My Mum & her husband Col have packed up their belongings, put most of it in storage, purchased a “big rig” and are heading off on a 3-5 year working holiday around Australia!
While they tie up a few loose ends they’ve been staying in the Stockton Holiday Village. We drove up this morning spend the day with them.
Mum & Col custom designed their caravan; it’s gun-metal & light grey exterior is finished inside with sophisticated grey leather, wood & veneer.
It has so many cool little cubby-holes on the outside for storage, a TV arm (using the portable flat-screen from their bedroom), a BBQ, a heated shower, outer electrics & a table.
Oh man, their car is ginormous! Because of the size of the van a Toyota Landcruiser wouldn’t cut it, so they had to buy a custom converted American Dodge Ram 3500. It’s McMassive!
The inside is awesome! If you’re going to live in close-quarters with someone for a long period of time (even if he is your husband) it helps to have some well designed space!
Every single inch of potential space is used for storage. Jay was impressed with the tech hook-up; wireless internet, sat-phone, emergency beacon & solar panels. The van is a completely self sufficient so they can “free camp”.
Gracie & her Dad Jim came over for lunch too (I forgot to take photos of our BBQ feast – shock! horror!). It’s nice that Jim & Col get along so well.
It’s going to be a while til I see my Mummy again. I was sad as we drove back down the freeway tonight. But I’m happy she’s heading off on her dream adventure!
