  1. Hi Everyone!

    Lovely to see all the photos and read your news. I thought I was “following” you but I mustn’t have done it properly! All fixed now.

    We miss you all lots but it’s great to know what a wonderful time you are having.

    Love always,


  2. Thanks Tom.

    I enjoy your stats. They give you a good picture of what you can achieve and what it costs. Valuable tools for planning the next trip. I take it you are reasonably relaxed. The booze budget is relatively low, indicating not too much stress. Perhaps one of my dear old Dad’s sayings applies; “You kids will drive me to drink, except I can’t afford it.” The relaxed atmosphere of camping grounds is generally to be enjoyed. However, Darwin is the only place where we have had food stolen. Though that was in the early days of retirement, when we were camping in a tent, out of the car boot, and using the camp kitchen fridge. Still, I recommend extra caution in those northern camps. Safe and happy travelling.

    Regards, Bill Fitzpatrick
