For camping at the site, is there limited spots or a bit more layed back than that-find some flat ground and throw down a tent? Just asking cause I am not sure if I will make it, very keen, but won't know till it gets a lot closer and therefore can't really go booking accomodation. I would even be happy sleeping on a verandah if there was one available, as long as I am dry I am normally happy

Steve, can you pass on to Godfrey that I will be camping in a camper and plug in with 240v would be good.

Flights are booked, just need to book the camper.

Steve,

Re the camping grounds....what amenities are there? Showers, toilets etc.

I am considering camping this year (hope it aint as cold this year!) to join in the festivities and wasnt sure what the deal was with camping at Godfrey's.

Any details would be appreciated.

Showers, toilets and Kitchen facilities plus BBQ and WIFI internet,plus swimming pool is all there . Didnt think it was all that cold though ,although that may have been the beer, Plenty of room for the big campfire to.

Wind chill

I didn't think it was cold at all down at the camp. There was a wind chill factor up on the mountain while we were flying though. After all it was late winter, and the wind was westerly.

Trick with tomatoes is you are supposed to drop your daks and sit on the dirt. When it's no longer cold on your but cheeks, plant away. No one would bat an eyelid seeing you do that in Bondi anyway

Frequency registration.

Steve and others,

Do you think the frequency registration on page 1 of last year's thread is worth repeating? I think it was useful, as some advance indication of any others turning up operating on the same frequency is notified. How about we do it again?

That as well as the peg board. Just to be sure, to be sure.

Jim.
