hope nobody in Vic wants to go interstate...

Australians needing a Covid test are preparing for another day of lengthy queues with some centres reaching capacity before they even open for business.

We've done a big tip this year which was brilliant. Right now we're doing a bit of "map staring" to work out where our next adventure will take us. All we've come up with so far is a couple of small trips - perhaps a week around Omeo or a week or so at Kiata (near Nhill) or a week on the Murray somewhere. We're going nowhere during the school holidays though.
This country is so bloody big that we're spoilt for choice in a big way.... :D :D
We'd really like to see a bit of FNQ and go back to Marble Bar though.... Maybe an idea for June through to September.... :D

Same place we go for every Christmas... 2000 acres of private property that we don't have to share with anyone else at Mt.Barney  ;D

We both have to work between Christmas & new year, but the camp is only an hour from home so we can go out for the 4 days of chrissy, come home for the 3 days work, and then back out for the New Year long weekend  8)

Back to the family home for Xmas day. It's been a bitter sweet trip that we have to repeat in 2 weeks time.

We should have been spending this Christmas and New Year back in WA. Instead, we are off to sunny Wales. The pub will be open but Omnicron restrictions mean we will have to sit outside and it has to shut at 10pm on New Year’s Eve.

Looking on the bright side, it’s slightly better than last year when we were confined to our houses.

True Fizzie, but at least we get to choose who with  8)

Having said that though there was a heap of traffic come through the camp on Sunday Arvo. The property has Nat Park on 3 of the boundaries and the owner has an agreement with the rangers that they can use the property to access the back of the bush walking tracks and walk in campsite for maintenance. Someone swimming at the lower portals injured themselves on Sunday arvo so there was 4 SES cars, a police 4wd, and a 4wd ambo all come through for the rescue (RFS had to leave their truck at the gate and hitch a ride in with the SES). Its 4km each way to walk from the National Park carpark to the portals using the bush walking track, but using the 4wd track through the property we camp at we can drive to within about 200m of the portals. Sometimes for entertainment we like to upset the hard core bushwalkers that have trecked in for a swim by rocking up in thongs with an esky   >:D
