Here's one to keep you entertained. It's from the Saturday on the way to the salt, out the front of Dirty Dave's place in the Barossa Valley effecting the repairs to the F truck....there's plenty of room under the hood on those things, enough room for three decent sized blokes and a Clevo.... I think we were lifting the head on at this point.......you'll notice that Dave, uncharacteristically for a plumber, has his shirt tucked into his pants......



It was an interesting day that, after the mad thrash of the previous few weeks it was just what I needed to flog the last few drops of energy out of me before
we headed off into the desert for a week.

Yes, I have been absent. But I have been busy. Planning has started for the US trip in August, LA 2nd August, Vegas, Wendover, Salina, SLC, Boise, Portland, Seattle, San Fran, LA, home on the 5th Sept.

Woohoo.

Thanks to Chris, my BNI membership turned up last week. :cheers:
