About Blue Snoopy

Blue Snoopy is a 2018 Adria Altea 402PH Sports Caravan pulled by a 2012 Nissan Navara ST Dual Cab Ute.



Sunday 1 March 09 – Sydney to Bathurst NSW

It seems like ages since our last big trip and we have both been looking forward to this one because we will be meeting a new group of people and it will also give us the opportunity to try out the full potential of the motor home.

We decided to take a couple of days to travel to Parkes as that approach would give us the opportunity to ensure that the motor home was working correctly and also provide a chance to visit Wellington Caves.

As is the case with any trip, leaving our son, daughter-in-law and grandson was painful. Our grandson seemed to understand that Blue Snoopy was going away and to get a farewell kiss or cuddle was virtually impossible.

Bathurst was chosen as the first stop and the trip from Sydney was very easy with little traffic to contend with and zero stress with driving. We stayed at the Big 4 Caravan Park and this provided a suitable venue to commence the tests planned to check the flexibility of the motor home. For the first time we connected to town water and we both enjoyed lengthy showers without the hot water running out. We had problems getting the satellite dish aligned due to trees but our neighbour was more than happy for us to locate the dish on their site where a clear view of the sky was available.

Tea consisted of steak and salad washed down with an excellent bottle of Browns Bros wine. We will carefully need to watch our wine supply and ensure that we carefully manage having sufficient cold bottles in the refrigerator.

We both slept well.
