My samsung shows me at page 17. My computer at home would be at page 9.

We are currently ( 2.10pm) having lunch at some shopping centre north of Adelaide. Heading back to mechanic in a minute. Hoping new dizzy has arrived.
Not sure if we will make it to Mt Gambier tonight.
Might need to skip a day and cruise through tomorrow ( I'll beep & wave as i race by Steve ::)on the way to Port Fairy

All part of the adventure

I'd say Pete's on the money there.

Name a post that's missing and I'll see if it's there?

Hope the data out there is not expensive and you have a Blue tick phone.

Hi Surferboy, I saw your car laid up at the mechanics on Main North Rd. Gepps Cross. I was delivering parts there when I saw it in their driveway, I recognised it immediately. I hope they managed to help you out and not charge you an arm and leg for repairs. Good luck with the rest of your journey and stay safe.

Cheers Ole.

Surferboy,
The bloke on the bike in the green vest hasn't got much further that when we passed him over a week ago.

Day 5

Left Ceduna at 7.30 for the 765km drive to Adelaide, arriving at 5.40pm

Just doong quick splash & dash stops. Not to many photo opportunities .....
But there is always this one


Kimba. 1/2way across Aust.

We nearly didn't get there Shocked ....I was busy talking and missed the big sign saying TURN LEFT at Kyancutta Roll Eyes

Watched the dolphins playing at Port Augusta while we ate lunch.
2 hours out of Adelaide.You know Cathy is getting bored

When she starts watching the wagons shadow just to see if the surfboard is still on the roof... and then she starts to take photos to amuse herself.

Heres the evidence I need for longest distance travelled. Popped in to visit Paul. ( but he had gone to work )

G'day Les
We passed 3 or 4 pushbikes on this trip.
Coming out of Ceduna we passed an old horsedrawn gypsy caravan.
And the usual collection of roadtrains & wideloads

Hi nes304 & fcrb26
We were waiting ages at that crosswalk for some kangaroos to cross the road. We thought the local council may have installed them to reduce the roadkill Cheesy

Tapatalk came good and the missing page is back now Cheesy

G'day everyone ( especially anyone driving around Adelaide )

A BIG thank you to Louie at



We towed the wagon in without warning early this morning. They worked on it until after 6.00pm to get us back on the road to continue our adventure. Finding the electrical problem and running around to suppliers and wreckers to make sure the right dizzy went in. Tacho now works ( it hasn't for 2 years) Sourced further problems to ignition switch. And replaced a worn belt, noting harmonic balancer has problem.

Wagon is now running sweet Smiley

Thanks guys

Cool Cool Cool & Cathy
Does anyone know a good mechanic in Tassie who can fix an harmonic balancer before we drive home Huh Roll Eyes

Woke up at 8.00am to a cool sunny morning. Wished Cathy a Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary.Had breakfast in our Mt Gambier motel.Caught up with other West Aussies cruising to Hobart. Wandered into town and bought Cathy a nice birthday present.  Cruised into Port Fairy for lunch. Did some sightseeing. Took lots of photos.  Booked into the railway carriage. Relaxed with the other FC guys. Planned the Great Ocean Road cruise.Went into town and had a romantic anniversary dinner with Cathy. Returned to our railway carriage and retired to bed early.
