The next day I made my way back to Broken Hill and all bitumen too I might add.
I spent the night at my mates place with the intention of making it too Barham the next day to stay at my brother in laws place.

I made it too Barham but no one was home, the door is always unlocked there so I entered and got tea ready for when they got home from work, mashed spuds, peas, carrots and lamb chops all from my supplies as they were no longer needed and I couldnt see the need to waste them.

My sister in law was first home and was delighted to see me, shortly after my brother in law arrived, equally or more delighted they were to see that their tea was already organized and ready.

Echuca, the final stop, just 3 hours from home.
The road signs were saying home was just hours away, my heart sang out, just hours instead of days.
I could smell home was in reach, my house, my dog, but most of all my wife.

I grabbed a coffee and took some pics before I headed home.







Echuca was one of the busiest inland ports back in its day transporting the wool clip down the Murray river.
The town is now a major tourist attraction.

I arrived home on the 27th June 2013 at approximately 10.30 am.
I spent $1200 on fuel which at $1.65 per litre averaged out to 15 litres per 100 kms.
The journey was around the 5000 kms mark, give or take, and took 13 days.

End of journey.

Two days after getting back and I am now planning for next years trip.
Next year I will go in April when its a bit warmer.
Looking for tag along drivers or shotgun riders for the next trip.

Lots more pics and vids here.

Shoulda took it home. They make great pets, exceptall pet kangaroos eventually discover they like beer, then you can't stop em stealing your stubby.
Nasty drunks though, never let them have more than one drink or they start beating up your dogs.
