About Lyn and Michael

Lyn and Michael - Full Time Traveller

I retired from the work force in June 2010. Lyn and I started discussing in 2009 what we would do when I retired . Becoming full time grey nomads appealed to both of us, so the house was sold at the end of 2009 and the 5th wheeler was purchased. Our tow vehicle then was a Ford single cab tray truck. We hit the road in July 2010 as full timers.

In January 2012 we updated the tow vehicle to a Hino 300 single cab truck as we were over the GCM of the Transit.

We head of each year on our travels to where ever it leads us and then return to Melb. to have Xmas with the kids and grandkids plus great grandkids.

The rig name, (Me and Bitch), was Lyn's idea as she always calls me a bitch when I misbehave
