Well, here we are, a full week into our BIG trip. Woohoo! Thought it was about time we penned something for you all, so bear with me. As you will have seen from our photo galleries, our six-week practice trip on Yorkes was an amazing adventure, discovering places we’d never been before, so close to home. Some days we travelled less than 10km between camps – there was just so much to see. Amazing beaches, historic towns and country retreats. All with a new amazing vista, when working at my desk (example above, here in Hallett). We did a lot of beach/bush camping, and in doing so, began to realise we had house battery issues. Battery was charging during the day, but fully discharging overnight. However, on returning to the ‘smoke’, this was the only fix Shebus needed, and Bruce at Manta Automotive Services conveniently fit her in! We were ready to hit the road again within 24 hours of arriving. It was surreal to be spending time in a house, with doors and large open spaces. Our time in Adelaide was pretty full on, with theatre commitments, the launch of a community cookbook, catching up with friends and family, our town and country farewell gatherings, and my dad’s 89th birthday to celebrate. It was great to have the opportunity to see people we hadn’t seen in a while, but we were VERY ready to get back on the road. Now on our BIG trip north, we are taking our time detouring to Broken Hill for the Mundi Mundi Bash – a three-day music festival. We’ve skimmed the Barossa Valley, travelled up through the Clare Valley and are now out the other side, very close to crossing Goyder’s line, in the barren but beautiful mid north! (Check out our photo galleries.) We’ve a few stops to go (and the longest drive of our travels so far) before we reach Broken Hill, and there starts another adventure!
PS: And yes, Jay and me are still talking!!!
