Eggbert was superceded by Bertie, the Billabong Caravan, and is the new bigger and better version! Geoff and Varena are still on their big trip - into their eighth year! Heading from Darwin to: Bungle Bungles, Tanami Desert, Alice Springs, Dalhousie Springs, Woomera, Lake Eyre, Nullarbor, Western Australia, Eyre Peninsular, Melbourne, Canberra, Blue Mountains, Bourke, Cameron Corner, Toowoomba, Tully, Birdsville - who knows what adventures they will have, or how long they will be on the road?

22nd November 2016
to say that Greg is fading away.He has periods of lucidity,
especially when new people arrive to see him, but in the main he is
dozing, & everyone is trying to make him comfortable.
the family apart from Kathy are now here in Canberra; the house at
Farrer is full. I manage the food for everyone in the evening. Very
sad time at the moment.
There were lots of arrivals throughout the day. Keeping Dad comfortable is the main thing, so not having us all in to see him at once is important; the noise of all the O'Regans in the same room can be rather deafening.
