Support "Roy the HG" - Car 13 in the RFDS Outback Trek


Anyone who travels in the bush (and it doesn't have to be too far from major centres) is a potential user of the Flying Doctor. Car accidents and unexpected illness see "The Doctor" helping out travellers regularly.
Member - STOCKY (QLD) is preparing to take on the Royal Flying Doctor Service's Outback Trek in 2013 and ExplorOz is a proud supporter of his Team.

Stocky and his mate Hans have been busily preparing "Roy the HG" for the Trek (including the application of some ExplorOz Mega Bumper Stickers). To find out more and keep updated on their progress you can access his Blogs list here. And don't forget to visit their donation site if you'd like to make a contribution to this worthy cause.

Submit Blogs via Email from your Phone!
