    great trip! and once again the mighty tw-turtle handled the ride without a hitch. (btw getting used to left hand driving wasn't that hard for me, it was remembering which way to look when crossing a street....)

    Love the pics and report, thanks so much for posting them. I've always had an interest in traveling to Australia, so getting to see parts of it through your eyes is a treat. Sounds like you had a great time, and the TW did a good job for you. Thanks, again.

    Thanks for the beautiful pics! The red dirt and TW taking a nap in the sand look familiar to me. Thanks again for the ride!

    Such a great adventure! Thanks for the good read. If I could afford it I would definitely get my TW over to Australia for some exploring.

    Speaking for a certain faction of TW guys I'm eternally grateful to yourself, Braden and others for reinforcing the fact that you didn't NEED the Beemer. Far too many are waiting on the Easter Bunny when the tool that's already parked in their garage will get them anywhere they wanna go.

    Salud!
