Things are all falling into place nicely!
We call the current phase “getting rid of stuff” – our stuff includes debts, cars, house, furniture and just plan old junk! Who knew you could accumulate so much junk!
We are saving at a rate of knots. We’ve never had such healthy looking finances it is quite empowering.
The other recent revelation is we are now looking at purchasing a 4WD Dual Cab brand new…. currently tossing up between Holden Colorado, Mitsubishi Triton or a Mazda Bt50. We are knee deep in bargaining for the best change over (its true what they say about car salesman – new and used.)
Mum phoned this evening and her Annual Leave got approved !!! 5 weeks… We are both so happy to be sharing our first leg of the trip with my parents. Stoked that she got the leave extended so we can share more beautiful places together.
Some places that we have added to our destination wish list include Palm Valley, Chambers Pillar, Blackall (again) & Cordillo Downs.
We have been working on our camping rig and have added side panels to our Oztent. We have also added an Oztrail En-suite for showering… who said you can’t have all the bells and whistles while camping?
We went camping over Easter time at the dam near home – it went from a mere 8% to over 100% after the floods. It was nice there – not to crowded… fantastic to relax on the boat, catch some yabbies and just sit back and enjoy… a nice long – short break…
We are moving to Shaun’s mums on the 24th of June for the last 12 weeks or so before we head off on the trip to save some extra cash…
The Countdown Continues…… 126 days.
