are the mutts ok there?
if nissan made a prop plane using the zd30 - would you fly in it?

if fishing were easy it would be called "your mum"

 In a cruel twist, i will be away out west on the newns date and will only get home the weekend before this one. It might be a bit of a stretch after 4 weeks of sleeping rough to drag the fam out the very next weekend. Ill work on it but im doubtful. Its a shame.
Sorry
 Darren

Stop press

 Just run it by the crew and they are keen. I'm going to leave all the gear in the car head up i hope..

If everyone is able to turn up this is going to be a huge event with 24 adults and 14 kids on the list so far.

Spread the word.   :cup:

I've got some pommie friends who'll likely come along and tent it with us.

Wow, might have to turn up early to get a site before all you other Myswaggers take over the joint.  Was someone worried earlier about their kids having someone to play with, with 14 kids on the list (so far), I think there will be company for just about every age in the tin lid department.  Bigjules you are setting the bar very high with this gathering.

Perhaps Laith may know of somewhere suitable to go for a drive on Saturday to test out the 4bs, or a beach run?  ???

If Pikey and Pommiedic come along your pommie friends will feel right at home.  ;D

G'Day
I told the missus about this cunning plan. This trip wil be the next weekend after spending 4 weeks sleeping in swags and tents. Then at this do you will all be there with your fancy campers so it sould be easy to pick one out and then convince her how good it wil be.
 Perfect timing i think

Very sly Darren, but quite a clever ploy.  Is your other half a little reluctant to purchase a camper again, or is she easing to the idea.  Four weeks in swags and I recon you should be able to get approval for any camper you like. 

The local Camp-o-matic sprooker/saleman will be there as well.

Not sure what it is like on shore, but offshore it is superb.  I went fishing off Crowdy Head in April this year and two of us caught our bag limit of flathead in 2 hours.

Howdy all,
 Sounds promising on the fishing front, will have to pack some fishing gear. The old woman is into scrap booking, so I can bugger off fishing & leave her with the girls to do "their" stuff ;D ;D >:D
.Had a bit of a fiddl;e with the C/T today, fitted some LED tail lights & had a think about rewiring the 12v system, many cans in the planning will be needed I feel :cheers: Bevan

Better be more specific Jules, I don't think you can camp at Crowdy Head itself.  It may have to be at Diamond Head, Kylies or Indian Head (Crowdy Head National Park).  Laith gave Kylies a pretty good wrap.
