Newbie

Post by Bazooka » Thu Sep 14, 2017 7:42 am

G'day All, we have been caravanning on and off since 2001 and our latest venture has been with our 2012 Jayco Discovery 17.55-4 Poptop. We have just concluded a 14-week trip up the coast from Hervey Bay to Cooktown then down to Charters Towers, out to Winton, across to Emerald and down through Monto before sadly ending this journey. We look forward to exchanging information/experiences in the future.

Cheers Barry and Annie

Hi Rod and thanks for the welcome. I'm sure there is still plenty for us to learn even though we've done some lengthy 'van trips over the years including two to WA in different rigs. We're planning to go over again next year - short way over but the long way back. Gotta do it while the do-ings are do-able!

Cheers mate.

Hi Frank and Brenda - thanks for the welcome. You certainly covered some ground on your 16 week trip and there's certainly a lot to see in Qld. We were astounded by the number of vans/motorhomes on the road this trip. We really had no idea. The dust hasn't settled here yet since we got back but we're already looking forward to next year when we will cover close to 15,000k's over around 16 weeks. Roll on Easter '18.

Cheers Barry.

Hi diezeltojo - thanks for the welcome. Once we settle back in to our 'normal' routine I'm sure to be delving into the forum for pearls of wisdom. Sorting out a soft-start capacitor for our Heron Q Mk IV split system will be first cab off the rank. I'll be flat out for a couple of weeks from now, but I'll be on to that as soon as I can.

Cheers Baz
