Air Fryer Pancakes

This morning I woke up and felt like pancakes, but I couldn't be bothered with frying pans or flipping them, so I had an idea. An idea that turned out to be genius! Why not make them in the air fryer? Here is the result. An easy way to make pancakes. Happy days!...

Let’s hit it! 🙌🏼 This time next week we will be heading south to start our adventures as full time travellers.
It’s been a long, hard and very frustrating two years and we want to thank everyone for sticking by us 🙏🏼

We’ve had to pull back, regather and reassess absolutely everything to make this all happen!

Our original date of full time travel was meant to be mid-late next year! So we’ve certainly sped things up 😅

We want to apologise for the lack of posts, YouTube videos, blogs, travel destinations and all the other fun stuff you no doubt followed us for in the first place - but we promise things will be up and back to better then ever before very soon! 😁

It’s been a mammoth effort from everyone involved in this Chev build and we can’t wait to get out there and show it off! The big ‘reveal’ will be happening tomorrow at the @blackbeartyres_australia shindig - so be sure to make the effort to get over there to Blackbear Tyres HQ and say g’day not only to us but to all the other legends who will be there. 👋🏼

Bring on the next adventure! 😁👊🏼

Family fun in the sun! ☀️💦
Our travel journey started many years ago with our (3 younger) kids traipsing all over the countryside with us - they loved it and we loved having them with us!
These days they’re older, and 2 of them already have jobs and all three are working hard at school to hit goals they’ve set. We are so proud of these kids and will miss them terribly when we go. But - we’re already planning their first flights to visit us in Tassie - and we will be back up in Brissy in March for the the Chev to be on display at the National 4x4 Show. 🥰 They’ll be flying to us and we’ll be flying back to them ✈️

We are so blessed to have such great kids who are our number one supporters when it comes to us following our dreams - and allowing them to follow theirs.
Who knows, one day when they’re older they might buy their own 4x4’s and join us on the road! 😁👊🏼

Today we have been videoing and photographing Chris’s sisters wedding. 📹♥️
It wasn’t until right before we came into the reception that I realised we didn’t have a single shot of us! So ... we snapped this one 💋 📸
We don’t scrub up too bad for a couple of bums in a caravan 😅
What do you think?

This of one of the last pics you’ll see of the Chev bone stock standard! We’ve been waiting patiently for all the parts and accessories to arrive so we can build it all in one hit 👊🏼
The ultimate @gcitraytec canopy will be fitted over the next couple of weeks complete with a killer 300AH lithium battery system from Enerdrive and full slide out kitchen with Dometic fridge, microwave, hot water system, double induction cooktop and we’ve even squeezed a soda stream into the pull out pantry!
After the canopy is finished, it’s straight to Mikes Shock Shop to pick up the 6 ½ in super lift and custom built King Off Road Racing shocks. This will all be installed by the legends at SNC Automotive. Then we head up to The Bump Shop to drop off the flares for painting.
Race Wheels Australia have 6 x 605 NV Method Race Wheels and 37x13.5 Black Bear Tyres will be arriving on the 5th of November. The Gen 3 tent, 270 Shadow Awning and Shower Cube from Alucab will be arriving soon after. Yakima will have the Lock ‘n’ Load Platform ready to rock and Lazer Lamp will be doing the lighting. Wait until you see this gear! It’s brand new to Australia.
Rhino 4x4 are working on the first Silverado 2500 front bar complete with 1200lb front winch which should be ready mid-February. We have the 1200lb rear winch as well that’s being fitted by Traytec.
Of course the smaller items like GME radio, Cell-fi Go and a few other goodies will be installed in Tassie where we will be seeing out the Summer. 🤙🏼

Bring on the ULTIMATE TOURER!! 😁😁😁

It’s our anniversary! 🍾I can hardly believe it’s been 10 years since this hunka spunk rolled into my drive in his big black Hilux (day car) and took me to Queen Mary Falls for our ‘day date’ then changed into his Chrysler wagon (night car) and took me to Benihanas on the Gold Coast (now Misono) for our first ‘night date’ ... aaahhh ... he had me at hello (with the muscly tattood arm hanging out the window of the big black Hilux)😉

A huge thank you to Andy and Candy and the awesome crew here at the @big4goldcoast for the gorgeous flowers, champagne and platter! 🍾💐😁👌🏼

You may have noticed that things have been a little quiet on the ‘socials’ for us lately … and we’d love to explain why!

