Have not been around on the forum for a month or two.... been away getting myself married. That all happened at the end of March over in NZ (Dunedin, where the mrs is from). Had a couple of weeks honeymoon in Fiji and got back last week. But the best bit is to come ... Now we have another 2 weeks to prepare the cruiser for a 5 week trip from Melbourne up to Fraser Island (start of the tailor season). Going up via the NSW coast and back via Carnarvon Gorge, outback Qld (will make up the route on the way), Cameron Corner, and outback NSW (again, not sure which way). About a week to get up the coast, and 3 weeks coming home. Beginning to think that 5 weeks is not long enough, but will need to get back to work at some stage.

Spent the weekend building a rack for in the back of the cruiser, also moved the cd stacker and inverter up here out or harms way (I am thinking river crossings that go wrong! - not on this trip, but later in the year). All up, can fit 5 plastic containers up here of about 15 litres each.

Rear Shelf

Jobs for this week are fluid and filter changes, and then start packing and buying groceries next week.... as you can tell I am itching to get away, have not had a chance with all the wedding planning, etc of the last few months !!!

Oh yeah, lashed out on a new camp oven today ... one of them oval shaped ones. Other one was a bit small.

Might meet up with some of you on the road. Look for the guy in the red 80 series with a permanent grin on his face.

Yeah Duncs, a problem with getting an el cheapo (freebie) web page is that it is limited in the traffic they let you support. Should be alright now though.

Hi Wazza, I thought you must have been over there getting hitched. Nice to see you back in Oz safe and sound. Have a good trip up north and try to drop into the forum occasionaly.

Congrats Wazz, great to hear you have taken the plunge! hope you have a great trip and dont need the things mounted up so high, although that puddle you drove Sarah thru on the Border track was deep too. All the best to you and your new wife.

Ha, a bit of both.

Ended up getting a filleting knife too, $45 for a Buck over in NZ. The place had Searco for about the same price, but I like the grip omn the Buck. A lot cheaper than Oz I found.
