    Fantastic photos and great trip report.
    Brings back so many memories, but as you say, things are changing fast and we have been lucky to see these parts of the world before the "shopping centers" in the bush.Thank you.

    Paul and Lin, thank you for this entertaining report, one of many. It would seem that you are one of few still posting trip reports.

    Stan thanks - over the years I've been on the receiving end of lots of help & experience from other 4x4 people I feel it only right to put up what one can for anyone interested but especially for people who are just starting out on this amazing hobby.

    Excellent trip report - as usual!
    Thanks for posting.

    Thank you everyone for your input, it is just so nice to receive comments, CC also always welcome too - since I started taking photography more seriously I simply do not look at the world the same way anymore - I see pictures in my mind everywhere I go - my wife is long suffering with the constant stops LOL - life is short - get out there and enjoy - no one is going to put a cross on your grave that says....."He Wished"
