Thorny Problem

You’re not just out in the back blocks, but Geoff, there’s no engine or wheels, you’re going nowhere mate 🙂 It would have been difficut for the person who abandoned the car some decades ago. But now its even more difficult for the environment, on the W.A. side there was a wreck every 1 – 2 kms between Laverton and Warakurna. And they’re just siting there clogging up the lanscape, rusting slowly, leaching plastic and rubber into the soil, broken glass and more. On the Northern Territory side they seem to tow them away, there were only two wrecks on that side in over a 1,000 kms by comparison. They don’t seem to have a problem with cleaning up in the Northern Territory, but in W.A. we sure do.

That Road Less Travelled

We left the city to get to the bush

for flora and fauna we were in a rush;

We hit the road with Geoff and Su,

and hoping our long awaited dream would come true.

Fortunately the road was modern and flush,

not much of it was dust or mush.

But when we got out to the wilds,

it was the road less travelled;

and boy did we wish, and whine, and dream,

that it was more than just gravel.

The Adventure Begins

IMG_0015.jpg

Yesterday Lyn and I drove the 172kms to Perth to pick up our hired 4×4 camper. We’ve been planing this for some time. We’re heading off with our good friends Geoff and Su out bush in Western Australia and on into the Northern Territory. Today we just shopped, stocked and packed the wagon, lots of fun trying to remember where half the camping gear was stashed since last year’s trip out bush. tomorrow we set off from our home in Bunbury for Merredin, where Geoff and Su live, a journey of 427kms and lots of favourite places for us to revisit along the way.
