There and back again…RoPro’s Tale

Posted: January 3, 2013 in Uncategorized

Lots has happened since our last post.  The story is probably told better in pictures but to give you some background…  RoPro made the journey to Australia.  We teamed with the Queensland University of Technology to retrofit a John Deere Gator.   Here are some of the highlights in no particular order.

Trip of a life time.  Needless to say we are looking for more work that requires travel.  Pass it on.
