Four of us left Perth today, heading for Townsville to visit a mate of mine. We intend to go via Birdsville and two of the guys (my brother and his mate Tony) will be splitting off after Birdsville to visit some mates of Tony’s. Me and my mate AD will go onto Townsville and then meet the other two later before heading home via . . well, we’re aren’t sure which way yet, but we all agree we aren’t interested in the built up areas of the east coast. So, no Byron, Sydney or Melbourne. Hopefully we will fit in a visit to Kangaroo is. (finally !) My brother is a mad keen photographer and I expect he’ll write a proper trip report when we all get back to Perth, probably after the Border Run. If the mods are happy, I thought I’d just post a pic or two each day here in the Oz forum and if anybody is nearby and want to catch up for a beer and coffee they can get in touch with me. I am traveling light and posting from my iPhone only, so if anybody wants to catch up it’d be easier for me if you just text me. 0411 55 6927 So, tonight, after a shitty wet day we have holed up in Coolgardie in a Motel. Here’s Tony and AD getting dry by the heater in the motel restaurant. Cheers Andrew. aka Eaglebeak.
