On the 30th of September 1998 Steve and Maria finally embarked on their much heralded Big Trip. Steve, Maria, Scrubby (the electric wheelchair), NeWK (the car), and Touché (the caravan) attended the OEC-A Last Last Day lunch at Dingley and then headed north. Eventual destination Cairns. We returned on the 15th of November after covering more than ten thousand kilometers (6250 miles). The following images show the progress of the adventure for those that may be interested. Click on any image for a larger version. Now that we have returned additional images will be added as time permits.
