The only thing is I’m at Biddeston which is about 25-30mins west of the city and have about 300m of gravel driveway. I’ve got a concrete floor, trolley Jack and basic tools. So if you get stuck and it’s of any help, give me a buzz. I’ll probably still in the shed phaffing on the EK!

Cheers, Andrew
Thanks Andrew,
Three cars coming from SA via Goondiwindi. May call in and say hello if you're around.
Cheers,

Will make sure I’m here if you have time to stop in 👍. It’s been a good year this year so got plenty of water too if you want to give the cars a tub. What day are you planning to arrive in Toowoomba?

Cheers, Andrew

All good Clay. Depending on how the trip goes you might all be keen to get to the destination by that time. I’ll be home either way.

Cheers, Andrew

Arrived home an hour a go. Very tired but happy we decided at the last minute to make the adventure.
It was great catching up with our "Once a year family"
Tomorrow the poor old panelvan gets some true loving, it will take more than a few days. It was serviced before we left here now 2 weeks later due for another one. :-)
See you next year :thumbsup:

We stressed coming to the border, even though we had all receipts, border travel papers etc (because SA had shut the border to Sydney hot spot area)
There were NO-one on the border, so we thought that the fruit/vegie quarantene station would be it.
We saw several NSW cars pass us, not saying they were from the hotspots but.............. (no one to check)
Back of panelvan checked for food, and on our way. :-)
Back to the real world now
Glad you arrived back home with no dramas :thumbsup:

Looks like you got back just in time.

Picked the missus up last night from the airport. Travel from ACT is okay ... but waited for 1 hour and 40 mins for the passengers from the previous flight from NSW to be processed (hopefully correctly)

You're not wrong, got a text last night saying we had to isolate and be tested etc before we could leve the house again so I rang them to see whats going on. Turns out anyone who was in NSW from June 11 had to lock down , we left NSW on the 10th :ebiggrin: :ebiggrin:

Re-entered SA 2pm Thursday July 1 and tested negative at Lameroo 2:30pm CST. Fuel stop Tailem Bend. Home 6:30pm. Unloaded in shed while wife and son vacated the house. They stayed the night at friends around the corner, then moved to a holiday house at Port Willunga. Great beach weather, it’s hardly stopped raining and not got above 13C! Accomodation is readily available due to all the cancelled NSW school holidayers.
