From C to D

From C to D

Unless I am mistaken, Angela and I have been rather lax in our recent attention to this here web page. The last update on our travels occurred not long after we left Sydney and that was well over one month ago. I would love to recount, step by step, our adventures and escapades, but in truth, [...]

The Mighty (and slightly abused) Patrol

The Mighty (and slightly abused) Patrol

Possibly  the most common question we get asked (apart from, “How is River?”), is “How’s the car holding up?” So I thought I would write about it and hope if I ever try to sell it, the potential sucke… buyer, doesn’t read this. So, when we left the odometer read 397143km. Nearly five months later, [...]

Sad News

Sad News

The Batty’s are coming home early! It’s not all bad news though. Angela went and got herself pregnant, so we have to cut our trip short by a few months. She is 11 weeks in, so due around April. Our last stop will be Bendalong for Australia Day, so hopefully we will see some of you [...]

Cape York – Getting to the top, almost

Cape York – Getting to the top, almost

You hear so many stories of woe coming from Cape York. While we were in Lakefield National Park, we met a group of 4WDers who were on their way south. Coming through a dip in the road, one of the drivers had become complacent and didn’t slow down. He said, “The road just dropped out [...]

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 [...]

Warning, this post contains drug use

Editors Note: I wrote this post about a week and a half ago, but after a few user issues and then technical frustrations, it got deleted three times before I could post it. As such, some of the info is dated, but we’ll do our best to catch up. Read on and enjoy. I have [...]

The Last Resort

The Last Resort

For the first couple of nights we stayed at “The Pacific View” on Kings Beach, I had trouble getting to sleep because my bed was level. It’s funny how you get used to some things, even after only five or so weeks. That is not to say a proper matress underneath a proper roof wasn’t [...]

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 [...]
