Comment  ::   Great stuff Rob. I envy you lifestyle.

By the way you convinced my brother to purchase the 24-105 IS lens. He will be eternally greatful as it produces fantastic results.

I will be in the market for the 100mm macro later in the year. Again your reviews have confirmed my decision to purchase.

Best of luck for 2007.

Comment  ::   Was watching "Worlds Most Extreme Homes" and saw your Winebago on steroids so looked you up with Google. Glad I did. Your photography is fabulous. I'm a nature lover and an art love and your photographs thrilled both sides of me. I've also decided that I've got to get to Australia to see your wonders of the world. Thanks for sharing your work

Comment  ::   Great site. Too bad that your obsession keeps you from doing something conceptually new and from going abroad. You are extremely driven by refining your expertise and that in itself is remarkable. It limits you from exploring foreign cultures and other continents, but this is clearly by choice.

Comment  ::   Life is so short.... Working in a job you like is great, but travelling and taking photos would not be a "job". There is so much world to see and life to experience. I too am a photographer, wanting to travel this great country the same way you have been/are. Could you please build me a 'Wothahellizat 3'????? Great website too....

Comment  ::   Dear Rob,

I just read your article about 'Faces in Nature' in photomagazine 'Silvershotz'. Amazing! Very original with beautiful photowork.

As a passionat amateur photographer I am very inspired by your photowork.It is a joy to look at your photo's. Its my great wish to travel the world, meet nice people and shoot some amazing photo's. But with a daytime job this is almost impossible.

Is there by any change in the future an exhibition of your work in the Netherlands? I wish you al the best and most of all enjoy the beautiful light.

Greetings,
Huub KeulersElsloo,

Comment  ::   Hi there Rob and Chris, been looking at the progress piccys of the truck every now and then. Guess the progress is taking longer than expected?

It's gonna be a pearlor though when it's finally done...

Got the mog on the market, if anybody's interested out there in the wide world of WORT's??

It can be seen on some of the construction diary's of late August and early November I noticed!

HOPE YOU HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND A GOOD PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.

Comment  ::   Hi Rob, My husband and I check your rebuild progress every week. We wish we were on the road already, so we can stop in at your place and give you a hand while learning from you in return. We must stay put for the next 24 months, so we can buy our mid size bus and fit it out. Then back on the road full time. We lived in a Leyland Tiger for 4 years while in Darwin, and only moved it three times. Too big for us, we were beginners. That was 10 years ago, and have craved the life style ever since. We still travelled, but stayed in cabins, not the same and not our own bed, and no social life.
Well keep up the good work, and see you on the track down the road in a little while.

Comment  ::   Just realized it zero dark zero in the A.M. here. Reading this Aussie's accomplishments and mental meanderings is nothing short of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer with a humongous chunk of the McGyver thrown in. A great boost to anyone with a soul rumbling ache for similar plans.

Comment  ::   Hiya Mr. Rob,
Been following your rebuild pretty religiously. Your shade tree mechanic-ing, seat-of-your-pants, sincere effort to share the bumps and bruises during this rebuild is one of the best resons this internet exists. Lordy! speaking of bumps, reading that Miss Chris was hurt and bleeding was a heart stopper. I know how such a thing can take the wind out of your sail when you are so wrapped up in a humongous project (mentally, emotionally, financially). Angels and prayers to her and you both. In the immortal words of Indiana Jones...Its not the years, its the mileage.

Comment  ::   Rob, I love your work, your ability to stick to it and see the job thru to the finish without loosing the plot and rushing the job and forever regreting that you did. I worked at the Army proving ground in Vic. when they were testing the ACCO and we had lots of problems with the power dividers for the rear drive.The design was changed a number of times before they became reliable.Best regards for a job very well done and love your photo's as well. Cheers Tim

Comment  ::   Thanks for your web. It is a dream for me. I have a motorhome (not 4x4, snif) and I like to go out of the roads to look for special sites. I am limited because I only have two wheels tractioning... I like very much your Wothahellizat 1 and 2.
And your photos.... really nice. Thank you for your free photos for wallpaper and thank you for your articles, it is a great pleasure for me to read it and help me to learn more english language.
When I Grow Up I want to be like you.

Comment  ::   Your site is an inspiration, I love bushwalking and I dabble in
photography. Until now I have left my DSLR behind on long walks
and only taken a compact camera because of the weight. I have just
changed my mind... the things I have seen deserve the best camera
I can afford and I will be taking it with me from now on !

Comment  ::   Hey Rob and Chris,
I am a new fan of you guys as of today when I discovered
your awesome vehicle when just doing some random web
browsing research for my next fabrication project. I loved
reading about your rain water collection system. I also
especially enjoyed the pics of your completed vehicle-
especially the one where it is backed up close to a beach. I
can only imagine the views you guys had of the Ocean at
night time. I look forward to following you guys here on the
web as you continue your build process and your next
adventures. I hope maybe someday my wife and I can start
exploring in our own off road RV. Good luck to you guys, my
prayers will be with you for safety and good fortune.

Thank you,
Jared Jones
