About this eBook
If you're dreaming about packing up and driving around Australia then I've written The Big Lappers Guide Book especially for you.
When it comes to planning your road trip around Australia, The Big Lappers Guide Book is simply the best place to start.
With over 300 information packed pages, this guidebook answers hundreds of questions that aspiring Big Lappers have like:
- How much money will we need?
- How will we finance our trip?
- What if we need to work along the way?
- What sort of vehicle and van/camper do we need?
- How to setup our camp kitchen?
- How do we free camp?
- What remote communications do we need?
- What happens if something goes wrong?
And many many more.
The book is organised into small bite sized chapters (over 200 of them!) in logical order from the very early stages of planning your trip, through to getting everything organised and the actual trip itself.
From personal experience we spent years planning and working towards our own Big Lap and I know that we had endless questions because we wanted to get it right. As a young family it was going to be the experience of our lifetime and we wanted to make the absolute most of it.
I wished I had this book then!
It’s taken me several years and hundreds of hours of research and writing to complete this first edition and I’m proud of the finished product.
To make The Big Lappers Guide Book even more useful I’ve included over 150 web-links to other websites, blog posts, Facebook Groups, products, suppliers, apps and other resources that will help you with your research and planning. I've even created a clever short URL system so that the web-links will never be out of date even if the destination website changes.
Free updates for life!
While this first edition is packed full of of 300 pages of information, this is just the beginning.
Information is changing constantly and we never stop learning so I’ll be updating The Big Lappers Guide Book with the latest information and a new edition EVERY THREE MONTHS.
This is something that could never be done with a printed book and a big advantage of the eBook (PDF) format.
When you buy your copy of The Big Lappers Guide Book you get every update from today onwards, for life.
You can come back to our website at any time in the future, login and download the latest edition of The Big Lappers Guide Book.
We’ll even send you an email every 3 months to let you know when the latest edition is available with a link to take you straight to it.
There’s no ongoing cost or subscription and no need to buy the book again in the future to get the updated version.
I know that a lot of people (us included) spend years planning their Big Lap so I want to make sure that you’ll have the latest info at your fingertips from today until the day you ht the road and even while on the trip itself.
eBook (PDF) Format
We all have our tablets, smart phones and laptops so the time has come to embrace the eBook (PDF) format.
The Big Lappers Guide Book is in PDF format which can be read easily on any digital device which can view a PDF (pretty much everything!)
Whether an eBook (PDF) is 50 pages or 500 pages makes no difference to the cost of distribution - so I’ve packed in as much information as I can and will keep adding more with new every quarterly edition.
It’s starting at 300+ pages and will grow to 400, 500 and beyond as I keep researching and writing and you send me your feedback and new questions to answer.
With a printed book there is always a cost with every page you include so naturally the volume of information and limited.
The Big Lappers Guide Book is also interactive with live web-links that you just click on and they will open a browser and take you straight to the website - beats typing in the URL!
But what if I want a printed copy?
You can get one. The Big Lappers Guide Book is formatted at A4 size and in such a way that it can be easily printed. You can print specific pages or sections on your own printer or copy the eBook to a USB stick and take it down to Officeworks and get them to print and bind a complete copy for you.
The Big Lappers Guide Book is the ‘must read’ guide for anyone dreaming about or actively planning their Big Lap around Australia.
