Day 1 - On the road!!

Perth to Esperance!!

sunny 35 °C

Ok so it's 4.13pm and we are not in Esperance as yet, infact we still have 470kms to go. We scrapped Albany off the list because we were suppose to get to Esperance by 7pm (Not gonna happen) We wont get there until around 9pm tonight. So hopefuly either the caravan park owner meets us there after hours to let us in, other wise (thanks to Corinn and mum) camps 6 book have given us a few ideas for national parks. Our ownly problem is, Xmas holidays, Booked out, but it's all good as it's all part of the fun...Even if we go eat at the road house and ask them if it's alright if we have a couple of hours rest there and leave at the time they want us to leave...So the drive so far has been awsome...Cpl of small hiccups, transmission fluid over heated once, but luckily we have a mechanic on board, mind you all he had to do was open the bonnet and let it cool down, No problems with that so far again, just didnt like going up the darling ranges i think but something that needs to be checked when we get into esperance. One other thing the spotlight came off the front of the car and went under the car. Luckily we were stopping at threesome tavern and roadhouse for something to eat, other wise we would have spent awhile looking for it, It's all good though it's still in tact, just the globe smashed, though bloody spotties though they didnt crack!! Oh and we lost the blue light force cover off it ( that smashed into a million peices) But like i said before, it's all part of the fun, memories and stories to tell, and these are things that can be replaced....update later when in Esperance and lets see how tonights camping adventures pan out....LOVE YOU ALL!!

Yes I agree with that one, most helpful book i've come across, would recommend it (like you did) to anyone that is considering this trip...for the camping side of things, toilet's, shower's, who allows pets, which ones are cheap, it's just awsome...
