    I've got some clippers you can borrow for him if you want.:imaposer:imaposer

    Come to think of it they could both do with a going over.

    3.33 isn't a bad run, good on him.

    I don't mind his dreads, as I don't have much hair anymore. ....
    And he's a sparky and a lot of them have dreads, in Melbourne anyway......

    Brief...but expected given the weight difference between the two from a standing start, TP went past like he was standing still on the GoPro footage.

    So I camped at 160k fuel stop Sunday night.
    Toby, Dave, and Jack all came through.
    Toby's stop was about 7 seconds
    Walsh's about 10.

    Had a quick yarn to Emma Clair co-driver to Andrea Peterhansel in the Dakar electric car... finished the return leg without charging. I wouldn’t call it an eco car given the genset.
