Greendog,

You'd think after the recent bushfire disasters in Victoria that whoever this imbecile was, would know better.

Common sense isn't as common as we think - apparently.

Greendog,

I'm with you. It's a bit like the post I submitted last year on a related (sort of) subject. I had to do a quick trip to QLD to pick up our Goldstream camer trailer, and I reckon almost every roadside stop I pulled up at stank of human waste.

Not only did the mongrels not bother to even bury their deposits, it was obvious that many didn't even bother to get off the road! Imagine pulling up for a break and opening the car door to be confronted by what some inconsiderate A***hole had for dinner the night before! Do these people do this home?

Now that we travel with a 2.5 y.o. boy, I'm forced to get out of the car first and "spot the obvious". I really feel for him, if this is the world he'll have to grow up in!

Matt

Greendog,

We drove through Burra Creek Gorge camp ground at Easter and was very disappointed in the attitude of most campers there.

We had lunch and kept going. There were kids riding quads and motorbikes without helmets, and adults too.

And the biggest disappointment was the amount of fires that were burning, and the sign clearly says, 'Gas and Electric fires only".
It will be closed to campers in the near future without a doubt.

We spent the weekend at Carroona Creek Conservation Park.

Geoff.

I checked with NPWS before we left and although it states on the sighn only gas fires only you can allso have a fire as long as you have it in a 30cm pit and have a 4m clearance and have some water on stand by,the sighns are put up by the local council not NPWS.I ca'nt see a problem in having a small fire as long as you keep to the regulations.
