Hi Stuart & Nicky,
An awesome blog. You are making fast progress. We are stuck here in Karratha, have been now for 2 weeks and will possibly be 2 weeks longer. The rear Bumper bar on the van collapsed 240 km south of Karratha on the Nort West Copastal Hiway. Gretting parts from NSW, QLD and SA to fix the problem. Fortunately we are covered by insurance. Travel well and keep safe. Love Brenda & Frank
