    Episode 6: Interview with Paul Aubin, Inventor of the Bog Out

    Today, we chat with Paul Aubin.  Paul is the inventor, of the ingenious product called the Bog Out.  The Bog Out is a device, which recovers bogged vehicles.  When a vehicle is bogged, you can attach the Bog Out to the front or rear wheels, then attach it to an anchor point.  It uses the torque of your wheels, to pull you out of the bog effortlessly, without the need of expensive winches or other devices.  Not only that, it is lightweight can fit into a small gear bag and can even fit in your glove box so it is always on hand when you need it.
    Paul explains what the lightbulb moment was when he had the idea whilst 4wd in the far north of Queensland.  The bog out has won numerous innovation awards and in the last few years, people from all over the world have been discovering the benefits of the bog out.

    Episode 3: Interview with FRC Ambassador and Full Time Traveller, Keith Thompson

    In this episode, we chat with Keith Thompson.  Keith is the Full Range Camping, on the road ambassador.  Keith joined FRC 7 years ago as our data manager and on the road ambassador.  Keith has been a full time traveller for over 8 years, and with his wife, Frances are travelling all over Australia, experiencing the wonders of grey nomading.  

    In his travels, Keith documents and notes locations he has visited.  He updates listings and adds new listings, that we present in both our app and website.  Keith has been a key asset for Full Range Camping, and he regularly contributes with his well researched and written articles on his experiences whilst travelling.  He has been a wealth of knowledge and you can often find Keith in many of the popular camping groups on Facebook, contributing and assisting people with their questions.
    We caught up with Keith, whilst he was in Bowen, North Queensland, waiting for his caravan fridge to be repaired.  We chatted about where he has been travelling over the last few months and he provides some gems of information on some locations and tips that he has discovered in his 8 years of being on the road.
    We are hoping Keith can be a regular contributor to the podcast, and impart his wealth of knowledge and assistance to all of our listeners.

    Episode 2: Interview with Steele Johnston, Director of Drought Angels Charity - Helping those in need in the Outback

    In this episode, we chat with Steele Johnston, one of the Directors of Drought Angels.    Drought Angels provides a unique service for which it is has become well known within the rural sector.
    In particular, the work they do in assisting farmers and workers of the outback, that have been affected by the ongoing drought and hardship.
    Established in 2014 by Friends Tash and Nicki,  the organisation was born from the need to simply help those in southwestern QLD, after seeing first-hand the heartbreaking struggle of farmers.  Starting from a shed in their backyard, Drought Angels has grown to their own warehouse, where their volunteers reach and assist those in western Queensland, new south wales, Victoria and South Australia.
    Steele is the husband of founding director Tash, and moved into running operations, upon the expansion of Drought Angels.
