Getting on the road is exciting, and its all I have wanted to do since June last year! I have had a dream of showing our boys all there is to Australia…..I have had that dream for so long! Its amazing what happens when you have a dream , a vision, and a why. If your why is big enough, strong enough then it will come true. The dream will become a reality yet we still have So Much To Do So Little Time in which to get it all done!
Always So Much To do So Little Time
We have 27 days left to get our family on the road. Only 27 days! That is OK for me, as we are ready. We have the shipping container sorted, we have the clothes sorted (what to take, and what we can store, or what we can give away) and we have an idea of what we will need while travelling! Its the rest of the things that still need to be done with Rose The Lifestyle Challenge Bus! I am amazed with how long everything takes when getting a Motor-home ready. It doesn’t look like it will take that long, but its the smaller things that are so fiddly that take the longest! Do you ever feel like there is So Much To Do So Little Time available?
Here is the list of what needs to still be done!
Two new tyres sorted out
- Brakes re-done
- Put the dash in the bus back together!
- Speedo is in getting serviced
- Front cupboards finished off
- Front Springs re-set
- Cupboards under the lounges to be finished off
- Maybe (if there is time) build a new cupboard in front of the boys bunk-beds for extra storage
- Fix the Roof Racks
- Fix the inside of the boot to make sure its strong enough to carry everything!
Sounds So Easy!
It all sounds so easy yet every job is either a small job, and takes a lot of time, or a big job that still takes a lot of time! Either way we are going to be on the road in 27 days (not that I am counting or anything!) It just seems like a dream, and once it becomes real then I will feel like it was all worth it. David is still pulling some crazy hours…..going to bed way past 12pm every night and getting up way too early just so that it can all be finished. He knows that there is So Much To Do So Little Time left and he is almost running out of steam. Its been over 6 months of crazy hours…..lets hope that once we are on the road, we can have some times of rest!
Someone Needs To Pinch Me!
Once we drive out of our road, and turn either left for south, or right for north….maybe then it will feel like its real. At the moment it feels like Ground Hog Day….where we get up every morning and have the same routine every day! What would be your dream that came true, where you would need someone to pinch you to make sure its true?
