Didn't I saw not under 8 - 10 years old
In years to come you'll laugh.
One of the worst camping trips Kel and I had was up at Eildon.
We got up really late because I got held up at the office till about 9 pm (the joys of being the manager and the bosses son...)
We set up in the rain - had a crap night sleep due to the fact that it was so dark we somehow managed to pick the WORST campsite in all the fraser camping grounds.
It proceeded to rain all saturday which wasnt too bad but we were waiting for about an hour to get a fire bin from the ranger (you have to hire them in certain campgrounds at eildon) well the ranger never turned up and in the last 15 minutes of waiting kel decided to down half a bottle of red then proceeded to drink more once we drove back to the camp site.
Then it happened - I sliced my thumb with a brand new knife right to the bone. Kel wasn't able to drive (Did i mention that she'd gotten stuck into a bottle of red? LOL) so i had to drive myself in the rain in an old range rover (which handled like a brick on wheels) with one hand clamped over the thumb on the other hand in the rain at night all the way into alexandra (about 30 minutes drive in those conditions).
Then just to add to the fun every bit of wild life in a 30km radius decided to jump onto the road and sit there!
We ended up finding a hospital at Alexandra (I knew there was one there cause mum had her apendix out there when she was a kid and her parents owned a boarding house up that way) but the hospital normally doesnt treat emergencies. Any how we ended up getting it stitched up that was another saga 6 stiches later we were heading back to camp LOL.
It was an interesting night. The doctor told me that I was less that a bees u know what from cutting through a nerve which would have me with a permanently numb thumb at best or possible an entire hand with no feeling! Eeeks!
At the time it was the most horrible camping trip ever - now we look back and laugh about it.
