This month, all going well, we collect our new hybrid van. We sold the old one – as our boys are too long for the bunks! Our Mountain Trail RV 4.7 van sleeps two – the kids have their swags, now – and only the youngest is at home these days. Looking forward to our outdoor kitchen, easy towing and parking (that’s still Heatley’s domain for now).

It’s been a momentous couple of weeks since our last newsletter: our eldest graduated in Brisbane, our 21 year old had her first March out at the Defence Force Academy (ADFA) in Canberra, another left home for Armidale’s UNE, the youngest is now 16 plus Although we couldn’t see the parade at ADFA, we flew to Canberra, watched the livestream then made the most of Kate’s overnight leave. We always stay with my sister and family – so there were plenty of games, cards, Asian cuisine, markets and city shops on our weekend. I trekked up a mountain with my sister and friends, and Heatley walked around the lake with my brother in law. We love our Canberra visits (and the cooler weather), I’ll have to put together a list of our favourite things to do there! We’ve also had lovely emails from many of you, like this:

“Hi! Just received my Camps 11 and what a winner!!!! The new design reflects extensive research and a real acknowledgement of camping trends, like symbols for station stays, pub stays etc. Congratulations!” Fran

“Have just purchased your Camps 11 book. Wow. It is great and so different ( in a better way) than our Camps 6.” Daryl

“Just our opinion on Camps 11. Really big improvement on Camps 10 with updated sites. We were going to pass Camps 10 to daughter but after receiving our “11” just ordered one for them, it had so much more to offer.” John

Thanks everyone, please keep the feedback coming. Today we have a NT national park camp, two new pub stay listings in Tassie, a beautiful waterfall walk, plus a free camp in NSW and another in QLD!
