Day 5: Apollo Bay to Warrnambool.

As predicted we woke this morning to strong winds and heavy rains. But every day is a good day and its all part of the adventure. Proof of this was in my morning shower. Immediately after lathering up my bits and bobs, the water temperature plummeted to icy and refused to budge even one degree […]

Great Ocean Road Trip.

Getting Ripley ready to roll, filling her freshwater tanks, checking tyre pressures, stocking her pantry and generally bringing her out of hibernation. Our map is vague.
