Taking the new wheels for a spin

So we bought a ute. No, not a stupid Jeep, a ute. It's the biggest car in the world, well it feels like that after trading in my Suzuki Swift. I am still a wee bit tentative parking the thing - I feel like I need a guy in a reflective vest behind me waving me into a space and redirecting carpark traffic.

The good news is Sybil is stoked! When we drove it into the carport she new it was designed for her to ride in and and be a total menace from. It must be in Kelpie DNA, the ute thing? We took her for a burn out to Dayboro for a swim and run in the mud - let's just say she was as happy as a pig in ....

On Saturday we left the ute hound at home and took the new über car to Noosa and Mooloolaba. It was such a beautiful day at the beach. We live in an amazing part of the world and the sun and saltwater were much needed after the stint of shithouse weather we've had.

On the way back to Brisbane we took a detour through the pine forest - mainly just to get mud all over the wheel arches and to test out the suspension - we let our inner bogan loose - and the inner bogan was happy.

1. Me à la bogan with said menace
2. Solar flare in the pine forest
3. All lined up in a row
4. Looks very Black Forest, but was actually very un Black Forest.
