The first trip from Devonport to St Helens
At Caravank Park
The main purpose of this trip was to test new vehicle on the road, both sealed and unsealed. We visited St Helens, Bay of Fires and returned via Gladston. Spirit of Tasmania took us back home on 21/10/01 

A couple of remaining problems were rectified as soon as we returned to Islander (together with score of our additional last minute wishes). We are happy with overall result and we feel that project as a whole was complete succes. 

Thank you, Islanders!
