    Ok... love my camping/4wdriving. Live in good old south Australia..

    Haven't fentured to far (unfortunately) up the river and southern part of the flinders..

    Besides the obvious cape York, Kimberleys ect ect... would love to pack up my baby fill her up with diesel and **** off lol

    Bit closer to home obviously go back and explore the flinders better.. and the robe to beachport drive (hopefully later this year)

    One of the things I love about camping is slowing the pace of the world down... a few quiet beers and stare at the stars makes me feel instantly relaxed... now i really want to bugger off bush lol

    I would love to have the skills and knowledge of Les Stroud and go to some of the places he's been to. It would be pretty bloody rough at times but really character building.

    Have a crack at the Coffin Bay National park. Rugged dirt tracks, beach driving, beautiful scenery, fantastic camping and fishing spots. Gods country.

    What sort of camping setup do you use? I find a kings deluxe swag under an awning and sidewalls is a very comfortable and lightweight way to go. I run a battery box with two deep cell batterys for power. Charge with 160 watt solar panel. Lasts me forever or until the beer runs out :p

    Far west Eyre peninsula - Fowler's bay/yalata/dog fence is a good trip, excellent land-based fishing (mulloway, snapper)

    Anyone use camper trailers? Reckon they look great and pretty affordable compared to camper vans. Bed, sink, stove, shade, storage, everything kept in the trailer rather than the shed and packing all the time.

    Ive done that a few time now, the salmon fishing at Scotts beach is worth the trip alone.
    Plus the sharks at Yalata are underated, nothing like a 8ft bronzie smoking you and giving you a hard work out for an hour.
