  1. The Brothel Parrot . . . A woman went to a pet shop where she immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00. 'Why so little,' she asked the pet store owner. The owner looked at her and said, 'Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, so it says some pretty vulgar stuff.' The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird any way. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something. The bird looke

  2. Yesterday we were travelling on the Western Fwy into Brisbane. Minding our own business, enjoying the drive towards the ‘factory’ we heard a noise from under the bonnet and an unusual smell through the dash vents. Moments later I lost the power assist from the steering and brakes.........luckily there was a verge on the roadside that we could make a hasty ‘safe’ stop. Upon stopping, after opening the bonnet, I found that the A/C compressor had seized & thrown/destroyed the serpentine drive belt resulting in loss of steering & braking assist. Being a member of NRMA I rang the

  5. AN OLDER LADY An older lady headed to the bank to make a withdrawal. She handed her bank card to a bank cashier and said, “I would like to withdraw $10. The cashier told her, “For withdrawals less than $100 please use the ATM.” The old lady wanted to know why… The cashier returned her bank card and irritably told her, “These are the rules. Please leave if there is no other matter. There is a line of customers behind you.” The old lady remained silent for a few seconds, then handed the card back to the cashier and said, “Please help me withd

  6. OK, from another forum (Caravaners forum) where a member there pretty much asked the Federal Government responsible agency the same question. He got a response which said: "Thank you for contacting the Australian Government Department of Health.You don’t have to get your second dose at the same location.

  7. Sandra, you guys are probably experts and able to guide the rest of us! Our plans are to come North from SA, leaving here in May and arriving around Brisbane about mid June. The places we love around QLD (in no particular order) are Lake Tinaroo (Atherton Tablelands); Sandstone Park at Carnarvon Gorge, Lawn Hill, Lake Wivenhoe near Esk, Lara Wetlands.... Many of these may be visited this year. Of course, we do prefer the remoter regions too... We might see you out there!

  8. As a butcher is shooing a dog from his shop, he sees $15 and a note in his mouth, reading: "10 lamb chops, please." Amazed, he takes the money, puts a bag of chops in the dog's mouth, and quickly closes the shop. He follows the dog and watches him wait for a green light, look both ways, then trot across the road to a bus-stop. The dog checks the timetable and sits on the bench. When a bus arrives, he walks around to the front and looks at the number, then boards the bus. The butcher follows, dumbstruck. As the bus travels out into the suburbs, the dog takes in the scenery.

  9. Merry Christmas to you too Tony & Annie, It will be a very sad day when you step down as I believe you have done an exceptional job, but also understand the need to move on. I would like to thank you for your mammoth effort in a job well done. You will be missed. We will always in touch. We are currently in Yungngora in the Kimberley WA but are about to head back to Maningrida in Arnhem Land in 2 weeks for a 5 week stint before heading back to Kalumburu in the Kimberley again for 5-6 weeks. Then we will be back home for a month before we head off again. Have a gre

  11. We are at Onkaparinga’s Pink Gums campground for a couple of nights. It is right on the edge of the McLaren Vale wine region, and not that far from the city. But it feels nice and peaceful. There are 11 sites in all but not all fit a caravan of our size. Most do, though.. We are nicely settled in, as you can see.

Handles very well towing and on its own. No or little body roll is felt .We also have installed torque converter and a chip . Towing around 3.6 t we are getting around 19 lt per 100 sitting on 100 klm per hour. But around town 15 so not much different. That’s the only downside I recon . John

  13. As we live in SA, where are (theoretically) no COVID-19 cases, we are free to travel intrastate. So we headed first to the Flinders a few weeks ago. And then we travelled to the Gawler Ranges NP. We came out from the park earlier today. What spectacular country! I didn’t imagine it could be so special. Gorgeous goldS and reds In the Ranges, and interesting foliage. We had the best camp site in the best campground in the whole park, I think. We camped at Yandinga campground. It can accommodate up to 9 camp groups, according to the booking website. The sites are la

