This is our 100th Blog Post! I can’t believe we have written that many posts or even more amazing that you are all still reading our rubbish hehehehe!
I really enjoy writing our blog and even though I am so far behind I intend to keep going and finish the adventures of our trip off and then hopefully share our camping escapades up here in Far North Queensland, when mango/avocado packing season finishes and life settles down a little again! We will definitely be well and truly ready for a short camping break away from the farm by then!
To mark our 100th Blog Post, I thought it would be appropriate to use this entry to tell you about our Trip Time Capsule. We decided early on in our trip that before we finished, we would like to bury a time capsule somewhere in the great blue yonder of Oz. There was no set plan for where it should be buried, or when, just that we wanted to plant a treasure box filled with some memories of our trip which had been so long in the planning and would hopefully be a great snapshot of a significant event in the lives of the Fealy Family in 2013. This is how it went down ……………….
We’ve written a post in the past about ‘Why we go camping’ and we hope that even with our change to farm life, we will still continue to get away on some great family camping trips in the coming years – as you know from our previous post, camping is something that is very important to us.
So, the hope then is, that maybe in 25 years time, one of the kids might take their own family away on a camping adventure, or their boyfriend or girlfriend, a sibling adventure, or even just a solo break away, and head off towards where we buried our time capsule. We hope they will remember that we buried it around that area somewhere and ring mum and dad and say “hey Dad, remember that time capsule we buried on our trip around Australia in 2013? What is the exact location for it? We want to have a go at finding it and digging it up!”. Or it may even be that in 10 years time we get a chance to head away and do another big Fealy Family Adventure again and we go searching for it! Or maybe Matt and I will head off as grey nomads in 25 years time when all our babies have left the nest and we will dig it up ourselves!! Who knows, but it is something to look forward to, a little bit of a treaure hunt down the track to locate a small piece of Fealy Family history.
