    Around Australia in an American Truck and a 300x

    Hey nerds,

    Some may know that I've been traveling with the ski for the past couple of months.

    I left Sydney in a 2012 F250 and headed north for a 18,000+ mile trip around Australia. I'm roughly half way through and thought I should share it with you all.

    The blog of the trip is here: http://2manyjaunts.blogspot.com.au/ in reverse chronological order (most recent place visited first, so click the links to find out how it started).

    There are heaps of pictures if you are interested in what Australia looks like. It even has some pics of the massive crocs we get here. Plus of course, the Great Barrier Reef and lots of aussie dirt, coastline and inland rocks!

    Below is a video of an amazing place; the Kimberley's in Western Australia and a massive isolated lake.



    Hope you enjoy this little piece of Australia.

    Cheers, Mal

    Cheers guys.

    Retro, we should be in Perth in a couple of weeks. I'll shoot you a PM when I know the dates. I'm keen to have a ride around there for sure.

    Ed, I'd love to retire and do this for the rest of my life, but I'd never afford the fuel bill of the truck and 300x without a job

    Dave, Bells Beach is in Melbourne. I wont go there this time, but yeah, you are right, the waves are big and clean. I lived in Melbourne when I was younger and went there a few times, nice place to surf.

    It depends where you go. Not many people live in the "dirt". The east coast, back home, is very green. Most people live here their entire life and never see "the outback". It's a very big country.

    If you do venture from the normality of the big cities, you see some amazing stuff. This is what I saw when I went diving yesterday at a place called Ningaloo Reef.



    I love Australia, we have it pretty good here (apart from the cost of jetskis and cars).
