REFLECTIONS

 

Kilometres                            13,634

National Parks                        About 10

Dirt/sandy/rocky/extremely rocky- roads/

tracks/beaches/riverbeds              Lots –  well over 2000 kilometres

Dinner under the stars                Approximately 80

Campfires                             Lots but not enough

Injuries                              One from collecting fire wood!

Camper unpacking/packing up           Approximately 50 times

Swims – beach and gorges              Always cool and refreshing!! But I think the ocean swim in the beautiful blue water at Cable Beach after being on Gibb river road for two weeks was my fave.

Bags of ice                           75 or thereabouts (have to keep the Princesses’ prosecco cold!!)

Shells                                Got myself a new collection!!

Crocodiles                            Enough to know that swimming in NT and Kimberly not always a good idea!!

Dolphins/Turtles                      Beautiful, lots

Humpback Whales                       One of my highlights, lots and lots around Exmouth

Birds                                 Too many to list but love the black cockatoos on the Gibb River Road, Jabirus in Kakadu & Emus of course

Fuel                                  Couldn’t bear to keep a record of the cost!!! Most expensive $2.10/litre diesel

Memories                              Countless and absolutely priceless – Trip of a lifetime!

Greg’s List of Credits;              The Prosecco princess for being a wonderful travelling companion.

Isuzu D-Max for being a tough truck

ARB for great Suspension over all the corrugations

Pioneer Camper for being a great home for our three month trip

All the remote bottle shops that stocked Prosecco, made the Princess happy!

The weather gods, no rain until last few days

Andy from North bound charters, Rob caught her first barra and I landed two threadfin salmon over a metre long

The Victorians we met at a roadhouse in the NT for my one and only hangover (worth it)

Willie Nelson for “on the road again”!!
