Nicely done Sir! I towed a loaded trailer to Banja Luka (Bosnia) in one hit, a few years back. 1520km ish, so just shy of your standard!

However, there was only two of us to share the driving.....

I found a post card I sent to the missus from there the other day (they keep all sorts of rubbish, don't they?!), it made me laugh. I ought to scan it and post it up!

I am doing half of that drive later today, Melbourne to Sydney, and will be in a red Disco. If you see someone waving at you, you know why.

Watch the literally hundreds of 'safety cameras' along the way and remember it is double demerit points being Easter weekend. I know you will not be speeding, but they can be sneaky.

I did Sydney to Cairns last year in 2 days. That's about 2400km's. Great to have someone share the driving and sleep in a bed overnight. It will be tough going right through.

Keep safe.
