It sure beats working (The Australian Outback)

The Landy, Outback AustraliaToday we are making our way home and will pass through the major townships of Dubbo, Orange, and Bathurst.

Travelling along the Great Western Highway to the town of Lithgow were we will head down the Bells Line of Road and through the tiny apple growing hamlet of Bilpin.

We’ve spent a couple of great weeks Out and About in this great country of ours, drank a toast to Brian, my father who passed away last year, and who always longed to drive along the Birdsville Track.

But he was with us in spirit.

And as the years pass by we will recall this trip like it was only yesterday that we packed ourselves in “The Landy” and made the journey west…into the Outback!

    Great trip, Baz. :-) I’d love to do the Birdsville Track, but it’s not likely. Glad you were able to take both your dad (in spirit) and your son on the trip.
