My rack has arrived, hopefully will be assemble and test tomorrow, I'll post a pic of the completed install.
Thanks to George for your advice and prompt service, nice Kimberley Karavan you have there BTW, is it yours or a loaner?
Great to hear the carrier arrived Phil. I'm still around if you have questions. Everyone else has taken off and I'm here alone still getting orders out. You cannot begin to imagine just how frustrating this is.
I was serious about the trip being a bit of a burden. We have to travel along tracks that I don't particularly enjoy in order to get the sustained loads and vibrations happening in addition to lots of direct sunlight on new rubbers we have had developed. I don't know anyone who would say that the thousand kms of the Tanami to Halls Creek is anything but a chore. We're over the Kimberleys in winter too. The mood will brighten once we're in the Gulf though.
Yeah we purchased that van late last year. It's quite nice and a great base to explore from. Plenty of different options out there and quite a few new players in this part of the market that we have been engaged to develop product for. It's good for business but the passion is still for travelling light and unencumbered into the rough and tough. That's where the riding, driving and adventure is the most rewarding.
