I’m not sure if the driving took it out of me, or if I’m starting to catch the cold that Justine has, but it ended up being a very early night for me, so I’m up and outside before anyone else.Continue reading “Day 3 – Mallacoota”
A pretty good night’s sleep given it’s our first night on the road, often I find night one a bit of an adjustment. Hearing the ocean overnight was so pleasant.Continue reading “Day 2 – Gillard’s Beach to Mallacoota”
A quick week away to Melbourne. Given we’re heading that way we electing to take the coast road and that will in some way complete the coastal lap that started 5 years ago.Continue reading “Day 1 – Home to Gillard’s Beach”
Well what a blast that was. I don’t use the word “Epic” much, but I think this trip qualifies.
A touch under 6,100 K’m in 19 days.Continue reading “Simpson Post Trip Summary”
Early morning start, I message Justine to see if she can book something. Doing on a computer will be easier than on the phones and she can look up stuff while we’re drivingContinue reading “Day 18 & 19 – White Cliffs to Home via Orange”
Well the tyre seems to have held. The general consensus is to have the better tyre on the front and sus one on the back. Thankfully I’ve got two jacks so I swap the two tyres around.
As I’ve arranged to get the tyre repaired at 9am, I feel compelled to go. I’d be annoyed if I was a no-show. I would mind getting a 2nd opinion on the repair job, not that I’ve got tons of confidence in their opinion either.Continue reading “Day 17 – Tibooburra to White Cliffs”
Another great night by the creek and some Turtle come to say hello as we packup.
The lockable canopy on George’s ute won’t unlock with the remote, and he’s not sure where the key is. After some faffing about he’s able to get the rear tray down and open it from the inside.Continue reading “Day 16 – Innamincka to Tibooburra”
Up around 6:30, not long after some mongrel in the next van up thinks it’s fine to start his generator. The missus must have wanted her expresso…. Selfish bastards….
Anyway, It’s a beautiful morning and the creek looks wonderful. We see another bunch of turtles come up, at least four. They must be used to being fed as they seem to close to bank where we are.Continue reading “Day 15 – Dig Tree Loop”
The wind continued all night, but it was still pretty comfortable and not too cold in the swag. I think we all had a better night’s sleep than in Birdsville.Continue reading “Day 14 – Arrabury Waterhole to Innamincka”
Not the best night’s sleep, in some respect the swag is more comfortable, and slightly warmer. But still a good choice. Anyway I’m up early and get some more writing done.Continue reading “Day 13 – Birdsville to Arrabury Waterhole”
