  1. Thank you Chris, you have done well. We have stayed in quite a few these sites, especially the WA last year. very much appreciated.
  2. Welcome to the group Andrea and Gary. Looking forward to catching up with you somewhere on the road. Ditto what Tony has said above. Sandra and Clive
  3. Oh no, just my luck. I put a post on the gathering section yesterday. Will just have to do it again later today. I noticed the pages were all over the place. Cheers, Sandra
  4. Have just completed the longest line of Rv’s for a world Guinness record. It was an amazing event with 934 vans and motor homes stretched over 9.3kms. We stayed out overnight on the Barcaldine Isisford road. It was a spectacular sight to see all the campfires and lights. Pity only three Kedron attended. Amazing.

    Longest Line

    Are there any Kedrons participating in “The Longest Line of RV’s” being held in Barcaldine 25th, 26th May? We are crazy enough to participate.

    Apple Slice

    Try this lovely Apple slice, easy to make with minimal ingredients. If you don't have an oven in your van I'm sure it could be cooked in the Webber. APPLE SLICE Base - 1 pkt vanilla or butter cake mix ( I use the generic brand ones from Woolworths or Coles) 1 cup coconut 125 gms melted butter Filling - 1 410gm tin pie apple Topping - 1 carton light sour cream Cinnamon Mix together Base ingredients and press into a greased 7"x11" tin, cook in a moderate oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and spread pie apple over the base, then spread sour cream over the apple and sprinkle with cinnamon. Return to oven and cook for a further 15 minutes. Slice when cold.
  7. 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
  8. 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 WE BOTH START WITH LOTS OF MEMORY AND DRIVE, THEN BECOME OUTDATED, UNEXPECTEDLY, AND EVENTUALLY HAVE TO HAVE OUR PARTS REPLACED!
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Is there anyone in the group planning to attending this weekend? If so I will make it an official KOG gathering. Sandra
  12. We would like to wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our Kedron Family. Enjoy what ever you will be doing and if travelling the roads, stay safe. We may catch up with some of you on the back roads in 2019. Cheers, Clive and Sandra
  13. Welcome to the Kedron Family. Merry Christmas to you both and what an exciting 2019 awaits you. Wishing you lots of safe travels and happy memories, hopefully we will meet you on the road somewhere or at a gathering. cheers, Clive and Sandra
  14. 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. It reads: RV'S FOR DROUGHT RELIEF Long Weekend of 25th - 28th January 2019 Caravan Fundraising Muster SHOWGROUND TEXAS (Qld) on the other side of the river it is NSW All funds raised by collection or donated to the Texas Lions Club are for distribution to local farmers as the Club sees fit. For more information or to RSVP, please join our FB Page RV's for the Drought or phone Christine on 0400 738 768 Powered sites $50 per van per night (Tax Deductible) Some of our members attended the muster that was held at Jandowae last October and had a great time. Hope to see a few Keddies in attendance at Texas.
  15. Getting excited, van is up next to the house and almost packed. Have packed the Christmas decorations and wine. Now all we need is good weather. No heatwaves and no rain please. see you all Thursday ?????
  16. 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.
  17. 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. ????? Look forward to meeting you and all other members attending. Cheers, Sandra and Clive
  18. 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.?
  19. 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)
  20. 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 ????
  21. 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.
  22. Welcome Chris, Congratulations and I’m sure you will have a lot of lovely adventures with your new van. Cheers, Sandra and Clive

    In Tasmania!

    Hope Rob and Jewel are behaving themselves, they can be a bit noisy, Ha Ha! say hello to them for us. Sandra and Clive
  24. Good photo, did you come over by the GCR and in through the back door, so to speak. Clive
  25. 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!
