Wow, time sure is slipping away!

Sure is, only five weeks until we’re due to leave, and I’m still trying to get Reds transmission serviced! There are so many things I had wanted to get done before this trip, I think it’s time to really pull my finger out and get moving!

Here’s a brief list of things I need to sort out before I head off:

-Get reds transmission fixed, it’s been playing up for a couple months now.

-Build new water carriers to go on the running boards, that’ll be an adventure in engineering ingenuity!

-Fit new mattress: I inherited a great old caravan mattress from a friend, just needs a little trim here and there to get it to fit snugly, no more 2000Km back pain!

-Storage: Red’s already missing the bottom part of his rear seats, I keep meaning to strip the backrest parts out too, just to have a little extra storage under the bed.

-Odd little fix-it jobs, ie, sometimes the rear window slips off its rollers and won’t wind down… I don’t feel like waking up trapped inside once we’re in the desert! A set of lights in the back are still just wired up with their temporary fixings, need to finish them off properly.

Well, I think that’s enough to keep me MORE than busy for the next five weeks! In that time I need to finish off a promo job I’ve been working on for a mates gym, not to mention all the other projects at home! I have decided, it’s not that there’s not enough hours in the day… there just aren’t enough days in the week!
