My camping bug started out many years ago in the UK in the Scouts and from there went with me into my mountaineering and Mountain Rescue days so everything I had was light and portable enough to fit on my back. I did eventually upgrade to a "large" 3 person tent and it was with this that I introduced my partner to the joys of camping.

So the first few shots are our first camp over the New Year break this year. You can see my "Large" tent and one of my larger mountain tents in this shot along with my two very lovely camping companions. You can also see our kitchen set-up.

Then I improvised a table using an esky, blow up mattress and a beach mat.

The next trip was with another couple who we were reintroducing to the delights of camping and by this time my GF had spotted a bigger tent in Rays when we were in buying two poles and decided that bigger is better. :--?
Image

This along with a table and a couple of chairs underneath the tarp our friends had brought along with their gas light and we were well on the way to being sorted.

Crepes anyone?

So the we decided to upgrade a little further and so we currently stand at this set up with gazebo, freestanding cooker and light powered from bottled gas along with a pantry, collapsible garden bin, door mats, two bikes and strecher camp beds.

And of course something to put it all in as my backpack was not going to cut it anymore.

Off again in two weeks and we will see what else might be needed. Have picked up a couple of tarps so excited to see how I will use them :bunny


These places your camped at look very familiar, i know one for certain Wollindilly River and maybe the Pines in the Watagans?

Nice P38 too by the way :mrgreen:

Two from two Redback, very impressive. The first is in the state forest up near Lithgow near Glow Worm Tunnel Road.

P38 eh? Haven't heard that in a while. Gotta love the Range Rover ::)
How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

This is our set up.

We have a 55 litre Evakool fridge, 12V setup, 240 Volt for when we have power. We have a Drifta swing-out tailgate kitchen, a Lido Junior stove which is permanently hooked to the gas, a couple of portable tables (large one for when we are staying for a while) and a small one for overnight stops and as a drinks & nibblies table for meal times. Bought a Jimmy's thunderbox for our outback trip & the wife found it great.

Hope it works out ok for you with the tent Scott!

i haven't got any recent pics exept the one with the recliners, i knew our trip up to koondrook was coming so i went to the op shop and bought 2 dodgy couches to take. turns out they were recliners and i got em for $5ea. then while doing a delivery for work i found to for free on the side of the road so i took them aswell. and they all fit inside my hiace on top of the queen size matteres. on my van i have a rail on each side to slide a tarp into, each tarp is 3.6m long by 3.0m wide and here is what it looks like with the chairs.

here is a pic of most of our camping crew

Here is a pic of my CT set up at xmas time. There is a 20 x 30 tarp over the camper and the annex with an attached 12 x 24 extended awning

Yes it takes a while to set up but is only used for extended camps and there are also storm covers which zip directly over the fly screens if required.

Weekend camps I use only the CT and the 20 x 30 tarp over which still provides coverage over the kitchen and still provides a good space under which to sit.
