Ready, set, go

Well the camper trailer is packed, kids are asleep, and we're all set for our trip south.

For months I've been planning to head down the Kidman Way to get a small taste of outback NSW but the other night when I was checking out the weather for Bourke, I saw it was forecast to snow in the Snowy Mountains at the end of the week.

Anyone with children will know that if you're kids have been desperate to see or experience something, it doesn't matter what you've planned to do, of course their wishes will win you over every time.

And so tomorrow morning instead of heading off to Goondiwindi and Moree heading towards Walgett for the night, we're heading due south and plan to overnight in Tenterfield and check out Thunderbolt's hideout, Bald Rock and make our way south via the New England Ranges, perhaps detour to Dubbo to visit the zoo, and freeze our butts off in the Snowy Mountains.

I don't really mind what we end up doing. I love the feeling of being completely open and flexible to whatever comes our way. We will have a great time wherever we go, whatever we do.

Ahh holidays, nothing quite like them to get over the stress of packing!!


  1. Wow Jo, I didn't realise you guys were going away over these hols. Have an AMAZING time! Can't wait to hear all about your adventures.

  2. I didn't know you were going for 14 moths, Jo!!!! We are taking our own family up north in our camper van for 3 wks next month & I am so excited yet feeling daunted...can't imagine the prep involved for 14 mths away :) What a great gift for your family - have a wonderful adventure - it will be so worth it. xx
