What's the bet we divorse before we get to Alice?

My mates are a miserable bunch.

I have been planning the trip of a lifetime with the wife and the kids, and they are running a book on whether the wife and I are divorced by Alice Springs - about 7 days into a 80 day epic caravan trek through Australia. As if...

80 days - from Mildura, Port Augusta, up to Kakadu, Broome, and Perth - towing a van with the wife, and the fruit from our loins.

It won't be all beer and skittles- there are 3 kids - who can't sit in the same car for 5 minutes without the niggling, teasing or wind passing that after 20 mintues leads to the hollow threat " help me I leave you the side of the road and you can get home yourself ...". Then there is my super handy repair skills - god help us if we break down. And the caravan is a bit dodgy as well -

Hmm - I wonder what odds they will give me.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Strap yourself in - we plan to give you a daily itininery of the journey, point to point km, caravan parks we stay in - the sites, travel times, where the good grub can be found, and answer any questions.

Cheers -



  1. I am writing articles on Hubpages for some months. It is really a great way to increase traffic to your website ( for example, I have 2 blogs and I link to them from my articles). Just a piece of advice for those who lack of traffic: If You want to get your site's URL mentioned in lots of places where others are likely to find it and follow that link back to you than you should take ito consideration the following: StumbleUpon; Digg; RedGage;; Technorati; Facebook, Tweeter; and many others...
