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.

After three months in lockdown at this beautiful property near Charleville, we're hitting the road again today. In these uncertain times, our plans are pretty flexible and subject to change. But for now, we're headed further west to explore #outbackqueensland. We took one last walk down to the river last night to say goodbye to our favourite spots. Everyone is super excited to be firing up the bus today and hitting the road!

Bronte the bus in travel mode. That's Percy the Prado on our 3.5 tonne tandem car trailer. Percy carries a few extra things on his roof rack, like an extension ladder (for bus roof access), beach gear and a 2.5 seater kayak. We also carry four bikes on the trailer. Our whole circus convoy is exactly 19 metres long (the maximum legal length for motorhomes) and approximately 16.5 tonnes fully loaded (well within our 19.5 tonne GVM rating). Bronte is a little slower than your average vehicle when taking off from the lights, but she builds up speed eventually and cruises comfortably on the open road at 100km/h (with the exception of hills,which Bronte prefers to chug up at a much more gentle pace). When we stay in caravan parks, we usually stop somewhere nearby to unload the car and uncouple the trailer before entering the park. It's a bit easier to manoeuvre the bus into caravan sites without the trailer. And we can then hook the trailer up behind Percy the Prado to get them parked on site too. We've fine-tuned the whole procedure over time and it really doesn't take us long. Also we tend to stay in one place for an extended period of time, so may only do this once a fortnight or so.At the moment, we've been stopped for a couple of months due to COVID-19 and are currently renting a remote property in outback Queensland.#buslife #busconversion #nomads #ontheroad #skoolie #skoolieconversion #buslifeadventure
