Big trip coming up

Its been a while since Ive been able to get away on a decent trip away from home. End of August towing up boat up north and heading to an offshore island (Vanderlin island) for a few weeks. Its one of those islands with all the mod cons of nothing!!!!!...take your own water, food and fuel and hope the crocs and sharks don't eat you when you swim to shore after anchoring the boat. Its one of those drives where you tend to say never again but after a few days back home feel ready to go again. Its about 4400km each way which is a solid 4 days of driving, then 90km offshore to the northern end of the island. The fishing can be hit or miss depending on the weather but remoteness makes up for any lack of fishing. Im pretty excited given the last two were canceled due to covid restrictions.

Hopefully get another trip in before that one to the southern end of the Barrier reef around the easter hols. This one is only half the distance but again remote offshore island living where you take all supplies (Lady Musgrave island). Not quite as exciting because other people are able to share the island for camping (maximum of 20) .

Sorry to disappoint, there will be no pot noodles coming on either trip.

Sounds like an adventure! Good luck 👍

 

P.S. if @JonC were going, I'm sure he'd find somewhere in his bikini to smuggle a pot or two 😉

Now that would be the ultimate, he could try some exotic pot noodles from here.