  14. Situated on the shores of Lake Alexandrina, probably an hour or so from Adelaide, this lovely free campground is a very special spot. It’s at S35 50 05 E139 2 46. Near Milang, it is accessed via a 10km gravel road, of which 2km is a bit ordinary. No facilities here whatsoever, just lots of peaceful beauty. Mind you it’s the school holidays starting tomorrow...😄

Hi at the Kilvkivan gathering several people asked for Rod's corn bread recipe, so I have also copied it to this page. http://recipetineats.com/cornbread-recipe/ This lady is a gem for good food recipe's This is quick and easy and an ordinary baking dish does the trick although the stated cast iron pan gives a crispier bottom. Corn meal is called polenta in Aussie shops and readily available. Cheers from the Kyd's I was also asked for my lemon slice recipe Lemon Coconut Slice Ingredients Makes: 18 squares

  20. Keep your eye on the 'Sale' section of the forum something might pop up there. Also on the Facebook Kedron page sometimes has vans. Read, read, read. It will all start to make some sense. Make sure it has a diesel heater. Toyotas are certainly the way to go for a car.

  22. A month or two ago we visited the Gawler Ranges NP in the far North of SA’s Eyre Peninsula. We are back again, although not in the national park itself. This area is blessed with granite outcrops known as Inselbergs, similar to those in WA. Where we are camped is at Pildappa Rock, not far from Minnipa. Pildappa is very similar to Wave Rock near Hayden WA. It has the same characteristic “flare” which distinguishes the rock feature. And the weather is wonderful!

  26. As intrastate travel is now allowed within South Australia, we have already done one trip (to the Flinders Ranges) and are now ready to again go to another nice SA national park campground. Well, we hope its nice, as we have never been there before... The trouble is, we have to book and pay before going, and there is no phone reception up there. The Gawler ranges are in the Northern area of the Eyre Peninsula, near Wudinna. First we are going to the little town of Laura, where the Golden North ice cream is made (no that is NOT why we are going there). We want to see

Apart from a late arrival, another caravan, we are the only ones here. $15 for power and water. And a magic meal at the local hotel.

  29. Thanks for this advice Tolley. (You all understand this further advice comes from Val...I am a technical twit). Val says he does a full lube and check of all the nuts and bolts in the suspension and adjusts the brakes. Then about every 10,000 kms he does a lube job (greasing things) and again checks tightness in all the bolts. He does regular checks of hoses and connections under and around the van. It is valuable to discuss these issues, especially for newer members and van owners who may not realise what is needed or how often.

Hi All, We recently purchased a 2009 Top Ender (KC01012) which so far appears to be in pretty good condition (except for an annoying leak in the rear bathroom lift up basin system!!) and are currently getting it ready with additional solar etc.. for some local QLD touring initially, and then hopefully for a lap of Australia next. Our past interests have mainly been sailing, fishing, diving and travel and we recently returned to Brisbane after spending three years sailing our yacht (Island Pearl) around the world from Brisbane and back again after experiencing some exotic and amazin

  36. Hi I'm a previous Kedron owner and am considering the purchase of the single axle Compact, but, due to Covid and the subsequent lack of product shows, I've been unable to view any product. I'm from the West, so a factory visit is difficult and expensive. Just wondering if there may be a recent model compact owner in Southern WA that would consider me being able to view their van. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

For the past couple of weeks I have delayed this announcement, really hoping that we (all of Australia & the rest of the world) could see an end to this wretched COVID-19 virus. With the continuing cases in Victoria & NSW, closed QLD borders and severe quarantine/travel restrictions, we (the executive) have agreed that the proposed gathering at Kilkivan cannot go ahead in a safe manner like it has over the past few years. It is with GREAT reluctance that I have to inform you that the proposed

Hi Tony With the uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation and with the changing border restrictions, we certainly agree with Management Committee decision to cancel the AGM and the November gathering. We were to travel to South Australia for a Beccy Cole tour with her Aussie Road Crew, and we have had to cancel that. We live with uncertain times ahead, but “we’ll meet again some sunny day”.
