The fun - the excitement - of leaving on a road trip.  On a road trip with a stupendous destination and event.  The look on those faces -- worth a million bucks.  It's one of the photos you should keep for when you're an old duffer, sitting in the rocking chair, thinking about what used to be.  Look at the picture - you'll be grinning ear-to-ear and the nurses and other geezers will wonder what the heck was in that last "medication" you were just given.

By the also way -- what's the 1x4 board 'tween driver and passenger?  Are you two that much a danger to one another?

That could be one of many things -

A - The dash prop, which keeps the dash from falling onto your knees - it IS a Ford . . .

B - The Nebraska Cruise Control, which once on the highway, one wedges against the accelerator in order to catch a few hours of sleep.  Bricks and cinder blocks are a viable substitute.

C - The Whoopass stick, which the quiet one uses to keep the talkative one from disturbing aforementioned sleep.

D - Or the most likely scenario, a makeshift armrest.

Safe travels, gentlemen!

Thanks Sid,the F truck has gone like a train,if a thirsty one. Dik,that's Pete's trailer after a 3ft ,280kg haircut.
 :evil: :roll:
Well folks we're on the edge of the abyss,Port Augusta. Slept beside the trailer in the BP truckers park,bit of shopping,some various liquids,ice,and we'll point this raggedy rabble at the desert. We spoke to Brett de Stoop last night,he and Nigel were going non-stop to the lake,he was going off like a frog in a sock.

Farewell normality ,we're goin in

PS. yrs Glen,I thought it was.lucky the Effiep was so clean when I got it because we sure have to fit a lot of dirt on it
