Sue and I (Phil) have travelled through a number of lives together. We met in our late teens Sue growing up in Northcote and Ivanhoe and me in Yaraville, The Basin, Reservoir and Thornbury. In our early life together we spent time travelling and camping in an ex army series II Land Rover. Spending a lot of time in the Victorian High Country camping in a tent.
I was called up into national service soon after our wedding
Then the camping trips slowed down when the children arrived, followed by the Grand Children.

Now we are starting new having spent a few months each year for the past few years traveling in a 1970’s 17 foot Franklin pulled by a Rodeo Ute. we have stepped out with a new rig (now our home) to see as much of Australia as we can.

Being a keen history buff, it is my intention to seek out the local history of the places we visit and put my findings in this Blog.
If you enjoy finding out about remote places and people I hope you enjoy the stories I place here.
