Hi everybody we picked up our new van today Bl**dy awesome. Our first 3 vans were second hand this one is custom built and our first new one. Now we have a big learning curve for all the new toys it has. The Cruiser handled it well hope it does it as well when the van is loaded. Climbed up the Toowoomba Range without a problem. Can't wait to head to Sydney in a few weeks for our shake down trip. We will be heading to WA in December for a 3 year tour all being well.

From all you have said and the pic, it looks like something well worth "crowing" about"

Enjoy your travels.

Just looked at all your photos.

As one of your feathered kinfolk would say:

FFF-AAAA-RK

It's a beauty. 24 foot. Wow. That's biggie. Who said size doesn't matter?

Crowie, we will be picking our new van up (from QLD) in Sept and then heading to St George for the EO Gathering. Will we see you there?

Then we are going to spend a month or so exploring FNQ, I really want to camp on the shores of Lake Tinaroo.

We'll be back in Mandurah by December so if your in this neck of the woods get in touch.

cheers

Watch out for the white tailed rats at Lake Tinaroo. They love eating electrical wiring, radiator and heater hoses - anything rubber!
The sign at the entrance to the camping area advises that you should leave your bonnet up at night.

I can deal with a rat under the bonnet, but if any of these nasties come near me you'll hear the big girly scream miles away:
