Jay and Jak, Verrrrry nice. Especially like the rego plates touch. Left no stone unturned eh? Boys and their toys! LOL. Packed and all ready to go with still 10 days left before you leave. Must be some sort of Bogger record I reckon. Angie

Jay, You have certainly packed some stuff in that truck. Now when people say that I have got everything in mine, I can tell them I have only got a small number compared to yours. On checking the photos, is there a reason why you have got your extra fuel tank fill on the opposite side to the main tank fill? Where is the reversing camera, TV and DVD player going? Brian

Brian The extra fuel tank is intentionally on the side opposite the main tank simply for weight balance. When I get to SIM, they will be installing two reversing cameras on the rear (oops - forgot to mention); one pointing down at the hitch and one point straight out. The screen will be in the same place as your camera. Will edit pics shortly! No TV but the small DVD/TV combo player is on the list. Anthony: I have the same kit as Griff - all nicely compact in one of the storage lockers. Macka: Thanks! tgintl/jay

Saw a bloke chucking rocks at sea birds one day.

Thanks U & J: Actually, if all goes well Australian 4WD Monthly is doing a photo shoot in June of Big Red and the Hedonistic Land Yacht.
The company that made the canopy regularly advertises in the magazine and the editor wants to do a feature article on the canopy and the F-250 upgrades. When he heard about the BT he wants a shot of Red towing White hopefully for the cover. Fingers crossed! Regarding roughing it - been there/done that! When we leave the BT 4 - 6 weeks each year (next year Cape York) we will have to put up a tent! Thanks again for the kind thoughts, tgintl/jay
