    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.

    LOVE STORY

    I will seek and find you. I shall take you to bed, and have my way with you. I will make you ache, shake and sweat until you moan and groan. I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop. I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you. And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days. All my love, The Flu P.S. Now, stop thinking about sex, all you senior citizens, and go get your flu shot!

    Where are you right now?

    Thanks Chris, We wanted a photo of the car and van on the ferry, however you are not to leave the vehicle (I got told!!) I think Clive did a good job taking the selfie as we were against the railing, he had to contend with mirrors and the weather shield. it has been a good trip, looking forward to heading to Bendeela tomorrow. Cheers,

    Where are you right now?

    We are sitting behind the Wiseman Ferry Bowls Club tonight. Last night we stayed behind the Wollombi Tavern, what a great little town. When we arrived the local markets were on, of course we went for a walk around them. Route 33 is a favourite for motor bike riders and the tavern is a popular stop along with the classic vehicles that call in. It was a people and vehicle watching day for us. Left there this morning and while we didn’t have any bike traffic (actually we had no traffic) I can understand why they like the road, hilly and winding, but very pretty drive. We boarded the oldest operational vehicle Ferry in Australia to cross the Hawkesbury River. Tomorrow we will be in a caravan park to do the washing and resupply before we head off to Bendeela, Kangaroo Valley for the KOG gathering. Wollombi Tavern campingWollombi Tavern

    No, they are not unfortunately. We did tell them about KOG and tried, Clive even wore his KOG shirt and name tag at drinks. They were even unaware of the Facebook page. this place is lovely, just been for a walk and watched the sunrise. πŸ‘πŸ‘
