    Looks lovely, but I'd have to take the Midget along for entertainment.

    Thanks, the next one will be on Burma, I'm on the road next week.

    I'd take my Camper but the excess luggage could be a tad steep.

    Great thread, west australia is beautiful except when its hot.I was in the wheatbelt last winter and the cold nights and warm days were magnificent.The sky is the purest blue and at night there are millions of stars.
    And the fishing is spectacular.

    Congrats Terry, nice little setup you got going now. I agree tent camping is ok but to be able to sleep in a decent bed and walk around without crawling out of a tent is way better. That bike sure looks a lot like the old Honda Trail 90, I used to have one of those, loaded bikes in the pickup truck, hooked the camper on and away we'd go. Great times and good memories. Good on ya mate!

    Great photos Terry. And an interesting rig you have.
    I'm going to be camping regularly with the missus in the near future, but I'm seriously considering getting a van and converting it into a campervan myself. I'd get a roll-out awning for starters. A van is a bit easier to set up on site. And I like the freedom of being able to move the thing according to where the shade is, or if yobbos come along. We had a bad sleep one night because of that, and because we were in a tent we couldn't just move at midnight. Maybe I'll just start with a station wagon. My mate is selling his very well maintained Mitsubishi Magna wagon soon.
    Looking forward to seeing your Autumn camping pics.

    I'm going to fit an awning on the side of my camper and ditch the tarp, save fitting all the support poles and messing around.

    My van sets up in two minutes but that side tarp takes a fair bit of time and pissing around.

    Ok when the weathers fine but when its raining not so flash.

    Good luck with it mate. Having a van is bloody brilliant.

    I would do the same Terry, trailer / campers are the nuts, I used to cart a caravan around. too heavy and the modern trailer units have it all.

    True but the trailer can be left set up for a few days while you explore the area by car.

    Or you could get one of Terry's postie bikes and hang it on the back of your camper for local wheels.

    The awning makes a world of difference. Here's a pic of my old one.

    Great area for camping round Nannup. Me and mates used to go the down river side of Nannup, off Mowen rd. Used to get our bag limit of marron during the day, and a belly full of piss in the evening.
    Good to hear you clear the ground to have a fire.
    Was talking with the wife about getting a camper similar to let the kids experience the bush.

    Those multi voltage - gas fridges cost a packet. You paid how much for the lot??

    nicer feel to them, more flexible, more fun

    some camp sites are tent only, which is good, much nicer people in tents

    sounds bad, but for some reason it is true
