With just 3 weeks to go before we leave, the preparations for our trip are well under way. We had a garage sale today as part of the national Garage Sale Trail. Thank you to everyone who came by and who left with armloads of our goods that we are thrilled have found new homes.

On the media front, Meg was interviewed by the lovely Megan Spencer today on ABC radio. You can read the blogpost here and listen to the full interview here.


  1. Congratulations on the successful pozible campaign. I am honoured to be one of the many who helped you achieve your goal.
    Wow only 3 weeks til you set off, I'm looking forward to hearing all your updates along the way.

  2. Congratulations with your success with the Pozible campaign, guys. Crowdfunding is where it's at! Sure, it's not precisely 'gifting' rather a means of trade - their pledge for something nice in return - but hey, it sure beats the monetary system. It's so positive.

    Best of luck with your weeks of prep.
