O/K so we dropped the ball this year. 2005 was great but wet.
A varst base of knowledge within this community (EO)
Challenge, site and date for 2007 national gathering.
Criteria. (add or delete as you see fit)
1. Not an established caravan park ect. Most of us I think can survive three or four days without amenities.
2. Must be able to have camp fire.
3. Access for those who are towing.
4. Room was large numbers of campers.
5. To reduce travel for all as much as possible, should be outback QLD, SA, NT or NSW. Sorry WA & TAS don't mean to be rude but most seem to be in those four states.
6. Date suitable for those with children.
7. Things to do other than drink & BS around camp fire.
8. Participants must be flexible and willing to compromise.

What do you think, can we do this or is it just too hard.
My knowledge of suitable places is non existant.
I was thinking private property somewhere.

haha! Well you might've been rude to TAS & WA but good ol VIC didn't even get a mention! haha! Nah sounds like a fantastic idea and good luck with it. Personally - I'm flat out committing to heading out for a play on any given weekend with the mates let alone a date in 2007! ;-)

Good luck but - it sounds fantatsic!

Hi Wim, I agree that is all a great starting point.

I see you say that most (members) are in "QLD, SA, NT or NSW" in suggesting the outback in those states. I think you will probably find there are nearly more members in Victoria than NT and SA combined and doubled. Had you left out the beautiful state by mistake in your calculations? I see you mentions other mainland states and territories and an offshore state

p.s I know you would all be stopped by police on the way here though, but it would only be a few days as Wim suggests.
Cheers,
Who?

OK I'll throw one in. April 2007 at Lake Culluleraine on the Sturt Highway about 60 k's west of Mildura. Activities can include Sunset Nat Park, River Murray, Caravan Park for those who find it easier, bush camping on river but not big enough in one area for more than about 20.

Lake Albercuttca would be good too but could be dry aroundthere at that time of year.Around Easter would give distant travellers time to get there.

You're right, Easter would be a good time to camp at Lake Albacutya. Actually, I like Berri! Lake Bonney is good too at Barmera. Being that close to Banrock Station Winery can't be bad!!

We had a get-together a few years ago near Berri, would be OK there too but not at Easter. Way toooo many people there. The Berri Caravan Park would be OK too as I could walk to there. (not at easter either) Bit far perhaps for the Qld guys.

Des Lexic,

Barmera definitely too busy at Easter!!

What about Mungo NP. Bit further up, closer to Broken Hill!! Lots to see and do big camp ground, can have camp fires. Closer for Queenslanders too. There are so many good places really in any state (or territory!). Hopefully someone will come up with something that suits most people at a time that suits as well.

Lake Albacutya..near Wyperfeld National Park, Big Desert & Murray Sunset NP. Near the towns of Rainbow and Yaapeet in Victoria. Big area for campers...toilet block, showers (could be cold water though)...sand tracks around the lake, dry lake bed crossing. Not far from Murrayville Track and Pink Lakes and Lake Hindmarsh (dry). Not far from the Border Track, Red Bluff Nature Reserve.

On a clear day, from the summit of Milmed Rock you can just about make out Ayres Rock. For the serious "summiteers"I suggest pittons, a safety harness and quality rope for Milmed Rock - some have suggested oxygen but I think they're just wimps (they probably own a Waeco!).

One couldnt say I summitted Milmed Rock, more I stumbled over the top, no Oxygen, no reduced cold device, Waeco or Engel, I think we had a Chescold back at camp running on gas tho. The car park near the summit is very small and challenging also. There were places near the summit I thought I detected years of tears and sweat, mainly tears from people engaging in major mirth at the spectacle of THE ROCK.

Great Idea, how about Silverton, near Broken Hill, say the week before or the week after the Outback Challenge Early June that would be or second week in May.

