G'day All,

Will get onto the shirt thing when we get home frome Canucklund.

If we still have a home that is.....

It's been a very trying time watching the fires heading toward our house while not being ableto do anything.

Got to within 400 meters to the north before the smoke cleared enough to let a bomber to get in and help the guys on the ground enough to douse it a bit.

We're hoping the hot windy weather on wednesday doesn't flare it all up again.

See you all soon. :character-smurfette: :character-smurfgrandpa:

have been watching the news/updates knowing full well that casa Smurff was right in the firing line. So pleased that (so far) any catastrophe has been avoided.

By the way...don't wear thermal underwear on the return leg of your trip. Won't be necessary.

Cruise control(s) ordered. SR357 ordered for the new topbox.

Hmmmm....should I ask for new wheels for the Golf while she is in an "approving mood"?

Jools & I have just spent two days fine tuning the Robe / Tanunda leg and after some serious clock watching have got a day full of twisties to sort the best of you out ;-) .

We'll be posting two file types up shortly, one Google Link and a Garmin .gdb file for those with a Garmin GPS to load up.

We 're hoping the opening rains come before the start day so it will be greenish for the trip so cross your fingers.

Regardless, we hope between Bulldog and Anne's efforts on the Vic side and what we hope to show you all this side of the fence, that this will be a trip you'll want to put in your albums to look back on for the future.

P.S. Could we get you all to confirm numbers 'cause it'll help us fore warn places we might want to let now numbers for breakfasts and coffees etc.

See You All Real Soon....
SMURFF
