Greetings from Ingham 🤩
We almost didn’t leave Yungaburra yesterday morning 😬😬
After packing up we started lifting the van to get it hitched onto the truck.  It didn’t go up very far……
The new 12 volt motor we had just installed was making the same weird clicking noises as the old one, so were just a little bit concerned..
And then a very loud bang!! The van fell a bit on the right side as obviously something drastic happened with that landing leg.
Luckily the left leg held so we quickly got the truck jack and blocks of timber to support the right side.
We really thought we were well and truly grounded yet again but realised the left leg still went up and down, so by juggling that and raising the jack to keep the van even, we could still hitch up.
We couldn’t get it quite high enough but dropped the air out of the back suspension on the truck and woohoo it just squeezed in.
Of course when we got here to Ingham we had to reverse that procedure so now we have lots of bits and pieces coming from Melbourne.
We think the left leg is ok but decided not to mess around and just get both legs with all the bells and whistles attached.

We did see the Male Riflebird again in the Wongabel forest before we left Yungaburra and Anthony got a ok photos but he was very high in the trees.
My Sister Denise and her hubby Mark were with us at the time and she is a whiz bang at spotting tree kangaroos so we also got some nice pics there.
It was a bit sad to leave that area as we get quite settled in Yungaburra but who knows….. maybe next year we will head up that way again.

So there aren’t many photos and sorry, no video this time but hopefully we have a productive week here.

Bye for now Steph and Anthony.

Dragon/Damselflies have been in very short supply, hopefully Tyto will be teaming with them.

Here is an Orange Threadtail Damselfly
