  1. Yes Barry, there were other comments made, and generally they were innocuous. But one comment leads to another, and next thing we have a bun fight. Best we leave them to our own social media accounts. Thanks for being understanding.
  2. I have been an Administrator on other forums over the years and can say that some of the biggest arguments will be over politics or religion. We need to respect each others’ views on such topics, by refraining from posting political material. Any overtly political material posted on this forum will be deleted. Our Guidelines state: The following types of posts are not acceptable. Defamatory or libellous. Offensive language or sexual content. Personal abuse or unpleasantness. Incitement of racial hatred or other activities illegal under Australian law. Promotion of other sites in a way that might be expected to result in financial disadvantage to the Kedron Owners Group Committee, its Members and Forum Moderators. (Posts that promote competitor sites in a low key, friendly and responsible manner may sometimes be accepted by prior arrangement with the Kedron Owners Group Committee and Forum Moderators.) Promotion of any 'get rich quick' schemes or email solicitations to join such schemes. Unpaid advertisements or spam. Irrelevant or off-topic posts such as political or religious rhetoric. Posts not covered by any of the above, but deemed clearly inappropriate by the Forum Moderators.
  3. Look, I do have a sense of humour, but I am tired of the bashing Labor jokes. If I posted a joke about Morrison or the state of the (decimated) Liberals, I wonder how that would go down? Let’s have less political jokes.
  4. It looks like a lovely van, and I hope you have no problems finding a new home for it. Where are you located in the NT? We are currently in Katherine and about to move on to Pine Creek.
  5. Our DC to DC unit (Redarc) is a fair age now and needs to be replaced soon. What brand do others on this site recommend? Redarc is a great brand of course, but expensive…. And yes, I know you get what you pay for. But it would be good to know if there are suitable alternatives.
  6. Tony, thanks for posting this. It could be so worthwhile to have this assistance. What a creative business idea. chris
  7. Hello fellow forumites. I almost forgot to post my final trip report. This one covers that final saunter home from Innamincka, through the Clare Valley and before that the Flinders Ranges. I wish I was still out there…. Stage 5 Innamincka to Home.pdf
  8. Another trip report! This one covers the section of our trip from central Queensland to Innamincka in SA's far North West. I hope you all enjoy reading it. Stage 4 Carnarvon to Innamincka.pdf
  9. I have always said the great value of this forum is that it is a repository of wisdom and full of accumulated information. Plus trip reports are put up here!
  10. Hi everyone. Our current trip continues and we have now arrived further inland. It has been cool but not cold - just perfect. This trip report covers the area between Kilkivan to Carnarvon Gorge, and includes Maryborough and Bundaberg. I hope its informative! Chris

  12. ...and here is the latest trip report. It covers the area between Eumungerie (Northern NSW) to Kilkivan (QLD). In this report we catch up with a few fellow Kedronners and camp in some lovely spots. Stage 2 Eumungerie to Kilkivan.pdf
  13. my favourite dish is the veal scallopine a la funghi (or something close to this spelling 😁).
  14. We are really relaxed now!
  15. We are camped at a fellow Kedronners’ property near Kilkivan, and have a view to die for. Thanks Rod and Jewel!!
  16. I love the Red Centre and have enjoyed many trips there over the years. And we once worked at Utopia Station, out along the Sandover Hwy, but that’s another story for another time. in years to come you will be able to laugh about all this, Tony and Annie. But for the time being you at least have the comfort of the van and a car to get around. Good luck with getting the transmission rebuilt. In the meantime, there is a magic restaurant across in East side, which locals know and love. Casa Nostra. Book before going as it’s very popular with locals.
  17. Great, thanks Karen!
  18. For those of us travelling and keen to get their vaccinations while on the road, I have successfully used the below link. It is an interactive website which allows you to enter some basic information on eligibility first then to find a site near you, or at a specific location where you can get your jab. https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility Before there are any arguments on the merits of the vaccination, I am not advocating whether you should or should not be vaccinated. The information is purely for those who want to use it. I do have a view about vaccinations but this is not the place for that debate.
  19. As some forum items might know, we are travelling from SA to QLD, and mostly camping along the way. Right now we are at one of the loveliest campgrounds you could ever see, Weddin Mountains NP, called Ben Hall’s Cave. The campground is nestled into the mountain range, and is very scenic. Facilities are limited to a drop toilet, and table/chairs at each site. Sites are well spaced, with pine trees and vegetation adding extra privacy. It is free to camp here (yes, really) but there is a one-off $6 booking fee. Phone reception is patchy but doable. This spot is on one of our “Best 10 campgrounds” list. Actually, it may be on our top 5 list….
  20. We are now at Hay, NSW. We are going to the RSL for dinner (they have great Chinese food!) and camping down on the Murrumbidgee just on the outskirts of town. Our camp site has its own QR code to check in! Most spots seem to have one, sited on a little white pole. Before leaving home I downloaded every state’s QR code and have them ready as we cross borders. A lass at the Balranald supermarket said this morning that she didn’t think NSW was using QR codes …. Moral of that story is not to take advice on QR code readers from checkout staff. The cafe certainly required it to checked in.
  21. This is a great article on an iconic trek which many of us have done. But it’s a good resource anyway. the-great-central-road-drive-from-laverton-to-uluru-with-a-caravan.html
  22. 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...😄
  23. No, I hadn’t seen that! The poor new owners... Thanks Sandra.
  24. 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. This includes if you are travelling — even in a different state.Your first dose of the vaccine will be recorded in the Australian Immunisation Register, so your vaccination provider will be able check which vaccine you received (to make sure your second dose is the same) and when you received that first dose (to make sure the recommended time has passed).To be fully vaccinated, you must have two doses of the same vaccine, given at the appropriate dosing schedule.If you get the Pfizer vaccine, you'll need 2 doses, administered 21 days apartIf you get the AstraZeneca vaccine, you'll need 2 doses, administered 4 to 12 weeks apartIf you received a COVID-19 vaccine while you were overseas, only a recognised vaccination provider in Australia can add your details to the Australian Immunisation Register.You will need to provide your vaccination documents in English. If they are not in English, you will need to get them translated.You can keep up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccine developments on the Australian Department of Health website, including priority groups and who will receive the first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and how the COVID-19 vaccines will be distributed.You can use the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility checker to find out when you can receive a COVID-19 vaccine.You can also:Download the official Government ‘Coronavirus Australia’ app in the Apple app store or Google Play; orJoin the WhatsApp channel on iOS or Android.If you need to speak to someone, the National Coronavirus Helpline is also available on 1800 020 080. It operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.Kind regards,COVID-19 Vaccine Enquiries Team"
  25. I am wondering if any members are travelling between states in the near future, or far from home, and have to organise their COVID vaccinations somewhere other than home. We will have had our first jabs here at home in SA, but in June, when the second is due, we plan to be far from home. Probably QLD. Anyone had similar queries?
