    Happy - hell yeah! Dream come true!

    Anyone who's read about our travel plans will likely recall my wife & I's hope to find a little slice of Kimberley heaven in which to spend the 2018/19 wet season.

    We had put out a few feelers out, but had been getting little back & had almost resigned ourselves to getting up there later in the season with fingers crossed that something might turn up once we were there.

    This afternoon that changed ..... and how!

    Last week we wrote to friends of friends who own a small 'eco-resort' up near the top of the Dampier Peninsula (180kms north of Broome), offering ourselves as off-season/Wet season caretakers & they have said "Yes". Wooohooo!!!

    Details yet to be sorted out, but it now looks like we will be spending 6 to 8 months in what , given a choice, would have been at the top of our list. We have been dancing around our living room & can't stop grinning stupidly at each other.

    Not only does it give us the opportunity to experience a wet season in the Kimberley (personal bucketlist item), but it also adds structure to our forthcoming journey. Until now our focus had been mainly on crossing the western deserts, an adventure in itself, but now the crossing has purpose. In addition it will enable us to build on the connections we made with folk when we were up that way back in 2009, some of whom are related to the owners of the place we will be looking after.

    Looks like a magic place Cuppa, and looks like anyone can catch fish (well until you get there anyway).
    Ease up on the dancing, remember you've just had the knee done.

    So you'll be able to collect me from Broome airport then?
    Cheers

    Finally packed ready for leaving in the morning ,those last minute snot jobs just built up , dramas this morning when I tried to start the GQ I got click click crickets well that explains the hard start lately .
    Lucky just a flick of the switch to the acc batteries and away she went so got a load test done and yeah on the way out but lucky I can get one here cheap .
    Price of diesel just went up six cents so they definitely know I'm leaving the buggers , not sure when I will get to the cape @TPC but cold weather may mean big driving days .
