    Wonderful campground at WA national park.

    And we have just spent four days at Shannon NP, South of Bridgetown. Lovely area of forest and ferns. The camping area has a new area with large and open sites on terraced areas on a gentle slope, and an older area among the trees. We chose the middle ground, near trees and vegetation but out in the open for solar panels. Hot showers and flushing toilets nearby.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS

    Same to you both, and of course all of the Kedron family. I hope lots of you are out and about having fun!

    Taking the Plunge

    Welcome Peter and Rommey! It is good to see you join the Ked ron family. We also live in SA (we are up in the Barossa Valley) so we may join up with you sometime, in your nice, shiny and new van. When we drove up to QLD to pick up our new van we went up the most direct route (through Mildura, Hay etc) but came back via a meandering route through NSW and Victoria. And how exciting it is to plan a trip with a brand new Kedron. I made a list of all the things we would need in the new van, which was divided into two parts ; those items I could take from home, and those which would have to be purchased new in Brisbane. This was things like tea towels, cutlery, pots and pans, sheets and towels etc. I found it very helpful to have that list. Still have it on the computer somewhere.... chris
  4. We are camped in the South West Of WA, just South of Margaret River, in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. The campground is called Jarrahdene. This is a drop dead gorgeous spot, set among flowering banksias and vines and ferns. Quite a few of the sites fit a good sized caravan and we have a nice big site with the usual wooden table and chairs and fireplace. Nearby are toilets and a covered kitchen with gas barbeque, and a dump point. And both Margaret River township and Augusta are short drives away. Equally important, we have reasonable phone and internet reception. The only problem for some of our brethren is that it being a national park they do not allow dogs. I feel so lucky to be in such a lovely spot.
  5. Gosh it looks like it was a great time was had by all at the KOG gathering and AGM this weekend. President Tony Heat has put a massive amount of time and energy into organising this event and he is to be congratulated on it. These photos were taken by Glen Gall, who was at the gathering.

    Silverado and ATV for Sale

    We are sorry to hear that Leon. But to help you sell the rig, it may help if you put up a link to the Carsales/Caravan sales site.... Alternatively put a few details here, including photos. Photos are always a great help in selling a van. good luck with the sale!

    Kwolyin Bush Camp WA

    We are at a lovely bush camp about 3 hours East of Perth, WA. It has flushing toilets, a free gas barbecue and stove top and water. Lovely spot. And we were joined by our wonderful friends Karen and Paul Slater from nearby Merredin. Karen is our forum’s hardworking Webmaster...

    Drones

    There is an interesting discussion on another forum regarding use of drones. It is less about the type of drone and more about the rules around usage of drones. http://caravanersforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=69072 But on a related topic, Kedron owner Danno Bananno has a drone (or three) and is an expert. He posts a lot on the Kedron owner’s Facebook site if you want o look there.

    An update. The springs have arrived. Hallelujah. They only took 11 days to get to Perth from Brisbane. Val drove down from Merredin to pick them up and got home about 4pm. He was greeted by me saying I thought a fuse had gone on the solar panel system as we had had no power coming in all day from the roof solar panels. So he got out of the car, exhausted, and had to fix the fuse. It never rains but it pours.

    And that was good advice about where the mechanic works from...who knows we may need him yet?😄

    On Friday we were joined here at our campground near Bencubbin by fellow Kedron owners who live in Merredin. We had never met before except through this forum, but they took pity on us and thought they would come up to keep us company 😍. We have had a wonderful time together, sharing outrageous (and probably mostly true) stories over cups of coffee and cold drinks. So we have decided to go down to Merredin tomorrow, travelling slowly and with Karen and Paul keeping us in front of them in case of any mishaps. Then Val will have a clear run to the city when he needs to pick up the springs. Hopefully that will be sooner rather than later. It pays to be a Kedron owner 💕

    Christmas gathering and present

    Ideally it should be related to caravanning but doesn’t have to be. Some good ideas I have seen before have included a led light which adheres to the outside of the van; a lanyard with a key holder so you carry your keys around your neck; any secret key holder which can attach magnetically under the van; have a mug made up with Kedron on it; a lightweight melamine nibbles tray; a knife guard to protect sharp knives in the drawer. Is that helpful?
