The van will also be heavy because I’m starting with full water tanks as well.

What did the weigh bridge tell you?
I’m still in but my old man is out here on holidays from the UK so he’ll be tagging along too. Two vehicles, myself and Marko will be leaving Darwin on the Thursday morning and driving straight there in time for beer o’clock

Thanks Ross, we figured since we were forced to fix it we may as well go all out.

Stops? What are they? Lol.
Iíd just planned to stop at Katherine and refuel and the the same again at Cape Crawford and just whenever we need to stop and stretch the legs but Iím not fussed really. Reckon if we leave Darwin around 06:00 we should get to Lorella around 18:00. If I donít see you tomorrow then give me a call when you get back in town and we can sort it out.

Lunch stop in Biloela. Jake sent the drone up to take some footage.
Everything is running really well for both of us. Saw 115C on the Ecutalk for the first time going up a long slow hill in 2nd but it all cools down very quickly.
Engines are purring now after a good workout.
