February 19, 2019

Just following our noses… A few sandy sections around the back of the salt lake, in front of the sand dunes. However as I’m lazy I just hit them with a bit more momentum rather than let my tyres down further. Then the track headed up into the dunes. Down went the tyres. Getting soft […]

AWOL Around Australia… The Festive Season, and a bit of a hiccup…

A bit of a detour, but we checked out the town of Lakes Entrance the next morning. The town is just another seaside fishing/tourist town, mind you the view of the inlet lakes on the drive in is pretty good.   I was keen to get a handle on this warning light issue. I bought […]
