Happy New Year to all our readers, we hope 2015 brings you health, happiness and travel. New Years Day, and time for me and Andy to break camp and start our journey back to Perth. Andy, Karen and Naomi are staying another night and will do their journey in one day, I was happy for us to take a nice and easy trip home so we allowed ourselves a couple of days and a rough idea of what route we wanted to take. So as soon as we were out of bed we started to pack up, we have been here for a while so packing up takes slightly longer than an overnighter. We popped around to Andy and Karen's and ate jaffles for breakfast, then got back to it. We were ready for the off ... read more

Boxing Day 26thDecember 2014 (Chicken Tracks) Boxing Day arrived and we awoke to a beautiful morning, if only a little on the windy side. Our plans for the day were to pack some lunch and head out to Israelites Bay, it is a 4 wheel drive track taking us further into the Cape Arid National Park, more remote and so far across Western Australia that it sits just below and beyond Balladonia on the Nullarbor. We left camp at about 10.00am with Andy, Karen and Naomi in their 100 Series and Caroline and I in ours, even though using two vehicles was not the most economical way of travelling we figured if one vehicle became bogged then the other vehicle could tow it out if required. The first 30 k’s were just gravel roads, to the ... read more

24TH & 25THDecember 2014 Caroline was out of bed at 6.30am again, by now I was wondering who this strange and organised woman is in the kitchen and wondered what she had done with my real wife! Yesterday seemed so far away, I really cannot remember what time I got up, nor can I be really be bothered to try to trawl my memory for such meaningless information as we are on holiday. I know our morning started with a cup of tea then Caroline wandered around to our neighbours Andy, Karen and Naomi on camp site 5 to see what was happening, how they slept and what was the plans if any, then came back and said that we should do breakfast for everyone. Fortunately I had taken enough bacon from the freezer the night ... read more

Do Only Bears Eat Honey? 22nd & 23rd December The morning dawned, the birds were singing in abundance, the light was streaming through the window along with the cool breeze, the sun was up. I was awake early again, it seems that my body clock has not altered yet, it will, but of course it will make it harder to get back into work routine once our holiday is over. I finally slid out of bed at 6.30 to put the kettle on, a hand signal from Andy indicated that he too wanted a morning cup of tea. It looked like there was no way he would move from the bed too early this morning, but that was ok, I wanted him to do as little as possible and rest up. He still needs to rest, ... read more
