Catching up (yet again)

Okay, so it's been quiet here lately. What have I been up to these past few weeks? Apart from the normal work/life stuff, I've been:
  • dealing with a bad shoulder, which meant limiting my computer work
  • spending limited computer time writing
  • planning our Outback trip
  • making lists for our trip
  • shopping for our trip (food, emergency supplies, first aid gear, equipment etc)
  • trying to work out how to organise and pack all the stuff into the truck
We'll be off in a bit over a week, for 16 days travelling with another couple up to Roma in Queensland, across to Birdsville, down the Birdsville Track to Marree in South Australia, across to Arkaroola in the Flinders Ranges, then to Rawnsley Park near the spectacular Wilpena Pound, then to Broken Hill, Nyngan and home. I think all up it's about 4,500 kilometres. And yes, I'm getting quite excited. I visited Wilpena Pound and Marree on a trip in 1988, but everything else will be new to me. It's amazing country - and great inspiration for novels!

You should be home by now or at least on your way back. Thought I'd say WELCOME BACK and that I've missed reading your blog and seeing your photos.
