Far too soon...
27.03.2011 - 29.03.2011
Well well, here we are back home - and far too soon. Now before some of you start rejoicing in your winnings on wagers placed on how long we would survive on this mission... oh yes, we are very well aware of these wagers going on behind the scenes... and frankly quite dissapointed that we were not given the opportunity to make some cash ourselves... Our thoughts are that 'Jason-the-banker' is secretly fretting that he may lose big!
None-the-less, home is only a temporary stop while Ang flies off to Zambia for two months to help mom renovate her safari lodge - after that its back on the road and the wagers may resume.
It is good to be home though. Its been 4 hrs since driving up the driveway and already we have:
- been telemarketed 3 times
- had altications with the neighbour over a dog-fight
- had the local council office pay us a visit over the said above altication
The last week or so away has been a great introduction to what we hope to experience. During the past few days we did a loop drive of 47kms though the Abercrombie River national park - took us just over 6 hrs including an hour lunch stop
- mostly spent in low range climbing up and down tree-covered ridges and crossing small rivers and streams.
Conversation is getting deeper - we are getting to know each other again and having a real good time forming opinions on all of you guys (love you all...!!). By the end of this trip we will surely have all your relationships well and truly analysed. We could do a per couple report if anyone is interested...?
We did stumble on a few pretty stunning spots and views and even an old mud cottage surrounded by apple trees bearing the sweetest apples which we ate and picked enough for Ang to do an apple crumble on the fire that night for desert - yummy!
The next 2 months will be dedicated to getting ahead with some work and some mods on the car/trailer kit. We have worked out a few areas for improvement or strengthening...
Blogs will be slow until June... thanks for reading along and posting comments.
