Where is everyone going this Xmas Hols???

Postby xmasbaby67 » Fri Nov 23, 2012 2:52 pm

Just thought I would start a new thread to see where everyone is off to this Xmas Hols.

We are off to Merry Beach for a week of R&R in our Customline from 1st Jan till 8th Jan 2013!!!!! :cheers :cheers

Starting to get organised now.....I know, I know it's a bit early but the closer to Xmas it gets the busier I seem to get so thought I would make a start....

Can't wait and am counting down already as it is usually the only two weeks we get off for the year with owning our own business, so going to make the most of it.

I plan spending the whole week either on the beach reading my book/snoozing, swimming at the beach, sitting in my comfy camp chair reading, sitting in my comfy camp chair having a few coldies and enjoying the company of the good friends we are going with. :beer :beer :beer :beer :beer :beer

Campfire in our little ex-keg each night, playing cards till the wee hours, endless chats with great people.

We are staying at the Merry Beach Caravan Park and it looks lovely. Our friends stay there every year for two weeks and invited us to come along this year, but we can only fit one week in, but that is better than nothing!!!!!!!

Looking forward to hearing where everyone else is heading off to for some camping... ::) ::)

Off back to NZ in 3 weeks for Mums 80th...then decided to stay & have Xmas with her.



Trying to also get a weekend off so we can visit Atkinson Dam which is one of the Pet Friendly dams....and not to far away for a weekend trips.



After Xmas I have about 6 weeks of mon...fri shifts....so if we like Atkinson Dam....we can pop up there for a few of the weekends



Then in May its back to NZ for another quick visit then we are off to Lake Monduran for 2 weeks & we enjoyed Burram heads...so we will stop there for a week on the way home.



Hope alls well with you



Cheers

Going somewhere at some stage ....
Probably Echuca, then might tackle the Border Track from Mildura down.
But then it could turn out to be just up the rd :shock:
