Surviving a 6-month camping trip

My boyfriend and I are going to be living out of this car
for six months while we drive around Australia. Is there anything we should know to keep us safe, sane and well-fed?

We both enjoy camping, but haven't been on a trip this long before. We have hobbies which work well in isolation. Me: photography, crochet. Him: whittling, target practice. Both of us: reading, chess, bushwalking. Is there anything else we could skill up on during our trip, which requires only a small investment in terms of money and space?
I'm also not sure how to plan a menu around limited budget, shopping opportunities and refrigeration space. Most of the camp recipes I've found assume the trip is an overnighter, or have a reliance on canned cream of _____ soup. I'm imagining a lot of lentil curry in our future.
Any tips around making this a truly enjoyable tip to remember would be appreciated!
