Gee, 4 days is a bit rich for a 3 hr job at most.....don't leave anything loose in the van and tag the bolt ends with tell tales, just in case. Didn't think Bridgestone would do proper truck aligns, vans need places which can do semi's all hooked up, not hard just need the room to do drive thru.
Oh yes they do trucks hooked up its a huge depo
As for new place its all about hoist time im told oh well it is what it is i will get them to.look at a few other things that need attention but will try for warranty work

Hi,
had a lovely three days (two nights) up at Kirth Kiln.
Added two new walks: Tomahawk Creek circuit and out to ShipRock Falls.
Perfect weather, hospitable campers (no generators, no music), and only 55kms from home.

Our latest addition to the Penguin is a fly screen for the door. We went for one of those blue / white dangly plastic strips. Found them in Bunnings.
Found an easy way to mount them above the door and easily remove them when we swing the top half of the door up when packing up.
Very pleased with the result. We can mostly leave the door open now. Much more convenient.

Chalked up another new item cooked on the chippie: Bread.
Turned out quite well. So we can now cook Damper and Bread as needed.

cheers
Mike

Warm fresh camping bread simply cant be beaten, with butter of course. Damper is for lazy people who cant be bothered cooking proper food ;)
