Well here we are back in Brisbane again, this time to pickup our Trailermate Jack which was promised to be ready by 27th. I even rang and checked. So we turned up for it, only to find it sitting against the wall in reception where I left it 3 weeks ago. We got a lame excuse about being busy and the receptionist just said “well I didn't say what time it would be ready”. So we had to come back in a couple of hours to pick it up. I really despair of crap customer service, especially in a lot of the caravan repairs and parts industry. Our next task was an appointment with Dr Paul Belt, my other skin and Plastic Surgeon on the Thursday morning. He just wanted to check out his last load of slice and dice from my face. He was happy with everything, so off we went back to Lawnton for the night. There was another couple at Lawnton who had stayed for some while waiting on delivery of their new van. So they unpacked all the goods from old van into a trailer so as to go and pick up the new van, only to discover that Franklin had put the tow hitch on the BOTTOM of the A frame instead off the top. (Who woulda thunk it??!!). So he had go back again the next day to get it fixed. Major welding job. For his sake, I hope they did it properly.
Yippee! Tomorrow we start heading South.
