Wednesday 2nd September 2015, Caboolture.

Another month has passed as we are still settling in at the new house here. We have now settled in as much as we are going to, including Linda starting to plant her garden. Otherwise we have just been doing the usual things, except that I have had a procedure done on one of my big toes to partially remove a toe nail, something I should have had done many many years ago. It has almost healed now, after I overdid it last week and caused a little infection, so hopefully from now on I won’t have any trouble with that toe, then there is another one to think about somewhere in the near future.

The caravan is now rearranged for short trip travelling instead of living in, and the breaks have been repaired, so we are now ready for a trip of a different kind, short and temporary, which will happen in the next week or so. I am at present helping Adrian of K&A do some building work creating a cover for his caravan and annexe, so when this is complete we can head off. We are only planning a short trip for a couple of days as a test trip only, to test the different conditions the van and car will be in with the shedding of a lot of weight from each. This will then dictate when we will head off for something longer. I am planning on going to Bundaberg sometime in the near future to visit some old friend we haven’t seen for some time, and this will also give the new van arrangement another test.
