  1. Today we travelled from Julia Creek to Winton, and are camped out on the Long Waterhole.  It is super busy, so we abandoned any thought of a water view and went straight for a spot among shrubs and bushes.  Peaceful down here.

     

    We see another Kedron up there on the hill…Phil and Gail.

  2. We are on the waterhole at the Julia Creek RV freecamp.  It’s to a lovely spot and the sites on the water are popular.  We managed to snaffle one and set up camp only metres from the water’s edge.  We are here for 4 days.

    Across the water is another Kedron with Royce and Sue from Tasmania.  We told them about our plans to go to the fabulous hot springs At Yowah, and they told us for their plans to go to a rodeo at Saxby.  I have never heard of Saxby but hopefully it will be great.

  3. We are now just over the QLD border from the NT on our slow way home, and camping on the Camooweal Billabong.  We chose the bottom billabong, as it’s less crowded.  At a guess it’s 3 kms from the main highway to the bottom pool
     

    What a great spot.  Lots of bird life, including egrets, whistling kites, a black swan, etc.

    This is a popular spot and by late afternoon all spots near us are taken.  But no one is too close.

     

    The road in is a bit chopped up (they had recent rains, now dried out) but nothing we couldn’t handle with ease. I imagine it could get a bit dusty here but after the recent rains it is nice and fresh,

     

    In town is a good water point and dump point, so if approaching from the East, fill up before going out to the waterholes.

     

    And a bonus, last night we met up with other Kedronites who are on the forum, Liz and Gary Woods.  It was great to chat!

    Enerdrive is our choice Chris.....great performance & great backup if required

    I can’t believe I didn’t reply to this post, Tony, and thank you for it.  Our unit is still going OK but will keep this in mind for the inevitable moment which will be soon I fear.

    Hi Chris

    There were a lot of politically oriented jokes circulating as the election was the flavour of the the 6 weeks, and many seemed to have a particular focus or bias.

    Since early December last only 3 political jokes have been posted.

    If and when I post in future, I will endeavour to not select jokes with topics that some may find offensive, and that might be difficult task.

    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.

  6. 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.
  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
