Beautiful Baja Part 2

Beautiful Baja Part 2

The town of Loreto was next for a restock and it was a lovely historic town! Sundays see the locals out in force to enjoy “Carnitas” – a once a week pork cook-up served with corn tortillas – Yum!! As usual, if there is a cue of locals then you’re guaranteed to be in...

Beautiful Baja Part 1

Other than our GPS counting down the kms to the Mexican border, the only other indicator that you’re almost at the edge of US Sovereign Territory is the snaking cue of snowbirds eagerly waiting their turn to enter the Badlands! Why would that be I hear you ask? Well...
1000days, 100000k’s

1000days, 100000k’s

Ridgecrest is a town that primarily exists for the purpose of supporting the extensive Air Force base community on its doorstep. Anyway, we needed a tyre repair as it would seem that we can drive off-road over all sorts of nasty shale and rocks and the only two...
Do You Believe???

Do You Believe???

Generally we like to settle down for our camping experiences away from the generator crowd, a point I’ve no doubt made previously! Meaning that if you see a caravan, 5th wheel, small camper van or “A” Class motor home (Winnebago style coach camper) pretty well...
Make America Great Again!

Make America Great Again!

Following our usual travel ethos, we followed a reasonable selection of back roads that eventually deposited us at the Boeing Factory car park where we enjoyed a tour of the facility. To be honest it wasn’t overly riveting, a bit like watching paint dry really and a...
Grizzlies, Glaciers and Gold!

Grizzlies, Glaciers and Gold!

Travelling a little later in the tourist season and post what most would consider to be the opportune weather window was a deliberate choice for us. We had wanted to enjoy the amazing palate of autumn colour generated by the foliage as Mother Nature’s clock recognises...
The Last Frontier

The Last Frontier

Cottesloe Beach – a Perth institution that attracts bathers by the thousands on a lovely sunny day. So many in fact that you will struggle to wander the sands without falling on someone! Well, if you are a moose and find yourself just across the border into...
The Magnetic North

The Magnetic North

The Alaska Hwy was constructed in 1942 whilst WW2 was raging in order to create a transport corridor for the movement of troops and equipment should nearby Russia or Japan decide to make any surprise moves on Alaska during the war. It connected the contiguous US to...
Canadream

Canadream

On Canadian soil and the Cowboy Trail led us to a great little campsite! Plenty of locals were out and about enjoying the lovely wilderness camping available which was no surprise given the scenery although the weather enroute was rather awful. Weather looking ominous...
The Rockie Route

The Rockie Route

A couple of coffees, a six pack or a bottle of red! This is a long one! I’m blaming it on a lack of sufficient internet… Moab! Favoured destination of the rock crawling 4×4 community along with every other type of powered ATV you can imagine! But this...
Things are Hotting Up!

Things are Hotting Up!

I generally avoid answering questions regarding when we will be returning to Australia, as we have no desire to pinpoint an end date and then feel obligated to keep it. Hence a visit from my parents has diverted any feelings of guilt I may have felt regarding time...
The Overland Affliction!

The Overland Affliction!

We ventured along Comb Ridge, an area of around 100km in length that exhibits the obvious results of an ancient upheaval of the Earth’s crust. As with much of southern Utah, the forces that have been acting on our tiny planet over millennia are stark and so very...
The Truth is Out There Scully!!!

The Truth is Out There Scully!!!

Firstly, I always re-read my previous post before beginning the next in an effort to ensure some form of flow and continuity! Having done this, I felt it came across with an air of negativity toward our time in the US to date – polar opposite from the reality of...
I’m all shook up – # 2

I’m all shook up – # 2

Now some of you may have noticed that we had already uploaded this post about two weeks ago and some were even kind enough to make comments.  However, due to the magic of the internet (which has been less than consistent in its coverage despite the most expensive data...
I’m All Shook Up!

I’m All Shook Up!

Despite 2 internet providers to date and the most expensive data we’ve encountered anywhere in our travels we have been enjoying less coverage than in Tajikistan! Hopefully things will improve as we spend more time in built up areas! Travelling the length of the...
One Small Step for Man…

One Small Step for Man…

The first months of 2016 have been a little bit of a blur! Littlehampton has become like a second or maybe third home given our camper is our current home in reality. It’s amazing how quickly you can adapt to new surroundings and burrow in. We really enjoyed our time...
Time for a rest

Time for a rest

Firstly, Jen and I both hope that all have experienced a wonderfully relaxing Christmas and New Year and we sincerely hope that you are as excited about the year ahead as we are. So it’s been a while since we last posted an update but we didn’t want to intrude on our...
Gremlins!

Gremlins!

Hi Everyone! Been a few gremlins floating around in globatrol cyberspace for a while now. It would seem they have been covertly attempting to stop our email updates from making it to your inbox! Fortunately for us we have our own anti gremlin specialist commando...
Morocco

Morocco

Our European counterparts may not have as easy access to unpopulated lands as the Australian local, but WOW! – With Morocco just over that narrow gap of sea between continents, they do have outstanding opportunities to test their cultural comfort zone! A few hours...

Onward We Go!

Keeping posts coming with the regularity that you, our valued readers, deserve can be quite difficult at times. In my defense (Rebecca), we’ve been on the road consistently for the last few weeks and have been drinking and relaxing on the Med with friends, which is...
