Thanks JAS. I thought that the menu was really cool. I was the only non-Aussie in the group and at times they were definitely hard to understand.

Thanks Marko. I looked and noticed that some of these are larger thab 250Kb so may have lost something in reduction. These are scans from slides but I suspect that the originals weren't perfectly sharp.

You loved those Boabs obviously!!

That water crossing is a good deep one. I see the front of the cruiser is tarped up to stop the water getting into the electrics and cause the fan to get purchase and pulled itself into the radiator.

You often find the sort of humour we see in that sign out in the outback. They gotta amuse themselves somehow I guess. Can't shoot roo's all day long.

I didn't realise until you pointed it out that I had that many Boab pictures. Yea they are cool trees. Can you believe it, the Aussies on the trip tried to convince me that you could tap the trees and get beer out of them.

We must have had 3 or 4 crossings that were that deep. I didn't know about the tarp trick until that trip. While they drove the Landcruiser through the crossing, we had wade across with our valuables held over our head. A couple of times the water was up to my chest. Fresh water crocs aren't meat eaters, right !!! That's either true or they weren't hungry as we didn't lose anybody.

That's because many Nth Americans have fallen for it before :)

Not true at all. But they don't attack people due to our larger size.
