It seems the travel bug has caught on in the Funkshen camp with Chase O’Leary following in the footsteps of fellow team rider Cade Sharp to travel the the vast Australian landscape.
“Me and my girlfriend Katy are going around Australia In my Toyota Coaster Bus,” Chase said.
“We’re pretty self-sufficient with a solar setup for power and a motorbike on the back to get to those hard places.
“Our first stop was along the coast of NSW and of course the South Coast. Katy is a filmer in training and doing really well! This is our first attempt at filming/editing while being on the road.
“I’m going to make some clips along the way to show what it’s like surfing, fishing and working while living in a bus! We’re currently in South Oz working on the grain harvest until Xmas then heading to tassie to meet up with Sharpy, Moot & Luke O’Conner.
“If you see us travelling along the coast come and say hello!! Enjoy”
