Comment  ::   Ha ha, I dunno the answer to the first question, but I normally cross the road to get to the hardware store to buy another tool.

Comment  ::   Hi Rob,
Seen your website on an Arduino blog. I'm a preserver of the personal website as I think social media has a couple of little, issues. You have done a marvellous job. Thank you Sir for taking the time to documenting your journey.

Comment  ::   Hi Adam,

Thanks, yes I too am not a big fan of social media, I do have an FB account but am not that active with it. My blog here has been running for 20 years and at any time I can easily go back and read what we did or where we were on a given date, can you imagine doing that on FB and even if you could they can change the rules at any time and POOF, it's all gone. I know because it happened to someone I used to know.

So lately I've been putting more time into this site.

Comment  ::   Hi Phillip,

Yeah we're still doin' fine. Dropped anchor on our land up here in central QLD. I often wonder how various family members are doing but I guess I'm too slack to actually try and find out Plus I don't have any contact details for you guys.

We really enjoyed your company all those years (about 20) ago, where does the time go eh?

Rob & Chris

Comment  ::   Well, just wanted to say hi again for a moment. Hope all is well with you and yours.
We have been enjoying a seemingly endless string of 98 deg days and 90% humidity. Can't believe I am about to say this, but looking forward to cooler weather.

And to add that nomadicista seems to have ended (or maybe my computer is messed up and won't allow connection). And the blog that Mr Sharkey had seems to have disappeared, too. Hope they are only temporarily off line...

Comment  ::   Yeah all is good here, just tinkerin' with small jobs and thinking about the design of a camper build in the Landcruiser.

Yep, it does look like nomadicista is having trouble, still there it seems but gives an SQL error, that's not a good sign.

It was inspiring to read your diary, I'm starting a similar project with a Mercedes-Benz 1981 6x6 truck from the Brazilian Army, but I'm going to use a shipping container as my home. In your new tour if you come to South America, look for me, it will be a pleasure to receive you. (by Google Translate)

Comment  ::   Hi Marcos.

Thanks. I did some work for a Brazilian company a couple of years ago, they are down not far from the Pantanal and I was hoping they would invite me over to finish the job, then I could go take photos there. Never happened

Unfortunately I doubt we'll ever go overseas again.

Good luck with the build, it's a worthwhile thing to do that's for sure.

Comment  ::   #3 eh. You're a glutton for punishment

Yeah I'd love to see some pics when you get a chance.

We've had it pretty easy here, CV19 has had no effect on us. I hope it's not been too big a problem for you over there.

Comment  ::   Thanks for sharing your inspiring journey and life. I am in the process of designing and building an expedition camper - and you have really stretched my imagination ! Wonderful photography as well. Safe travels.

Comment  ::   Hi Dan,
Thanks for dropping in and saying g'day.

Building an expedition camper is one of the most interesting projects you can do IMO. So many different skills required and things to think about.

Good luck with yours.

Comment  ::   Wow that was a lifetime ago eh? That was one of the best camps we've had, No we have dropped anchor now on land up near Bundaberg. Still got the truck but it's no longer registered as we don't plan to use it again.

A shame really as it's just wasting away.

Comment  ::   Hi Rob

Just came across your for sale ad reposted by Laurens Wildeboer. The truck is magnificent and you've really had some great adventures in it by the looks. Good luck with the sale. Max.

Comment  ::   Thanks Max. It's going to be sad to see it go but I won't use it again and it's getting in worse condition every day, so time to be pragmatic.

Comment  ::   LoL, now, for the nice things. Impressive what you created and manifested with your wife over the years. (My heart goes out to you for your loss.)
It's a great way to live. Plus, it most likely will be the wave of the future with how things are going these days.
Bet your night sky pictures and sunsets/sunrises are something, but more importantly the feel of tranquity and independence from living on your land and in your home. True creativity.
I too am a product of the 70's. In my 30's tried working out how to be self sufficient with energy and food needs with small group, but some got too caught up in issues of land ownership and what not; so it did not get off ground. Closest to a simple life was living in mountains.
You've inspiring. I retire in year, have to push my boundaries to see how I want to spend my time with the next adventure of life. New set of dreams...
Look forward to exploring your blog more!

Comment  ::   Hi Cat,

I can see many advantages to having a community, but unfortunately that involves people and all the BS they bring with them. Trouble is you can't do everything yourself either.

The truck is up for sale now as you've probably seen, I've not really advertised it but have had a few people interested. Time for me to move on I think.

As for the way things are going, yes I might get a bit hairy in the next few years, I'm trying to isolate myself from that as much as is practical.