Broken Hill is full of stuff to do and with the challenge a day trip out there would be an amazing thing to see, over to you

G'day, ....and now for the decenting view, I think this is a organisational nightmare, you'll be lucky to get 10-20 turn up.....then dissapiontment in calling it a national gathering. Finding the venue is going to be another problem, you'll always displease someone-some group.
After reading the threads on this site and some members veiws I can't really see any of you agreeing on a time or place.
Why not keep it as it is, keep in contact through this site and meet up when you are on the road.

"If you build it, they will come"

Well who knows, if you make a venue, date etc, they might just surprise the heck of out us and turn up!!

In the meantime, doesn't hurt to toss around a few ideas, at least it makes us think of all the good places we've got that we can go, camp and enjoy. It certainly helped me fill in a quiet night while I was sitting up waiting for some of my family to arrive from Adelaide.

You're surely not suggesting there is any acrimony between people on this forum!? :)

It's the internet, it's not real, people who think they don't like one-another may be surprised (or not, as the case may be) but I would expect them to exercise politeness and consideration nevertheless and if someone attends you don't get on with then just make the effort not to get into an argument with one-another. We're all grown up and mature enough to do that, surely?

I don't understand how Andy thought there was any disagreement. It was only a "discussion" with some ideas being thrown in. No one was getting upset just having fun. I think it's a great idea, wherever and whenever it is held. And like you I think everyone would find they got on well..

Seriously though, I spend alot of time blowing raspberries and making baby noises to our 7mth old and the rest of my time goof-balling with my 4yo; I don't know if I can have an adult conversation anymore, the boundaries are very blurry. Perhaps we could organise a pavilion for people with this type of affliction :-P
I read this post thinking, "How will we ever do this; we'll be broke, need time off work" etc. Then I thought, "Maybe I should check my diary". Lo and behold, I have nothing plannned after tomorrow. So I guess I'm in....and Jen (my wife) and Cooper and Kyan (the boys) and Buddha(if dogs are permitted). That's if Jen wants to meet the people that keep me glued to the computer screen LOL

It would be a brave man who started an argument between anyone who does Craftwork..those people use sharp instruments and it could get ugly when the stitches started to come undone!!

Point :))) taken Viv. I also agree with your choice of Mungo NP. Been meaning to get out there for a while now.

Gramps,

Mungo NP is a great spot to visit. I reckon this get together should be possible. Don't really care where & when. Would like to put faces to the names... I don't know if you are related by girth to the Rock but by mirth is true. I've enjoyed the chatter.

Best wishes

Viv

Viv,

I hope it does 'get together' so to speak. Like you, it would be good to put faces to names. Who knows, AndyQ might even be able to make it. Sounds like he might need a bit of 'campfire therapy' - don't we all ?

10-20.... we had 80+ at Robe and a great time was had by all and that was a SA/Vic collaboration only, it is true, make it somewhere central and make a date and providing there are things to to the EO people will come, some wont many will, but I havent been to an EO gathering where fun wasnt had and someone wasnt scared

Top idea, Wim. June holidays works real good for us as the private schools get a 3 week break.

Location? Anywhere we haven't been yet, so that leaves plenty ;-) The suggestions for around Broken Hill sound good.

Heck...it's too easy..
I'm sure Keith Rasheed from Wilpena would make room for eveyone out there on Arkaba Station.

How about Warraweena Station Conservation Park in the Flinders Ranges?

It is about equidistant from everywhere except from my place which is just around the corner(about 350km)

Good campsites, Plenty of space lots of firewood and excellent 4x4 tracks.

BTW I was at the first National EO Forum Gathering. We would have had about 30 vehicles there but the weather interfered with the plans and closed roads and only 7 managed to make it. Still, we had a good time at Birdsville and had a great 'cook-up' at the base of Big Red

Cheers

If it's got lots of space, firewood and tracks to explore during the day it sounds ideal to me, that idea Bonz has is pretty damn good also.

I think the best way to get people to agree on a place is to just post it as a gathering. Warraweena Station Conservation Park sounds good to me. Its too difficult to agree on a date and a place so someone just post the trip on a date and I am sure people will come.