For a long time, we’ve dreamed of travelling Australia full-time. To make that dream a reality we’ve been working hard behind the scenes over the past years to put things in place to support us as we do what we love best. Neither of us wanted to do short trips here and there forever, although we’ve loved doing that, so we’ve worked together consistently to set ourselves up for comfortable full-time travel.

We’ve both modified our businesses to work while we are on the road; our videography and photography businesses are up and running and we’re even doing some consultancy work! And we are excited to have partnered with some amazing people who make it possible for us to do what we do and support us in promoting this lifestyle and encouraging everyone to get out there and enjoy Australia!

Initially our plan was to head off towards the end of next year, but that was before Covid! It just flipped our ‘old’ lives and businesses (we both run our own) upside down so that it made perfect sense not to wait to start living our dream. Once the decision was made, we took a deep breath and made it happen. Within the last few months we sold everything – except for what we need in the caravan. Tomorrow we hand over the keys to the house that’s been home for the last few years and in a few days my car goes. The Chev isn’t finished yet —because of Covid—so we are hanging out here at the Gold Coast Holiday Park until that happens towards the end of November. Then our first ‘stop’ will be Tassie!

Reality hasn’t really hit yet – although we’ve spent 6 days in the van already, we’ve done that before. But unlike before, now and then Chris looks at me with a smile in his eyes (that I can tell is radiating from his soul!) and says ‘Babe - we are full time! We don’t have to pack up and go home.’ I nod and think to myself. ‘Too right. This is home.’

We want to thank everyone who has believed in us and those amazing people who we have partnered with to help make our dream become reality. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Who’s scared of snakes? 🐍 This little (aka:HUGE) beauty had just eaten a ladies chicken (see the bump in its belly) so she’d put it in her boot and driven it far far away - which happened to be here where we were! A bit of a blast from the past for #flashbackfriday 😁👍🏼

Smile!! 😀Why? I’m sure we can all think of a few reasons to be happy. I know I can! 🤗

Every morning before I get out of bed I spend a few moments setting my intentions for the day and thinking of 3 things I’m grateful for 🙏🏼
Starting the day with an attitude of gratitude can really impact what kind of day I have and what energy radiates from me. Try it and see! 😁

We’ve just posted a little YouTube video explaining what lithium battery system we use (@enerdrive_australia), how we use it and why we love it 😁

You’ll find the link to our YouTube in our bio. If you like what you see, help us out by liking the video and leaving a comment or asking any questions you might have! Subscribe to our channel to be notified whenever we share a new video 👍🏼

This video is an overview of the Enerdrive Lithium Battery System that we run in our Titanium Southern Star Hardcore caravan that we think is perfect for caravanning and camping 👌🏼

⚡️☕️ We love getting off-grid and still having all the luxuries of being connected to power; hair dryer, straightener, coffee machine, induction cook top, air fryer, Thermomix and even air conditioning/heating … all with no power connected to the van?
Yes please 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

How do we do this? With a full off-grid Enerdrive Lithium Battery system which we have in both our caravan and will have in the Chev. We also have the Simarine Digital Monitoring System (in both). 📹 This video will show you what we use and how 🙌🏼

Beach walks are the best! 👣😃

Who else takes off for hours at a time and just explores and walks for aaaaaages? 🤚🏼

I was alone for most of the 4km but did see a young family splashing in the shallows, a few people fishing and JetSki out on the water 🥰🐚 🎣 🏖 🧢🦅🐢🦀🌴

Where do you like to walk? Beach, bush, the countryside ... or like me - anywhere! 🤷🏼‍♀️🤪

We’ve spent 4 days camped here in paradise (Burrum Heads on our friends beach front property) and are not looking forward to packing up and heading home tomorrow!

