    ha ha @Patriot something gone weird with image uploads? Even modestly sized images now say they're too large? (i cbf' going and re-exporting photos to compress the file size, forum has always done what it needed to do... and bandwidth / high res screens is everywhere these days!)

    Forum is no longer appearing to allow upload of even modestly sized images. Weird

    The path to unlocking in Victoria- when can we travel and camp?

    in WA, camping and internal tourism is booming. Everything, everywhere, is bloody busy. Buy/sell caravan /camping gear looks like a gold rush. (we haven't had a case since April, completely business as usual here and has been almost all along... except we can't leave the state and its near...

    Had my sons scouts (sea) Joey leap festival on Saturday which he loved, finished up at 430pm and we headed straight out to find friends at camp on sunset. Good weekend all round.

    Just as the neighbour if you can borrow his van (might have more luck asking to borrow his wife but you never know...) Ditto, i want to rent a van ... but there's a problem in WA now with renting or buying ... its one hell of a sellers market. Things here are going insanely gangbusters...

    Maybe he means caravans with hard walls? I too would like a caravan for the one or two trips a year that warrant it ... but every time I sit down and honestly ask myself which of the 14-18 trips I do per year I like the most, each time its the 1-3 nighters into very hard to get to 4wd locations...

    Fathers Day (early, as the weather was good) with a mate to a favoured spot. Just a day trip. Enough to exhaust the kids.

    Yep ... slightly bulkier because there's a fair bit more canvass and zips / panels, but bag is much easier to deal with too with the way they've done the zipper. nah 1400 ... i figure if going a big heavy 4wd based swag it might aswell be a queen! and yeah the dew is sometimes a PITA ...

    I blame covid and ordering shit online! Nah truth is it piqued my interest and IMHO is a better design over the DD. I do enough camping to justify giving it a crack and so far impressed. YOu can now open / close all outer surfaces from inside the swag, whereas on the DD , you had to get out...

    Bit confused about the question. You’re saying if I find a fly useful then it will put you off ? in terms of the first part of question, certainly don’t need one - have done probably 60 trips in my Darche dirty de and 4 in my 23 zero bandit (only had it 2 months) - def don’t need a fly - more...
