Mike was born in the mid-west of NSW. He was educated in Sydney, conscripted in 1970, met Jo on a Suzuki 750 GT, married in 1975, and worked as a bureaucrat and a manager in a range of businesses.
Jo was born and educated in Sydney before escaping on the overland route to Europe. She returned with a love of travel and discovered Mike, bikes, kids and the hard grind of a teaching career.
Jo and Mike have lived and worked all over Australia and overseas. They have two adult offspring who saw the signs and left home years ago.
