    Victorian High Country December 2012 & January 2013

    G'day all.
    Just spent 3 weeks on the road and have written up the trip on my blog. I'll paste the links here rather than cut and paste it into the forum as it has nearly one hundred photos plus some video and plenty of words. I've spread this story over five long pages so click on the links below to go to each of the pages.

    Mate,
    That looks like an awesome trip.
    The Rooftop maps are the best and you can check out my thread for those interested on how to scan them into Hema Navigator (search the forum) so you can display them in real time on your iPad.
    I'm going to use your blog as a plan for a great family adventure!
    Thanks for sharing...
