On the road

We’re one week into a 2000 kilometre road trip from Melbourne to the Red Centre and a laissez-faire attitude has already kicked in – out of necessity.

So far we’ve made it just 9 hours drive from home.

From a snapped bracket on our hitch on day one, to losing all our marker lights on day three. Followed by a slowly deflating tyre, a broken pantry, flying cupboards, leaking grey water and today a broken toilet. We seem to have some kind of new drama every day.

We’re now in Broken Hill (yes the irony of it is not lost on me).

Fingers crossed we can get this lemon Wallabee back on the road soon.

  1. From lyn and Alan in mildura hope you have gotten everything fixed and are on the road again, we were wondering how your trip was going

  2. Bugger! Traveling light is good practise on outback dirt roads. Try to stick to the bitumen, Sonn. With out shocks, vans can shake to pieces on just springs, guess you know that now. What a great experience and adventure!
    We can’t wait to do it again.
    Love Tony & Jacque

  3. So good to hear from you – your stories made me laugh for the day – keep posting and good luck with that broken toilet 😉

  4. Wallabee still looks very impressive despite some warming up issues, remember the best stories come from adventures that don’t run so smoothly. Enjoy and we will catch you somewhere soon!

  5. Hi all! WOW – so exciting to see you’re ‘on the road’. Look forward to hearing all the updates! Lotsalove xxx
