Bev, 63, and Bob, 66, are what are being called "grey nomads" retirees who pack up to travel, sometimes for years on end, sometimes selling their homes. Outback roads are full of them.
The blue-rinse adventurers move around with an economic freedom the envy of any 20-year-old. According to the Caravan Industry Association, there are up to 15,000 caravans doing a round-Australia trek at any one time 70 per cent of them with early retirees.
