Cumberland River campsite, Great Ocean Road
View from Castle Rock lookout,, June 10th 2012
It's hard to believe that in two weeks time we will have spent our first night on the road. Time is whizzing by very quickly until we leave. Hopefully our 9 weeks on the road will go much slower...
The trailer brakes got a test drive during last weekend's camping trip to Cumberland River on the Great Ocean Road. But the Prado missed out on getting properly muddy because the 4WD tracks in the Otways were closed :-( Mulled wine and lattes went down very well in the cold conditions. Uggs passed the winter camping test and didn't let a drop of water/mud in and kept my feet sooo toasty! And the superduper mattress in the camper trailer will prove to be one of the best buys ever. I can't see myself jumping out of bed to take in the amazing sunrises when the bed is just so comfortable.
But back to the preparations:
Humungous fishing rod for catching humungous fish- check. Rubber mats - check. Seat covers - check. iTunes playlists compiled - check. Piles of things all over the house - check.
