couple nights away


me, the boss and 2 dogs.

first night we spent in an old mining town that has all the infrastructure removed but still has curb and gutting and lawns maintained by the wildlife. We were the only campers in the area, just magic.

Second night was sorta central tassie with 18 other campers. 80% of them where young backers. Some had been there a week, others a few nights. There was not a single bit of rubbish in the whole campsite. There is no bins or amenities of any sort there. What a wonderful group of young people

Now home and have a country music muster (grey nomads every where)

First off coming home I had some dickhead overtake me (I was doing 90kmh), which I didnt have a problem with( apart from sitting about 5 foot behind me prior too), but on the overtaking lane, dick for brains went past and when the vehicle was past he cut back in on me and very nearly took the front off the coaster.

Haven't look my self yet but I have been very reliable informed that blackwater tanks have been emptied down the river bank ( the dump point is just across the river) as well as grey water hoses run into the river

Give me the solo camping and backpackers any day of the week

cheers

blaze

ps

I can hear ya saying not all are like that, I know that but too many are

Gotta agree with you re crowds when camping...the fewer the better for me.

Can't escape dickheads on the road....plenty out there.

Maybe council rangers should be out in that area where they are dumping illegally and fine the mongrels.

The habit of cutting in too soon seems to be common up the eastern seaboard. Had it done to me many times including one young lady who wasn't even past the front of the Ranger before she attempted to move into my space. Despite me being somewhat insistent on the horn she had three goes before pulling in front of me right under my bull bar and promptly shot off down an off ramp. There was nothing behind me so why she didn't pull in behind the van and then exit instead of trying desperately to kill herself and possibly us as well is beyond me.

Because they *have* to be in front of you Greg.

In the profession of animal ranger including litter officer I can say I could never catch litterers red handed. However many leave a bank statement or evidence that leads to prosecution.
