Motorhome Travels - November 2010

05/11/2010

The one good thing about being stuck in the city for weeks at a time is that it makes us appreciate the bush more. I am sorry to keep going on about it - but the more time I spend in the city, the less I like it.

For the last couple of weeks Tracey has been working (as an agency nurse) while I focus on some of our website work. It seems that nurses have to be able to prove that they have worked a number of hours in order to keep their nursing registration. This is the motivation for the early mornings and the driving through traffic and listening to city noise 24 hours each day.

For some reason that I can't seem to remember, we are in Welshpool which is very close to the Perth airport. Airplane noise combined with the normal city noise is starting to take it's toll on my sanity.

I am glad to say that there is light at the end of the tunnel ... the plan is to leave Perth next Thursday after Tracey's next specialist appointment, and head north in search of quiet.

The crayfish season starts on the 15th of November, and the plan is to help Ian (our cray-fisherman mate) load his boat and bring her to the mooring at Cliff Head. We then plan to do a bit of crayfishing ourselves before heading south to avoid the summer heat. It is really starting to warm up and yet again we are talking about air conditioning (not happening). I still can't see why we can't run our new diesel heater in reverse and suck heat OUT of the bus and put diesel into the tank. Now that would be a great invention.
