ID:	2221Hi all i have been travelling since January in the Flying Brick from Forster NSW up to Dubbo out to Wellington free camping on the way staying at Ponto falls, Forbes, Narrandera, Tocumwal, Rushworth,Echuca picked up some great oil here and topped up tanks continued on to Meredith then onto Geelong out to Portarlington Back up the road to Port Melbourne across to Tassie on the Spirt of Tasmania have been lucky so far picking up oil on the way been on Bruny Island for a few days found good oil here and filtered wih my portable unit filled the tanks and took an extra 40 litres of filtered oil with me while we were on Bruny we did a Pennicott tour down south to see the Tassie fur seals it was a great trip and would recommend it if you are down this way the weather has been a bit cool and windy but a bit better than the mainland currently.
    We are currently at Gordon making our way to Huonville the bus is going great and have not had to change any filters so far
    We will keep you up to date as we continue on our journey signing of for now long time svo users Kev & Barb
