Rain, rain and more rain
Out of respect for the seriousness of drought, I will refrain from the alternate title I considered, “rain, rain, go away”. But wow, has it rained! We have had rain every day in our camper trailer over the past few nights save for the first 3 nights in the bitter cold (when it would have been snow!) and the two nights we ended up indoors while our camper trailer was being repaired due to the gale force winds we encountered one day in combination with rain.
We are wishing we were more capable meteorologists and perhaps better studied on the random towns we are now considering visiting in an effort to escape this weather. The forecast calls for rain in every direction from our current location for the next week or so. We are already feeling pretty waterlogged and with the tent not yet fully seasoned (and therefore leaking), this is more of a literal than figurative statement.
So we need a plan. The plan was to go up the east coast before turning inland and heading south again as the seasons change. It’s winter here now and we are at the tail end of the season to see some of the most northern areas before it gets too hot.
If we head inland now (and by inland I mean 1000 miles inland) it will be a challenge to make it all the way back east to see some of far north Queensland, which we have hoped to do.
Back to studying the maps and reinventing our next few weeks.
