Hi all, just wanted to report another roll over within 60 klms of Birdsville. No-one hurt (small scratch - and the dog is o.k. as well) but the Disco is a write off, engine not in bad shape but body work wrecked. How do they happen - dirt road, speed, bald tyres, slight inattention (reading a sign about UHF frequencies). Please everyone drive carefully - you'll get there in the end, no need for speed.

G'day Ruth,

You must have been pretty busy of late....apart from a short response last night, I haven't seen you on here for a while now.

Thanks for the report (and timely reminder)....glad no serious injuries were sustained; except to pride and wallet perhaps.

Cya

Busy, busy - it's half time in the State of Origin and Glenn's red wine is losing effect, can even type straight now. LOL. Wallet affected alright - doesn't have insurance. Oh dear. CYA.

Ruth,
Now lets see.......who won the game last night (we don't get that bum-sniffing game televised in this state....thank goodness for small mercies!!)
2 Ultimates eh? Hope you gave them the same excellent treatment that I will be looking forward to in due course.!! LOL

Member - Glenn, Alleged Would-be Insurance Assessor, reports,
engine o.k. but body work, done in. In Queensland, about 60 klms towards Windorah - before turning off for Innamincka. diesel - hmmmm, will have to collaborate with Glenn at breakfast on this point. think - petrol. Will advise. Have it on good authority that your relation (nudge, nudge wink wink) is to buy wreck. Have not yet posted to Judith - but will do so when traffic eases off and can get out of front yard.

Ruth, good advice to all there. I remember the roads where the stones build up between the wheel tracks and you can jump around a bit. I think that some have not had sufficient slippery road experience sometimes - rolling stones, wet - greasy. As distinct to wet and BOGGED LOL, just to remind you I can laugh about it now. Have good piccies to prove it.
Cheers,
Who?
John

Someone here from Timboon this week - can't remember, will look in visitors book - had too many of Glenn's red wines, too tired from booking in 300 per night. Stuffed in fact. Thank goodness visitors came from Somers Vic - they fed and watered me whilst we worked on auto. Will tell youu who tomorrow. Sorry Glenn's red wine typed thzt.

Always called Hiluxs - roluxes here but still laughing about Landrollovers - if only you knew. About 8 out of 10 here are Discoveries. Defenders just fall on their sides.
