Extremely well organised, and great fun.... :cup: :cup:

Got home a few days ago. Camper is washed and cleaned out. Have a couple of minor maintenance things to sort.

Patrol can wait its' turn....

So who is doing the next national meet.

We'll be there, wherever it is, barring the unforeseen.

7000km  later and Well over $3k in fuel bills, that’s what you get for driving a Petrol 80 in remote areas   ;D Mt Dare was a screamer, $2.50 a litre for unleaded and helped save a life whilst we were there for our troubles  ;D
But was great to make a Roadtrip of it had a great time :cheers:

Just rolled in the door yesterday arvo. What a GREAT trip  :cup:  Rawnsley park was excellent, well organised, good trips, great bunch of people. JCOJ, thanks again for a wonderful meet   :cheers:

From there we went up to Marree, visited Level Post Bay, then to William Creek where we did a flight over Lake Eyre to see the flood in progress.
Then up the Oodnadatta track, Hamilton Station, Mt Dare, then across the Madigan Line as far as Camp 16. Couldn't go any further due to floods so then went up the Hay River run to Jervois.
Made our way back home via the Plenty to Boulia, then Winton, Barcaldine (local show was on so stayed an extra day) then to Springsure, Mundubbera and home.

Total of 7357Ks using 1,149lt of Diesel for mileage of 15.6Lt/100K. Gotta be happy with that.   ;D

Now the cleanup begins..

Can't wait for the next meet   :cup:
Cheers, John.

I didn't even think to take any photos during the Meet - too busy organising other things.

If people want to e-mail me a photo or two I'm happy to put a report together.

Ok Peoples, I had better post that I am home from the national meet, (about two weeks ago), already had a few appointments, and a few more to go!!.
Had a pretty good trip, South Aust, NT, WA, only trouble was lost three days in Port Augusta to get a new radiator fitted.
Did 21507 Km
Fuel used 3,619Lts
16.78MPG  (means something in my head)
16.83Lt/100Km
5.94L/Km (for my brother who uses this method)
$5610.56
cheapest Berrimah NT $1.427
Dearest $2.119 at Earldunda.
Wanted to go to Tassie next year, but the planets are not aligning so looking at the next meet, Bring it on.
Scans last week show the critters are still corralled and under control.
Cheers all and catch you around the traps, I mean campfires.
