G'day all.
Great site with plenty of good tips and info.

My wife and I are are in our 40s and our kids are now at ages where going on hols with mum and dad is way too uncool.

We like to travel but am totally sick of motels and smelly onsite cabins so we're thinking of camping instead.

I use to do a bit of camping when I was young and thoroughly loved it but the wife has only roughed it once or twice so we'll be sticking to places where there are good facilities...for time being.

Anywayz, just thought I'd say hi before I start with the 1000 questions.

Thanx for the warm welcome. :grin:

Yep, camping can be addictive, though I just hope my wife isn't immune.
It will be nice camping grounds with green grass and first rate facilities until I can get her hooked.
Otherwise there be some camping gear going cheap on ebay and some expensive motel bills in the future.
If I can't smell the Eucalypts its not home.

:hello: Brett,

Yep, camping can be very very addictive. Your wife will get in the swing of it all. Take her to beautiful beaches and watch the waves roll in and the sun go down and come up. Make sure she has a nice glass of wine and you will be set.

It's all about Beer, Hubbie, Fishing, Camping, Kids & Boating.. Oh and Me
