It was 1954, I had just turned 21 and completed my nursing degree. I was ready for an adventure and wanting to see more of Australia, I decided to follow in my dad’s footsteps, who once embarked on a road trip with a friend in a T-Model Ford, covering Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia. So off I went in a Holden Ute, armed with basic knowledge on mechanics and my two best mates.
