    The blog is not finished yet - the trip is but I have been kept busy by a trip back to the UK
    Anyway I am back writing it again and we are getting into Qld so I thought I would share it with you all....

    We drove 36,000 kms around Australia in a Ford Maverick 4x4 with a roof top tent
    Jan 09 - Jul 09

    The size of the country is mind blowing and you just don't understand that until you drive around it!! It is such a beautiful country with so much to see. 7 months was not enough to do it all but we gave it our best shot!

    Not a huge % of the trip was 4x4 but we did do Birdsvill track, big red, cape york, coffin bay, bungle bungles etc

    Here is the blog going (I am still finishing it up - Cape York back to Bris is a work in progress)

    (The blog runs a bit back to front so if you want to go from the beginning use the date selector on the right hand side of the screen)

    I am back at work now and just want to be back on the road, I miss the freedom a lot. Such a great country to travel!!

    Hope you enjoy our little adventure

    Hi All the blog is tarted up a bit now! And looking good if I do say so myself!

    I have added Cape York QLD and a Campsite Cost sheet (If it works!)
    Can't beleive we spent $4,800 on Campsites!!

    Also added is a fuel cost sheet it is not finished yet but it gives you an idea of how big Australia is and what fuel you will need in a 4x4 to drive around it

    Happy reading and feel free to comment on the blog site

    All the fuel and camp site costs have been added to the blog now and the totals are pretty hefty
    You can dowload the new spreadsheet from the right hand side about halfway down

    Hope its useful
