They are hopefully going to get me some enlargements, as all I got was small pictures..
BUT WHAT A GREAT STORY!!! Shed blew completely apart, torn to pieces and there sits their Bushtracker happily.. ! Ha! I love stories like this.....

"I am writing to inform you of our BT caravans performance during cyclone Larry.
We are working in Thailand, at the moment,and only heard about the cyclone as it was crossing the coast. It came through Innisfail up onto the Tablelands and over Malanda and blew the shed away the caravan was parked in. The van moved only about 100cm, had a side light damaged and some water damage inside due to the hatch beinging open and also water getting in onto the bed area. Also a paint rub where something must have swipped it. Amazing seeing the shed just peeled of around it. Needless to say we are very happy with our BT performance.
With thanks Mike and Liddy See attached photos of BT in what was the shed and shed now."

I will update with the pictures when I have them, but what it shows in the small pickies is a perfectly normal looking Bushtracker van sitting there on a slab... Only off in the distance you can see the torn up remains of the shed spread all over the paddock... Ha!

Not hard to show pics now with the upgrade.

One advantage of using the Photobucket site is that the photos are automatically re-sized.
So load them into Photobucket and link them to the site.
Store photos here to link to posts
Or re-size them, put them in your album and then link them to the post.

Bob

Yea, I'll do it, but the ones sent to me were little like thumbnails, 8 or 9 kb. They are going to try and get me the originals or larger ones at least...

Well that sure beats Cyclone Angie.

And makes the new photo facility worth the work.

Did I mention that the rates are going to double to cover the "Photo Thingy"?

Only applicable to expats though. "Cause they get the biggest benifit.

Ha!

I'm sure Steve would love to pick up the extra tab involved in having the photo thingy available. Good publicity I reckon.

Anyways, as I see it, we are acting as Bushtracker's international representatives over this side of the globe and should be eligible for a spotters fee.

Going rate is one packet of Tim Tams per Bushtracker ordered from the UK.

What do you reckon Steve?

Sounds Great Angie!

Maybe you should start our London Dealership..... We will throw in the Tim-Tams, you organise the freight for Demonstrator vans in the UK.. Ha!

I thought the photos were magnificent, shed totally destroyed and blown over the paddock, and there sits the Bushtracker... LOVE IT !!! Glad I could share it with everyone for fun...

We are another lot that had the Bushtracker survive Larry. We are on the northern beaches of Cairns and our Bushtracker was subjected to 180klm winds. I work at the airport and was unable to move the van due to my commitments at the aerodrome. All I had was jack stands at either ends of the chassis, it did not move, no damage or leaks. As the Ranger says build em right!!!!
