Ozzie Update

AA little update:  not Yamaha-related.   We finished our initial plan of tackling 3 iconic Outback tracks-the Oodanatta, Tanami, and Gibb River Road.  We threw in The Painted desert and a few side tracks for around 3500 kilometers of dirt.   The Patrol is running sweet, sipping fuel and keeping us warm and dry.  So we made it to Darwin and asked ourselves "Is that all there is?"   Turns out, no.  Next up the York peninsula in tbe far North-East corner of Australia.   More to follow.
