    Weekend: Border run

    Hi all, early December we decided to just and get in a quick long weekend trip before school holidays.

    A four day weekend and an appetite for new horizons. That was how we ended up at the Queensland border. Creamy riverland bulldust in the rear view, stoic gums filtering the hot, summer sun.

    We had a couple of days off scheduled, with adventurous plans to find somewhere new to stake out the swag. But, with the weatherman promising a sticky tar heatwave, we abandoned our bushwalking, basecamp plans. Instead, David suggested we expand our journey to enjoy an air conditioned, snack fuelled roadtrip. With our typical peruse of the map, we plotted a shiney new route. I then scouted out camping locations, mitigating the unknown mileage we may or may not cover. I had a few cards to play, but we still had to be back at work Monday morning.

    Leaving work early on Wednesday afternoon, didnt really happen. Neither did packing much more than a clothes bag on the Tuesday. So, preparing the house for a hot weekend on its own, we packed the LandCruiser with the essentials, after work on Wednesday. Clothes, cameras, fridge. Our fire kit jettisoned in lieu of a statewide fireban. David topped up the water tanks whilst I made up the swag with fresh sheets.

    Another great write up. You certainly can set a scene and mood with your wording. Got to to love the solitude of solo vehicle touring.
