My name’s Lisa and I’m houseless not homeless. My Hilux is my house and Australia is my back yard. So jump in the passenger seat and strap yourself in. You and I are going for an adventure! It won’t always be easy. I prefer to dodge ‘traffic’ and take remote dirt roads which means I may not see a fellow human for a few days. I get bogged, wake up with cattle in my camp, wreck my tyres, have things fall off the Hilux, and not shower for a couple of days, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I’ve travelled and worked all over Australia at one time or another, but now I’m doing it full-time, stopping occasionally to work to fund the next few months on the road. I also fill book orders for my book The Bottom Drawer Book: an after death action plan.It’s a funky funeral planning guide. Sure it sounds dark, but it’s so important to get organised ahead of time. It’s a colourful and informative read. So is my blog about death and dying: a quirky yet practical look at the inevitable. And this blog too.
I got serious about adventuring four years ago when I accepted a secondment to the Northern Territory. I decided to quit full-time work the following year. 2018 has been a fun year, and my 50th! I left Brisbane in mid-Feb and have spent time in the Kimberley, via Kangaroo Island, Kalgoorlie, Esperance, Perth, Birdsville, Tennant Creek, Top Springs, Derby, Broome and Darwin. Next stop: Tamworth for the Country Music Festival!
Diesel isn’t cheap so I live pretty frugally on the road. Remote camping is my happy place. Caravan parks aren’t for me: give me a bush camp and an open air shower any day!
So let’s go. I didn’t sell everything I own for nothing. Adventures await!
