OUR BIG LAP PACKING LIST

This is by no means an exhaustive list*, but it is many of the things we acquired during the planning for OUR BIG LAP.

NB: Given the size of our van we understand there will be some places where we simply will not be able to tow into and out of, so with this in mind, and with a week-long camping adventure booked for Fraser Island, we have set ourselves up to be able to head off for a few days camping (without our van) whenever the need arises. This is reflected in some of the items we will be travelling with.
