Autumn 2018

Another year is flying past. Mike is still driving diggers and bulldozers in our district. Karen is on the Commmunity Board for the council . We still host a lot of guests and organize four wheel drive trips. Our district has a huge variety of walks and activities,a lot within an hour of Ida Downs.

Last winter Mike and I had 6 weeks in Australia with our son, four wheel driving. We drove 12,000km. Tracks we did were The Tanami, Cape Levique up above Broome. We drove the Canning stock route, Gunbarrel Highway and the Simpson desert. We had a roof top tent on top of the 4×4 Troopy landcruiser and camped all the way. Finished off driving from Birdsville to Cook Town and delivering the vehicle back ito Cairns, having started in Adelaide. It was a great trip with good weather and not to cold.

Our son now lives in Logan, near Bendigo in Victoria, so the Victorian highlands will be the next set of adventures this winter.

We look forward to hosting you something and sharing our wonderful district with you.

Regards Mike and Karen
