    Bout time for a catch up I think Cuppa! Am home for a bit again at the moment. Have you done the Creb Track yet? Good weather for some lunch and a swim on the track maybe?
    Had a beaut GU with 6.5 Chev TD, but sold the soul and now driving a 79 series dual cab. Yes, a Tojo on the Patrol Forum! Also having fun trying to build the ultimate Expedition Grade storage box.

    Got it. Will give you a call shortly.

    I have a bit of a list of places for you somewhere. Did it up a while ago but will find it and bring it up along with a map and give you some ideas.

    Our time in the Daintree is coming to an end sadly, but we are looking forward to February up on Cape York.

    We left the Tvan & Patrol in storage & went up to Portland Roads, Cape York for 5 weeks. A taster of what is to come later in the year when we return to the Cape with the Tvan. Now back near Cairns & keen to get back up the Cape once roads re-open. Lots of pics.

    Our Patrol & Tvan were packed & stocked ready to drive back up Cape York as soon as the roads dried out - but it wasn't to be.
