Wicked Beast...

Today we picked up our Wicked Camper which will be our home for the next six weeks. Well, I suppose you get what you pay for and we paid as little as possible still we're quite impressed with the size of our van (basically a converted hi-ace). The thing drives like a tractor though and the gears are impossible so we've already named it 'The Beast'...
Hopefully The Beast will start behaving itself or else it's going to be a long 6 weeks!

Today's also a bit of a funny day here in Oz. Steve Irwin the crocodile hunter has been killed and the country's in shock. The TV & Newspapers are full of tributes and even though he completely wrecked my head I can't help but feel really sad that he's gone. He was killed by a stingray off the coast of Port Douglas which just happens to be where we're going to today!!
