Thanks Cindy.

I am a relative new member and like most, was a lurker for a long time before I actually joined. Because I wasn't "out there" travelling I felt that I wasn't eligible to join in. After reading a lot of posts and blogs, in particular Yeoeleven, I decided that I wanted to document not only my actual travels, but my commitment to travel. We don't just wake up one morning and decide to hit the road indefinitely. There is a lot of thought that goes into getting to that stage and that is what I wanted to include in "my story". Once I put an actual date on my intended travel, I felt I had a legitimate sense of belonging in the Grey Nomad world. Whilst to many I might be seen as still in the "dreaming" stage, to me, my dreams are my reality and come 4th July 2020, I WILL be out there living the dream.

I am now counting down until D Day (Departure Day). 1389 days to go.


It's not about the Destination. It's not even about the Journey. It's about having the guts to go in the first place.

Hi all, Chris here, I have been blogging using Wordpress since March 2015. I have backdated my blog back to approx 17th June 2011 when Dianne and I took delivery of an Evergreen Ultima 5th Wheeler, 3 days after my 50th birthday. Some people buy a sportscar when they go a mid life crisis, I bought a 5th wheeler. Anyway I thought I should document my travels, while I can still remember them.

The link to the blog is,
chrisanddiannesultimaadventure.wordpress.com/

Feel free to have a look at some of our travels, don't be afraid to leave a comment or even explore some of the extra pages that I dabble with when the mood motivates me.

Another blog that I post in is for the Devil Wheelers Tasmania, a chapter of the CMCA for 5th wheelers but welcomes everyone with an interest in the Grey Nomad lifestyle (you don't even have to be grey). The link is below.

Thanks Ray and Jude, interesting reading. Your stories about Tasmania took me back to our visit 12 months ago.

Well, have retired now so the blog will start to get up a head of steam now, will have the boring info about

what it takes to get it all done and dusted before we leave. I am glad I started doing this some time ago as its a big task

and to say it can get to you if you don't keep a stable head and just keep going, and see what will be at the end of all the

issues that will get in the way.

Only have 5 weeks till I hook up the van and move along the road so not much time left.

 

Dave

We've been travelling now for almost five years and started this blog not just for family and friends to keep up with us but also as a diary for ourselves.
