Tuesday 9th January – Coast, More Coast, Then The Jackpot

We didn’t muck around in the morning, but we didn’t rush either. With every day that passes we are getting into more of a rhythm. Our camping mate was long gone very early so we didn’t see any of him. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any more of Caroline or Dora either. I drove us out…

Monday 8th January – Really, Really Tall Trees

We didn’t hang around camp too long in the morning on account of the lack of views etc. Mr. Fuzzball was still hanging around as we were eating breakfast, the little shit. We both had semi-showers since we were feeling the grime, but we were soon on the road heading back into Pemberton. Before we…

Sunday 7th January – A Fail and a Wobble

Early morning wake up as usual thanks to the bright yellow of the tent amplifying the sun’s rays. Thankfully I didn’t feel too seedy from all the beer and Sheldan seemed to have come out alright as well. I suggested he make breakfast while I did some writing and he produced some bacon and egg…

Saturday 6th January – The Longest Jetty

We both had a rough-ish night even though the wind had died down, expected since it was our first night in new digs. I was up at 7:30am to a bright sun and a light breeze. Sheldan showed no sign of rising so I went off for a run to get myself nice and warm…

Friday 5th January – Tent Camping Like a Bitch

There’s a reason I don’t make plans. This blog was supposed to be about the start of a journey from the west coast of Australia to the east in a bright yellow car. Instead, it’s about a small road trip around the south west corner of Perth in a car with about as much character…

The Cost of Van Life

I’ve been nomadic for over a year, since 8th September 2016. In that time, I managed to spend nine solid months travelling in the Astro, ten months if you include my initial border run to Canada, which was really a test trip. The other time was spent faffing around in Germany then having some quality…

Tuesday 3rd October – Home.

I woke up just as early as Mum, around 7am and I was ready to get up and clear the cold symptoms from my body with a hot shower. I had an extended session under the scalding water and felt much better for it. Mum was off for her walk and so I joined her….

Monday 2nd October – Mummy!

5:30am we got up and I had a quick shower before we packed it up and went down to the lobby. While Dad checked out I gave my ticket to the concierge and they gave me Scottie and my bags. We managed to fit all that into the back of the bus as well as…

Sunday 1st October – Race Day

We were up at 8am again since we’d both had enough sleep and I was feeling less than ordinary and Dad wasn’t much better. I searched through my belongings for some suitable drugs and when I couldn’t find any, Dad provided since he never travels without half a pharmacy of cold and flu medicine. I…

Saturday 30th September – F1 for my Birthday

Dad was the first to get up at 8am and I followed soon after. After a shower, he surprised me with a hug for my birthday, something that had pretty much slipped my mind. I was excited to see F1 cars for the first time in nearly a year as my present. We caught the…
