DRIFTA Canvas Bags

DRIFTA Canvas Bags

Over the many years we’ve been travelling, finding the right packing solution for all our gear has been a challenge. While plastic tubs can be stackable, they eventually disintegrate, so we followed the jolly swagman who we think had the right idea, and chose to go with canvas. It’s weatherproof, it breathes, and it’s dustproof […]

Snow Peak & Porlex to the coffee rescue

Snow Peak & Porlex to the coffee rescue

If there’s one thing that we choose never to skimp on whether we’re at home or when travelling, it’s having a good cup of coffee. We wouldn’t consider ourselves full blown coffee snobs, but for the couple of cups we like to have each day, they’ve got to be good! Satisfying our coffee fix while […]

Our Guide to Battery Maintenance

Our Guide to Battery Maintenance

We tend to define batteries by putting them into one of two categories in the RV world. The first type is a starter battery, which is predominantly used to turn your vehicle’s engine over and supports the electrics associated with driving. The second type is the house battery used to support accessories and lifestyle features […]

Our Tips for Long Term Camping

Our Tips for Long Term Camping

The RV lifestyle lends itself to being nomadic as we travel from place to place – but there comes a time for most of us when we think, “I’d like to find lovely spot and just stay there for months!” You want a place that you can call home whilst out on the road; somewhere […]

Uniflame Camping Table

Uniflame Camping Table

If there was one camping accessory that we’ve tried a number of over the years, tables would be high up on the list. You name it, we’ve tried it…plastic and aluminium, and we even tried timber in those early days of travelling. After being introduced to the Uniflame Campfire table, we were eager to try […]

Our Setup

Our Setup

At the time of our big lap, both of us had driven Mitsubishi vehicles for so long, it was only natural that we took a Pajero for the trip.  The Pajero was fitted with a few accessories to help with towing and the long distances – we added a long range fuel tank, the suspension was upgraded, […]

5 Long Term Travel Myths

5 Long Term Travel Myths

Many of us long for that extended break where we pack up and head out for weeks or months, or perhaps a lap of the map that takes a year or longer. But if you’ve ever listened to anyone that said it’s “too hard, too expensive, too dangerous, or you’ll simply get bored”, you’d never […]

Our Caravan

Our Caravan

We’ve had our 21′ Traveller Sensation for some years now and we absolutely love it! Originally buying it with the intention of our big lap adventure, we didn’t take its purchase lightly. In fact, we went to a bundle of caravan shows for a couple of years beforehand to do plenty of research of what […]

Food Leftover Tips

Food Leftover Tips

When your camping trip is coming to an end and you’re still a couple days away from getting home, what do you do when food supplies are looking a bit thin and there’s no supermarket for the next 500kms? When you’ve either got a few leftovers to use up, or there’s not a huge selection […]
