A bit of hard work!

A bit of hard work never hurt anyone. Our effort today was to trim about 50 large trees from around the camp and remove the thick, dense scrub that has begun to take over what was once a carefully maintained area.

We spent another night at the service centre so we could be back into Aussie Wide for the second stage of the repairs.
