Thought I would jump on here & let everyone know a bit about me, I have already posted in the camping tips section after I found the thread about Lake Munmorah NP on the Central Coast of NSW.
I am 40 yrs old (young?) seperated about 15mths from my previous marriage of 15 yrs, my ex was not into camping, in fact was not into anything I was into
Now with a new woman for the past 15 mths, known her for about 14 yrs & used to go away with her & her ex to caravan parks etc, but never camping.
She is the most wonderful woman, she lets me be myself & takes an interest in my hopes & dreams, so you could say in the past 15 mths I have started living again
When I was single I did a lot of camping in the lower Blue Mountains at Glenbrook NP, also been to Katoomba & walked out to Mt Solitary (5 hrs each way)
Also camped at Lake Lyle near Lithgow last August with a few workmates - the first time I had gone away by myself for over 14 years with the blessing of my new partner, now with new woman in tow I am hoping to get around the country side camping a lot more
I have stocked up on the camping stuff over the last few months in prep for a beachside camp at Lake Munmorah, can't wait!!!
I bought my 2 burner stove at Kmart, 2 extra sleeping bags, all on special(only had 3 bags before & taking 3 kids with us)
Shopped around & found a 4kg gas bottle at Bunnings was only $31 whereas a 3kg was about $35
go figure, Kmart had the 4kg for $35 & Big W was $36
I have been flitting around all the camp shops & Kmart/Big W/The Warehouse looking for bargains
I have even trial packed the boot of the car to make sure it all fitted in!
