We have been home a couple of weeks and though it was our plan to only hang around a week it appears it will be at least another week before we 'Hit The Road' again. I have had a change of pain relief medication due to an allergic reaction and another visit to the Dr before we leave to make sure all is OK. For those that are in their Seniors years and are fit, healthy & flexible ... you have already won Life's Lotto, I envy you.
The time home has mainly been lovely sunny days though the temperatures are not anywhere high enough to stop the body aches, But the rain free days have given me the opportunity to do some minor maintenance on the Van & Ute, We love being camped at Ningaloo for the two months but always conscious of the Car & Van being in a salt environment, so when given the opportunity to give everything a good clean i make the most of it. I also need to fit a new Tuner/DVD player in the van.
I have taken one of our Hobie Kayak's back to be assessed for warranty replacement as it had cracked in the hull where the pedals fit. Hobie are one of the few Company's i can thoroughly recommend for their after sales service, In the past we have had to have an Inflatable Hobie replaced twice and the attitude they have is not 'Too Bad, it's out of warranty' but one of each claim is assessed on the basis of what the problem actually is and should it not to have occurred at all or it be a rare occurrence then they look after the customer, Our Kayak is a Year out of it's two year warranty period but we have been told to expect to get a new Kayak.
When we do leave we have decided to visit our youngest daughter in Adelaide for a week before making our way up to Qld and basing ourselves in the Hinterland of the Sunshine Coast for a Month before making our way back down to Alice Springs to attend the Bushtracker Owners Group Muster.
Once we do get back on the road I will attempt to update the blog regularly .......... Stay Tuned
