A blank page in the diary for the weekend was staring at me! Do we stay home and get some chores done or go camping? Before you know it we were getting ready to spend a night in the bush.
“One night pack light” says Dixie. Is that even possible when you have children? I tried my best to just take the essential items.Read More »
In an attempt to improve the fuel economy of our HZJ105 Landcruiser, through the process of elimination we started with checking the valve clearances. We purchased a T & E tool which didn’t work as sold for our application, some modifying was required.Read More »
Augusta is a place I have been to many times but just as a day trip from Margaret River. I have not spent quality time in Augusta until lately and I fell in love with the coastal town. It is a laid-back town full of natural beauty. The town overlooks the Hardy Inlet and Flinders Bay is a perfect spot for snorkelling and swimming.Read More »
Summer Holidays are for hitting the beach with a bit of 4 wheel driving thrown in for fun.
We departed Perth and drove 120 kilometers north along the Indian Ocean Drive to a small coastal town called Ledge Point. The main beach was crowded with holiday makers so we didn’t stick around. We dropped the tyre pressure in our 4wds and followed the coast line back towards Perth.
In search for our own private beach to have lunch and relax. Taking our time to explore the coast line.Read More »
My partner Dixie fitted a snorkel to our 100 series Landcruiser. I must admit I was a little nervous when I could hear drilling coming from outside. Then my two year old ran inside and said “look what Daddy is doing, he is putting holes in the car”. Shh don’t tell but I was thinking to myself maybe a professional should be doing this. Turns out I had nothing to worry about as he did a great job.
Anyway I will let Dixie explain the process of fitting the snorkel.Read More »
Situated on top of a limestone cliff and looking down at the beach we could see a secluded camp ground. We were driving from Port Gregory to Horrocks when we took a track off to the side to do some exploring. As we are ones who never stick to the main road we often find some awesome spots and this is how we stumbled upon Little Bay.Read More »
The more I camp the more I like to find a secluded area to call home for a few days. A place where no one visits except for the native animals. All you can hear is the sound of nature and take in the aromas of the Australia bush.

Cruising up the coast, our 4wd is loaded to the brim with camping supplies.
A deserted beach is the perfect place to pitch a tent. Nothing but white sand and blue water.Read More »

Don’t you love it when you explore a new area and you have no expectations and therefore you don’t get disappointed.
Dixie loves taking every 4wd track he spots and we often end up on a great adventure.
Whilst we were in Denmark, WA we headed down the South Coast Highway, saw a sign to Boat Harbour and figured it was worth checking out. Heading down the gravel road we spotted a track so we decided to head down it and found ourselves in Quarram Nature Reserve.
