Ready to Roll!

These are just a few of our important gear items not forgetting food and clothing 😂

I will be doing a daily trip overview once we are on the way to keep you all posted on our trip. We will be leaving on Sat 8th September driving up to Sydney and taking the late ferry to Port Aux Basques and I will keep you posted on where we will head next.

The trailer is pretty much rigged out and ready to be loaded, we are using the outpost on this trip and a 270 awning. We usually only take sleeping bags but I think we will take a duvet as well this time since we have the space and it might get a little chilly at night in September. In the meantime we are sorting out gear and packing it all up and stacking it in the garage while waiting on our cap to arrive, time is short and it is supposed to be here by labour day so hold thumbs we need this cap!

Major thanks extended to Belliveau Motors who kindly sponsored us some garb for our trip! If you are looking for great service from a dealership you cannot go wrong with these guys! Huge shout out to Richard, he literally does it all from tree maintenance to executive decisions, you are the bomb, thank you! Eben thanks for going to so much effort in finding us the trucks we wanted and for answering all our questions! Follow them on FB
