It’s the day before Easter 2023 and I have made a few decisions.
I was going to drive to Exmouth for the Solar eclipse on 20th April, then wander down the Gunbarrel Highway with Claudia, but I’ve realised that I just am unable to get there in time.
So, I’ve cancelled those plans. Claudia was lovely about it and suggested we maybe do another adventure later – great idea!
I still haven’t sold my Prado (I need the money from this sale to register the Troopy and have some left over for fuel). I’m hopeful that I’ll sell it over Easter!
The Troopy is booked in for its roadworthy next Tuesday, and I’m in the process of painting the roof gutters at the moment.
Everything else is ready, so I have to finish the gutters, put the roof rack back on and then keep my fingers crossed for roadworthy perfection!!!
When I was travelling with Cate and Zoe in the OKA, a few years ago now, we sometimes had the exquisite dilemma of having a few fantastic, exciting options, but with the ability of only being able to do one of them.
I was very disappointed to have to make the decision not to go to Exmouth and the Gunbarrel, but although it would have been great, in reality, it would have been a very fast trip across Australia, and after talking with Grace, and using the word “amble” a few times I realised that “ambling” actually is my philosophy for “Living On The Road”.
So my two glorious choices here were:
- rushing across Australia for Exmouth and the Gunbarrel or
- ambling along somewhere.
