Is it camping season yet?

I'll have to admit that I am a bit of a 'fair weather' camper.  Especially if we are going for a weekend close to home.  I mean - if it's a campsite a couple of hours from here and the forecast is rain, extreme cold or high winds then we put it off until a weekend with a better forecast.

In this region over the past few months the forecasts have generally been cold, a bit wet and occasionally windy - sometimes all three.

We were hoping to get away last weekend as we both had a three day weekend.  The weather blew in and we decided a picnic was the way to go and we ended up helping out at one of the local driver reviver stops on the Hume Highway instead.

Daylight savings has started which usually means that the weather starts to warm up, the wind starts to drop we are looking forward to some camps away for weekends.

I'm keen to get the 4WD in to 4WD for a bit of an explore, try out the new navigator, and the gold pans that we bought in the off season.

So, over the next few months I should be back with some new photos, GPS coordinates and descriptions of some campsites we have spent a couple of nights in.


  1. With you on the fair weather thing - don't be discouraged, it looks like dodgy weather over the whole country at the moment!

    Happy travels!
