That’s right, we have departed! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Final packing and preparations took a little longer than we expected, but today we left the big smoke for fresh country air. 6 months of it!
Even the moon was smiling down on us, in a perfectly shaped smiley (but it disappeared below the horizon before I could photograph 🙁 ) We didn’t get away till later in the arvo, so are spending the night on the outskirts of Gympie.
Preps for the motorhome took longer than expected, with some items such as the 200W solar panel not arriving till mid last week. Our home for the next 6 months also now sports a Thule bike rack on the back, as well as a 1000W pure sine wave inverter. But I’ll leave these details for another time…
Here we are, preparing to embark….
This next one cracked Dad and I up when I was going through checking all the cupboards. Check out the size of this container! Its barely any larger than my thumb – what a feast!!! Even Nicole managed to join in the laugh, despite being the culprit…
We were all excited to be leaving, but we express that in different ways. Daniels was to decide to get the remaining years school work out of the way so he could forget about it! Yep, just as we were preparing to depart on holidays, he pulled out his maths books and spent the first couple of hours driving doing maths questions!! lol, he got 7 pages done too – a fair proportion of it!!
We are heading north, for a visit to the Great Barrier Reef. Not sure where exactly yet – now that the hectic planning and packing is over we’ll have more time to determine such minor details!
Time to hit the sack as I’m tired out from all the preparations, but it’s great to finally be on the road! 🙂
