yeah Carl t was a really good way to spend a Saturday. The only way it could have been better was if it flogged down hard but you cant have everything.
On a side note, my stich is near dead, its a bit like wearing a heavy tee shirt so another is on order.
I'm very late to the party Drain: inspiring stuff mate. I spent last week driving my Prado around 3K through regional NSW to catch up with family. Some of the regular highways that would be used in any NSW jaunts are becoming very cut up after the recent rain. Rain + Trucks = considerable road damage. I got to thinking that I would not like to hit some of those potholes in the dark. Pleased you managed such a sterling effort with no major dramas.
