    Next morning, just down the road, we rounded the bend to find a single vehicle rollover. Their other friends in another vehicle were there with a hulk of a roadtrain driver (later named care bear) and a passing nurse. Three backpackers were in the van and two got out relatively unscathed. The third, a girl from Hong Kong, was half hanging out the window underneath the van.
    Some guys had already driven the 25kms into Timber Creek for help. After a short while the cops rocked up, then the ambo and the local firetruck with cutting gear. After the ambo left, 2 hours later, I took this shot out the window after hooking the boat back up.
    On the left you can see Nazza talking to one of the backpackers who we then helped load up their gear and drop off at the clinic. Hope she is alright. Now we are staying a couple of extra nights in Timber Creek. Ride safe in the holidays.

    Young I-get-Mcslapped-a-lot, you will find that commenting on a lady's weight is the fastest way to find yourself eating "whatever else" too!

    Hey Naz! :wave

    You can put Charlie back together and explore all those fantastic Eyre Peninsula bays that we didn't have the time to hang around in...very cool. A South Australian exploration awaits you. If you can't have too much fun have waaay too much fun. :clap (Naz):clap(Matty) :happay(Ani)

    Sooray

    Um, I'm trying to keep up with this thread.

    I had Naz start off down the east coast of Aus and made her way to Taz, spent the winter down there.

    Resurfaced and made her way slowly to Western Australia (i think)?? And between winter and WA she has met Matty? From WA she has ridden to Alice Springs with Matty in toe. But now I see Naz is putting Charlie into the back of the 4WD??

    So, is this the end of the Naz and Charlie bike team and thus this ride report is coming to a close altogether??

    Just checking!!

    :D

    Hey sue :)
    Almost there now. Looking forward to a rest and then get out and explore.. After putting Charlie back together. Been nice being a passenger for a couple of days. Hope being back in Hobart doesn't suck too much!
