Start as you mean to continue. Great blog.
Love the Wilko SMH reference.

It was always highly probable that on this trip, Wilko would chase some-one around a trailer, for what-ever reason ..... but to give money away! Really Chris??

New passenger
Ledlin has hopped on board today 19/5/18. Just got your debriefing from the previous days and your travels from Roper bar to Darwin and all the encounters with crocodiles and waywood greys. I have joined your expedition at the Bungle Bungles am confronted with an image of someone stuck in between a couple of big rocks. Is that Whittle I ask, I would hazard a guess that there would not be many of his friends that could fit through that one. Well done if he got out. I am presuming that you are up on the plateau. That is one of the most spectacular and remote areas and it is saved for those of us that drive a Toyota. I know that we might share it with the occasional Nissan owner. It is also one of those areas where the effort, the planning and the risk of breakdown and running behind schedule is ever present. I look forward to hearing your stories of your time up there. .

Slight mishap
Toyota has gone well but we did lose a wheel in the way (probably should have checked those nuts). All fixed though and made it to the falls which are the best I’ve seen!

Will have to agree that the pub at Karumba is an absolute ripper . Especially the view at sunset . Plus the sign that says don't swim here as the water is full of man eating crocks.

1) I thought Gus was a St Aloysius alumnus too? 2) Getting worries about Constance’s constant weeping.... shame u r not in Switzerland by her namesake puddle of tears as my alliterative tongue twister would then be complete! 3) Any Catalan sedition trial protests? Sure that wasn’t the queue you saw?!

Red thank you for your continued interest in the education of my son. NB heel not heal, navigation not navigation, wait not weight.

Wishing you well
Chris. Seriously I cant weight for more on the thrilling adventures of the ''Oz family Whittle". I think if you want to be really adventurous you should let Bex navigate using her Bata Scout compass in the heal of her shoe. Remember however that the sun is now in the "SOUTH"....tha'ts generally the bottom of the globe. Red

Menendez theory
Anna and I watched the documentary on the Menendez brothers who killed their wealthy parents about 20 years ago. Apparently the murder took place a couple of days after the family had travelled together on holidays with the parents sitting in business class and the two boys being made to sit in economy. Personally I thought that should have provided a complete defence. Apparently authorities had extract a half empty bottle of Dom Perignon from the father's back passage (enjoy your drink Chris, but dispose of your empties carefully).

Delighted that the delay in your first telegram was not because you were enjoying the hospitality of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum....and I don’t mean the Emirates’ First Class Lounge! Plenty of blog material in liberal Europe I suggest! Looking forward to the debate amongst your fans as to the family politics of flying with adult children. I convinced my brother that he should pay (cash!) for him and his wife and two adult children to fly Emirates’ Business Class from the U.K. to Africa.......... Salud!
