So you made it!…

What do you reckon? Is it worth spending money on?…

For the unfamiliar the two pics above are of an EH Holden crossing the Nullabor in 1968 (the Nullabor is a long stretch of road in the desert linking West Oz to the east) and a dunny/outhouse. You may know it as a toilet, or if you are an American it would be the bathroom!

I’m thinking these are two very Aussie icons and symbols of the great oz backyard – the backyard at home and the backyard that is the whole of Australia.

Thanks to my friend Roger Smith for the great Nullabor image. This was one of the roughest and toughest drives you could imagine before they got round to sealing the road. I have done it four times now – but never while it looked like that!
