Doin’ a lap

We have been a little quiet of late. Some changes to our plans were made due to instability of travel. So … we took the plunge, went back to Cairns, swapped our touring bicycles for the mountain bikes and prepped the cruiser.

1998 80 Series Land Cruiser ready for action.

Our plan now is to wander around this magnificent country, see the sites and experience places that we are yet to see.

The old girl has an inverter, so we have 240V in the cab. Further appointments include a new radio with bluetooth so we can rock Spotify and a 30-40 year old UHF for safety.

Rear seat gone.

Being only Mandy and I touring this time, I decided to modify the rear space. The timber is hinged, giving access to stuff and things that aren’t used often. Other modifications include brackets to hold each bicycle, a second sealed battery, storage solutions for walking sticks, bum bags, the high lift jack, bow saw, axe, fishing gear, socket set and all my other tools.

Out the back

To finish it off, we have food storage, two burners stove, floors, fridge, chairs, table, water storage and room for our clothes and camping gear.

In general, we are now ready for our next adventure.
