are a youngish couple and have two
beautiful boys. Alex is 12 years and Harry is 8 years.
In October 2001, only 5
weeks after Harry was hatched we set
off on a 2 month trip to North Queensland. At the time our home on
wheels was a very old Chesney Kampa GT (which we loved to death), so my

years. Unlike the first trip this one will be a combination of a little
work as well as touring.

was departure day. To follow our
