VINTAGE ADVENTURER

Finally we all arrive safely at Byron Bay!!
After a bit of a scare with the Rattler having a water over flow issue from the reserve tank due to it being to full, but all is well!
Rod has driven the DRR model A the entire way from steep point to Byron bay and up to the light house our final destination.
We all go down onto the beach, Where Rod will place the water he has taken from the Indian Ocean in WA and put it into the Pacific Ocean at Byron bay (A tradition he has done on previous adventures from ocean 2 ocean symbolising the venture and its success)
All the crew are safe and sound and a little sad to say it's all over, we've all had an amazing time on this adventure and wouldn't swap the experiences we've all had for quids! Thanks to the amazing man Rod Wade and all he has done to make this trip possible...
Make sure you keep an eye out on our Facebook page and website for Rods next up and coming adventures!!

Day 16: Quilpie to Goondiwindi
Our second last day of this massive journey was close to 850k trip and the morning has had its difficulties, first the Fuso Truck ran out of diesel (luckily we had a few jerry cans spare) and second the Rattler had another flat tyre. After all that was taken care of, we went in search of a petrol station within the next few kilometres as we were worried about being stuck on the side of the highway,
and just in the nick of time we found one!! Eulo Service Station to the rescue!!
The rest of our journey was going well, however 100kms out of Goondiwindi the Mitsubishi hit a Roo. Fortunately it rolled straight under the car and not up and over, so minimal damage was done - just a bend licence plate and snatched up bull bar, close call! We finally arrived at Goondiwindi for a well needed sleep, ready for a 5am start off to Byron tomorrow.
