Thank Goodness They're Okay...

M'brother-in-law and his partner have been driving around Australia for the last couple of months.  Plans were that they'd arrive in Sydney in a few weeks time.  However these plans got derailed when they ended up like this...
And the other guys ended up like this...

The full story, told characteristically matter of factly, is here.  Check out the spot reference in the post to see how ridiculously remote they were.  The more recent posts also tell of their journey back to Darwin on a road train.

Here at Chez Nicholas we are just SO GLAD noone was hurt, and can't wait for Dr C and Ann to arrive here in a couple of days so we can hug them to bits, and feed them, and have free babysitters.

Argh, life just knocks you sideways sometimes.

So glad no one was hurt. That looks awful.

Crikey. Hard to believe they all came out okay. So glad to hear it.

Amazing, what are the odds of the two currently running land rovers in australia running into each other?
