Happy days at Baldy Top near #Quilpie  in #outbackqueensland. A beautiful warm sunny winter's day here. It was a work day for Sam. I did our washing, cleaned the house and watered our house plants and veggies. The boys and I went for a long hike before lunch exploring Baldy Top and the surrounding landscape. In the late afternoon Sam joined us as we climbed another red rocky formation called Table Top to catch the sunset. There is something so very beautiful about this landscape.

Travelling lonely outback highways in my first bus a decade ago. This is one of two images that I keep focused on in my mind for motivation when the going gets tough with our current bus conversion project. I spent many years living in the desert at Uluru and just love the wide open spaces and the beauty of outback Australia. And I can't wait to be exploring this magical landscape with my family in Bronte the bus. We've been building now for thirteen months and I'm feeling both physically and mentally exhausted. But we're on track to be living in the bus early in the new year. There are still a few big jobs in the bus to tick off before we can hit the road and travel outback highways like this. We've got to fit the fresh water tanks (540L) and grey water tanks (150L), set up the composting toilet and install an entire solar power system. We've also got to sort through and minimalise our possessions and sell our house. But I can definitely see a faint light (of sorts) at the end of the tunnel. And I've got my eyes fixed firmly on the prize. ~ Keiran.

Flashback to an epic solo roadtrip in my first house on wheels - Alice the bus. It was in January 2009 and a very hot Australian summer. After many years living at Uluru in the Northern Territory, I packed up and drove Alice back to Queensland via some of my favourite outback roads in South Australia and New South Wales. Alice kept overheating so there were frequent stops, a couple of breakdowns and more flat tyres than I care to remember! But what an incredible adventure. We sold Alice the bus earlier this year to make room in the yard for Bronte the bus. I can't wait to travel these roads again but this time in Bronte and with my family. Not long now!

Tonight's magnificent sunset show over Lake Samsonvale near #Brisbane. The boys and I were treated to a most beautiful scene! I took a day off today from working on the bus, instead enjoying a sunrise kayak in the Boondall Wetlands, a picnic lunch and splash about at Cedar Creek with the boys, and then this incredible sunset at the lake tonight! A big thank you to everyone for their supportive comments and encouragement on my last post. It's been hard yakka getting the bus built this year but I can definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel! ~ Keiran

Collecting things. One of the many cicada exoskeletons that we found today! The boys and I went on another adventure today, enjoying a picnic lunch at Boombana in D'Aguilar National Park (Mt Nebo), a rainforest circuit walk and then a refreshing late afternoon swim at our new favourite spot - Cedar Creek near Samford. A great day out! And a lovely break from bus building! ~ Keiran

Escaping the Brisbane heat yesterday! We found a perfect little swimming spot at Cedar Creek near Samford. The water was simply delightful! It's the school holidays and I'm trying to find the balance between getting our bus conversion project done and creating a few adventures and experiences for the boys. They've been so patient with me and the time I'm putting into the bus (whilst Sam is away at work each day), so it was awesome to unwind and have a laugh together in the creek yesterday.

The work crew in action this morning. After a few days of rain, the sun is shining again today. We're hoping to get the first sliding window fitted before the forecast rain arrives over the weekend. Just waiting for the final coat of paint to dry on the frame around the window opening. And then we're ready to glue the new window in!
