Our practice trip with the camper to Streaky Bay and Coffin Bay started off with a few hitches like not being able to get the fridge hooked up. If it weren't for my Dad, we would have had to eat take-aways the whole time. Also a couple of water leakages early in the trip caused it's fair share of misery.

Camping overnight on the beach in Streaky was a tad blustery to say the least. We had to stuff all 4 seat cushions between the canvas and the stays to stop the noise of the flapping. It persisted all night.

Coming back through Pt Augusta it was windy again. It was wierd to see the metal roadside posts vibrating in the stiff breeze which was exagerated as we drove by.

The coastal route was breath taking.

Great Report So Far
I also was listening to Macca this mornig when you were on. Line was very clear, and your descriptions of your travels made me look you up on the web. The reports have been very interesting so far, and are getting better. I'm up to Poland so far - my link speed is fairly slow, especially with the pics. It's been a 2 hour trek for me. I and my wife have both been to Poland a few years ago, went to the salt mines and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Krakow. Hoping to return.
Keep up the posts, hopefully you won't have a repeat of Turkey tummy while in Delhi!! Stick to the bananas....

Cheers for now,

How exciting, we home educate our children, your trip will be very informative for them, how much items cost, what food do they grow and eat, places they live, their type of transport etc, of course we are very interested to. Have a safe trip, we shall keep you all in our prayers. We will be looking on the travelpod web site daily to keep us up to date on your trip. God Bless, The Ricketts Family.
