1 pointHello All, we joined the KOG last year but haven’t been active on this site. Our first Kedron was a secondhand 2006 ATV which turned out to be a great van but we took delivery of a custom built 2013 XC with TopEnder furniture in June 2013 after a 15 month wait. We couldn’t be happier with the whole van. Since then we have spent each winter at Barn Hill Station Stay in WA. This year we have returned early and plan to do some local travelling around Qld including the Christmas Gathering and the Kingsley Grove Winery gathering. We are looking forward to meeting other like minded caravanners. Cheers - Ron and Judie
1 pointIt has been a long, long time since we were last a member and active on the forums. A lot of things happened at once and KOG went to the back burner I guess. Well now we are back and just like before I am the "forum" person behind the Ian and Sue name. Ian much prefers to do his own thing and let me chat on the forum, of course he expects to be informed of anything important. ha ha. We are still living in Geraldton WA even though we seem to spend best part of each year over east, mostly in Queensland. If I had my way, and if the housing market wasn't so bad here, we would be selling up and moving over - probably to the RV Homebase. Early in 2018 we were on our annual trek across the Nullabor heading to one of our geocaching events when only 60 kilometres from home we smashed our front window cover. Well....... eventually we arrived at the Kedron factory to buy another, which actually did happen BUT..... While there we took a tour around and checked out all the new innovations etc. We got as far as Gympie going north to Cairns when Ian asked whether I would like a new Kedron. He didn't need to ask twice! We turned back and ordered an XC5. Lucky for us somebody wanted to change their collection date, probably because it was right on Christmas so we jumped in quick and said put us in the slot. We continued on to Cairns in our trust old ATV2 but sickness in the family had me flying home a couple of times the last of which we decided I should stay back West, that was when I came upon someone in Geraldton wanting to buy a Kedron. Ian no sooner arrived home and our Kedron was gone. Three months without it nearly killed me. 🙂 We headed across in our RAM with our rooftop tent and collected our new Kedron just ten days before Christmas, we stayed over east for the next eight months and have only just arrived home. I am already working on getting across to the Christmas event, I must say Ian seems pretty keen too. Oh if only it wasn't 4500 kilometres from here, the RAM is much more economical to run than the LC200. ha ha ha... AND... you guys always have so much fun. Yes, I just have to make the trip. FOMO.... See I am right up there with the modern lingo. OK time to stop rambling here. It is great to be back. Sue
1 pointHi, Ian McLaren here, or Macca for short. Do not currently own a Kedron, but very keen on a 19’ Topender. I currently drive an MY17 200 Series GX Landcruiser, towing an Off Road Elite 18’ Goulburn RZ. My wife & I along with my Brother-in-Law love exploring this great country of ours. We travel with our dogs, and tend to mostly free camp. Our last trip last year was to Cape York, including The Old Tele Track, although we did not take the van up TOTT, leaving it and my wife at Bramwell Junction while my BIL & I drove TOTT. Other trips have included all the state border corners (including both corner posts at Survey Generals Corner), with the exception of the Vic/S.A./NSW border. Our next big trip will probably be Nhulunbuy, or the Kimberley. We did the Kimberley back in 2004, but would love to get back there again. Have crossed the Simpson a couple times, and will do this again, love the desert.
