A big thanks to Diamond, Mrs Diamond and all their gems too...

what a trip, will Al ever get over his initiation to 4wding down that track..he says NO, but he keeps talking about it...it was pretty scary realising he wasn't breathing for about 5 mins during that "drive" and he is remarkably calm given he bent the sidestep, but I reckon he won't want to do that again in a hurry; the kids however loved it [and so did I just quietly...once we got to the bottom...lol..]

hmmm German tourists...now there's another story...

can't wait for our next trip to wherever...a great bunch and indeed fun times...

cheers

Yes Jim it was certainly a fantastic weekend, I think the only thing we didn't get weatherwise was snow, and I think we need to speak to Bundy Bear about how to deal with German tourists.

James and I had a ball, and I must say that having 8 children being so close together for four and a half days, not having met before, with not one argument or fight must come close to getting a mention in the Guinness Book of Records.

I hope Glayva Man and Ash have both recovered from the bull and bites.

Come on Mr Al, all will be fine, I am sure the photo of the damage will be blown up and framed in the shed.

Thanks again all for all the laughs

Until next time......Little Desert maybe......

Just Do It!
