Staying Awhile

Meet TBone

  • by

Meet “T-bone” Shannon’s new pet, although judging by the name you wouldn’t think it’ll be a long term relationship. The feisty steer was put into a hastily erected yard near the camp where he’s alone, just him and his belligerent attitude. After penning up T-Bone, Shannon came over to the camp to announce that, “If… Read More »Meet TBone

Port Parham:

  • by

Here we are at Port Parham – 70km North of Adelaide. We wrote about this spot last time we were in Adelaide, (remember Mr Condom). This time there were only 5 other campers. We parked the van near the toilets and hooked up to water. This was a treat as it’s been a while since we’ve… Read More »Port Parham:

Everything we do at Sandrifter is wrong!

This post about our departure from Sandrifter has caused offence to the Sandrifter owners. Since we have no wish to offend anyone on this blog we have removed this post.

No contact with the world!

  • by

Here we are again after nearly 3 weeks without contact with the outside world. Trephina Gorge has no phone reception and even the satelite phone only works occasionally. How quickly things can change our ideas of where we’re going in life. Our broad plan was to work for Sandrifter Safaris for 3 weeks, head on… Read More »No contact with the world!

Halls Gap

Halls Gap in the Grampians, is the Wimmera version of Montville. It’s greener and several degrees cooler than Horsham due to the trees and the higher altitude. It has a couple of caravan parks and holiday homes, as well as the usual tourist shops. The best part is that it’s only an hours drive from Horsham. It… Read More »Halls Gap

Work, work, work

  • by

For the last 2 days we have been catching up with work. Chris is also developing a program to show David (the farmer) because with all the technology on the farm, David still keeps his book work on paper and blackboards. He even said he doesn’t know what he would do if someone rubbed off… Read More »Work, work, work

Wow what a day!

  • by

We packed up the van this morning still using the water and power with last minute clothes washing, vacuuming and cleaning the shower before we headed off to David’s farm to have the van weighed.   We weighed both the van and the caravan separately as well as together and YAH!!!! UNDER WEIGHT! I can… Read More »Wow what a day!

Catching up

  • by

We are staying in the council caravan park on the river in Horsham, something we do very rarely. The last caravan park we stayed at was Charleville back in Oct.  The benefits of having water on tap and electricity is being able to wash EVERYTHING and have the air conditioner on, at 38 deg and… Read More »Catching up
