    Sorry to say, but for the first time since joining Earth, Trish and I won't be at O'Tooles this year.
    Trish has to have (another) operation on her leg on Thursday 16th - and she won't be up to travel for anything from a few days to a few weeks - depending on what they have to do.

    Enjoy the gathering all - we'll be thinking of you!

    Trish is really ticked off - she has been really looking forward to O'Tooles and then the surgeon told her on Wednesday about having to have the operation immediately.

    Went up to Little O'Tooles Sat Night, very dusty up there currently, quite a few ruts on tracks so take
    it slow if towing.
    River crossing currently rather low. Took the track up the Hill from Merringtons cam turn off, very rutted at one spot, bottomed out had to winch lol
    Also remember to thoroughly close rear tailgates, mine popped open unnoticed for a bit and deposited camping gear along the track :D

    Hi folks unfortunately I and Jo won't be able to join everyone at the Gathering at O'Tooles Flat. We recently lost one of our much loved pets, the fridge in the van decided not to work anymore ; and if that wasn't enough I was checking the Patrol for this trip I found that the electric diff lock didn't work due to the wires coming out of the front diff were broken. Just a minor job disassemble the front hubs, the axles and the diff to replace the broken wires.
    This really should not have happened as if it had been installed properly regarding the installation of the wiring length , which would mean that the wires had they been longer the electric diff lock would still be functioning.
    Anyway enough of that we will catch up with everyone next year.
