The first leg of the trip was only short, a mere 4 hours driving. I’m staying the night in Townsville with relatives Auntie Marie, Uncle Bill and my cousin’s Timothy and Emily.
I was a bit slow off the start, with a few pre-travel requirements stealing the daylight away from me. At the last minute before I thought I was leaving, I asked my awesome dad to give the car a once over and check the essentials.
