I've just left. Transferring to the RV in about an hour and then WESTMAR and THUNDA DOWN UNDER
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

I have left all the blokes I was fishing with and I'm back on the road...well I have stopped for lunch but you get the idea. I'm currently in Inverell about 5 hours from Westmar according to my car GPS.

Could you ask them whether they sell ice? I plan to buy some on the way up, but want to do so as late as possible!
