|Cruisers maiden voyage with our van.|
With 2 weeks before we leave Kalgoorlie, we had a Party invitation to a friends 50th just outside of Toodyay (about a 6 hour drive) - so we though perfect opportunity to take the van as we hadn't towed with the new Cruiser yet!
Well everything worked perfectly :) Dave was really impressed with the power of the new car. But of course after confirming we do have the Power it was time to back off a little to save the fuel :(
We free caamped the first night just outside of Kal at Boondie Rock:
Then we headed off the next morning after a lovely cooked breakfast :)
We came across a few wide loads too:
We got to the party about 4pm - it started at 5 so plenty of time to set up:
|Ha - didnt have to do much, just level out with the airbags! :)|
The party was on a property in a shed. Anna had chosen an anything 60's theme for the occassion
Everyone really looked great:
|Bob Marley - AKA Squid!|
|Dave, me & Scooby AKA Bob!|
|Margie & Ray|
|Hippy & The Mad Hatter|
|Dave & Bob|
|Every man's dream Bar in the shed!|
|Scooby & Cruella - Bob & Birthday Girl Anna.|
It was a really good night, we retired to our van about 11pm after quite a few Bundy's :) But the rest partied on until 2am!
We were treated to a lovely BBQ breakfast before we headed off the next morning.
We spent Sunday night at another free camp - Karalee Rock, which was pretty good. Heaps of vans in there.
Now we are back in Kalgoorlie with 11 days until we leave - Yeh!!!!!!!!!
We head off on Saturday 5th May heading up to Leonora than across the Great Central towards Ularu - Weather permitting of course - otherwise it is across the Nullabor.
We will keep you all updated as things progress,
Cheers & Happy Travels
