Fresh Faces of Camp Oven Cooking

One boy, a father of two with a crazy resume that lists stilt walking and fire twirling as two of his previous occupations. It is now Michael’s self-employed day job at Dracula’s pays the bills. Another boy, a bachelor with 2 plates and over 20 screws holding him together after a critical motorbike accident. Nick’sContinue reading “Fresh Faces of Camp Oven Cooking”

Moving a Little Further Down the Road

We have now been calling Tobermorey home for five weeks. Time has flown and we haven’t really stopped for air until this weekend. The time has come where we are moving next door (over a 100km away) to Tarlton Downs for a few weeks. It is sad to leave Tobermorey behind especially now that IContinue reading “Moving a Little Further Down the Road”

Birdsville We Meet Again!

I know I have written this a million times but this is the third time in 18 months we have visited Birdsville. I remember the first time it was such an accomplishment.

The Birdsville Track is iconic. It is a feat for many modern-day travellers, 4WD enthusiasts and caravanners. The “track” we drive these days is a world away from that of our predecessors. The road now is practically a dirt highway mostly smooth with rocky patches here and there. Back in the day soft sand dune,Continue reading “A Very Different Track”

We Won Lunch with Sammy & Bella from MKR!!!!

I love watching MKR (My Kitchen Rules) It is a brilliant and I watched the first two seasons without so much as missing an episode. This year’s show I didn’t get to see many episodes, one of the down sides of our nomadic lifestyle (actually life without TV is  a good thing really) Who wouldContinue reading “We Won Lunch with Sammy & Bella from MKR!!!!”

A Festive Easter at Griffith La Festa

I couldn’t recommend a better time of year to visit the Riverina then the Easter break. The whole town comes alive with a real festive buzz and the options of what to do are endless. The only problem you will have is deciding which events to attend. As we have been residing in Griffith forContinue reading “A Festive Easter at Griffith La Festa”
