MODERN DAY GOLD PROSPECTORS TRAVEL IN COMFORT

MODERN DAY GOLD PROSPECTORS TRAVEL IN COMFORT

A CUMMINS ISB 210 CM 550 powers this beautiful 2004 Roadmaster Motorhome. I spoke today with owners John and Julie Simpson.  “When we first bought the motorhome, we did a lot of touristy things, but we fell in love with prospecting. It gets you in like poker machines do. We have found lots of small nuggets, and the search is still on! “
“We’ve been travelling since 2004. We live at Mount Tamborine, and haven’t travelled much in the last 18 months as we’ve been building a house, but on June 4th we are heading over to WA.

“We have had a lot of fun prospecting for gold in WA, Victoria and now in Queensland near Warwick. This trip we will have our little 7 year old grandson with us, so wife Julie will be the school teacher too.

We should have some lovely weather and will be gone for 4 months. We will head to Marble Bar in the north and work our way south to Horizontal Fall, Derby, Sandstone, Leinster and Leonora. Kalgoorlie will be a base for a while. I don’t take the Roadmaster on dirt roads, so we will use a little four wheel drive we tow to get around. “

“Since we bought the Motorhome at 47,000 kms, we’ve done a lot of work on it, and it’s a lovely set up now, with bedroom, separate shower and all the comforts. We’ve got leather swivel chairs, a satellite dish on the roof, three TVs, a bar fridge and an outside washing machine and drier. “

“I came to Torquepower after a recommendation from Swagman. It wasn’t driving well and we’ve identified a fuel pump issue. I will always bring my Motorhome to Justin at Torquepower because the service is spot on. I believe in using word of mouth recommendations when I’m happy with a company, and the Torquepower team do a top job. “
