The end of our Esperance expedition

After a month away from home, our summer holiday had come to an end. We had such a great time exploring new places, pushing our camper to new limits, fishing new spots and loving this lucky country. Esperance has always welcomed us and we know we will be back.  The beaches, bays and coves still…

First thoughts: guard It has been an interesting couple of weeks. We hunted around the various caravan shops and repair places to find someone to build us a stone guard for the front of the camper. We want to protect the front of the camper from wild and woolly rocks that have the potential to…
