Arrive In Perth Western Australia 2021

Arrive In Perth Western Australia 2021: This post is about how the date was decided.

Susan Lewis, Off on Adventures
Strange as it may seem it's truly a terrific feeling to share this decision along with all of its consequences. The ride over the next fifteen months is an exploration in itself. Let me share with you what actually occurred this morning. Come on in to this shock decision that has made a defining moment again in life.

Oh My I've done it now. 

It remains to be seen how this 'decisions frenzy' will play out in Perth, Western Australia 2021.

Have just gone onto plus1travel scrolled down to the bottom of the page and went... oh.  Promptly added some fly out and return dates.  Then went "Perth. Western Australia."

Celebration have just converged

And sat here looking at the dates.  Middle of 2021.  That will be the thirth-year [ and a few months] after the truck plowed into the vehicle I was driving.

Just this morning came the realization that the student loan will have finished about halfway through the year of 2021.

It looks like that specific two weeks away will be much appreciated.  Why? Because I've already hung my hat on that particular date.
Time to go back to Perth, Western Australia to see the massive gardens again
One of Perth's many gardens had this massive Aloe plant

Just the date of arrival has been decided

Most important I need a date to hang my implementation strategy trajectory celebration upon.

Unless I drive there which will take about five months.  The important thing is there is a date organized.  Should I fly it means coming back to Victoria straightaway afterward.

Should I drive the agenda is highly flexible.

Arrival in Perth

By plane:I will arrive in Perth Western Australia with the equivalent of one lightly packed backpack and that is it.
By vehicle: depends who is with me. One vehicle or one vehicle and trailer.

I have a suspicion I will be really proficient at using the trailer by the time of arrival.

Over the next few articles in this series the explorations of how to get to Perth will be shared.  At this moment the sneaking suspicion is that the vehicle and trailer will be going out for a drive one day.

Australia is a huge place so the intention is re the arrival back is when, and if, I do.

Take That Stand For The Life You Need To Create


Seriously how to become a blogger, near on full-time, took time to just workout. 

Counterbalance 'that need' with the passion behind delivering to people just what, and where, the Autism communication and behaviour management of other people occurred, and does occur in the future is an ongoing procedure.  Put me into a situation of arguments and the dreaded freeze creeps in.

To travel the world comes as an over sixty-year-old means to take the time to explore the continental shelf that I find myself on.  Australia.

 The posts are not about social media.  Nor are they about the advantages or disadvantages of social networking with a tight schedule.

The first steps for travel around Australia have started.

There are three projects
A healthy body [Physical Existance], mind [Mental Experience] and spirit [Meta Physical].
Okay, make that four: everyday assets [Investments]

The 4x4 Landrover Discovery, to say the least, is a few years old.  As an auspicious start, that to me means taking the time to sit down and update every hose and part therein before those parts become needed in a hurry.

So on the record so far there has been

  • an air filter
  • filter -oil spin on
  • 10w40 ss 2x 5ltr
  • P7 Brass hose joiner
  • worn drive s/s 9mm 16-27mm
  • 3/4 Pushlok Black Hose
One thing that was disturbing was that the mechanic found two 'clean-cut slices' on the petrol overflow tube. At the other end near the wall, there was a ... well, let's call this area 'fair wear and tear. " until the slashes were found.

That relentless gut feeling of something was not right there... It's times like this one really starts to reconsider the advisability of continuing to stay in the area where you have been for many years.

In a few weeks time, the next practical step is to allow time for the mechanic to meticulously create a shopping list.  Then sit with him as a step-by-step affordable budget is sorted out. As it was he showed me a little bulge within a hose that if there be excessive long trips in the meantime ....

And there is more to come before this older 'lady of the road' is ready for the road.

Meanwhile to master the clearance and removal of clutter has been packed with productivity.  Just one rubbish bin top-up every two weeks.  The two weeks is because the appropriate rubbish bins are collected here every two weeks.

The practical side is the relentless removal of this one at a time clearance has gone through to other things.  Like the clothes that used to fit me are nearing the 'Oh heck it is falling downstage'.    I mention this as with less material per clothing article there is more room to store something else.

That's me.  Mums also coming along. So she too is doing the same.

Currently, the dogs [ seventeen-years old] practically claim that spare space for themselves.

At the beginning of this post, you will have read about the desire to become a full-time blogger. To travel Australia is a matter of a person literally 'expecting nothing', but being prepared for everything. 

No matter what take that growth trajectory that will put you there. Don't hold back on yourself. Before, during and even after that trips section Take the time to explore. 

Move from one place to the next. Find out about that place. Where the locals know off.  People talk on the road.  In times of dire decision [ turn left or right] simply toss a coin. Go, if need be, the other way!

Challenge your resourceful self today.

Gormandale, a part of the Strzelecki Ranges



As the organizational guru [ and the one with the vehicle] there are times when my mother and I venture out.  The love of the outdoors, the greens of fields, bush life and country people are a huge attraction

We no longer have children to organize our daily lives around. Therefore when the opportunity comes to combine both business and pleasure we slot it into the activities and off we go.

Each one of us has our own life.  

However, the trips away from our homes are made fun with exploring the places either one of us has passed through, stayed for a few hours or managed to stay overnight at.

Gormandale has been all these things. 
This summer has been drastic all around Victoria.  The eight months of fires have altered much of the peoples thinking patterns.  Many blame things on climatic changes.   Some have seen these things happen before.  The recovery rates in people's minds push through from the community infrastructure.

Let's look at Gormandale

Gormandale lies in the Merrimans Creek Valley area.  Right amongst the rural community that has abundant native flora and fauna. 

In 2020 an emergency warning came through the Vic Emergency Incidents and Warnings site.  The fire warning was then listed as small.

Years ago when Gormadale was visited there were such prolific flora and fauna everywhere.

The vineyards spread out gloriously.

20 minutes away the Tarra Bulga National Park was there to be enjoyed.  A few friends and I took my mum with us.  Rather than leave her behind out came the scooter. Then we reassembled the scooter pathways were chosen.

The bushwalking and bird watching went at a smooth pace.

In Gormanadale the community house 

The management committee has set out to help people recognize their personal spaces with a woodwork shed and associated community garden.

Great variety of workshops and classes aligned with the interests of people in the community.

Active community with three activities just in March alone.

  • Homemade Zucchini Pickles workshop
  • Social Soap Makers reunite
  • Garden Working bee
Previous interests shown are
  • The Dividing and repotting of Orchids
  • Cookie Bake and take
  • Kids movie night
  • Car Boot sale
  • Chainsaw training and assessment
  • Kids disco
  • Fitness class
  • China Painting
  • Welcome breakfast
  • Christmas wreath making
  • Seniors group
  • Library service
  • Bees Wax Wraps and Candles Workshop

Gormandale is here.

Southeast of Traralgon  Gormandale lies past Loy Yang.  Further south of Gormandale is Willung South and then Carrajung
