G'day all, Jim here,
As a 10 pound tourist who landed 50 years ago for a 2 year visit and somehow seemed to stay I've been to a lot of places mentioned in friday 5, but now age has caught up and crawling around on hands and knees in the dirt setting up my caravan has lost it's appeal, so my travels are now experienced through your weekly news sheet. Keep up the good work, thanks.
Jo, just read your latest (7th June) and as usual full of interesting and useful info.
At 85, I do not do outback any more, but surely like to keep in touch with what is happening in our wonderful outback. I like to believe that I can still hack it, but my travelling mates, of similar age, tell me I am nuts ! (wife confirms they are right).
Started using your maps somewhere in the mid nineties, and was always impressed with the good info in them. Later, added your wonderful Friday Five when I discovered the internet. What has happened to our German friend?. Can’t think of his name, but felt he knew a lot more about travelling Oz than a lot of we locals. Was he from sunny Dortmund ?
Thank you for all your work, always look forward to the Friday email. B
Just to say thanks to you guys for diligently producing the Friday 5 to keep us up to speed with things Australian. What a great line of communication for those of us who love travelling the great outback, as there is always useful and current updates on what we need to know. Keep up the good work. Richard & Liz
Hi Friday Five Team,
Just a quick note to say thanks for your weekly news. I eagerly look forward to it each week & enjoy reading all the various contributions. Well done team for your mammoth effort every week.
Sincere thanks from an interested traveller
Dear Jo, Graeme and Team
I have been receiving and enjoying your ‘Friday Five’ newsletter for many years, and I have appreciated every one of them. I thought I should jot you a very quick line to say thanks you for your wonderful efforts.
The preparation of this document every week must take much time. Every edition is very professional, well written, interesting and great to read. Everybody concerned should take a huge bow!!!
I am afraid old age and a few health gremlins have curtailed our caravan & 4WD bush travels a bit, but I still enjoy reading my Friday emails. We sit back now and watch our grandsons do all of the things we loved to do!
Again, our sincere thanks. You have brought a lot of pleasure to a lot of people.
Cheers, and keep on camping!
Heather and Ron
