    Best Generator to take on Kimberly's Trip?

    We sold our generator last year for similar reasons as Pete has said. The extra room, weight, fuel that it took was not worth it. Even when it is hot we rarely use our air conditioner as it is far too noisy. Love our 12 volt fans. Over the years we have gone back to basic caravanning. Two solar panels, two batteries, 3 way fridge, no washing machine. We probably spend 20 weeks a year travelling, last year was 27weeks. Clive

    Senior years

    THE OLDER I GET, THE MORE I HAVE IN COMMON WITH COMPUTERS. WE BOTH START WITH LOTS OF MEMORY AND DRIVE, THEN BECOME OUTDATED, UNEXPECTEDLY, AND EVENTUALLY HAVE TO HAVE OUR PARTS REPLACED!

    New Members

    Welcome to the group, I’m sure you will have many hours of enjoyment with your Keddy, no matter what your tow vehicle is (providing all your tow weights etc are legal). Some of our members tow with Iveco, Mercedes, Isuzu, Nissan, Fords, Chevy etc, personally we tow with a Nissan Y62. Hope to catch up with you somewhere in this great country. Sandra and Clive

    2019 Christmas Gathering & AGM

    Last night we stayed at the Kilkivan Bush Camp. It was so lovely. Update, the pool is open. Remember to bring your swimmers. Also they are in the process of adding a coffee shop and kiosk next to the office.
  5. Is there anyone in the group planning to attending this weekend? If so I will make it an official KOG gathering. Sandra

  8. At the AGM / Christmas gathering last weekend members showed interest in this up coming event. I would love to show you the pretty picture, however not being computer literate, I just can't do it.

    Caravan batterys both warped

    Yes Kevin, agree with Grahame, time to get two new batteries. We had to replace the two batteries (3yrs and 2mths use) in our van earlier this year. They were working fine, pulled up for an overnight camp on the Plenty highway and had no power at all. Couldn’t pump water, flush the toilet, light the stove and of course no lights. Had to revert to manual mode. I might also add the ALL the batteries in the van died that day, ie smoke detector, torches, blood glucose monitor and hearing aid batteries. We laugh about it and said the Min Min lights out of Boulia got us. When we arrived in Alice Springs we dropped the van off at the auto elects and we went went for new batteries. $$$ The joys of caravanning.

    Christmas gathering and present

    Hello Tony and Irene, In the past we have received a book, chopping board and vegetable knife, both which have been well received. We also have received other gifts that have not been so useful or enjoyable. As some live in their vans, space is also an issue. I personally always enjoy something we can eat or drink. 🍷🍷🍫πŸ₯œπŸΎ Look forward to meeting you and all other members attending. Cheers, Sandra and Clive

    2019 Uluru & Alice Springs Trip

    Thank you for that great report. We have stayed at some of the places mentioned and really enjoyed our trip through that area a couple of years back. Can thoroughly recommend the Oodnadatta Track.πŸ‘

    Info Required

    Hi, heading east from Cunnamulla there is Charlotte Plains camp. It has an artesian bore. Have not been there but it is on the bucket list. We have stayed at the free camp at Bollon which is on the river. if you are passing through Glen Morgan there is a great little motor museum, worth a stop and a browse. Meandarra further east is another great free camp and has a great military museum. Cheers, Sandra and Clive (will have to catch up again when we get back home)

    "Wish you were here" Photo Folder

    Well, really not a photo to use, but we have had a good day here at Port Dennison. The sun was shining all day, the van is a little cleaner, van maintenance and the washing has been done. Had a lovely fish dinner (caught off Broome), didn’t catch anything today, now trying to keep warm. My well dressed husband having coffee and eating chocolate. Life is good πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Tanami track

    Welcome to the group. We didn’t do the Tanami but cut across on the Buchanan highway. It was good, except thought the Gregory NP, it was a bit rough. We tow a XC with a Patrol and had no problems. If you are heading for Broome (we are here now, parked next to another Kedron) . Two overnight spots I can recommend, Mary Pools, and Lake Ellendale, both are on Wiki Camps.
