The best laid plans ...
Plan A was to leave this morning for a two-month caravan holiday through central Australia. We're now on to Plan B which is to leave tomorrow morning.
Mr Boobook went to unlock the van to finish packing and the key wouldn't turn in the lock. The spare key wouldn't work either, and it's almost impossible (or very expensive because you have to break something) to break in to a caravan. It's taken a trip to Melbourne this morning to pick up another door lock and quite a few hours work to install it and we're finally able to get into the van!! Who would have thought? At least it didn't happen in the middle of nowhere.
So tomorrow we leave for 'the outback'. I'm planning to update this blog regularly so friends and family can follow our travels. That's Plan A. There's no Plan B.
