Hello guys, good on ya's, would love some more details if you dont mind, it gives us some better ideas of who is out there and why we do this kind of thing .....
So where are you coming from, what made you do it, are you planning on working much or just "top up's", what do the kids think ......
And dont get to keen on surfing up there guys, crocs race the sharks to see who can eat you first ...
Cheers guys, you will love this site..

We will be working for top ups i work in the building industry so i guess i will be doing some of that.
We will do pretty much any think so we can meet more locals and share there knowledge.
I am 43 and want to share it with the kids , every one talks about it and they don't make the opportunity so we said we will just go!! selling up every think and we are off in 7 or 8 weeks.
The kids are so excited they all have there own laptops to document there own journey.

Excellent, you are so right about people saying they want to do it but never do it ....... we have done it for 10 years, had 2 of the kids whilst working out n about, we have done it more like gypsy's, working as our main thing but moving to new spots, we started at the top of WA (near Cape Leveque), then to Kakadu (worked at Cooinda), then Darwin, then Leeton NSW, then back to Darwin, the to Arnhem Land (Maningrida), the to a tiny little island in the Gulf, then Darwin again (havin babys !!), the Vic River Nat Park NT, then a short stint at the Roper River NT, then down the Tanimi Desert, now at Doomadgee QLD ...............
Never be scared of what may be around the next corner eh, you guys will LOVE it....
Cheers and good luck
(get ya kids (and you guys) on face book, best way to share with ya family)

You'll have a great time! We've got a similar set-up (22' caravan, 100 series turbo diesel cruiser) and have been on the road since January 2010, with our four kids. We have no time frame or real plans either...and we stop to work as we need it.

Enjoy your time, it is a fantastic lifestyle! The kids just make it more fun!
