All the long drawn-out hassles at work have come to a conclusion. I'll go down a notch, but still retain the same pay and won't have to put up with all the nonsense.

After 12 months of this, I'll finally be able to sit around a camp fire, enjoy myself, and not have that inherent thought that my working days are finished when I get back home.

I won't tell a lie. It was really getting to me.

Without a doubt, I've got the best staff a man could wish for. Prior to the change over, I want to take them to the bush and have one hell of a weekend. Anyone have a suggestions within a reasonable distance from the Village?

Kids will be involved, so I'm at a bit of a loss to pick an area which will cater for all needs...perhaps Rawson?

Regards

Kim

I live between Tyers & Walhalla, as far as I can see most of the camp sites up this are either fire &/or flood damaged, or have been trashed by bogans!

Hi Kim,
Depends on what you are after. There is(or used to be) a good caravan park/camping ground on the Mouth of the Powlett River. On the way to Wonthaggi. Fires were permitted and fun times for all with sand dunes at hand, estury and beach fishing and kids on pushbikes everywhere. I have been in the west for a while now and am not sure if its still about but could be worth a look? Hope this helps

hey Kim/Matt
the mouth of the Powlett River Caravan Park would be a great place off peak.Can get very busy during the holiday season. Was there late last year and the river mouth was opening up again.Beach is great. We went with my son and his daughter and had a really good relaxing weekend. Top spot.

I put the idea to them but did'nt get a strong response. They don't appear to be all that interested in going bush.

Happy that the work situation (whatever it is...I just thought you were a fulltime superhero:) has sorted itself out.
I would have cheerfully taken my staff bush for a weekend...and left em there!
Working days finished? Boy have you got that wrong ! Mate, your working days don't ever finish, it's just the nature of the work that changes.
