    Just be very careful about setting up anywhere near the airstrip or the roads/dirt road nearby....Rangers patrol Old Bar very closely on this, the busiest weekend of the year.
    It's a lot more fun to be in the midst of kombi-central that is Lanis. :cool:
    Folks always cancel at the last minute , or don’t turn up....and Fizal & Wendy will do their best to accommodate KC members....they always have.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Correct & if you don't need power there is always a spot in Lanis. The spot on the high side of us has been either empty or overnighters stay each year we've been. Always welcome in "da hood" :cool:

    This is really turning into a family event for us too. This year we are bringing the whole family and a couple friends.. Cant wait. On another note, has anyone noticed that Google maps are also in on the action and decided to take the map photo at the best time of year?

    Yep sounds like a plan. Always a treat seeing a swag of Kombi’s at the pie shop.

    I did too and like Phil, I paid my $25. If it is a scam, they have done well to get a bank account with that name! ;)

    Thinking of registering it in Kirra’s name.........she loved OldBar and everything about it......

    Been on the waiting list.............? just going to rock up, if no space will just go and throw ourselves away in the bush somewhere :) isn't that what campers are for ?
    The cruise from Mildura to Old Bar and parts north always included a freebie o/nite at "The Rock" .........no more Eno needed now. and probably the thrill of towing
    backpackers "Wicked Campers" out of the drain. :eek::D
