Wings of time ...
We hadn't been able to fit our jerry cans into/onto Elmer for the trip but we made sure that both his tanks were filled to capacity (and topped up again before heading "home").
As an aside, Nick received a discount when paying for the fuel. The friendly cashier applied a "senior discount"! Understandably, I was hugely amused when reading the receipt - though less entertained when I was offered an application form for concession stamps at the Post Office!
Many years ago, somewhere in the Northern Territory, Erin had her photo taken beside a road train. Back then she was not much higher than one of the wheels. When she spotted this "proper" road train, we saw a compare/contrast photo opportunity for the family albums!
