Made it home today about 7.00pm, think i got a bad dose of fuel at the Dog on the Tuckerbox, the Explorer starting missing, vibrating and losing power about 4 or 5Ks from the Dog after we fueled up, wont know till we put it in to Ford on monday, didn't think we were going to make it for a while there the way the car was going. Anyway i would like to thank everyone for their hospitality and offers of help for our little incident while we were away, meet some great people John & Heather aka JohnR (VIC) who looked after us for a couple of days thank you again, Steve, aka Muddy Doe who drove over from S.A to meet for a day out in the Grampians, Nino & Kerry who we visited at there home for a talk and thank you for coming out to see if we were OK when we got stuck thanks Nino, Geoff and family aka Bonz who came to John & Heathers place for a cuppa and to meet us great to finally meet and Bill a good friend of John's who gave us a tour of Ned Kelly's house, which we didn't expect that John, a bonus indeed. All in all a great holiday in VIC, i love Victoria.

Barry, Kerry, Ness, Pepper and Honey.

Pics soon.

Tis a fantastic thing when you can travel and meet the exploroz folk and do stuff that you otherwise wouldnt have done. Glad that you met so many people. It's a funny thing - we have met many more exploroz people from interstate than we have met from Victoria!

Great to catch up with you and see the video and relive some of our own (mis)adventures. The kids also enjoyed the visit too which I was a little surprised at, usually the grizzle about being dragged along on Dad's 4WD visits. I asked Imogen and she said it was fun hearing everyone elses stires of getting stuck hahahaha I told he you had to have the adventure to tell the story.
