Hey everyone, this will be a quickie because I am currently in the "Asshole of South Australia", at the Pink Roadhouse in Oodnadatta (look it up on the internet because they have a site!).  I am surviving the outback!!  Our little group is really multi-cultural - Slovakeins, German, Icelandic, Chinese, Australian and Dutch.  There are 9 of us in total including the driver.   It has been a bit challenging with all the personalities and basically spending 24/7 together in not the most ideal of conditions - 40 degree heat, flies galore (yes I am wearing a fly net over my head) but we have been having tonnes of fun.  I almost feel like I'm on a reality TV show.  There is also a little romance budding with the driver and one of the girls which kind of changes the dynamic a bit.  The things we have been seeing are amazing - tonnes of wild kangaroos, emus, lizards and breathtaking landscapes and such.  I haven't seen any dingos yet but they were in our camp the other night and I did see the 5600km dingo fence.  I will tell you all more about it later when I have more time.  We are just about to go take a swim in this local swimming pool to cool off a bit. We sleep under the stars (thousands it is amazing) in our swags.  Tonight is new years eve so this will be a different way of spending it but we stocked up on the booze earlier today.  I lost all 300+ photos on my new camera yesterday by accidentally reformating the memory card so I had a really good cry about that one...sucks big time but the group will share their photos with me. 

Anyways hope you all have a good time ringing in 2007!

Probably won't be able to update until Alice Springs (though who would have thought I'd be able to update here??)

Hannah- thanks for the Christmas Card! Sounds like you're having an awesome time on the road again. Hope you have a great New Years! (I guess you've already had it!) You are definately invited to the wedding if your back in Canada at that point. I'm gonna invite Katie too so that would be awesome if you guys came!! Anyway thanks again for the card. Take care,
