Dylan constantly soaks in everything around him.... from scenery and new faces to history and facts about his locations. He's our little bookworm and loves to immerse himself in various genres! Dylan loves to seek out hills and sand dunes to sprint up and roll back down; waterholes he can flip, jump and plunge into and enjoys fishing from the tinnie along with being first to try out dads rope swings. One of the funniest, most caring and protective big brothers you'll ever meet!

The youngest of our family, and we think the most mischievous as well!

Blayke, 16 & Locky, 14.
Being children of a separated family unfortunately means the older boys aren't able to join us on our trip full time. They hope to spend as much time experiencing new places as possible during our travels. One in particular is very competitive when it comes to his fishing… (can you guess which one?) and can often be found trying to steal the spot of whoever is getting the most hooks when they go to rebait, hahaha! The other loves helping out with cooking on the Barbie, and is a pro at making all the kids ‘coffees’ in the mornings (hot milos!). We will definitely have a piece of us missing whilst on the road, but are grateful for the wonderful technology at our fingertips these days which will allow us to stay in contact, and for them to feel a part of it all.
Place they can’t wait to visit: "Any decent fishing area in Northern Territory or Western Australia"!
