Today was a hard day and I am sure it won’t be the last but it was definitely a hard one.
We started the day by packing up our relaxing campsite at Lees Reserve and headed over the border to the land of the cockroach!! Alas, we still didn’t see any State of Origin trophies in sight so the drought must still be happening…hehehe
Across the border and we were just going to do a free overnight outside of Collarenebri.
We found the campsite and that’s when it got hard.
Now, most of you know that Phil and I have had a tough few months leading up to this adventure. It has been probably been the toughest of times for us and while we have managed to get on the road, there are still some hard lessons and trials for us ahead.
We put ourselves under so much pressure to get everything right the first time, we don’t give ourselves credit and we end up being not very nice to each other. It’s all about relationships in the end because at the end of the day, we have each other’s company every day and every night for our trip. We have to accept that we will fail, we will stumble and not get everything right.
Setting up camp was incredibly hard because we stopped talking to each other and did our own things and didn’t work as a team. For things to happen, we need to be a team so it was a good lesson for us. It took such a long time to set up and it was like a sauna, the flies are steadily punching you in the face and well, it was shit really.
Afterwards, we walked chessie down by the river and took some time out.
I am incredibly thankful for the amount of time and love Phil and given me in this whole adventure. I wouldn’t be able to do this without him and today was a reminder of why we even thought of doing this crazy thing in the first place. We wouldn’t be able to do this without each other and while it has been and is an incredibly hard change for us, we are determined to get through it together.
