Shawsie,
At least I know what colour of truck to look for on Sat now. I was wandering when it would appear for all to see.

Garbutt,
Welcome aboard and I hope your travels go smoothly.

Cheers Trevor.

10 weks holidays is 2 years worth each side of the end of financial year. And living near Des Lexic means I need to get away from him as well as work.

Now I've got to put up with crap from 2 of you. Roachie, a word of warning about this bloke, he makes me look like a midget and is built like a you know what.
The Rig Pick doesn't give you an indication but a couple of years ago, he rode a bike across the Simpson in the Desert Race and finished. The seat broke under the strain on day 1 and he completed the rest of the race with the pole stuck up his ....

Welcome aboard GB and enjoy the fun.

Sorry Des but you are a midget, anything under 6' 5" is less than normal. I nearly posted my mountain bike as my rig pic but as you know it's not the one I rode across the SD. And it was my frame that broke not my seat. Might be looking for support crew for next year if you are interested, although I hear the sand is v. bad now.

Sand might be bad this year but I hear the state govt. is cutting back overtime and are going to bitumenise the French Line. Support Crew sounds interesting. When next year? I have a good air compressor. Ideal for pumping up bike tyres. LOL
I hear your HWS is playing up. You can't do anything without me finding out. Maybe I should have been a cop.

God help us that Des should ever become a cop!!!!!!!! He'd go around just booking everybody who drives a Nissan............just for driving a Nissan!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, I don't think he'd make a very good "support crew"............can't imagine him as an over-shoulder-boulder-holder; can you?????

Confucious Say; Just cause he can talk to a plumber doesn't make him a good investigator. And it was only an element and my HWS was fitted in 1977, yes 1977. Beat that Les Dexic.

We are heading to the Kimberley and then plan to wander southish, Pilbara, etc. Our friends coming with us have a son in Perth so want to get there but will depend on time left etc. Hopefully will run smoothly so we get to see much of WA although we realise it is a very big state.

Hey its great at my age to be a newbie at anything, although I am not as old or as ugly or as bald as Des Lexic. And I didn't join up just to skite about going away but it is a bonus.
