Product review – Auspit

Product review – Auspit

There are a lot of camp cooking gimmicks floating around people’s 4WDs, caravan boots or lost somewhere in the shed. Plenty of them get used a few exciting times before the passion wears off or failure wins and you revert back to a grill plate over the fire, barbeque or just the stove in the [...]

You know you’re a caravanner when…

You know you’re a caravanner when…

You have an innate ability to remember boom gate codes at a single glance. You still think feet and inches is an acceptable unit of measurement You run out of something from pantry and go, “It’s okay, I think we have some in the van” You pull out of the caravan park and toss a [...]

Travel – Elite Caravans at Robe, SA

Travel – Elite Caravans at Robe, SA

This isn’t what you’d expect. I’m in Robe on the beautiful southeast coast of South Australia. I’m up early, waiting for the sun to rise while the pinks and purples of that pre-dawn glow promise it will be special. Back at camp, everyone is still asleep, or at least still inside, looking for the coffee [...]

Caravan Review – Swift Explorer 564

Caravan Review – Swift Explorer 564

Some say they are just not built for Australian roads. That’s fair enough, but what if we take roads out of the equation? The lifted Explorer 564 is one of Swift’s most exciting new releases, which the Australian arm says is ready for a little bit of off-road caravan adventure. A look under the floor [...]

Offroad Caravan Review – Kimberley Kruiser S

Offroad Caravan Review – Kimberley Kruiser S

If there is a more sophisticated off-road caravan built anywhere in the world, I’d be very surprised. Since being purchased by technophile Bruce Loxton, the already popular Kimberley Kampers brand has been at the forefront of camper and caravan technology – first innovating how much power can be carried in a camper, then transforming how [...]

The surf today

The surf today

I didn’t go out – I swear it’s because I split my face open at footy training and the nurse said not to get it wet. It’s certainly not because I was scared just watching it. Big day, though. Biggest in a while. I had fun photographing it, mostly early this morning. [...]

Tiger’s Semi Final

Tiger’s Semi Final

The Northern Districts Tigers Firsts team made it to the finals this year. It was a muddy old game and I was super jealous I couldn’t play. Serves me right for being no good at AFL, I suppose. Anyway, here’s a bunch of pictures. How good was Ondi’s scoop! If you’re a Tiger and want [...]

2013. A Review.

2013. A Review.

I had to go through the Camera Roll on my phone to get some sort of a clue about what has happened this year. It doesn’t feel like it was only a year ago that we welcomed in this one from our backyard. When I think back to it, I have to remember that Asher couldn’t [...]

The only way is up

The only way is up

In just under three weeks, myself and a few others will be embarking on a 225km bike ride – uphill. Starting at Tathra on NSW’s far south coast, we’ll be riding (almost) to the summit of Mt Kosciusko before walking the final 4km. I quite like riding, even riding up hills, but this is a [...]

River likes slides

River likes slides

The other night I realised we have a lot of video footage of River on slides. She seems to like them. Here’s a highlight reel. Until next time, Brendan, Angela, River and Asher [...]
