Our very first post…yay!

In January 2012, Joe and Sharni will leave their jobs to embark on a long term camping trip around Australia!

Joe has spent the last 10 years dreaming of the day he would purchase a Hilux and take it easy by travelling, camping, 4WDing, fishing, exploring Australia and having time off work.

Sharni has been listening to Joe talk and talk and talk and talk about his dream of ‘being a bum’ for what seems like eternity! AND after a decade of such quotes like …

  • “when I get the Hilux…”
  •  “when I just camp and fish for a living…”
  • “when I retire and fish…”

Sharni was starting to think that day would never come. Then in October, Joe surprised Sharni with a 2007 white SR5 Toyota Hilux, FINALLY!

It is our hope to keep our site updated leading up to our trip and when we hit the road.

Currently, Joe is busy buying everything and anything that can fit onto or into the Hilux to turn it into the ultimate 4WD home on wheels while Sharni is busy packing up the house and trying to figure out which shoes and dresses she can fit in the back of the Hilux!

      How did Juan and yourself enjoy Busselton? I was there two weekends ago for a big music festival. I hope you kept away from the grass…make sure you bring a nice big cushion to class with you in Year Three so you can still sit on the grass without actually touching it 🙂
