Heading North to the Cape!
All my life going to “the Cape” has meant Cape Cod in Massachusetts. It’s taken on a new meaning in the last few weeks as we have gotten ready for the next leg of our journey.
We are pulling out of Cooktown today and headed to Cape York to the northern most tip of Australia. This one is a bucket list item for many 4wd travelers in Australia and we’re excited to have the opportunity to give it a try.
We originally thought we would have to skip it because it is getting late in the season to make the journey and we were worried about doing it alone. We have been assured by many who have just made the trip back that we have a good couple of months before the rain comes and there are enough travelers that we don’t have to worry about getting stuck for too long if something happens. Fingers crossed!
We’ve gathered supplies, gotten Cave Lion and Siberian Tiger serviced, studied maps with other travelers and taken extra long showers. Last but not least, we’ve bundled up some extra adventurous spirit.
We’ll try to update along the way!
sounds like we might as well get ourselves prepared for some medium-high drama on this next adventure …..and will be awaiting your cleaver Cape York journey postings.
I am just so thrilled that yall have embraced this path…how adventurous for all of you. In years to come, this will be first among all the ‘back-in-the-good-ole-days .stories’
Miranda, you ought to write a cookbook..
I’m enjoying your escapades, as well as the fact that you have the guts to do it!
Love to Finn & Lake.& both of you!
