Day 53, 4/9/2019 Wednesday Wooli, warm Woody went off in search of oysters very early this morning…and won. The oyster shed is only open on certain days and he got lucky. He tells me that they are delicious. I’ll believe … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 53 – Minnie Water
Day 52, 3/9/2019 Tuesday Chinderah to Wooli, 27 We pull out of the park into peak hour traffic but thankfully most of the traffic is going north to the Gold Coast. Further enhancing my theory that Brisbane, Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast are rapidly merging into one very large city. Woody wants to know where they’re all going. How quickly we forget that some people do work. We’re contemplating this when we start bouncing. Oh shit! Not a puncture. We pull over and check the tyres, the car, the van. Gotcha! Bloody New South Wales concrete roads! We always forget … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 52 – Wooli or wonti?
Day 51 2/9/2019, Maryborough, Qld to Chinderah, NSW, 28 degrees It’s a bright sunny morning with only a few tweety birds to wake us. We had hoped to catch up with our mate the One Fish Wonder and his missus … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 51 – The plane, the plane!

Day 50, 1/9/2019 Sunday Cania Gorge to Maryborough, 5 – 26 It’s a treat to hear currawongs calling when you’re under the shower even if they are begging for food. Outside the sun is burning off the mist and whip … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 50 – Racing into Maryborough
Day 49, 31/8/2019 Saturday Cania Gorge, overcast low 20’s To make some room while making breakfast Woody puts the chook scraps out on the caravan drop down table. When we go outside to have a coffee there’s no sign of the bag just a bunch of cheeky currawongs and some fruit peel. Sorry chooks. We study the National Parks map and note that most of the walks seem to start at our park gate. Ok, we’ll do the Gorge View near Dragon’s Cave. It appears to be a short 2.5km, 1hour walk. It’s a warm morning and we wander along … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 49 – Gorged Out
Day 48, 30/8/2019 Friday, Mulambin to Cania Gorge, warm 26 Another beautiful morning and we quickly slip back into the old pack up routine. There are farewells all round as we’re the first to leave. The others will catch us down the track shortly. It’s already 22 degrees at 9:00am and we call into Rockhampton for a few supplies. Fruit and Vegies at Doblo’s fabulous fruit barn and spelt bread at Allenstown. We’ve been advised to avoid the New England Highway as the drought has caused Stanthorpe, Tenterfield and Tamworth to be critically low on water. Thus we pick up … Continue reading Follow the Sun, Day 48 Cania Gorge
Aug 2019, Yeppoon, Capricorn Coast, Qld We all meet upstairs at the Keppel Bay Sailing Club for the cheap and delicious calamari that Double or Nuthin’ has been raving about. We meet Double or Nuthin’ and Shirley at the club … Continue reading Keppel Bay Sailing Club
Aug 2019, Mulambin, Capricorn Coast, Qld With all of the recent talk of crackdowns on overweight caravans – Woody woke in the middle of the night and declared that the van should be destocked. “The rice cooker can go” he says “and the spare set of sheets.” This from the man who stores beer in the ‘cellar’ under the settee, in the car fridge, under the bed and in his undie drawer! At last count (or is that stocktake?) there were 70 bottles of the frothy stuff! A man’s not a camel though is he? Continue reading Mulambin Mumblings – Destocking
