Hi everyone,
Great site - can't wait to see more track maps...
New to the site as of today - I am a mum of 4 and drive a Mitsubishi Delica (stop laughing you 'cruiser and patrol owners!!) which we haven't done anything to other than a snorkel, heavy duty bash plate, cooper st's and racks with open sky awning (which is fantastic by the way).
We are hoping to travel around Australia from Victoria in April - love any tips anyone might have.
Wish list for the car (if we can't get a 'cruiser or patrol - I know..):
Suspension and springs upgraded - extra 2" lift with 33" tyres
Long range fuel tank
Basket for roof
Rear air lockers one day...
Have to say I love the Delica but I am still unsure about her underbody clearance, ramp over and body height (ie rollover..)
Anyway enough from me - looking forward to reading everyone's adventures and hints.

gudday emmum, yeah its a great little site with loads of potential. im looking forward to watching it grow...
welcome to the forum.




Hi emmum,

Great to see another Mum on the site. I have 2 children under the age of 4 and the kids really enjoy 4 wheel driving. We drive a Jeep Patriot so I know what you mean about the clearance level as we were driving today and I was cringing every time we heard bump, bump, scrape from underneath.

Do you get to go out 4 wheel driving much? I hope you have fun on the site.

Welcome to the forum - sounds like your Delicia is well kitted out already for the big trip.
There was one on the forum that had been driven across Russia & was doing a lap of Oz.

Not sure if I'm reading this right, but it looks like you're all welcoming a member that originally posted their intro in January 2008....

It would be much easier in the new Forum if the joining date was plastered near the Avitar like in the old site & I also liked the Postcode or Town/Suburb to see where they came from.
