Hi all been a while since I last posted but check the boards all the time.

Anyways the Evo clan just did 5 nights at someset dam.

It was great - met some really good people and every arvo we had a happy our were we would go to someones site and just yack and have a few cold ones before dinner.

We had a powered site (mrs E) does not do bush bashing EVER!!!!

The grounds were in really good condition - although the water was very dirty with all the rain we had.

The place is being run by two sisters and they could not help out enough.

They would come down to all the time with weather reports.

They put on movies in the park for the kids - a FREE sausage sizzle - volley ball comps and were just really nice genuine people - even let me refreeze my ice packs on day three.

We are going back for sure.

Sounds like you had a good time. :grin:

Do they have hot showers? Remember (might be wrong) that they only had cold showers.

Hi Shermo

We have a theory about these bugs.
We call it "the Night of the Nats"
We find that some nights are
fine, "very little amount of bugs" (up to a hundred)
then, "the night of the nats" (millions)
then, "the night of the notso" (thousands)
then, fine "very little amount of bugs" (up to a hundred)

but remember "they were here first"

try the new Bushmans repellant 40% DEET
