Half a year in status updates

Half a year in status updates

As a part of his job Brendan spends a lot of time writing reviews about things. Cars, caravans, holiday destinations. You name it, he’s reviewed it just about.  So it was only appropriate that he provide a review of our own lives this past 12 months. And what a 12 months it was apparently. It [...]

2013. A Review.

2013. A Review.

I had to go through the Camera Roll on my phone to get some sort of a clue about what has happened this year. It doesn’t feel like it was only a year ago that we welcomed in this one from our backyard. When I think back to it, I have to remember that Asher couldn’t [...]

A letter of resignation

A letter of resignation

One of the worst experiences of our trip around Australia was the night of July 8, 2011. Nothing went right. That morning we’d departed from Seaforth, a small town about 40 minutes north of Mackay. We’d spent a week or so there, visited by Megan and Pete, sharing our time with friends we’d met earlier [...]

Beaten by a year two kid.

Here is the first work I ever had published. To date, I have written nothing better. The Ghost Castle Once upon a time there was a big ghost house and a ghost lived in it. No one went near it except me because I could fight ghosts. Some people call me ghost fighter and some [...]

For friendship’s sake

For friendship’s sake

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be 10 years out of school and still have the same group of friends that made it fun. There is little doubt that a shared faith in the God of the Bible and a very social church life has contributed to that. No doubt too, is the shelter of [...]

Bucket Lists

Bucket Lists

We’ve all got one, even if we won’t admit to it, or call it by a different name. On my list are things like; shuffle a deck of cards back into order; write a song that gets voted into Triple J’s Hottest 100; make a video that goes viral on the internet. I don’t think [...]

This is what I miss

This is what I miss

A year ago now, our little family of three set off on a trip we never thought we’d do. Packed into the 4WD, we had no plan but head north, less money in our bank than we owed on credit cards, and only a hope that we would get more, somehow. We’ve been back almost [...]

Cape York – Lakefield National Park

Cape York – Lakefield National Park

It has been just over 13 weeks since we left Sydney and not since then have I felt the same sense of anticipation as the day we drove north out of Cairns. With the Big C finally in our rear-vision, we had left behind the last of the big eastern coast cities and were headed [...]

Where have all the waves gone??

Where have all the waves gone??

Ah, that’s better! A power point and full reception! You Beauty! As I mentioned in our last post, we had decided to make camp in the Byfield National Park, along 9 Mile Beach. That is if you can really call it a beach. We met a few locals while we were camped and they each [...]

South-west of what?

South-west of what?

We make this post from the remote, dangerous and uncharted Gold Coast (http://fms.ws/4nqYT), but a lot has happened since our last update. We left Crescent Head after submitting my assignment and for the first time this trip locked in the hubs and put the Patrol in 4WD. About two or three kilometres up the road [...]
