Less than 7 weeks to go

This weekend we aimed to get so much done and well in short we didn’t get as much as we thought.

On Sunday we went for a drive down to Girraween National Park near the NSW border to go bushwalking and do a bit off-roading. The Colorado’s first time in the dirt and as it turns out a bit of mud.

What goes up must come down!

On the way home from Girraween we decided to give the Condamine River Road, near Killarney a crack. WOW, what an amazing spot. A picture can’t do it justice. Definitely worth a go for all those novice 4 wheel drivers out there, 14 creek crossings.

We got a bit carried away, we went a bit too far and it was getting way to late to be out there. It started to rain and I mean pour, it got a bit boggy, quickly. We had a bit of a slip and slide going on and knocked the side step around. Easy fix. All in all, it was a great adventure and we are going to head down to the Condamine River Road again before we go, take my parents and camp overnight.

Over the weekend we purchased a few odds and ends for the trip including; a video camera, camping stove, dual fuel light, hiking boots, recovery kit and ordered our 4WD awning.

We got a start on the storage rig in the back of the Colorado. Shaun has built it all from scratch. Next week he will be assembling it.
