    Oooops. I trust things got better for everybody after that.

    My brother did that one time with Froot Loops combined with some rater rhythmic undulations in the road and a seat behind the rear axle in a Ford wagon. Positively Technicolor in the rear of that wagon....

    Sorry to hear that.

    By the way, we never left home (driveway) without 2 litre ice cream buckets!

    Three of them.

    When one started there was no stopping of the other 2.

    Live and learn.

    PS: Great shot by the way - almost worth it?

    I have had kids complain of feeling sick in the back of a D, though thankfully held it in. The problem is if they are small and can't see over the window sills then it is a bit like being in a boat - sea sick. Get her a big cushion to sit on. I agree about the photos, looks like you went to art school.

    Some pearler stories there
    Parents are to blame though, in an effort to make sure she was well feed for the trip we over did it! Egg, cheese, butter and quinoa followed by a coconut yogurt = to rich! She actually sleep without a peep, before and after the event.
    Arrived safe at dads (grand dad) in Mittagong, you can see why I'm a tragic...


    SM for sale soon...

    Barn find
    Off to Sydney tomorrow, but... My situation has changed, flying back to Melbourne for a days work, so wife and bub will continue on to Dorrigo in DS without me! When I'll meet them in Brisbane!
    Did an engine and gearbox change to keep the gods happy.

    Gearbox plug, engine doesn't have a magnet.

    Identified with the issue very strongly. I got used to watching my grenouile's face in the rear view mirror, failure to do so inviting the reception of a decorative scarf of projectile spew.

    One day I cast a cautionary glance in the mirror and instead of the normal pre-spew introverted look I saw this red-faced concentration look. We executed an immediate nature strip emergency stop, raced to open the back door to find bubs happily filling his nappies with spaghetti sauce (looked like). It just went on and on and on, overflowing from the waist like it was connected to a mains sewer outlet. I still have no idea how a 20Kg kid can exude 40 Kg of s#!t. The physics just does not hang together.

    I never got carsick and my brother was a chronic car sick kid and our sister, younger than him, has never suffered car sickness. Of course we never gave him a hard time about it Just for a stir, if all had been going well on a long trip, one of us would ask if he was OK, then the other would check - regularly. Mum would be in the front telling us to shut up. Dad would be laughing and preparing for the rapid stop.

    My brother also suffers sea sickness and is not the world's greatest air traveller.

    Not always. For me it was mostly simple anxiety about just how long it would take from when we left to when my mother started tearing strips off my father.

    Thanks Tony, I never went to art school, more the school of hard knocks, but both my parents did!
    A few more from the Continental institution.

    Test drove a DS5... Well the boss did...

    Then she found an amazing restored Pallas! We all have dreams!

    The wife just dropped me off at the airport

    They are shooting for Dorrigo today, I'll meet them in Brisbane on Tuesday...
    I guess this must be one of the few times a mum and bub will do a road trip like this in a DS!
    First time ever I got full comprehensive insurance and complete road side assist on the DS just last week, hope she doesn't need it...

    Living the dream

    @ Tony,
    Yes my dad purchased the car from Peter McLeod, he imported it from the UK.
    LHD, 5-speed manual, I've been told it has the bigger motor but I will want to see the papers to be sure.
    I drove it from Canberra to Sydney 3yrs ago.
    It has been resprayed at some stage and is in complete original condition inside.

    Car ran faultlessly from Sydney to Dorrigo to Caloundra.
