Edition 244: 29th September 2011
Hi ExplorOz Reader,
What are some of the less pleasant aspects of being on the road, particularly if you're camping? We've identified some important issues that can have a major impact on how much you enjoy your trip, and published two brand new articles in our camping section on Pests, and Portable Toilets and Dump Points. The Online Shop has also added a brand new product to its GPS section, the VMS Touring 700HD On and Off Road GPS has just been released and is both easy to use and great value with a massive 7" screen display.
Also in this newsletter we have a great offer from Find A Park and we'll be telling you how to download their award winning app for Free. Plus, don't forget about our Nissan Navara Seiko Watch Giveaway, one lucky member will be receiving this fantastic watch, drawn on the 2nd of October, so if you want to be sure you're eligible to win, join as a member today!
New Pests Article
Pests such as flies, ants, mice and rats can have a real impact on your trip, especially while camping. The newly published Pests article, found in our Camping topic section, identifies common species of pests that you'll encounter on your travels and how to prevent them from invading your tent, vehicle and personal space!
Portable Toilets and Dump Points Article
Don't want to give up on access to an important facility when travelling? Our Portable Toilets and Dump Points article, found in our Camping topic section, outlines what types of portable toilets are on the market (both stand alone and caravan/motor-home toilets) - plus how to safely and responsibly empty them at designated dump points.
