    That sounds like a great idea.

    Booking the return trip has been on my mind as well.

    G'day all,

    Just spoke to C/Park in Mildura, http://www.apexriverbeach.com.au/ the 22-23 of April will not be a problem (there's heaps of room) I said I would get back to them at the end of March to give them a Idea of numbers.

    Even though we live in Mildura I'm happy to stay O/nite in the Park so we are all together, the park is dog friendly, usual rules apply.

    Forgot to add, there is a disposal bin for fruit & veg east of Mildura on the Sturt Hwy (A20) and at Yamba (SA) you will be inspected as this is a 24/7 manned site and stopping is mandatory. The first place to top up the pantry is Renmark, although the signs mention fruit this does include tomatoes and some other veggies !!

    Its been a few years since I've been over the "paddock" the same inspection as Yamba applies to entering WA plus they look for excessive mud build up under the vehicle and if you have styrene boxes (to carry produce in) must be cardboard or other!........not sure if the latter still applies.

    ps Brian will probably know.

    Im not sure on the styrene boxes Geoff as never taken any across, HONEY is also a big no no. The only vegies we take across are in a tin, so no probs there. We do take some fresh when we first head of, but usually only enough so we dont throw away at the border.

    Not sure how feral you guys want to go, but once we get way over the paddock, could be 2 days before a shower. Upside down inside out back to front jocks. all good
