Hi from Richmond NSW :)

Postby fontmedia » Mon Jan 18, 2010 10:28 pm

Just a very quick introduction from me :)

I'm Rachelle, married to Graham and have a 10 year old daughter. We've been camping for about 4 years now and absolutely love it. So far we havent ventured off the caravan parks but you never know... one day! Sadly though, the longer we use the powered sites, the more likely we are never to move away from them!! It seems every time we head out we're taking more than we did the last time!! Up until our last trip we've managed without a tarp but now we wouldnt go without one. It made such a huge different to how we lived while camping and the space inside the tent... loved it!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone here!

Hi Rachelle and WELCOME to the forum. Yes I agree camp life is so much better when you tarp over and definitely a necessity IMO.

Glad to see you enjoying camping even if I think you are cheating a bit when you CP it.....lol.

You can get electric in the bush by way of a generator Rachelle. You can always switch from 240 volt to 12 volt and then use solar to charge up the batteries. Not a set up for everyone & can be quite costly to set up but still an option taken up by a lot of camping folk.

Alternatively you can camp in what I call a campground and often these are set in bushland settings. Have a look at this one which will give you an idea of what I am referring to: http://www.bushcamping.com.au/

It has power and most of the regular amenities of a CP. You might need to do some research in your area to see if there are any of these type campgrounds around.

G'day and welcome. A wise man told me that you spend the first few years of camping getting together a heap of gear and the next 20 years doing away with it all and using only essentials ;)

Welcome to the forum, we do most of our camping at van parks or reserves with hot showers, but always unpowered so we are pretty self sufficient now, just got a 3 way fridge so now we don't need to buy ice, also have a solar panel to recharge lights etc
