Say hello to Betsy...

Kate's choice not mine :o)

View Mark and Kate's 12 month holiday on MarknKate's travel map.

We got a call on our way back into Cairns informing us that the van was ready for collection - at last after delaying our trip south by around five days we could start making tracks!

Clean, serviced and in better condition than I remembered, Betsy was ready for her test drive. Taking her on a short route down to the marina car park we pulled up and tested various bits, fridge, aircon, radio...you know the essentials, before heading back to sort out the paper work.

Once all sorted we headed over to a nearby camp site for a few nights in order get ourselves together and also test the van out without being too far from where we bought it should anything go wrong. We picked a site that was a member of the Big4 group of sites, they're dotted around the country and really well managed and maintained...we even got ourselves an en-suite site, yeah we're still not really roughing it!
