Burnt Vehicles

A week has gone by and the latest news on the gearbox is that they are waiting on parts to be sent from China. (There are none available in Australia) So it will be at least 5 days before they arrive here. We have caught up with some family and friends. Celebrated Bob’s birthday with him and settled some business matters. Meanwhile I will show you some photos of one of the vehicles that have been torched since we arrived in Port Hedland. Apparently there have been 4 vehicles torched at the business where our bus is presently located. The last one occurred last Friday night and was about 10 metres from the bus.
These photos are of a Kenworth that was burnt 2 days before we left, it happened about 11 o’clock at night and we were 20 metres away asleep in the bus. There have been at least 32 vehicles torched up there in the past 3 months. We are not sure when we will be going back up but we are hoping it will be soon.
Bye for now Jan

Oh, Jan - the first thing I saw was the photos and I thought "Oh, no!" - so happy your bus is okay! Hope you get back soon!
