Homeward Bound….. and maybe our last real camp.

Well our outback adventure has almost come to a close, Around 18000kms, two stuffed tyres, one broken windscreen and with 1200 kay’s till we reach home. We are really savouring our camp fire camping now as places to do this are running out fast. It’s been a great tour with plenty of fantastic experiences and places visited along the way. Heading for the coast now to see some blue ocean and waves just to top the whole deal off.

      Merv’s just getting nervous – he’s been king of the wheatbelt since you’ve been away and he’s worried you’re going to knock him off his perch.

      Thanks Mark, I can highly recommend a trip like our’s, But don’t leave it to long as I fear it may get harder to do in the not to distant future.
      Thanks for all your comments along the way as well.

      I got over it pretty quick , i’m now resting on my laurels…. for now. 🙂

      Yeah, things are going to have to turnaround pretty quickly to make it any sort of an event this year.

        It’s got a habit of doing that though hasn’t it, Raining a week or so before the big event.

    One year, exactly one week before the race it was bone dry and my canoe partner wanted to pull out.

    I convinced him to stay in, it rained cats and dogs for a week and they had one of teh highest races of all time!

    So, it can happen…but it is not looking good for this year eh!

    Nothing beats a campfire in the middle of nowhere, I think it will be hard coming back to the real world. Have enjoyed all your posts.
