pitstop.

[phone rings; of course we have a hands free setup] … hg speaking … hi, how are you going? … good mate, thanks … where are you now? … on the road, heading towards esperance … the caravan is going well? … yeah, pretty good, no complaints … listen, i suggest you get something checked…

on the edge of the world.

coming from south australia and driving towards western australia means crossing the nullarbor plain. even today that’s a bit daunting, it’s such a long road through the middle of nowhere. i’d say this stretch is about one third of the distance across our favourite continent. the first explorers found it very hard going and eyre’s…

the needle and murphy’s haystacks.

we all know australia is a big place. one look at any map will tell you that. europe could easily fit into australia and even wriggle around in its sleep without falling off the edges. and that is even though australia has shrunk quite a bit 18.000 years ago, when ocean levels rose and cut…

my port lincoln.

Dear Readers, This week was quite a relaxing one. Port Lincoln was nice but very windy and cold. On the way to Port Lincoln we passed Whyalla and it was very windy there as well. At the Info Centre they said ‘to go to the port were the fishing boats anchor because there may be…

my flinders ranges.

The Flinders Ranges is one of the best places to see a lot of nature and aboriginal history. Next we…

my mungo.

memory cove.

we love our little home on wheels, that’s for sure. ok, every now and then, we we look at the supertanker-sized twin-axled five-star luxury cruisers other travellers live in we do get a tiny bit jealous. they have bathrooms, massive kitchens, washing machines, wide screen tvs (probably more than one) and more storage space than…

stop over (updated).

as  mentioned last time instead of an amazing outback drive along the oodnadatta track the girls preferred a slightly less rustic detour – to adelaide. that said a quick stroll through the adelaide cbd on friday afternoon left us with the impression that there was a fair bit of eccentricity about the place – maybe…

tweaks.

after about a month and a half on the road and approximately a quarter of our way around the country this might just be a good time for a little stock take and analysis of our setup. we’ve done a few hundred kilometers on dirt, stayed off the grid for a couple of days and…
