alone or group.

A place to talk about anything well just about anything (this is a family show remember).

wondered if that was wierd 'cos all other people on here seem to be going with family or the likes.

It's not wierd, I enjoy both types of trips.

If I'm off for a trip alone I definately don't head for a family campground.
That's your opportunity to think out life's issues, and enjoy your own company.
There is also more potential for interaction with nature while you're at it alone,
and you're the boss, everything will happen at your own pace.

Having said that, it's hard to beat camping as an activity with friends/family.

Don't feel silly, perhaps just be aware that they are different types of trips.

cool thanks for that info.

gives me more confidence to experience the camping world solo. (to begin with atleast)

my main concern with my plans. is just about where i can and can't set up tent. (i know about nat. parks and the likes)

but just the whole bush/free camping. where u can and can't.
if you can't learn to do it right.
enjoy doing it badly.

That's the hard part.

Perhaps look for words through their sites like "Remote camping"
or "Remote Bush Camping" if you are really trying to get out of the way.
Main Range park is an example of a place you could do that,
and I think bush camping is permitted in Girraween Ntl Prk also.

alrighty.

thanks for that.

i am thinking that lone camping is what i want. i don't want anything but complete silence ('cept for nature) and tranquility. not a mate or 2 argueing who gets the best spots. etc.

although. mates are gunna be included after a few trips.

I like to go with my family and at least one more - that way the kids have other kids to play with and we have other adults to talk to as well!!
So I suppose I like doing it with others as well!! LOL

I love going with my family and usually with another family makes for great company and adventures. The kids love the fishing, camping and seeing the wonders of Australia. :+

Iv'e done it all, from big mobs as a young bloke to just me and the misus in my late twenties on and then when the kids arrived just the family pod with an occasional trip with other families. In Feb this year I wanted to do a trip and no one else could come so I spent 10 days touring East Gippsland by myself. And as someone else said their is nothing like it for a bit of reflection. But also, doing what you want, when you want, where you want is a bit of an adventure. I eneded up near the head of the Murray in quite remote country and loved the experiecne. What is the saying?, "I don't mind my own company". Scott.

I've done a few 'photography' trips by myself and I enjoy the solitude and being able to stop whereever, whenever I want. However, camping with the family is great, nothing like toasting marshmallows in a fire!

I go it alone sometimes!

Postby Frilly » Sat Nov 10, 2007 9:55 am

Hey Ya! As a single parent with a 15 and 17 year old quite often I go by myself as they dont want to tag along (the 17son has never been with me!) Thats whyI joined this group to find others to camp with... although I dont mind weekends away by myself!
