the Syncro community hasn't faded any. We are still amazed at the
meeting of like minded souls and the hospitality given to us along
our journey in the form of driveways to sleep in, hot meals to share
and the conversations which lead to friendships we had never known
would come our way (It has now been over 3 years since we left WA).
As we have said before it is Andrew that looks for the opportunity to
swerve them off the road and talk tyres, heights, weights, or
whatever else can be fitted into five minutes or should l say five
East coasters can rest assured we have left the ocean and headed
inland to the centre of Australia then north to where we currently
reside in Darwin. Before too long we shall start our journey back to
the WEST through the Kimberley, Pilbara and back to Perth where this
trip all began. Not before more Syncro meetings we hope.
Speaking of Syncro's and meeting we had intended to drop you all a
line after the Cape York adventure with some 4WD photos and stories
covering the Overland Telegraph Line Track (OTL) but as usual we got
sidetracked with earning a dollar and time has now lapsed. In any
event we will attempt to fill you in on some `track' action and have
included some `hair raising' shots in the photo gallery. The story
that accompanies the photos is in the files section. Brian was first
in with the overview of the `Kombis to the Kape' trip and has already
explained some parts of the journey, we will just cover the OTL Track
in the following story
Thanks also to those that have shared their photos with
us and we hope no-one minds if you see them on this site. l am sure
we almost have every square metre of the Cape covered between us all!
I know some of the photos are not of T3 Syncro's, but we felt that
the effort that everyone went to attempting this amazing journey was
worthy of recognition, oh and they are VW's also!
Andy and Mel in OSSYNCRO (still!)
