2:10 The Motorhome - Helen Donoghue - 100 thousand kilometers, two countries, 1400 towns visited over 30 months, and all in a 7.3 metre motorhome. This is the adventure of Garry and Helen Donoghue. When they retired, they decided to buy an RV and travel around New Zealand and Australia. They rented out their family home, used that income to pay for petrol, and set off to see our part of the world. Along the way, they kept meticulous records about every museum, every campground, every town they visited.  The result is a soon to be published book called Bust Out  that is a "how to guide" for anyone considering becoming a grey nomad.
