MORGAN SAFARI Live Tracking

Hi, the MORGANSAFARI ‘Find-me-Spot’ tracker is now up and running.  You can get to our tracking page here  LIVE TRACKING and the link directly to the ‘Find-Me-Spot’ page is here MORGAN SAFARI – Find me SPOT tracker – Live

We tested the tracker on Monday morning and it confirmed that we were on the balcony at MORGANSAFARI HQ, 8 Water Street, Birchgrove!

The Spot tracker will serve two functions. Firstly it will enable you to follow our progress live on the internet with up to date GPS position. The tracker also enables us to contact you with the following messages;

OK : We are ok, having a great time and our position is xxxxxxx

We are not OK : Things not so great, so standby just in case

SOS: Holy shit – things just got really bad – it’s time to send in the A-Team! Well an automatic message is sent to family, local and international rescue service.

Hopefully the last function doesn’t get used.

Another Weekend in the garage!

It’s Australia day weekend and while the whole of Australia has been celebrating all things Aussie, Sophie and I have been in the underground garage at No. 8 Water Street, again. I have spent most of my free time over the last two months down here getting the car ready for our adventure. I shouldn’t complain as all this work is going to to end up with us having the most amazing adventure. At least we are getting things done and I must admit I do get a great sense of achievement when a new piece is added to Kylie.

It’s raining outside and it’s certainly not a weekend for the beach. It’s the first time I haven’t minded being in the garage for the weekend. I am looking forward to going away next weekend and trying out all the new bits we have added to the car.

Today’s work is roof lights and the super water filter. I have become a bit of a 12v electrical wizard over the last few weeks. Let’s hope that the system stays functioning and that I don’t end up with a smouldering pile of ash where the electrics have shorted and burned themselves to bits. The first pair of lights go on fairly quickly and they work first time. Big smiles all round.
