Sorry, this is one I would have really liked to come along to, but unfortunately I'm already off with a group of 8 adults and 6 kids to Flat Rock.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!

Still working on the Camp oven menu for us. Juts remeber we wont have Bill's tutelage this time, so we are on our own. I am sure we will do him proud :armsup

Anyone got any other activities in mind over the weekend?

Maybe will_deness can enlighten us on geocaching. :mrgreen:

I will search for some sites around the dam or the park

To put a cache down you need to live near or be in the area on a fairly regular basis so if it needs maintenance because it can get lost, damaged or destroyed, if that happens and a number of people can't find the cache, it needs to be handy so the owner can duck in and check it to make sure its ok. Saying that I do have a ammo box handy :P

Heya Troy, we're bringing the canoe and trying to organise a trailer to bring the bikes. We need a semi just about, I can't believe the list Paul and I have written!!!! We forget we have a wagon and three people still need to fit haha... PS we have a new tent I am so embarrassed!!! We put it up the other weekend OH MY GOD a twelve man tent for 2 adults and 1 kid that took way toooo long to put up :*** oh happy days!!! But hey we can't wait!!!!!

Heya does anyone know any SIMPLE camp oven recipes? Paul did a pre-run of his stew and dumplings - hmmmm the fire scares me haha

Anyone up for snags on a stick - no serious we need help!!!

Can't wait to meet everybody - we will be the ones with the semi...

Cheers Kez ::()

Ps regarding Geocaching - is this on the agenda? or just throwing ideas around? Because we only have a compass - but hey it glows in the dark :?#
