Flash back 12 months…

… to the single biggest misadventure of my life so far.

“So, we’ll just hook up the Hilux to the Patrol, snatch it out… should be 15 minutes. Hopefully.” Riley put on a brave face, but there was an undercurrent of worry in his usually optimistic demeanour. Seven hours in a mosquito-ridden mud pit will do that.

I’m referring, of course, to the Lakefield National Park experience on our Cape York trip last year. There was a 90-hour ordeal involving the cars getting bogged twice each, food poisoning and a run-in with knife wielding rednecks. Want to hear the whole story, and see the photo evidence?

Read them here… Part 1, part 2, part 3 and the final chapter. There’s even a morale graph of the experience if you stick it out to the end!

The glorious evening light in Lakefield. Everything kicked off as the sun went down...
