Where it all began
In 2010 Haydn had this crazy idea of building a plane. We discovered that lots of people had done it before us, so if they could do it, there is no reason why we couldn’t give it a go. We ordered the parts from America and a few weeks later they turned up. Living in a fairly small house with no garage or shed, the lounge room became the perfect place to build the plane. We ripped up the carpet, drilled a hole in the floor for the air compressor, set up the tools and building commenced.
We quickly discovered that this was going to be a much bigger project than we could have ever imagined, and far more difficult than it originally looked… but with a little help, much persistence, hard work, late nights, blood, sweat, and tears the project was completed 3.5 years later.
Turning dreams into reality
With access to such a practical means of transport we dreamt of traveling to lots of places and doing lots of things, but since the plane was completed, it has spent most of its life in a hanger, apart from the odd trip here and there.
Life gets in the way. We were running our own business, working long days, nights and sometimes weekends. We were trapped in the rat race. In the middle of 2015, we decided it was time to find a way to achieve our dream of travel, and that is where our ‘Australian Adventure’ began.
Our plan is to travel to as many places as we can in every state and territory of Australia, and experience as much as we can, of what this country has to offer.
We hope that what we share will inspire you to travel and explore this beautiful country and that you too can achieve your dreams and not get caught in the rat race of life.
