Easter was boring, and just like any other weekend as we didn't end up going camping.

My old computer which I recently passed on to my son and visiting teenage daughter died last week too. I got that replaced and put linux on both for the first time. So far all it's done is almost make windows look good for the first time since I bought a computer back in 2000... Almost. Maybe I should chuck my computer and start up a couple of different Notice Boards at the local supermarket. :|

Sounds like an interesting read. Where did you buy it? I haven't found much in the way of camping books at the local bookstores.

Not wanting to sound sexist. But how different is from what a bloke does?
Doesn't matter how I ask that question it sounds sexist ::()

Is it for solo camping or camping for women only. I'm intruigued. Do tell more.

Mrs Bravo has no trouble packing to go camping. She just puts everything out and expects me to find a place for it. :?

Not sexist in anyway, Its very family friendly and stress free ideas of travelling and camping AND SURVIVING while doing it :grin:

Image

It is a booklet written by Julie Bishop and Regina Jones. I picked it up at the local Camping World for $18.95

The booklet came about after a family holiday to the tip of Cape York in Sept - Oct 2000. They travelled for 5 weeks setting up and pulling down 16 campsites. The roll call at the holiday's peak was 9 adults, 8 kids, 7 tents, a common eating area for 17 people, 4 4wd's and 3 trailers.

It just gives you many many tips on storage and packing, esky and fridges, water, certain boxes (organisation) Tried and tested (pros and cons of) - Tents, tables, lighting, chairs, medical, checklists, bedding, bathrooms, toiletries, clothing, washing, camping with kids, cooking, cooking equipment, utensils, canned, dehydrated, packaged, fresh, kryovac meats and food. recipes, preparing meals, happy hour treats :grin: , 5 minute meals, desserts and checklists for everything.

The main thing they stress is that EVERYTHING has a home.

not a bad little booklet especially for first timers. ::)
