The van hasn't been idle...a couple of months ago we went for a weekend away to a little town called Milton, about 100kms south of home. We stayed in the Milton showground...
The amenities are somewhat lacking, and at $25 per night for a powered site, it's not very good value.
We went back down about a month ago to a nearby town called Ulladulla, and shouted ourselves an "ensuite site" for the weekend (living like royalty )...
Tomorrow morning, we head off to Tweed Heads (about 950kms from home), to attend a gala function (dinner suit, bowtie, that sort of stuff ). We'll be taking our time to get up there (3 days) and will camp for 2 weeks at Tweed while we do some rubbernecking around the area (...although it will probably be more like "rubber-booting", after the heavy rains up there over the last few days). Will give the new light board a good test over the 2000kms round trip. So far the van is holding together very nicely, and isn't showing any signs of problems, so I'm happy with how it's holding up after the project was completed 2 years ago.

Hi Monica, Unfortunately I won't be able to make the "Back to Murrurundi" trip this year. We get back from Tweed in early July, and I think I'll have had enough of towing a van by then, plus I have some other commitments in July.
Might catch up with you at the "Back to Shellharbour" event in October, with the ever-lovely organiser Jude, and the "ever-troublemaker" Geoff.
After a marathon effort, I have reinstated all the photos I posted throughout this thread - all 773 of them! . I ended up using the Postimages website, which apart from its quirky nature of 'freezing' during the hotlinking process after you've uploaded a batch of photos, seems to be quite user-friendly.
I have spent the better part of 16 manhours fixing up the pictures, so I doff my cap to Don Ricardo for the enormous amount of time and effort he must have spent fixing up all the photos in our Down History Lane section.
Once again I have gone through all the photo links in this thread, and edited them so they are now showing again. Hopefully PostImage doesn't shift their hosting location to a new web address anytime soon, like they did last year. Takes me hours to get them all sorted again.
