Mar 18, 2015 - Bowral - Alan Schofield

Left Sydney on Tuesday 17th stopping at a truck stop on the way down to Bowral. Called in on Wednesday to see 95 year old Alan Schofield, Mal's dad.

I hope I'm so active and mentally on the ball if I'm so lucky to reach that age. Promised we would stop in on the way back whenever.

Sep 5, 2011 - Nullarbor Plain - Bowral

So... After 7 months on the road we have decided to head home to the Southern Highlands! We travelled for 5 days straight across from Perth to the Nullarbor and beyond into South Australia. We stopped in Greenock, SA with Pete's Aunty Chris for 4 nights break - the kids definitely needed to run around a bit & we needed a few relaxing days too, as well as a chance to catch up with Aunty Chris over a few champagnes again! We then hit the road again at a more leisurely pace, stopping at Mildura, Hay & then finally Yass. We had a very flash...
