Stainless and JohnBoy doing fine....

they told the imigration that they will follow a self isolation as they has rent something like an small RV and they are now on a tour...the last, they done the coast line in the south...

I'm in permanent contact with them via email and what's up.....

Anybody heard from Stainless or Johnboy? Just wondering if they are still touring Australia in a motorhome. Sent a couple of text messages but no word back. There was some talk that the US government sent out a message that all US citizens return home from foreign countries or hunker down for the duration. That could be months.

No worries Mate... after 5 or 6 flight cancellations and changes we are due to be April Fools in the states.  It has been an adventure worthy of Grandchildren stories for our prodigy... at one point we were coming back maybe in May.  We have been self isolating on the Great Ocean Road, from south of Melbourne to Adelaide and then ran to the Victoria border when they announced they would close... and then back on the GOR to way east... stopped before we got too close the NSW and headed to Doc G.   I don't usually drink IPA, but Dr G makes one that seemed to stay down.... We hung out in his shed to not screw up his isolation and distancing requirements. 
Hey, it was an adventure, and we got to see a lot of Australia that we would not have seen if we had actually gone racing... 1700 pics later and ready to go home to isolate there.  I have plenty of car work to do so staying home will be easy.  Oh, did I mention Linda has a list started that includes paint the house if I run out of things to do....
Y'all stay healthy and safe, we are OK so far....
