CAMPS at Theebine Hotel, Queensland

Isn’t everyday Valentine’s Day when you’re camping?

I don’t know about you, but each time we have the chance to camp away – it makes the heart grow fonder, doesn’t it?  Whether it is the back-to-nature vibe, fireside chats, the early nights, lack of TV (by choice for us) or the nip of port…I don’t know. But it doesn’t matter, camping is not only good for the soul, I think it is good for relationships. Please note: I am not talking about navigational crises or reversing! So good, we planned a Tassie getaway last year for our 25th wedding anniversary last year. Unfortunately, state borders made it impossible.

Come on our Outback Adventure

The Camps crew at Long Waterhole, Winton – QLD site 486 in Camps 10 It’s always good, but bad, when you return home from a trip! Good to have our big bed back, more clothes to choose from, and see family and friends again – the pets were thrilled to see us, too. It is lovely slipping back into the familiar again BUT I’ll miss not knowing where our stop is for the night, simple meals eaten under the stars, zero housework and although we were researching more than holidaying, it was such a remedy to all the COVID changes.

Camps Researchers on the Road: Leisa

Leisa has been with us since 2009, as our Technology and Marketing PA.  She handles the design and distribution of the Camps Newsletter that Heatley and I write for you each fortnight and she is also one of our teams’ web designers and created our current app website.
