05 Jun On the road to Freo
Considering its Australia’s winter, the Esplanade of Surfers Paradise was scorching as Vintage Adventurer Rod Wade began the next instalment of his Ocean 2 Ocean challenges, this time on home soil.
Leaving the soft sand of the Gold Coast at 10am on Tues 3rd June, Rod and his co-driver Austin Ritchie started the first leg of the 9,000km journey in good spirits, heading to the mountains of Queensland before levelling out as they reached the ‘outback’ and into New South Wales.
With 4,500km to cover by approx 8am on Thursday 5th when they arrive at their turning point at Fremantle, Western Australia, there wasn’t much time to enjoy the scenery or the passing kangaroos.
One highlight that boosted spirits during the long drive was the welcome party at Morree by the local Dialysis group who had a sneak peak at the Kidney Kamper prototype as well. They were thrilled will what they saw and we almost ended up with a stowaway.
