    Following another awesome buss stop in Griffith
    VWfreak and myself with our patient wives headed west on the Monday morning!

    Enroute to our first nights stop we were joined by tangles who bravely lead us to our campsite in the dark. Overland corner

    As we were getting done long overdue feed into our bellies the sound of another Kombi rang through the night air. Old man stopped by to keep ya all company.

    A great cruise with you guys. Pity the pub was shut and the servo had no petrol.

    Shortly afterwards, we were forced to cross the mighty Murray River in the greatest way possible.

    I handed the driveing duties to Narelle this afternoon on our way to ceduna with the grand idea of uploading some more pics but the internet access was bit up to scratch!

    But we gave collected Brian and wattie and made it safely to ceduna.
    I'll try and get some more pics up tonight.

    Great photos Bernie.

    Shame to hear about the demise of Wattie and his T3 auto gearbox.

    Those big scooby donks do give the gearboxes hell.

    I am on gearbox # 3 in my syncro now (wife has a very heavy right foot - seems to break every time she is driving it - well never broke while I was driving even in the bush).

    Caryy on the rest of you mob to Perth without incident!

    First to faulter was the T3...bummer! :cry:

    However, NOT a standard issue 2.1 Wasserboxer linked to that gearbox. Those Suby upgrades may be quicker and more powerful, but go nowhere without the gearbox. :umm:
