We are a family of 5 from Perth, WA. Until recently we have been camping with the basic tent set-up. We have just bought a camper trailer/tent (but won't pick it up until December).
We have decided to do the 'take a year off and do the big lap around Australia' thing in 2011. Need to save for the next year so we won't have to work lots, although we already have a few people we know on farms that will give us work.
As the new trailer will be our home for a year, we needed as much information on what we need etc. We'll also use the next year to test our set-up and make sure it is ok for the big trip. An exciting time.
We have a camp oven set-up that I am going to try in our back-yard to see what kind of burnt offerings, err... masterpieces I can whip-up. Did not want to spend $200+ on a Cobb oven! If it works, I'll be sure to post a pic and some recipes.
Looking forward to getting lots of great hints and tips here.
