    Camping

    So...

    did this on the long weekend




    bread and butter for the trusty falcon..


    haven't camped in nearly 15 years. thought we'd give it another crack. we camped in the Naracoorte Caves National Park. its in a campground so has shower/toilet block available, so we weren't totally 'roughing it' so to speak. was a great little spot and thoroughly enjoyed 5 days kicking back 'off the grid'.

    we did the caves whilst there and they are amazing. if you haven't done the caves and it interests you, then i would highly recommend them.

    Good idea. We've got a Coromal F400 wind up camper that we will be hoping to get some more use out of this year now that the kids are past the 'painful traveler' phase. Gotta do some mods to it first, might even start a project thread for it

    Good lookin' camp, bloke.
    Hope you get out more n' more. I enjoy all my little trips around - lots more to come too.

    Oh, BTW, when camping using a trailer years ago, I found to keep the gear dry, I got hold of a very large tarp, laid it in the bottom of the trailer, with the rest of it over the A frame. Then we packed all the gear in folded up the sides into the middle then the rest over the top to the rear and tied it down. Nice cocoon and your gear stays dry in any dirty weather.

    I was a camper back in the scout days etc but not coming of age or with my family.
    As much as I admire peoples efforts - set ups - and the wonderful places to stay at or venture around our beautiful country I always see it as to laborious and the amount of stuff you need + the weather makes or breaks it.
    We have over the years stayed in the cabins at cara parks and find this pretty dam close to the camping feel LOL....
    I can walk by them and admire and say GDay

    I liked the Primus stove, camp bed with sleeping bags, the sound of rain on the tent, sitting around the gas light, telling yarns to each other. Good Days indeed.

    Yes Blue, I had gone that train of thought longlong ago, more so renting house's but I have to say having mentioned made use of those cabins in caravan parks at times, depending the type you go for and some are really good quality nowadays having kids still at 16 and 11yrs they have a Great time due to many other kids around and facilities leaving us parents with much eating and drink time !

    as you can see in the second pic, i have a nice big LED lantern hanging from the centre (1000 lumens) but also still went with the gas light as well. this was pretty much 100% for nostalgic reasons. you don't feel like you are properly camping without that gas light
