping up with the new family ride.

It’s 0724 and we’re just passing through Boggabilla - we’re a convoy of 4 now. We just took the obligatory border photo

“Tub” aka Brett’s parents Terry and Gayle


Phoebe is already “too cool” to have her photo taken with her Folks (at the ripe old age of 3 )

Still at home in Keith, SA! Can’t wait to hit the road to Adelaide on Tuesday (to drop off the fur kids and do some shopping), then Mambray Creek and on to Rawnsley Park! Can’t wait! :cheers:

I am having a good run, left Ipswich about 10am, did 530km to about 90km West of Moree.
7 odd hours on the road today another 500km, and now resting at Cobar.
Not sure whether to stop around Broken Hill.
Getting closer!!
