Travels on halt for new canopy

Hey there! Since arriving back in Brisbane after our Western Qld short jaunt we have put our travels on hold for a month or so as we get a new canopy built for our F-truck.

The old canopy was great but cumbersome getting access to things inside, as we had an outboard motor, tyres & a car fridge to navigate over to reach chairs and storage items towards the front. Anyone who owns a canopy like ours might understand what we mean. So we bit the bullet and organised the building of a 5-door aluminium canopy for the old truck. Our ‘Tinnie Tosser’ boat loader & tinnie will still go up top and the same items will now have a new, more accessible home in the canopy.

I’m hoping ‘B’ will not forget my photos and display boards too! Somehow all the ‘mens stuff’ gets first preference in trucks – has anyone else noticed that?! 🙂

After that we are back to Ayr in North Queensland for the Cane Season. So if you are passing through Ayr on either the first or third Sunday of the month when the Plantation Park Markets are on, drop in and see me, mention my blog and I might be able to find you a photo memento too hard to resist!

If you are travelling north this winter don’t skip Ayr. It’s a lovely small town with some great cane fires for photo ops – the Burdekin region is one of the last remaining areas to burn their cane so stop for a night or more and check out what Ayr has to offer – it’s only 85klms from Townsville.
