Camping 4.0

Camping 4.0! Stuff just got real! Always a ball of fun, join us on Saturday to chill down by the river, mingle, relax and melt some marshmellows to warm our winter hearts.

We'll start setting up at around 1pm, and then cook a BBQ at around 5pm. Location details:
TBC, http://www.tams.act.gov.au/parks-recreation/recreational_activities/camping_in_the_act/cotter_campground

More details to come including organising car pooling, tents etc if people don't have their own gear. We camp simply, so no need to worry about equipment - just help where you can. Be sure to bring cold weather gear as frost occurs at this time of year.

Hope to see you there!

    Sorry guys but I won't make it camping this weekend - there is just too much I need to get done in too little time. My tent and camping chairs are still available if they're needed - I live really close to cotter rd so they would be easy to pick up on the way through if you like. Have fun!

    Hi Happy Campers, over the next day I'd like to lock in plans for camping. If everyone could eat lunch and arrive at the campsite from 1pm onwards, we can help set up the site. Our first meal will be dinner, so please bring snacks and water. Can you all bring a salad for the bbq. I'll bring the bread, meat, sauce, including eggs and bacon for brekky. Don't forget the firewood and other things... looking forward to a great weekend with good weather!

    • Peter

      You don't make friends with salad :-P

    • Naomi

      George, we'll leave you to pack up ;-)

      April 25, 2014

  • Naomi

    Hey campers, hope you're all ready to go. It's going to be a great arvo/night. Please read through the posts to make sure you take everything you need as well as communal things. We have enough tents and space. Follow the directions; and you can't get lost! Give me a call if you have any questions etc. Phone reception may not be available, so please consider that. You'll find us, I'll put a sign up if there's any confusion! See you from 1pm tomorrow :-)

    Hello Team Camping!

    It's time to lock camping in! I've decided to go with the original suggestion of Cotter because it has more facilities, walking tracks and river, it's convenient/close to Canberra and somewhere different!

    As the link says, it's not a bookable site, but I'm confident we'll be able to find a patch suitable for our shenannigans! It's $12 per person per night. Gates close at 10pm.

    You'll need to bring:
    1 x bag of firewood each (for the communal fire)
    Lots of warm clothes, spares and wet weather gear
    Sleeping bag, mat (recommended, can buy cheap), pillow
    Torch (not mandatory but helpful)
    Camping chair
    Own drinks/alcohol, cooler bag
    Mozzie repellent

    I have a tent that can fit 6 persons, 8 if we want to be cosy. Can you please let me know if you are able to share/bring a tent? The aim will be to have only several tents. It's only one night!

    Food, utensils and snacks can be worked out a little closer to the date. Please add anything I've forgotten. Happy wkd,

    Naomi

      Might be worth pointing out that this campsite is not pet-friendly

  • Kelly B.

    I'm going to come hang out for the afternoon but not stay the night, my family brunch on Sunday is earlier than I'd anticipated.

    April 21, 2014

    • Naomi

      No worries Kelly; really glad you can still join us :-)

    Potentially a Bec situation, but my family are not very reliable so good chance I'll make it :)
