Success:




And the two young kiwi's camped next to us (herein known as the Cousy Bro's - cause we didn't get there names) got sick of flapping their paper plates in their fire pit and came and joined us for a few hours in the warmth.

trend setters, they were not:

The dew overnight was horrendous. I sat in the early morning listening to the "rain" falling from my awning onto the swag. The underside was as bad as the top side:




And then it was time for home, via some coastal scenery and yet another brewery...Hic:














Nothing even resembling even soft core. But just a chance to get out and use it for a few days. I've spend a lot of time on this, time to now enjoy:

A quick stop at a winery for some liqueur white chocolate and we came across this. Funny as bro - we were discussing those most viscious drop bears with the cousy bro's last night....ironic









So some more amber and lunch and we headed home after about 1000km's over 3 days. Happy to say, all the mods are working as planned

Rig's looking great. The Dobinson suspension makes it sit nicely too.
A good weekend indeed.
