56-year-old ironman is lapping Australia
THEY'RE grey nomads, but not as you know them.
Husband and wife team, Steve Goble and Miranda Free, are camping their way around Australia.
While Miranda paints landscapes at each of their campsites, Steve rides ahead on his bicycle, braving the traffic and the heat.
Travelling around 100km each day, they stayed overnight in Dalby on Tuesday, and plan to pass Roma today.
Leaving Perth on November 30 last year, Steve has just clocked up 10,000 kilometres cycling through Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and NSW.
He is about to embark on the northern Australian leg heading through inland Qld to the Northern Territory.
Steve is 56 years old.
Meanwhile, Miranda has produced around 100 artworks documenting the landscape wherever they stay. She uses oils, acrylics, watercolour, pen and ink and pastels to create her impressionistic and recognisable landscapes. She sells postcards of her works as they travel to support both themselves and the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, which they are supporting.
Out on the road you can't miss them: they are living out of a bright yellow teardrop caravan just big enough for a double bed and small kitchen out the back.
They are at the Criterion here in Dalby tonight, then they will be hitting the road again.
Steve said he never wanted to get a "dorky" mirror on his helmet, but with a camera already perched on top of his head he thought it wouldn't hurt.
