Brand New Campers



Ok the "Doll"s all packed, we have Sat Nav which has been a godsend, now all we have to do is get to our first camp site and set up camp. We are heading north to Bowen first, we want to see if can catch up with Michele the lady we meet in Sulawesi when we were travelling with Lee earlier in the year.

Bowen is about 1300 kms from Brisbane so we expect to take 3 driving days, maybe staying a day or so at each camp site to explore the area along the way.

Our first stop will be Elliot Heads, a camp site on the coast and near Bundaberg where there they make Bundaberg Rum, a tour we just may have to take.

The journey was good no problems and we made good time. The average speed limit on the A or motorway roads is 100 kms , the roads are fairly quiet and the 400 km journey took us an hour less that the Sat Nav had calculated.

We had to stop on the way to get provisions and we stocked up for the next 2 days.

Got to the camp site and although one little divorce,, { although that was probably due to Phyllis opening the wine and drinking it from a coffee mug, and in those quantities} we managed to get the tent up everything organised and were cooking Dinner with in an hour and a half of our arrival.

We had a lovely big pitch, facing the evening sun, and near the shower block. The facilities were really clean I would be quite comfortable using them.

Now to test the bed's, we had bought fold up camp beds, so let’s see what they are like. Night   Night…..
