Locked and Loaded-Back on the Road

rule no 1 when towing – do a mmmm yeah, didn’t happen! I got as far as Ravenshoe before discovering the trailer plug had been dragging along the road. Lucky for me mr buzz had come for a ride and replaced it on the roadside. BIG thank you!

Didn’t take too many kms to realise I was no longer in the beautiful lush green atherton tablelands..barren dry landscape across the Savannah Way apart from the Newcastle Range with its rolling hills and wooded Savannah grasslands heading towards Georgetown. Great roads most of the way. In sections you think your on an airport runway-wide, straight and smooth bitumen. Suddenly the ‘runway’ disappears and your on a one lane track! Can be a bit tricky with on coming traffic.

I met up with the lovely miss Gerry and her husband Mark at the Mt Surprise roadhouse-reminded me a large part of travelling is about the great people you meet and the stories and laughter shared. Speaking of great people I had lovely camping neighbours last night miss denise and mr jack-she offered me a gin and tonic, how could I refuse hehehehe we ended up at the Georgetown golf club for a home cooked $10 lasagna with salad. Bargain-and no cooking or washing up!

Just easing myself back into life on the road.

About Heather

I’m free spirited by nature with a gypsy soul. I’ve never really been content to stay in the one place. There’s just too much to see and do in what really is a short life (when you think about it in the big picture). My mission is to experience as much as I can. To live not just exist. Growing up I always said I was going to be an old lady riding around on a Harley Davidson with purple rinse in my hair. So far one out of three isn’t bad. I’m taking a break, loading up the Fat Bob, hitching up ‘the trailer’ for some nomadic adventures around Australia. I’ve given away and sold off most of my possessions (a very liberating experience). The rest has gone into storage. Find Out More »
