Hi everyone,

just wanted to share our video of our camping trip to Booloumba Creek. The creek was dried out unfortunately, but despite that it is an amazing place. We cooked some nice food on the camp fire, saw some wild life. All in the video. Please check it out :)

Ha Ha Ha not much teamwork in setting your camp up! At any one time one of you are sitting down watching the other! ;-)
Nice video, and you captured why we like camping for sure.

Haha, it may look like it, but the sun was really hard on her, she took a break in the shade :)

Plus I love setting up all this stuff :P

Eug S

Looks like you had a great time.

Just for a safety point of view, buy yourself a good pair of leather Riggers gloves for the fire. Those gloves you were wearing are ok for the car, but very unsafe for use on the fire.

Also have a look at getting a Kindling Cracker......they are brilliant for getting kindling for your fire and far safer than using a hatchet.

If you open the link below it will show you what they are. I was not sure and took some time to make my mind up before buying one and after using it.....brilliantKindling Cracker....Australian made with Aussie steel and not a cheap Chinese import

Wow now thats a great suggestion. Looks interesting. If it wasn't so bulky I would go for it straight away. We are aiming now to get our camping gear as compact as possible. We are trying to ditch our trailer as often as possible and get everything into our 2 door Jeep JK.

It kind of makes fun to create a campsite out of a small cargo :)

The Kindling Crackers are not big at all and make the perfect=companion when camping.

As I mentioned above, the best thing is Aussie made with Aussie Steel. When I contacted them Inwas concerned just how strong they were and could they split Mulga.

On our recent bush trip, I gave it a good work out with a few different types of wood including Mulga and it handled them all in its stride. Another safe thing, you only use a 3LB hammer and if you look at the below clip, they work as good as they are shown here.

The clip is from the US, but shows you how simple they are and is the safest way to split woodKindling Cracker in action

Thank you! We definetly were. We used to drag a trailer behind us with all kind of bulky gear. We decided to go small and minimalistic. Enjoying it very much.
