Default Re: Al's world tour of New South Wales and South Australia.

Im still getting the trailer effe ready for the trip, I noticed today while under the yoot that the rear diff seal is wet and leaking, another chore to add to the list.

I put a bracket in the cab to take the ipad, I have the Hema map app installed on it.



I checked out Nepabunna and will passing right by their door so it would be rude not to drop in for a visit.

The trip has been planned and I intend going to the bottom tip of lake Eyre then back down to Broken Hill via Yunta.

Im hoping two weeks will cover it?

Sounds like a fun trip.
I think you need a few more power outlets on that dash!

Thumbs up Re: Al's world tour of New South Wales and South Australia.

Hi Al,
when we were working with the aboriginals at Nepabunna, they were planning on offering horse trail rides into their traditional hunting grounds but not sure whether or not that went ahead. Day and half day escorted tours were planned.
When/if you go through Copley, call into the bakery to sample some goods available only in a very few places, such as the wild peach (quongdong) pies and some other great feasts.
Only the outback bakeries do it best!

I took my camping trailer to the detailers for a cut and polish, and here is what they came up with.
I pick her up next Friday arvo.

Sorry Al,

I keep thinking there is something disproportionate with the last pic. Given the size of the rig, I thought it would be a 5th wheeler with built in pizza oven and fireplace!!

Happy travels.

I took the camper for a run to the Vic gold country yesterday, I broke camp at 3 am, something I dont normally do, but thanks to the Koogies fighting and making a racket I just had to leave.

On the way out I was traveling at just 80 Kms on bitumen when I spotted a wallaby just sitting in the middle of the road minding its own business.
I came to a complete stop and the wallaby looked like is wanted to hop in between the yoot and the trailer........

Looks I need to make a roo bar for the camper too, I really dislike damaging the wildlife.

Brickie,
I saw one of these trailers in a yard in Adelaide a while back. Couldn't stop at the time.
What have they got in them in the way of creature comforts?
