I know we're getting into winter and while I don't mind the occasional winter camp, with 2 small children under 5, August onwards is starting to look more appealing. However, what I would like to do is start to generate some interest camping as groups. As a married woman whose husband does not like to be venture bound as much as I do, I tend to holiday with the kids quite a bit on my own. That makes tent camping near impossible on my own (the kids just don't quite hold those tent poles where they are meant to!!) and even hiring a campervan.... it just seems so hard on my own. It would be nice to have some other families to laugh with when I pound my thumb with the hammer while hammering tent pegs, you know??? the kids will love having other kids around too.
A bit about us:
I'm in my 30's with 2 girls aged 2 and 4. Since having the kids, we have only tent camped at Kingscliffe but I'd like to hire a camper trailer to try (possibly buy) and would like to start going back to Girraween where my husband and I used to camp a lot as pre-kid adults...
I work in health research and my husband (as he will join us sometimes) works in IT.
I'm calling all families - 2-parent, single, kids, no kids (but be warned you'd best like kids even if you don't have your own
to go on hols with - to share the 'child watching', to share the stories of pain (I mean joy) of parenting... Sunshine Coast region, GC region.... out west.
Must like drinking wine by the campfire... (ok you don't have to like drinking wine by the campfire... but I will be)
Looking forward to responses......
