Take Us Along Winner

Kent Corbin

This week's Take Us Along winner is Kent Corbin of Flemingsburg, Ky. He took Kentucky Auto & RV along on a trip to Kangaroo Island in South Australia and is shown at the island's sign with a copy of the magazine.

Kangaroo Island is also called Karta (Island of the Dead). It is Australia's third largest island. It was at one time occupied by the Aborigines, who named it Karta, but they left when the land separated from the mainland and formed the island. Whalers lived there in the early part of the 19th century. The first Europeans settled there in 1836 and gave it the name it is known by today. The island's economy relies on agriculture, rock lobsters and tourists. It features a number of nature reserves, including Finders Chase National Park. The island is only 93 miles long and about 35 miles wide. Thanks for taking us along!
