We are a husband and wife who love our 4WD’s and camping and we spend a lot of time travelling Australia together. After the sudden death of one of our parents a few years ago we decided that life was too short and you never know what may lie around the corner. We now live life to the fullest and are doing everything we can, while we can, exploring some amazing parts of the country and most importantly, we are making memories that will last a lifetime.
Generally we travel by ourselves, but one of our friends, Vic Widman of Great Divide Tours, has teamed up with Charity Car Events to run an outback 4WD rally later this year to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. We realise we are very fortunate to live the life we do and would therefore like to give a little back to others who may be struggling in life, so we have decided this was something we would love to be part of.
On Sunday 30 July 2017 a group of 4WD enthusiasts will start a 7 day convoy from Cobar in Far Western NSW and over the next week we will travel to Tibooburra, Innamincka, Birdsville, Maree, Flinders Ranges and finally finishing up in Broken Hill. The trip will also include a day trip in to the Simpson Desert to tackle the iconic ‘Big Red’, the biggest sand dune in the Simpson Desert. We did this years ago in our old 4WD, so will be great to take the new one out there as well.
