So, the missus and I started our first ever camping trip on the 18th from Wombeyan to Jenolan.

Left around the 9am mark from Mittagong after having some breaky and headed for Wombeyan Caves Road

Took a wrong turn and decided to get the GPS out. Little River Fire Trail should have taken us back to our intended track.

And then had to turn around and go back

Found our way and were on our way to Mt Werong and Dingo Dell.

Mt Werong and Dingo Dell camp grounds weren't very appealing so we headed for Boyd River Camp ground.

Crossed the Kowmung River for my very poor first river crossing into the steep climb out of the valley

Arrived at this creek crossing, didn't feel comfortable crossing as there were massive boulders and didn't want to risk getting stuck or breaking something.

Turned around and headed up boyd river firetrail - single track and pretty slow. Ended up in camp around the 4.30pm mark, cracked a beer and watched the missus set up the rooftop.
She did such a great job i woke up early and made her tea in the rain.

Good stuff Chris. Looks like you had fun.
Just for future reference that creek crossing looks a little nasty but if you're slow and careful it's really fine.

Sounds like a good first camping trip. Kowmung was one of the first tracks I did solo when I got my Licence. Its a great all rounder.

That's a great book for getting out and about!
Todd was right, all the trucks at the caves on Sunday were proudly supporting 4x4earth stickers, next time make yourself known!

See you out and about hey!

Sorry we missed you Chris at Wombeyan Mate - love the photo's.
You used to be able to go via Lime Burners but it's all gated now. (Last trip I did there the place was trashed - not much wonder it got closed)

fantastic photos / well done for a firsty / good to see a d22 getting dirty as well / thanx for the quality photos too / i did that track when i was field testing out my vehicle / the track doesn't have to be tough for you to be a hero / just getting about is what its all about i reckon

Thanks Maddon, the missus and I had a ball. I am dirty that i am at work i just want to be out again. The D22 is perfect for the missus and my needs does us well when we want to go together. Normally I go out on the bike.
