A place to talk about anything well just about anything (this is a family show remember).

I love how this thread is called Can Camping be Romantic and the last two pages are whether or not we`ll throw up if we eat Dereks cooking. :***

It seems to happen quite regularly here where one comment leads to another and another and eventually a becomes completely different topic.

Just goes to show how much a story can get changed.

I am the guilty one on this occasion when I commented to Derek about seeing Thommo recently and of course it snowballed from there.

That may well be the case but I would have to be the one to sue if it were me who got sick and that is something I would not do under those circumstances.


Unfortunately when it comes to litigation common sense doesn't mean anything at all. Not only that I am sure there are people out there deliberately trying to allow "things" to happen to them so they can sue.

Usually when I cook people are at it like vultures as soon as it is out of the oven. Muffins, cakes, damper, roasts all goes like wild fire.

Some venues have rules that don't allow sampling and I am happy with that although to my mind it takes away from the show.

Imagine sitting there for an hour and smelling all those yummies and not being able to eat it. :***

Oh yeah, I haven't taken any of this discussion personally. It's been a good debate.

Derek, you would have blown me out of the water if I had logged on found that you did take it personally.

The other bit of course is how the thread got hijacked yet again....

Oh and of course litigation and commonsense....never the twain shall meet...

What a neat old thread to find.....until it went off the original topic...i.e ''litigation and commonsense....etc''took over the topic.

Pity Gypsy you couldn't go back and delete / transfer some of the later replies to another area...Be great to see this one restart..

Also amazing yet disappointing to see all these old campers names from this era now not involved with the forum....They had some hard case replies back then

Cheers....(and where on earth is every-one ?????????????????????)

Thought that there may have been at least 1 younger camper (LIKE ''XB''..lol) who would have added to this by now. :(
I mean.....What about OUR ''new'' Dad....Dickko...........?????? :***
