Did it come in the hessian bag????

Great to hear you are happy with it Rosco....we love ours but don't get to use it often enough....we live in the middle of town so lighting a campfire in our backyard would not be a neighbour friendly thing to do???

No I go crook on the neighbours as every second weekend they have a fire going in the backyard while I have a line full of washing that was getting all stinked up....so now they come over and tell me that they are lighting the fire so I can get the washing in.....

I wouldn't mind it every now and again but we are one block from the main street of the town and they have a wood fire in the house, a wood fire in the shed (which is only 1 metre from our outdoor entertaining area) and they also have a campoven pit in front of the shed which is just near the chook yard(which adjoins the dividing fence) so we also have chooks right on our patio area, also the two barking dogs(1 blue heeler & a pug) that are locked up in one quarter of the yard and heelers need to be really active but this poor guy is stuck in the pool yard 24/7 and barks at EVERYTHING!!!!!! Not to mention my two labs digging up my garden trying to get to the damn chooks!!!!! Their yard is like a tip and NOW he is builing a WOODFIRED pizza oven or something so now he will have FOUR fires going in his damn yard!!! O JOY, hence we entertain inside during winter..... ::()

DAMN FERALS SHOULD SELL UP AND BUY A BLOCK OUT OF TOWN!!!!!!!

Sorry but with the campfire going every other weekend it all gets a bit too much for us.

*rant over*

Thanks Rosco....was on a bit of a rant but it gets to us sometime!!!!!

Winter is bad enough here with me not getting out camping enough but these eejits just make it so much worse.

You should see their yard....and worse still they have a CT in the backyard out in the open getting absolutely ruined....has mould all over the cover after being out in the weather for the past two years with no use at all :cry:

OK that's enough sadsack from me today..... :*** :*** :*** :*** :***

So did your kit come with the hessian bag????

xmasbaby67 wrote:, also the two barking dogs



I am the biggest 'doggie' person going (yeah, yeah I know I am a bitch) BUT barking dogs get so far up my nose, it is not funny. The one next door to me does the very same thing....Sunday it just barked most of the day as the neighbours were out and to make matter worse, she had company.

Their friends bought their dog over to keep it company and they both barked and then the dogs down the back barked…drove me nutz.

Overall they are good neighbours but their barking dog would be enough drive anyone to distraction.

We have THAT barking dog EVERY DAY!!!!! Even when they are home they just let him bark. I don't get it how they can turn off like that.

She was out in the backyard early morning last week having her smoke and the dog was going off it's nut at the guy next door chopping wood near the adjoining fence and she didn't say a word??????? I was hanging out the washing at yelled at him to shut up and only then did she tell him to sit down but he ignored her and kept going ::()

Glad they have moved him to the other side of the yard now as when he was on our side the kids would be out the backyard with our two dogs playing cricket and he would even go the kids when they picked the ball up near the fence....really scared me and the kids so we put pavers under the fence so their little fingers wouldn't get bitten off. Ridiculous . Glad they moved him over to the other side.

It's a great setup Rosco.....You could cook a steak in a frypan and have a mushroom sauce going in a pot next to it?????

I never want to go out in the rain.....

Think it might be something else that is enticing your Rosco.....think you are using the rain as an excuse.
