Ernie joins the family

Well after a little to'ing and fro'ing Ernie has joined the Ross family on the 18th of this month.  We picked him up from the salubrious back streets of Queanbeyan on a chilly Sunday morning at 7:30 !!!.  The truck driver Peter was really great and chatty given the hour.

We hit a few snags with the OzHitch connection on Charlie requiring a rather larger socket which meant we had to wait for Peter's mate over the road to open up so that we could "share" his spanner set ... of course it wasn't the size of normal trailer bolts ... came in at 1 5/16th of an inch ... so off to Supercheap or the like to see if I can find one so that we can move it around.....

But nonetheless we got Ernie home, Charlie did pretty well and the trailer breaks worked perfectly once adjusted.

So now its off the enjoy the fun filled process of inspection (yes crazy laws in ACT for all vehicles new or used) and registration.  Just love the process....
