Hello all. I'm Baldricks Mate. Wifey and I are in our late 40's.
We are a long time 4wd'ers & campers. I am a mad trout fisherman.
As I've got older the 4wding focus has got less but the camping has increased - we used to camp so we could go 4wding, now we use to 4wd to access camping places and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Wifey and I are mid way through preparing for a great escape for 2009. We are going to run away from home!
We figure to be gone for about 2 years but that depends on the budget.
The level of planning is turning out to be quite higher than we first expected and we've discovered that even with what we thought was a fair amount of experience and equipment, everything is at a whole new level outside even our longest touring holidays, so its back to learning again.
Our vehicle is a diesel Rodeo trayback with a custom storage body on the back and a small but heavy duty camper trailer.
