Our journey finally begins and we are finished all of our modifications to the "van", still no name.....(not yet...still working on it, no pressure) We had a great time staying at Bill and Lorrene's, they are the best!!
Unfortunatly we got a really slow start to our first day and didn't finally hit the road until 3pm!!! ( got last minute things from a new favourite shops, SUPER CHEAP AUTO and BUNNINGS!!!!) I know I know that is far to late to start traveling and we thought about staying one more night at the relatives, but stubborn as we are, (heh heh no comment Corcorans!) we decided to press on. We made it over Mt. Nebo and to Summerset Dam and our first camping site with no problems at all! Camping was supposed to cost us 20 dollars per night, but the place was deserted and we arrived late, so if someone was collecting money we never saw them and that was fine with us :) ( we were a bit freaked out though as it was deserted and it was our first night in the Aussie wilderness)
It gets dark here early ( 5:30 as it is technically winter, weird ) and we ended up getting to sleep around 9. Up at 8 and on the road again, heading to the Australia Zoo and the second night somewhere. Still didn't plan in advance and flying by the seat of our pants !! We love and hate it! (but getting used to it, slowly)
Love you all,
Keir and Kylie
