Well here we are in March.
Thanks to all our donors, so far we have raised $5109, great outcome lets do some more!!!!
The Merc is now shod with light truck tyres plus two spare wheels.
Have covered some 1500km and all seems OK, occasional glitch and some repairs needed. Have acquired a Hayes service manual in case we need to understand what/where/how to fix/bypass on the road.
Have scrounged a set of roof racks and a basket to carry big light stuff
BCF came to the party with a heavily discounted LED light bar and connection kit, its mounted on the basket up high out of the way of stray rocks etc.
Have tent, mattresses and miscellaneous stuff in the boot ready to go.
Have made up a bra for deep water crossing, hope it works ok?
