Well Guys I've been browsing your site for a couple of months now and I've decided that I better join.
I've actually only just found an interest in camping again after being out of it for a few years.
I was a scout for about 5 years and I spent about 200 nights under canvas in that time. I never got into all the "scouting" activities and there was a group of 4 of us who basically tried to get away at least 1 weekend a month.
My interests in scoutting and camping diminished when i was about 17 due to several factors and I quickly replaced camping with other recreational activities such as drinking.
From the age of 14 I had an interest in Car Audio and basically anything to do with in car entertainment, I spose it wasnt just limited to car audio as i also went on to become an Audio Engineer for live productions. I also judge CAASQ (australias only car audio sound quality competition) and Im a member of http://www.caraudioaustralia.com
Through school I studied electronics and that has helped me (what i remember of the course any way) with many things in building showcars, audiocars and hopefully in the future 4x4/trailer auxilary electrical systems.
I have a fairly keen interest in fishing particularly in freshwater fly fishing for trout in the river systems. and Im a member of http://www.tacklebox.com.au
Ummm yeah so thats a bit of a background on me so you can see where im coming from with any comments or questions i have for you guys.
Oh and my reason for getting back into camping is because both my self and my girlfreind love camping and have missed camping over the last few years. plus with the two of us trying to save for a house each camping gives us an economical way to get away together and have a break away.
