On the wallaby

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.

Hopefully that's the only problem you have on the trip. If you happen to run into a lady called Helen, from Prahran, somewhere down the track, say hello :-) She and her husband are also heading off today to drive to the Kimberley in what sounds like quite a large family convoy. They'll be away for 3 1/2 - 4 months. I know her from my gym group.
