G'day Family and Friends
I hope this finds you all in good health and managing to stay afloat in the turbulent sea of the Economic Meltdown. If the local politicians are to be believed, we're doing pretty well. I suspect we have a fair way to go and most of it down-hill.
The primary reason for this message is to ask you to hold off sending any large emails for the next three months. I will be trialling a prepaid wireless broadband but don't know where I will have network coverage. The speed is limited and the cost quite expensive so I intend to use it sparingly. My spam and junk mail tolerance will be set very low.
On Monday we set off to wander the back roads of Queensland and hope to make it as far North as Cooktown via Dubbo, Lightning Ridge, Longreach, Normanton and Mareeba. We'll follow the coast back as far as Gladstone and then duck inland to pick up the New England Highway at Stanthorpe bypassing Brisbane. Then South to Canberra before returning home at the end of October.
I will try to maintain some form of weekly update as we go along, please feel free to tell me to take you off my list, I don't want to bore you. If you don't hear from us for a few weeks please send me an email and I'll correct my list.
Stay healthy and take care.
