Sorryyyyyyyyy Another Newbie From Vic

Postby nios2 » Thu Oct 30, 2008 11:02 pm

Hello All,

Ah well!!!, Helen and John here, a late 40s and early 50s Melbourne couple with kids just off our hands and a bit of spare time now and always wanted to go camping.

We got ourselves kitted out at the "Rays 20% Off Day" with a Geo 6 and the basics. This "Cup Day" weekend we are off to the "Golden Nugget" park in Bendigo for our 1st ever night in a tent ... a power outlet and wireless internet included ... is that cheating?

The forecast is for "rain, wind and stroms" ... the 1st rain in Victoria for almost 10 years ... lol.

Will put up a review of the Park on our return.

Not cheating at all.. best to ease your way into bush "no toilet - no water" type of camping, otherwise you might not do it again! If your up for a chat, a C.P. always has someone ready to talk back and you might learn of some good spots nearby.

have fun!

Cheers, Nige

Hi Helen & John and WELCOME to the forum.

No one said that camping has to be primitive, thankfully those days are long gone. The only real criteria is to enjoy the camp and you do that however you see fit.

Have a good one and I look forward to hearing all about it on your return.

The worst day camping still beats the best day working

Hi and welcome.

As said before, it is best to start out with the chance to enjoy. As you acquire more gear you start to identify what you can leave at home. Hope the weather is better than forcast and you enjoy camping.