We are counting down the days until we don’t ever have to pack up and head home 😁🤙🏼

Hands up for those who were lucky enough to soak up the sun this weekend! 🔆🤚🏼
Two hands up for those who jumped into the salt water 🌊🤚🏼🤚🏼
Three hands up for those who did it in their own private oasis 🤚🏼🤚🏼🤚🏼
Thanks a million to our mates for letting us crash their property for these 5 days (see our van up on the beach behind us 😍)
You know who you are! Love you guys. Can’t wait to get the crew together for the next one 🔥😁

Remember ... this place is available for purchase! Yep. 75 acres of paradise could be all yours for 4 million. The only clause is that you let us stay here! 😅

Home for the next 5 (or so) days is this stunning 75 acre (private) property with absolute beach frontage near Burrum Heads (QLD)!

It’s incredible 😍😍😍 I cant wait to see this window view when the tide comes in! It was up last night but has gone back down again. 🌊

It’s also for sale. Yep. If you’ve got a spare $4 million it’s all yours. (As long as you let us camp here! 😅)

What a gem of a spot! Chris found this A-grade campground on Wikicamps and it’s a ripper 🤙🏼

We drove in and thought ‘wow’ ... actually, I think we said it out loud more than once!😀

Lake Cressbrook Campground (near Crows Nest, Qld) for the win! 😁🔥👌🏼

This is the closest we’ll get to NSW for a while! The Keetah Bridge over the Dumaresq River. (I think it’s heritage listed or historic 🤔)
In this pic we are literally sitting on the border ... the bridge is blocked off to cars but we parked up in Qld and went for a wander. We were planning on camping here but the campsite was on the wrong side of the border 😓It’s a gorgeous spot! One day ... 👊🏼

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this one that Chris snapped sums up our entire weekend at the Albins ARB Goondiwindi 400.

The track is brutally rough and dusty as hell. It’s an unforgiving 400km course of winding dirt (and sometimes muddy) terrain completed over 2 days and 3 races. Prologue, Top 10 shootout and race 1 Saturday and 2 races Sunday.

Watching this team pull together to get the car on (and back on) the track not once, but three times was impressive and left us feeling the remarkable comraderie between them.

This was Matt Baker (@theexplorelife) and Mikes (@mikesshockshop) first time teaming up - and it was great to watch.

It was just devastating to see their chances at winning shattered in 3 out of the 4 races. Without these mechanical failures they would have been on the podium for sure! 🏆

In prologue a collapsed ball joint caused the front right wheel to fly off (pictured here), in race one they threw a belt, managed to get it back on and finish the race.

Race two left the biggest smile I’ve seen on Mick’s face for a while after they set the quickest lap time for their class only to have the same wheel break free again at 130km/h in the third and final race of the weekend.

As spectators/supporters/team members/mates we went from excitement, pride and OMG YESSS!!! To ... ‘he’s taking longer than usual ... what’s happened? Oh no’ on more than one occasion.

And while things didn’t go as planned, I know everyone had a great time and we are all so proud of Mike and Matt and all the spanner boys. What a team. 👊🏼

Until the next round at St George 🍻

Dust storm? No worries! Bring it Goondiwindi - we’re ready!😁👌🏼

After a 9 hour journey from Brissy (no, that’s not a typo! Chris filled the (diesel) tank with unleaded and we had to get a tow truck to take it back in to Millmeran ... I spent 5 hours in the van on the side of the highway! 🤦🏼‍♀️)

We are now camped at the Goondiwindi Showgrounds for the Albins ARB Goondiwindi 400 off road racing 👍🏼

It’s been epic catching up with everyone at scrutineering tonight - can’t wait to see these cars on the track! 👊🏼

Another great little spot we found on @wikicamps 😁

Point Pure Lookout in Brooyar State Forest (in the Mary Valley north-west of Gympie) delivered epic views and insane hairdo’s. Let’s just say it was a little bit windy today 💨😅

A short 300m walk leads to an epic lookout at the top of sandstone cliffs. The breathtaking views of the hoop pine plantation and mature rainforest make it pretty speccy! You can see Glastonbury Creek winding through the farmland ... and all around the place you’ll find abseiling points.

