The driving part of our adventure came to an end today when we returned our faithful 'troopy' to the guys at We were sad to say goodbye to the trusty vehicle, pleased to get it back to them without any last minute accidents or problems, pleased to share some of our adventure with the guys and sorry to say good bye to Taia and the team that have supported us so well.

To summarise the trip in a few numbers.

  • we drove 28,000km (17,500 miles)

  • consumed 4143 liters of fuel (1097 US gals) at cost of A$7100

  • average fuel consumption of 14.8 L/100km or 16 M/USg
