NYE on the Hill

Happy belated New Year everybody! Our 2014 started on a high at NYE on the Hill, a 3-day camping and music festival on a farm in Victoria. Happy Camper Pizza was invited along to feed the friendly, music-loving crowd. It was the perfect excuse to hit the road again with the kids now that our other…

First ever Airstream Rally “Down Under”

Happy Camper

Our beautiful Vintage Airstream, Wallabee, is going to be off the road for some time. She has some significant issues with her subframe. That means the end of our full-time Australian road trip until we can find the money and someone with the expertise to fix her. (If there’s anyone in Melbourne who knows about…

Bittersweet homecoming

I haven’t posted anything for a couple of months because I’ve been feeling really disappointed that we quit our road trip around Australia so early. One of the main reasons was because Wallabee was sick – she’s having major chassis issues and at the time we didn’t have a clue what was wrong. Things were…
