Flashback to a 1985 Aussie camping adventure.

All our nine children have developed a love and respect for Australia as valid as that held by anyone else. From an early age Jill and I encouraged all of them to appreciate some of it's natural beauty. In mid-1985 when we only had three sons we locked up our house and departed on an adventurous camping trip which took us in a loop through the arid parts of South Australia, the Northern Territory then back to our home near Fremantle. I think we were away for a couple of months. One of the places we visited in the NT was known as the Devil's Marbles. These days its better known by the Aboriginal name of Karlu Karlu. It's where the above photo of Luke, Ken and Terry was taken. In those days the trio all had blond hair.
