So this is my first ever blog post. I am not pretending to be an excellent writer, or blogger or journalist because i’m not. Just having a go.
My name is Mitch McCabe and the most important thing in my life are my wife and kids! We love to travel, 4wd, camp, fish, hunt, boating and all things outdoors!
Our travels started off with a humble beginning when we walked into Rays Outdoors and spent $2000! We purchased a tent, sleeping bags and cheap cooking stuff. Now there’s nothing wrong with buying cheaper stuff as long as it performs the job.
We have both always enjoyed anything outdoors from an early age. The first McCabe Mob, (my Mum and Dad and two younger brothers) use to go camping at South West Rocks for the summer school holidays. As we enjoyed camping and the outdoors, we kept investing and upgrading. Loving the outdoors is an investment. As a family of five we are investing in our children’s life, their experiences, their future! You can spend very little or a tonne of cash on life experiences! We are in between I guess.
We have a standard 2013 patrol with snorkel and full ARB alloy roof cage. We went with the alloy because you can carry more in the roof. We have a camper trailer and it has done around 20000kms now, including a trip to Fraser Island, up and down the Mid North Coast of Nsw and Outback Queensland.
Here is a picture of the camper at Swr at Xmas with my mum, bro, and pop.
We have big plans in the pipe line with the patrol, like getting a 2 inch lift, duel battery system, steel Bullbar and winch, and some other little mod cons on the inside.
Here is a pic of the patrol beside both of my younger brothers rigs.
So there is a little bit of info to get this blog started. I’ll be trying to check in with new comments and stories see where this ends up! By the way, Mel has input too, she finds all my grammar, spelling and
puncuation punctuation mistakes (hahaha) I’ll see how long it takes her to find that. Mitch
