Tracey and John Noonan have travelled all over Australia in their 4WD including some very challenging locations. When children came along this didn't stop them going to the deserts and other god-forsaken places. This book is about how to travel in Australia (and ultimately anywhere) including the outback and the deserts with children on board. It's about being self-contained and self-sufficient on the road without having to tow a campervan or trailer, but being very safe and comfortable at the same time.
Also described are various inventions that John has come up with including a camping shower, a fold-out kitchen, and a winch anchor.
John has traveled to most parts of Australia and New Zealand with his wife Tracey and two daughters Taylor and Jacqui. He backpacked through South East Asia and the USA for a year and also ran a 4WD Tourist operation in Kakadu National Park in northern Australia. In 2005 they all went on a six month tour of Western Europe in a campervan. The rest of the time John works in the IT industry as a Project Manager, having clocked up 15 years at IBM Australiaread more
