Go West, Young Man 2007

Who says I haven’t learned my lesson? Yes, we’re going back for more.

As we’ve told a few family and friends, our time in Sydney has come to a close, and we’re returning to WA for the foreseeable future. I’ll be keeping the same job, just working from a different place, and Ainslie will have to find another way of keeping herself amused. Again. Maybe she’ll take up writing.

In reviewing our snapshots of the last few years, we’ve achieved so much and also seen so many places other than Sydney. I’ll have to collect a Brag Sheet together before we leave.

However, we’ve saved the biggest adventure until last. We’re driving.

Yep – it’s one of the great road trips of the world, and we think the Forester is up for it. it’s over 4200 kilometres of some of the most boring countryside on the planet, but it’s one of those things you need to be able to say you’ve done at least once in your life. For me, this will be three. For the rest of the gang, it will be one.

Anyone done the journey recently? Any tips?
