A memorable sticky situation you’ve found yourself in.
2021 - Our son got a severe infection on the Gibb river road, after 14 days in the Broome hospital he had to be flown to Perth for surgery. Very grateful the surgery was a success and he got to keep his leg and is in good health.
Mexico 2020 - Brooke almost died from sepsis, she went into septic shock, all caused from the water getting into her bloodstream. We are incredibly grateful for all our health and lives, this also was a huge reason for us to travel indefinitely & to spend all our time together, life can be too short.
Your 3 must have caravan items
Compost toilet - no need for dump point, can go weeks free camping.
Tow rig capable to take you anywhere you need to go, like endless days on the beach
Plenty of water tanks for longer time off grid
And I have to add a 4th & 5th must
Dyson hand held vacuum & our beautiful Daisy Graze dinner ware.
Favourite easy yet delicious caravan meal.
Fresh Fish tacos crumbed with corn chips - using the fish we’ve caught that day.
What advice would you give to others travelling or contemplating fulltime travel in the future?
Just do it… There’s no perfect time to start, just go. You can always get supplies on the road or upgrade on the way. Don’t overthink it. The only regret you’ll have is not going, live and love your life, you only get one life, so enjoy it doing what makes you happy.
You can follow along with the adventures via their Instagram and Facebook pages or watch on YouTube.
