No plans at this stage.
One day at a time ATM.
Although our club as a Camp weekend sorted for Australia Day weekend.
Free Camp, river, fingers crossed I can get there on the Thursday, before the great unwashed turn up ;)

Funny you should ask Fizzie  ;)
Our new caravan that we ordered in June will be ready to collect in 10 days, so real excited about that  ;D. It'll just be weekends for most of this year until we do a road trip to Tassie over the Xmas school holidays.

I'm reminded of that Yogi Berra quote- "It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future."

Here's a few more pearls of wisdom for our intellectual overlords and their hubris  :cup:

There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

Got presented with this at the retirement partly yesterday.  8) That was out of my truck and snapped in June of last year and had done about 790000Klms. Hate to think of how many gear changes that works out to be.  :-\ :o
