We are still living our Dream.
Our first DEAD body in 692 days on the road.apart from a few small birds.
On Sunday 12th May 2013 at 8:51am, 29.3km North of Charleville,
I did strike and kill an emu.
It was more the emu commited suicide by running along beside our rig,
he decided to run into us instead of heading into the bush. Silly prick.
He ran into Marg's door and destroyed our left hand towing mirror.
End result was one dead emu, one completely destroyed towing mirror
and a bit of minor damage to Marg's door.
I was a bit disappointed that Marg closed her eyes and didn't grab the camera.
