Sorry for being or sounding sensible !!! ;D

My saw's only a baby Huskie, and stone cold sober, I cut my leg ( 2 times ) while trying to start it the macho way ( holding it in one hand, doing a drop pull on the cord )

I'll hang back and do the splitting !!!!! That way I can only sever my foot !! ;D



Just don't mention ABS ;D

I'm sure there will be plenty of other dribble being discussed around the campfire without having to mention ABS Baz !! ;D ;D

I'm sorry Gronk. I just realised how offensive my last post was. I'm sure (hope) you are way smarter than me  ;D

Offensive ???  Were you worried you might be AS dumb as me ??? ;D ;D

Don't worry, after 15 beers I get real smart ....... :'(  Just ask the missus !! ;D

I think he doubled up the two lists.

I think the boy will have a ball, he's a real ladies man. ;D The girl is a bit clingier so I think she will take a bit of time to settle in.  :cheers:

10:4 Rubby Ducky, we got ourselves a convoy....

I am really pleased with the level of interest in this trip, it will be great to meet everyone. This is exactly why I joined MySwag - to go camping with more families, couples and singles.

With such a big crowd, I've been tossing up suggesting we try to organise a spit roast. A lamb and a side of beef. Too much effort?

 It might end up a lot of effort for a few. Might be better if we keep it simple.
 Just a thought

KIS - Keep It Simple

The idea is great, but to organise the spit as well as the meat, and to then get it all to the camping ground could become a logistical nighmare.

Just kick back and enjoy the crowd Jules, you have done a great job with this one.  You certainly set the bar high for any future New South Gatherings, the pressure on the next organisor will be tremendous.

Darren I don't think there will be room for the mighty KK as well as a swag beside it, one or the other.

That's an easy decision for me ol mate but i think all this luxury is spoiling the fam. Then again the krumberley may be spread across central Australia by then..

Right!! McGirr has stirred the pot so I've stirred the Hornets nest up north to see if those Qldrs can get more punters to their weekend up at LC park than we Blues can to Crowdy head. I hope Kylies can fit us all in.  ;D

Not sure which side of the fence to sit on with this one, being a Qld ex-pat, so I may just have to sit right on top of the fence in the middle.
