Who loves a winter camp oven roast when outdoors? I don’t know about you, but it warms my belly just thinking about it! It’s the whole experience that I love, you know…. stoking the fire – creating some red hot coals – preparing the meat and pre-heating the camp oven ready to cook for the troops…

Camping at Inskip Point

The last time we camped at Inskip Point was around Easter 2015. It was our first time camping with another family who we didn’t really know too well – both families were brought together via our young girls who had become friends at school (I can picture many of you nodding your head and smiling having…

Organising your Camping Food

Who’s sick of searching through camp food boxes on the ground? Horrible isn’t it? Not only have you got to constantly bend over (not good on our backs) – it becomes very frustrating when wasting your very own ‘valuable camping peace and quiet time’ looking for a particular food product that you cannot seem to find (I…

Local Beach Camping – Why do we love it and are we loving it too much?

I am not sure if you have been up to Double Island point recently or not – my goodness it has become so busy – it’s like a highway! Why…. why has it become so extraordinarily busy? And to throw a cat amongst the pigeons….  my folks first started taking us camping to Double Island…
