Oh no, what on earth broke this time? Surely everything on your car is new again by now. You've replaced it all haven't you.

Once the Mental Health monthly magazine sees the picture of you and the emu I think your licence might be up for review anyways......

Great video, pity the QVS was burned out. Do you know if the burning went out to Plumridge Lakes?

Cheers.

No, I'm not sure about Plumridge. Plumridge Lakes are about 180Km's North East as the crow flies from Queen Victoria Spring, or about 280Km's by desert track from Argus corner. That is a long way for a fire to travel, but out there, there is no fire fighting, so a fire could easily travel that distance, weather depending. With the fire from Argus out to the spring, we must have travelled 60+ Km's of burnt track.

It is nasty stuff for vehicles that burnt country. I cant believe we kept all our tyres. I have some maintenance issues at home atm that are taking priority on my time. I haven't even unpacked the car as yet. I'm dreading washing it as I know I scored some hard hits on the duco from that crappy burnt (no longer any) foliage.
