Onward, ever onward......

3rd March 2019
Car is in Sydney, so..........
Since Gidget is currently in Sydney, I don't have any photos or anything car related to tell you.    But the break has given me time to think about other things, and with the shipping date now only 3 weeks away, the whole event has suddenly become very much more real and imminent to both of us.   Despite having known about it all for over 2 years, the reality of the terrible roads, the fragility of older cars, and the sleep deprivation we will face while we are on the road has suddenly taken on a new urgency in our minds.
How will we cope with it all ?   I guess there is only one way to find out !!

I found this the other day and thought it was partiicularly apt, given our adventure over the coming months. 
"Onward, ever onward ............."

We must pursue our endless quest.
Our destination is unknown
Although the path is overgrown
We have no choice - we must go on.

We’re not allowed to stop and rest
We have to journey on alone.
We have no choice we must go on
although the path is overgrown.

It’s up to us to do our best
until our journeying is done.
Although the path is overgrown
We have no choice we must go on..

Perhaps in time we’ll pass the test
Show we could do it on our own.
We have no choice we must go on
Although the path is overgrown.

Each man must pursue his own quest
It’s something he must do alone.
Although the path is overgrown
There is no choice you must go on.
