I feel for you Justin!
I'm very self sufficient anywhere in the outback.You know Australia is just about as big as the US and 90% of the population live on the coast,so there'* allot of millage to be clocked in this country.When I leave for a camping trip I inform my relatives and tell them exactly where Im going and leave sometimes 3to4 months at a time.
Cheers mate
