Fold away shopping bags as you will find a lot of shops do not give out plastic bags anymore .


It is a bit embarrassing having to carry underwear around without a bag !


Caravan & Camping Show Geraldton.


We are big fans of the Caravan & Camping shows and unfortunatly we missed the one in Perth recently .


For years we attended the Sydney Caravan & Camping show & even had a stall there .


In a couple of weeks we will attend the


Geraldton's Biggest Outdoor Leisure Show  in 2011!


Geraldton Turf Club
Eastward Road, Geraldton, WA


We reccommend attending a Caravan & Camping show as they always have great deals for you !


They are on in every state so watch out for one near you !


Extra Items


No camping or caravan trip would be complete without a camera to get great spouse and children memories .


I use a digital camera & download my photo's on the computer for my hubs , send out cards & emailing to loved ones & friends .


As I am working online as a way of making money I have my Toshiba laptop , A printer , laminator & more paper .


We have a board game called Rummicub for lazy afternoons , Pack of cards , paper , pens .


A tent for when you want to leave the caravan for any few days off road trip.


Tools etc


Over a coffee outside I asked Nev about items for traveling I might not have thought of for you guys so here is more items recommended for your travel.


A tool kit with a hammer for awning pegs + more pegs for windy days .


An further tarp for protection or privacy.


A small compressor for if your tyres get a bit low between petrol stations.


Spare Valves.


Blocks to level your caravan out.


A tyre repair kit as a garage could be a days travel away !


A spare car fridge for added drinks or a good catch when fishing .


A solar panel for free camping as it is quieter than a generator.


Car cleaning gear.


A hose for your water.


Extension leads .


Rope as there often seems to be a will need for it . I:E a clothes line etc


Caravan Parks


As much as I promote free camping as we and many others love it there are always times we require to stay in a caravan park.


We meet many people that only stay in Caravan Parks so we are all happy doing it what is comfortable for our individual needs .


We try look for relatives run or council run smaller caravan parks rather than chains as they seem to have less rules , keys & boomgates like here in Morawa caravan Park !


We even have a fire at our corner spot where we love to cook on the open fire & toast marshmallows at night while looking at the stars !
