Thursday, Jan 06, 2011 at 10:13


Well, my last blog was in September and here I am in Jan 2011 suggesting I might catch up with blogging; Hah ! To be fair I've been fairly regular on Twitter (Also posted to Facebook) as @DougandDog, but never onposted to here.

Recap: I started from Sarina, Qld in March 2010 and my 46 stops have been at:
Prosperpine (Cyclone Ului - a great start !), Bowen, Burdekin Dam, Charters Towers, Greenvale, Atherton, Cooktown, Cape Tribulation , Georgetown, Normanton, Kurrumba, Mt Isa
Wonarah, Dunmarra, Pine Creek, Darwin, Katherine
Lake Argyle, Wyndham,
Gibb River Road: Home Valley, Ellendale, Gibb River, King Leopold Range,
Derby, Quondong (Broome), BarnHill, Pardoo, Karratha, Carnarvon, Coronation Beach (Geraldton), Sandy Cape (Jurien), Swan Valley (Perth), Margaret River, Albany, Esperance,
Nullarbor: John Eyre, Eucla (lunch), Nullarbor Roadhouse,
Wudinna, Port Augusta, Point Sturt, Mt Barker,
Horsham, Koroit,
Queenscliffe Ferry Crossing, Lakes Entrance.

The above with a fair amount of sightseeing included, although travelling with a dog excluded National Parks, of course.

I'm now at Lakes Entrance with friends for a few weeks, totally camped out after 10 months and 22,000kms under canvas, enjoying civilisation for a while.
My (current) final desination is Tasmania, Bass Strait crossing booked for 28th Jan, where I hope to settle for a few months before returning to the UK after 20 years plus in Australia.

At some stage the whole rig will be up for sale, but not quite yet. Please message me if you have an interest, or if you have any questions about my trip.

Happy Travelling & a Happy New Year !!
