Bucky Diary Feb 2019

Looks like our van Bucky is spending the fourth week at home, again.  I have completed the side fence and installed security cameras at  home. Guess we can watch our grown up family and my crazy guard dog - Ollie, if we get bored on the road - Not!.  Big Bucky is watching you.

Got a manual coffee maker for the serious coffee drinker (Sara).  As wife likes the cream and this one takes nespresso capsules and you pump it manually to get the correct 8 bar pressure.  Cost around $59, but when your in the outback it is priceless to have a good coffee. If your interested in one, this is where I got mine:

Hopefully weekly cost will be cheaper once we get on the road, as I have budgeted for $250 per week.

In the meantime I will continue to download my Spotify Offline Road trip songs and Netflix offline Movies.  Yes I have got 'Country Road'

Another Big expense.  Rusty got his dental work done and it cost $1000.  So we are at home waiting for him to pickup.  Guess it's a travelling expense as we want him to be healthy, live long and not have bad breath in such close quarters.
