On The Road
Two Years!!!! It’s taken 2 years to finish and perfect SimpleWHS (our application for managing work health & safety) to the stage where we are willing to open it for subscriptions.We’ve had a fantastic time working for Martyn at Shearpower Contracting in that time and the few preceding years.

Solitary Island in the distance Life in a caravan is not everyone’s idea of living the dream.If you’d asked us about our ultimate goal in life 3 years ago, we’d probably have painted a picture of a plot of land, a nicely furnished box to sit on it and plenty of familiar people and places… Read More »A taste of the road again.

The big kidney stone is still not passing and the pain keeps coming… Read More »Back to Alice then on to Ayres Rock!
We felt a bit in the way in the flurry of activity to get everything ready. Gerry and Corrine have conducted these tours together for many years and have a very well tried and tested method and so we’re trying to help and get a grasp on the way everything works while keeping out of… Read More »Preparing for the Sandrifter Safaris
