Thanks IV, that's a fair sort of list to try to knock off! We'll sit at Whistleduck Waterhole in the Davenports for a week(ish) first, then see where we can/ cant go. The Darling River option could be good, then backtrack into north SA. Tin flipping it is then!

Thanks all for your good wishes. We're getting excited now. One more sleep then we're on the road!

WOO HOOOOOO!

We stayed at the campsite on Lake Cawndilla a few years ago , It had very few humans and lots of herps and small mammals , we stayed a few extra nights just for the sunsets . not sure how much water is out there but when we were there it was right up to the fence line .

Thinking of you Steve. I hope you have been sitting around the camp fire downing a tinny or two.
Happy Easter to you and Darlyn.

That is truly awful. Hopefully the car is recovered quickly and Steve and Lynne can take off on their trip.
Sending positive thoughts their way.

wow, theres some real pieces of excrement out there,...

would it have been that hard leaving it on the side of the road for the police to find without torching it?

Just hope they had their camera(s) out of the 4WD. Hard enough to lose vehicle and equipment, much worse to lose precious memories.

The scumbags probably wanted to destroy any forensic evidence. Grrrrr! I seriously hope someone dobs them in.

It is heartening to see people pitching in to help out, although it's a shame it's necessary.

Steve and Lynne, I hope you guys can get going without too much of a delay. All the best!

G'day all.

This has been a wild ride. From the devastation of losing the car and all our posessions to the massively uplifting response from people all over the country. By a stroke of luck my laptops weren't in the car and I still have all my photos safe and sound. Apart from the laptops we have some clothes but that's about it. 4WD Action magazine has bought us another 80 series and they are kitting it out with gear from 4WD mobs and private donations. We fly up to Sydney next week to collect it. HOW GOOD IS THAT?

The car insurance guys (TIO) threw us to the head of the list and have already settled up (doesn't cover what we spent but very reasonable under the circumstances.) The contents, including all our camera/ fishing/ camping gear is covered by another mob so we will see how that pans out. There was so much publicity that the thief obviously decided to destroy the evidence. What a shame to see that beautiful car burnt out. Anyway this how I will always remember her.

Thanks for your support guys, we will be back on the road soon and the blog is also very close to launch. Remember the silver lining, it's always there.

4wd action has actually bought him an 80 series and is decking it out completely with help from their sponsors. Great bunch of blokes over there and the whole fourby community in general.

Really makes you wonder what sort of a society we all live in. Hopefully it gets recovered quickly, and undamaged. Fingers crossed!
