The first few 100 ksMarch 12 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C
My take on the first few days: The Troopy is going well so far. Even fully packed he took some light off-roading like a champ. Only the coleman stove is giving me a headache. It’s lovely not to need a gas cylinder but if I cannot heat up food without restarting the flame every 2 min it’s no good either. I guess we’re still getting to know each other.
We’re getting into a good rhythm in terms of “van life”. It’s a bit harder than expected to find free camp spots that are worth staying but Jo navigated us to some awesome locations already. We shared a very nice free campsite yesterday at Bulahdelah with about 25 other RVs.
We also already met some very interesting people. Andrew for instance, who lives in his UTE (he even has a spring mattress in the back 😆). I had a very nice chat with him over coffee. He had just finished a 500km walk (in thongs!) to raise awareness for child abuse by the church.
All in all a perfect start to our journey which led us today to friends in Sydney we are staying with for the night. Time for some barbecue!
