    I think I liked your old profile pic better Dave LOL

    No waves this weekend. Spent the day building and installing new speaker boxes for the front speakers (gotta have good music in the Kombi) then went down the beach for a quick beverage with the bride. Gotta love Sunday arvo storms.

    Just started 2 weeks holidays so plan to get a bit of surfing, fishing and driving in. Got some crackers at Kirra Point this morning then went for an arvo drive out the valley with the bride. Stoked!

    Got back from camping in the Kombi yesterday and just had to sneak another day trip in today before we return to work. Loving it!

    Hey Dave, We'd love to attend Old Bar this year but it appears that the caravan park is full. Not sure what other options there is. I like to have a few beers in the evening at these gatherings so camping elsewhere isn't a very attractive option considering we would need to travel. I'll have to explore what other options we have. The old girl is travelling well.(The Kombi - not Leisa LOL)

    Generally the caravan park has spots available so long as you don't need a powered site. They do their best to fit everyone in. We stay at the Meridian. It's a bit quieter;).
    Start planning:D.

    We stayed on the airstrip at Old Bar last year, booked through Lanis Caravan Park, just a short walk to all of the park facilities, it's just across the road.
    Will stay there again this year, close to the park, fireworks, markets and the activities. Need to bring a bigger hammer for the tent pegs, a bit of dirt over bitumen, so bloody hard to get pegs in!! Or maybe bring an impact driver and some coach bolts.
    Cheers

    Dan get on the waiting list at Lani's, often there is a cencellation. Or sometimes theres unpowered sites available, you can use the camp kitchen or use someone elses power to charge up phones etc. :D
