  Upper Colo Reserve weekend

 upper colo reserve weekend

Saturday 17th to Sunday 18th March, 2012


A little rain didnít dampen the enthusiasm of the forty camper trailer owners who attended the CamperTrailers Groupís Upper Colo Reserve weekend get together near Richmond NSW hosted by Rob & Carol for their forth consecutive year. Those that arrived on the Friday were greeted by temperatures in the mid thirties, however after the change during the night, Saturday dawned with showers that lasted all day which definitely was not a solar panel day. After one of the wettest summers on record, there was little doubt it would rain at some time over the weekend.


The Colo River was higher than previous years & we were lucky to have the weekend as scheduled owning to heavy flooding rain in the weeks leading up to the event. This had put serious doubts on the weekend being held & possibly postponed to another time.

It was great to catch up with all our old CamperTrailers friends as well as meet the members who were attending their first weekend. While most wandered around the reserve looking over the camper trailers & the modifications that had been done to make camping life all the more enjoyable, others sat under awnings chatting & staying dry.


Saturday afternoon happy hour was held undercover in the shelter which was just large enough to accommodate everyone out of the drizzle.  


Luckily the cloud lifted to sunshine on Sunday which gave the canvas time to dry before pack up time. Unfortunately those that stayed on for another night had a wet canvas to take home to dry.


Highlight of the weekend would have to be the koala that was spotted in a nearby tree by Sue. He was not camera shy & seemed to soak up the attention posing like the icon he is. 

The CamperTrailers Group's weekends are a great way to meet the face behind the typing. Members without a camper are more than welcome to come along & get a first hand unbiased opinion of a particular camper trailer from their owners. You might meet as complete strangers on the Friday evening, but will part old friends such is the camaraderie.
