    I will be leaving on 26 April for 3 months in the Kimberley. The attached photo is the bus ready to roll. I will try to post other images as the trip progresses but for most part I will have no internet access.

    Have a great trip- set up looks good.
    There are lots of Community telecentres in WA even in North so you may be able to give trip updates.

    What route are you taking?

    If you have a digital camera you could post the shots to a Blog of your trip, as Brookie suggests, there are plenty of community telecentres in many areas.

    Just to keep you dreaming some photos. I have also been getting 22mpg at 85 to 90 Kmh or 18mpg at 95 to 100.

    Top stuff mate, keep them pictures coming. Love the one of the bus playing hide and seek, she looks camera shy. :D

    It's been going pretty good with only a set of points (new contactless) letting me down requiring a tow from Windjama Gorge to Derby. The photos below will make you envious.
