the weekend of Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August 2022
Wow, what a meet. Nineteen
trailer/caravans in all. Fantastic to see all the happy faces. Some new some we
have known for ages.
The weather was just beautiful, lovely sunny days and chilly nights, perfect for
a campfire and rug up for a warm snug sleep. There was the usual banter around
the camp both day and night, why does that not surprise me. Mind you there were
some really nice conversations.
A pair of Tawny Frogmouths were spotted, my favourite bird, wise old things,
they knew there was too much noise so left next day. There was also an echidna
spotted. Lostock has such an array of beautiful fauna. Funny thing I’ve never
seen a kangaroo. Wonder why.
Barry and Margie along with Anita and John were the first to arrive on the
Thursday; we had a really lovely quite night chatting till late. It was a nice
A few folk drove past us, not realising we were not camping in the Ulti, we were
in fact in our new caravan, Tess our Viscount was on show. Lots of ohs’ and ahs’
thank you we think so.
The happy hour went well, once again lots of laughter. The quiz! I was accused
from being evil to educational, I take both as compliments. My hope is that is
if you do happen to go to one of the places mentioned; you might pause awhile
and think about the meaning of that town. Or indeed you may now think about new
towns in a different way. From the feedback I received it was enjoyable and lead
to much discussion around the campfire. That is the aim.
I must say it would be super nice if we did get more campertrailers to a meet,
taking into consideration the number being sold every day.
Barry advised campers of the ill health of Lee Featherstone, there was a card
available for well wishes. Come on Lee, there is a lot more camping for you to
do, so get well soon.
Cheers everyone, hope to see you all next meet Walcha here we come.
