We'd like to announce the arrival of the newest member of our family! Little Beast (the $500 Dae woo) now has a brother! We picked up Junior from a farm near Newcastle and brought him home through a rainstorm...
He's a late 1997 white Toyota Landcruiser Troop Carrier complete with huge bull bar, winch, dual petrol tanks and snorkel. Shane has already started fitting him out for our cross-country Oz trip(s). He runs very well and we're happy with our purchase. Oh and did I mention that he's HUGE! The hood comes up to my shoulder and I have to literally climb into him but every other car certainly gets out of the way when we come up behind them!
We were able to really test Junior out when we took him down to Boat Harbour. It's a 4WD-only area where sand dunes pile up and 4WDers run their toys. The whole family went (we had a caravan of 3 cars) and had a wonderful day on the beach, complete with picnic, swimming and kite flying. It was a great day and Junior performed splendidly! Can't wait to get out into the bush and really get into it!
