How do you think I feel!

The Prado is carrying about an extra 100kgs of Berri's finest at the moment. And I'm not talking wine or fruit juice!

Gerk,

I know what you mean. I spent ages on the outside because that is all I can see. Sometime in the future I will worry about the rest. Might fall of by itdelf I hope.

Would we do it all again.........you betcha.

I will send you a CD of the mud in your eye incident with Anton. Just got to work out how to download from the camera to the computer.

Certainly great to catch up with everyone including the C.R.A.P.P.E.R himself even though he drove the dunnydoor.

Perhaps a local hint might be in order as the truck and the cook's subie are both spik and span already. Spend $10 at the nearest car wash with a high pressure gun and just keep working away. It will come off eventually.
Had a good group of forumites there and talked heaps of crap.
We had in order of arrival (I think)
Andrew and Jen, Bob of Bob and Lex, Steven L now muddy doe,Roachie, Pesty, Peter and Mrs Lez, David outnabout, an ex forumite called Willem, Gerke and Nude nut who arrived while we were out on Sat arvo. Certainly was great to catch up with you guys.

PS I should also add that we had Mrs Al and Aunty Ruth with us via phone calls to. They were with us in spirit if not in presence. Heard some interesting tales from Birdsville too but we are sworn to secrecy.

It was a very good weekend and thanks to Mr Lexic. We got home around 7.30pm and have unpacked most of the stuff. Some mud came off in the rain on the way home but the rest can stay for a few days.

The weather was pretty good - sounds better than at Mansfield. Came home via Bordertown and it was a slowish trip. Hard to overtake anywhere because every South Australian was coming home from Victoria.

Thanks to Mr Lexic for the great location. We got there early coz we left home on Thursday and had a great camp site looking out over the Murray - my second Pic is taken from the front of our camper. Life is good. Was great to catch up with all those South Australians and Bob from NSW. Pity there wasn't any Queenslanders or West Aussies or Tassie or NT or ACT - have I got them all??

Bit rough that there was no Discount for Exploroz members!! hhahaha

Andrew & Jen

It was a great weekend. Our boys had a ball with your 3 young'uns and I notice you've got'em pic'd down by the river with their drizabones etc. The mob in the other pic look a bit sus' though!!

Hope you had a good trip back and managed to drag some of that rain along behind you?

Hi Roachie

There was quite a lot of rain and I thought that the wheel arches would be clean as a whistle by the time we got home. Had a look this morning in the light and there was still a few lumps stuck in there. Few clumps on the driveway this morning too.

Kids had a ball and it was great for them to meet some new friends...we all made new friends!

Cheers

Andrew

After Maaaaaa and her entourage left at midday today, I sat down with a hammer and chisel to get the Berri mud out from under the wheel arches. Some red sand and some black clay all mixed together in a lethal cocktail of stick forever. Still have to wash the car though but it is too bloody cold.
