• The Great Escape



Crikey, that's a lot of days! But gees, hasn't it been great?

So far we've travelled roughly 70,000kms. We've visited 6 states & territories, working in all of them except Canberra

We've learned how to milk a goat, ride a 4 wheeler, install a diesel heater, build a website, round up sheep, pack eggs, and take photos of the milky way.

We've hiked up mountains, climbed giant trees, kayaked, snorkeled and become confident four wheel drivers.

We've met dolphins, cassowaries, stingrays, kangaroos, snakes and crocodiles. (Sometimes closer than we'd prefer)

We've had a car accident that wrote off our home, and we're now travelling in a different car & camper than we started with.

We've passed many birthdays and have a kid that began as a toddler who is now a confident, happy, social & knowledgeable kid (smarter even than his Mum & Dad - just ask him!)

We've camped in outback summers and freezing NSW winters. We've been to salt lakes, cliffs, sink holes, and pink lakes. And we've made it to the northern most & western most points of Australia.

And we've met so many fantastic, amazing, generous and adventurous people along the way.

We couldn't think of a better way to live. So if you're thinking about hitting the road too, then where the bloody hell are you? Get out here with us and see this awesome country too!

Don't you wish you'd bought a Caravan? NOPE, nopeity nope. Can't stress this one enough. We love our Cub Campers camper trailer, and love all the fantastic places it takes us that you can't access in a caravan

What about school? https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2093633450926273&id=1673605876262368
