It’s a Grey Issue

The handling of grey water is a contentious issue for caravanners in this country. Some campgrounds don’t like people to drop their grey water because sullage hoses that aren’t moved regularly can spoil the ground. On the other hand, we’ve seen desert caravan parks that ask visitors to drop their grey water and helpfully move the sullage hoses around their lush lawns and garden beds for us. That said, it was no surprise when I received this text from friends who for privacy’s sake I’ll call Crafty Colleen and Bob the Builder. “We drove into Charleville Bush Camp and a … Continue reading It’s a Grey Issue

Follow the Sun, Day 49 – Gorged Out

Day 49, 31/8/2019 Saturday Cania Gorge, overcast low 20’s To make some room while making breakfast Woody puts the chook scraps out on the caravan drop down table.

Mulambin Mumblings – Pisang Ducasse

Aug 2019, Mulambin, Capricorn Coast, Qld Now that’s not a heading you often see. We were up early to take Double or ‘Nuthin and Shirley to the Yeppoon Farmer’s Market which turned out to be a bit of a non-event. Double or ‘Nuthin had been told to look for the pineapple juice. He found it and bought some, frozen, in an old vinegar bottle. Demand must be fierce as they don’t even have the time to soak the labels off the bottles. Anyway, he reckons it was good. Although on this overcast morning there weren’t many stalls we stocked up … Continue reading Mulambin Mumblings – Pisang Ducasse
