Just the fridge and food Troy . I'll make it all fit ,I may have to wedge the fruit into the spokes of the pushbikes like tennis balls though. Don't worry I wont leave Ange behind ,I'd be lost without her.

Presuming it is the same as mine, no the handle does not get hot at all. And PLEASE Frilly, use it with the gauze wire down on the flame.

You have no idea how many people I have come across who use it the wrong way. It is the flame on the gauze that gives the even distribution of heat and thereby toasts the bread.

Friends who camped with me over xmas (long term camping people) were amazed when they saw how I was using mine. Wife said to hubby "look at this, we use it the other way."

They came back later in the day all grins and you would have thought they'd won the lottery...

Like I said, 'even the small things can give you a buzz'...

Cheers..

That reminds of timber decking. I go into someones house and see timber decking installed upside down, instantly tells me they done it themselves. I smile to myself everytime I see it, even though I can understand their logic.

I know but that is what I wanted you to confirm for those who might not have known.

Ok, I will be seeing some of you tonight and the rest tomorrow.

The bookings are on the areas The Terrace, Hidden Terrace and the Hideaway. A $20 deposit has been booked for each site so you should just pay the rest at the kiosk. Also remember to pay me the $20 if you haven't done so because I will forget to collect. :armsup

Everyone have a safe trip.

Cheers

Arrived back safely!!!

Took 4 hours to get back. We stopped at the Caloundra turnoff for half an hour. Problem was it was in the middle of the Bruce Hwy! :(

A fabulous weekend!!! Thanks Troyk for arranging it for us, it was very sociable, the venue was great and who can complain about the food last night? The campoven cook up was a huge success!!

The highlight of the weekend for me was the introduction to "geo caching"... what a great way to do some exploring, get a little exercise and play this awesome GPS game.. I am thinking I could get addicted to it.. lol

Once again, thanks Troyk for organising it for us and I trust everyone got home safely.
I absolutely love downunder and want to see all of it, especially the outback
