Oil Changes: Our Road Trip Near-Miss

Oil Changes: Our Road Trip Near-Miss
I should probably be more embarrassed to admit this, but during the six years I held both a valid driver’s licences and a working vehicle (affectionately named White Fire, in case you care), I never actually checked, changed or gave more than a passing thought to the oil.

Soaking Up Sydney

Soaking Up Sydney
When the weather gods deliver a day as brilliant as the one we recently had in Sydney–the last major city on our RTW route–it would be foolish not to spring out of bed and make the most of it. Well, the Lost Girls don’t exactly “spring,” but we did manage to zip out the...
