Welcome Peter,
Good to hear from another of the colonies. As mentioned above, since most of us will never be able to make the trip there, pictures of your rig and travel spots will be kindly received.

G'Day Jacko!

What's a litre of petrol worth these days, mate!

I did about 40K with Britz several years ago over a 4 month period....doing re-locations...they actually paid me to see the country! I was like a steel ball in a pinball machine....white line fever!

Where are you now...and where are you headed....?

Keep us posted....Cheers!

Hello everyone been awhile between posts but here we go.

Just to back track Feb 2011 Valentines day we collected our Coachmen. The year started with a stint working in Whyalla at the steelworks on the Blast Furnace upgrade, and then up the road a bit to Port Augusta to work on a coal fired Power Station shutdown. All this living in our Coachmen and loving it. After the Work bit we Played. That is visited the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, towns like Quorn, Hawker, Jamestown. The photos are Xmas 2011 at Port Hughes caravan park on Yorke Peninsula SA.

Here in the states we have a large company, KOA, that has campgrounds all over the United States.

Do you have a similar group of campgrounds all across you country?
