Hi All...well we had to move again on our way to Armidale and as we were heading North we spotted another Bushtracker heading South as we crossed between Forbes and West Wyalong...great to see you and hope to catch up soon.

We just love spotting other BT's on the road....

Hi innkeepers have being reading your story of progress with regard to you picking up your bushtracker. Could feel your excitement building up to the day you were to pick it up. I don't mind telling you we were more than a little jealous. Then all of a sudden there it was a bushtracker just for us. As you were picking your BT up we were flying to Queensland to pick ours up and drive it back to WA. You can't wipe the smiles of our faces and having trouble coming back to earth it all happened so fast.

Congratulations to both of you on picking up your new babies. Hope everything goes well for you.

We saw a BT going through Noosa yesterday and went and met the owners at the Noosa park later in the day. They are a yound family on their way around the block for 12 months.

All this talk about travelling we will have to give ours another run in a couple of weeks time and head out to Boulia.

Enjoying the friendship of BOG members

Hey Shortcuts,
Great to hear your story and yes, exciting is really an understatement isn't it....We just love our BT and after having spent the last 8 days in ours we can see why everyone else loves theirs too....Just so well built and engineered from the design to the factory and out in the field. We seriously considered buying a motorhome to get quality construction and fittings as all the vans we looked at were just so flimsy and roughly slapped together...then we found Bushtracker and that really suited our application as we didn't want to lose the versatility of our Landcruiser....Hey how did you fly to Brisbane and drive your BT back to WA???

Thanks Brian... nice of you to offer kind words of support and we must say that we're really amazed at the free flowing friendships that come from one and all on this forum... a great place to be.

We will be in your region in Mid August when we drop the BT in to Bushtracker to get a few more toys added to it....However if you're heading off to Boulia, we'll probably miss you.......On the list so far is Awning and Webasto and Cargo Hold Lighting and Suction Line too...thanks for the good advise there...a great idea for water management. Then come September we're off in the BT somewhere for the whole good is that...yeah I know....but we just love it.

Keep well and we hope to catch up with you on the track somewhere.
