SEQ Trips - What are your preferred months?

Postby Troyk » Mon Jun 16, 2008 11:16 am

Only answer this poll if you are planning or thinking of coming on the trips thanks. :mrgreen:

To better plan when is the best months to organise trips, especially if we need numbers at certain venues, I thought I would poll the audience to see when is the best time to go.

Sorry you can only have 10 options so this is why there is some 2 month answers.

You can select any number of months right up to all twelve.

Cheers.

I camp all year round, hot or cold weather conditions are not a deterrent to me.

Tuff...hey, well that's a good one AS:-)))) I love it...

I am sure if I was able to spend some time with you I could help you adjust your mindset to camping in the winter months. It is all in the preparation AS, believe me.

Somehow i dont think you will succeed on that one GL i got no padding to keep me warm and i would need that many layers of clothes I'd be walking like a mummy :*** . (trust me i've done it as i lived in the country in SA and had to milk cows in the early morning dressed like a mummy....not a pretty sight lol)
It's not so much the mindset it's just the dam cold anything below 15 and i'm freezing my butt off. You'd never think i was born in Scotland hey lol

I reckon I could come close AS....

And it is not the number of layers as much as it is the type of layers that is the secret.

I am sure that is what she meant AS but it takes more than just spencers as well.

In saying that, it is probably not the best place (thread hijack) to discuss it here, maybe one day we will both be in the same campground at the same time and can chat some more.

Cheers Gypsy

suppose it would depend on a lot on the area you are climatisted to :
I have lived in Bowral in the N.S.W Southern Highlands for 35 yrs (weigh around 55kg) --- born & breed in Sydney
this area has quite cool winters -- sub <3c and a avg temp of around 25c in summer

hence i seek out warmer areas in winter such as Qld in winter but retreat to places like Tassie in the warmer months
but as pointed out in another post ---- correct underclothing is the key i find in winter.

as they say you can always warm up (camp fires etc ) but it's bloody hard to cool down !

besides travel in the opposite direction to the mob and you often have the sites to yourself.

cheers
THIS too shall change