Now that we are here, we think this could be the place that our neighbours were telling us about! ‘An great spot for rock climbing/abseiling with epic campsites just behind Gympie’. And well, this seems to be just that! 😁👌🏼

📍Brooyar is 20 minutes north-west of Gympie or two and a half hours drive north of Brisbane.

Another snap of The Muntapa Tunnel ... we went in, over and around but only part way through. The middle is closed off to protect a bat colony! 🦇

This is a heritage-listed tunnel that runs from Narko-Nutgrove Road, Highgrove through to Nutgrove, both in the Toowoomba Region of Queensland. It was built from 1910 to 1913 by Queensland Railways and added to the Queensland Heritage Register in May 2007.

It’s also plenty of fun to explore 😁👌🏼

This was a cool little adventure we went on 😁

Chris found the Muntapa Tunnel on Wikicamps - we punched it into maps and off we went!

The tunnel is Queensland’s longest straight railway tunnel at 287m long. It sits at 640m above sea level, is the only tunnel that crossed between the inland and coastal sides of the Great Dividing Range, and the only one that crossed the Range summit.

You can’t actually walk right through the tunnels as you’ll come across some big silver gates/fences about 30m in. These are there to protect an existing colony of bent winged bats. I was happy to not disturb the critters with our presence, but I think one or two might have been surprised with the cooees we let rip through the tunnel! I mean, how could we not?

It’s not a busy ‘tourist attraction’ and we were the only ones there while we were exploring although a couple left as we arrived and a family arrived as we left.

There are interpretive signs dotted around revealing a pretty interesting history.

Now closed, the line was originally constructed to support small-scale agriculture in the area and to provide access to timber reserves at Blackbutt and Nanango.

It was situated on the branch line that opened from Oakey to Cooyar in 1913 and closed in 1964.

Muntapa Tunnel serves as a reminder of the region's pioneering days and the important role railways played in developing the area.

If you wander around up top you will see what’s left of the campsite where the workers and their families once lived. As it was a portable, not much is there but you can see what used to be a bakery and even the footings of the Muntapa Camp School.

For what was just a little dot on the map, this place really came to life as we read and explored our way around.

They say this week it’s eyes up for the best views! Who loves a good meteor showering? 🤚🏼✨😁
We had a pretty speccy view of the night sky here and saw about 7 shooting stars (and what may have been a bit of a showering) Butttt ... apparently we can expect to see the greatest number of meteors during the shower's peak on the morning of August 12 (tonight/tomorrow).
Whoot! Wonder if I’ll be keen to get up and drive somewhere dark tonight 🤨 I’m guessing not 😅
Wish we were still out in the van! Oh well ... at least we had last night ✨🤙🏼
And ... we are back on the road Fri- Sun. Then home to drop the kids off then back out until Tuesday! They say the meteors can be seen leading up to and after so maybe we’ll catch a few strays Sunday/Monday night 🤞🏼

Waking up to this was pretty special! The sun peeking over the horizon, the low-lying mist and that windmill just set it off. 😁👌🏼

I can’t begin to describe how perfect tonight is! Well, I’ll give it a shot ... the (almost) full moon just peeked out from behind a smattering of clouds that are suspended in the deep blue sky casting a milky light across Mt Beerwah that is piercing the skyline as I look to my left. 🌕 ⛰

I’m now kicking back in the camp chair - blanket over my legs, beanie on and feet up, warming myself by the fire. Yes - I may have just spent half an hour feeding sticks into the campfire!

To my right Chris is making fun of my pyromaniac tendencies 🔥😅

Just behind the silhouette that the fire has created from my boots is our caravan that has multi coloured lights illuminating the grass below as they flash in time to the Aussie Country tunes that are keeping my toes tapping. 🤠 🎶

Inside, the gas heater is getting the van ready for when our eyelids get heavy and we decided to curl up in our super comfy bed 🥰

Ohhhh ... and the fact that it’s a Monday night is just awesome 👌🏼

When was your last perfect night? 🤙🏼

Good morning from Fressingfield ... 🌿🎶🐦☀️

Fressingfield is a lovely Youcamp just under 2 hours from Brissy (QLD) in the Moreton Bay Region near Mount Mee and at just $16 a night (including firewood and a drop loo if you need it) ... we think it’s a bit special ☺️👌🏼
