We have found our nitch for traveling in our caravan. I retired from secular imployment in 1999 and after one four month holiday travelling to Sydney and back to Cairns , we found things getting a bit mundane. We knew of an organisation called "Mobile Mission Maitanance International", So now we've been REFIRED not RETIRED by doing volentary work for them. Each year we have spent 50-75% of our holidays helping them ,and enjoying it. Its great. Arthur & Dorothy Walmsley
