Nothing’s Easy!

Off we drove from Pittsworth feeling confident that we’d at least experienced our first show even if we didn’t think any sales would eventuate. Pittsworth led us to a decision to stick to the larger agricultural shows and field days rather than the smaller shows where side show alley is the main attraction. Also the […]

Goodbye Koramba

At Koramba Farm, cotton irrigation is now in full swing and the camp routine has settled back into a more orderly manageable routine after the grain harvest when the camp was bedlam – jam packed full of backpackers, harvesters and experts rebuilding some irrigation systems. Crop dusters are constantly landing and taking off from the […]

Nothing remains the same.

Nothing remains the same. Life has been wonderful for me, especially the last 14 years or so spent with Kerrie. We’ve been blessed with a lifestyle that’s allowed us to see a great chunk of Australia, work when we want, play often and love unconditionally. We’ve never faced real hardship as our faith and trust […]

We’ve loved having Fiona here

Since the day Fiona arrived to help us run the Koramba Camp we’ve had the most enjoyable time with her infectious bubbly, positive and happy disposition. She’s not only taken on every job we’ve asked her but she’s completed tasks,  jobs, repairs and improvements herself as she’s identified the need. This has made our job […]

Every available acre of land that’s not already growing barley will be planted in cotton. The dry, brown landscape has been transformed again […]

Our last post was in November 2015 when baby Luke was born – not far off a year ago. It seems like just yesterday. Life in the caravan continues to be a fascinating and fun journey through these our later years. We’ve had the pleasure of helping run our boss’s business for a few months […]

Tahune Airwalk

The morning was shrouded in mountain mist and the cold mountain air was refreshing but not freezing as we breakfasted early on crumpets with honey and hot coffee. The aromas of the waking wet forest hung in the air and the subtle scent of burnt timber from the campfire last night made a pleasant addition. […]

The big free camping trial.

The big free camping trial. After a later start than normal we headed of toward Huonville in the Huon Valley where we arranged to meet Barry and Christine. The road was hilly and winding but as usual the Nissan and the Van performed faultlessly. The scenery was awesome. The leaves of the trees are in […]
