Arriving at camp on Thursday arvo were Jim, Karen & Jay, shortly followed by Kris, Flip, Dayne and Kris’s parents.
We set up camp, had dinner and settled in for a quiet night around the fire.
Friday morning after breakfast, we headed into town for the ANZAC Day Service, after which we returned to camp for lunch and a relaxing afternoon.
Friday arvo saw the arrival of little Rod and Heather who were quick to set up and join us around the fire for some refreshments.
Saturday morning we were joined by Brad and he boys and after they pitched their tent we headed out for a morning drive.
We went through the creeks out the back of the camp ground at up one of our favourite tracks that goes up and up and up. Pleased to say the testing of the auto pilot in the FJ worked a treat.
After reaching the top we proceeded to do the loop and headed down Black Hut Rd which was quite an easy run, by which time we headed back to camp for lunch.
After lunch the girls headed into town for the coffee fix and some shopping while we went out to the tracks leading to the bee hives.
With only 3 cars we decided to try out a few of the harder up hill tracks for a bit of fun, then we pocked our noses into a couple of tracks to see what we could find. One track bought back memories of a recovery and another, saw little Rod try to become a mountain goat only to have to put his revering skills down hill to the test.
After this we headed back to camp just as the girls were returning and the arrival of Barry and Stef.
Saturday night saw a number of camp ovens in use and a lot of fun and a late night around the fire that saw Heather oobly dooblied Kris as he fell asleep in his chair.
Sunday was a late start, and we did a reveres of Saturday mornings drive as well as head out to the fire tower and the lookout above the dam, then back to camp for the pack up and goodbyes, as we all headed home after a very relaxing weekend.
