21 – 27 January 2015 – Robertson NSW

We planned to attend the monthly meeting of the CMCA chapter that we are members of being held at Robertson in the Southern Highlands about 130klm’s south west of Sydney. The meeting was scheduled to take place between Friday 23 January and Australia Day on Monday 26 January. Knowing that the temperature at Robertson . . . → Read More: 21 – 27 January 2015 – Robertson NSW

28 – 30 November 2014 – Binalong NSW

Our reason for travelling to Binalong was to join a CMCA chapter for Christmas dinner and the annual AGM.

As has been the case in previous visits to Binalong, the weather was warm especially when we did not have power to run our air conditioning in the caravan. “He” was still far from well . . . → Read More: 28 – 30 November 2014 – Binalong NSW

27 November 2014 – Bathurst to Binalong NSW

We awoke to a fine day with the forecast of temperatures in the mid twenties.

Our pack-up process was flawless and we departed at 9:00am as planned.

First task of the day was to refuel and much to our surprise, we could not locate a Coles Express “Shell” outlet in Cowra. It was like . . . → Read More: 27 November 2014 – Bathurst to Binalong NSW

28 July 2014 – Cowra to Sydney NSW

We awoke to a nice sunny winter day. Our plan for today was to start our return journey back to Sydney but to camp within a two hour drive of Sydney so we could plan our arrival home outside of peak and school hours. Those plans were scraped when we learnt that our son . . . → Read More: 28 July 2014 – Cowra to Sydney NSW

25 – 27 July 2014 – Cowra NSW

25 July 2014 – Cowra NSW

The reason for our visit to Cowra was to attend the monthly meeting of a CMCA chapter.

Over the course of the day, four other vehicles arrived to complete our group, which comprised of three motorhomes, two caravans and two campers. With the exception of one of the . . . → Read More: 25 – 27 July 2014 – Cowra NSW

24 July 2014 – Sofala to Cowra NSW

We were in no hurry to relocate to Cowra as the morning temperature was around the zero mark. It was overcast and rain was expected. We could actually see dark clouds in the direction of Bathurst but it remained dry in Sofala until we departed. Our batteries were lower than expected and it looks . . . → Read More: 24 July 2014 – Sofala to Cowra NSW

23 – 28 January 2014 – Robertson NSW

Retirement is definitely very hard work! Every day seems to be a Friday, there are no long weekends and no one person to apply to for having a sick day away from retirement. Annual leave, well that is certainly something from the past and receiving a salary is a far distant memory. And then . . . → Read More: 23 – 28 January 2014 – Robertson NSW

19 – 23 September 2013 – Wee Jasper NSW

When we attended the Caravan and Camping Show at Penrith in early September 2014, we decided to purchase an annexe for our caravan. This purchase was something that we had considered for several years and now having the caravan that we can leave behind upon arrival at a destination now made it the right . . . → Read More: 19 – 23 September 2013 – Wee Jasper NSW

17 – 20 May 2013 – Berry NSW

As readers of this blog will know, we are members of a CMCA Chapter. Most of the meetings held during the year are in South Western NSW but now and then we have a meeting that is not all that far from home. May 2013 was one such occasion.

We have decided that our . . . → Read More: 17 – 20 May 2013 – Berry NSW

14 – 18 March 2013 – Trunkey Creek NSW

Since owning a caravan, we have discovered that our street is not as wide as we thought. It is a major exercise to extract the caravan from the driveway and requires cooperation from a neighbour across the road to ensure that no vehicle is parked in front of their house when we extract the . . . → Read More: 14 – 18 March 2013 – Trunkey Creek NSW

14 – 18 February 2013 – Boorowa NSW

We have not travelled since our week away at Bulli in early December 2012. Due to family reasons, we elected not to attend the CMCA chapter meeting in January (it was actually cancelled due to the NSW bush fire crisis at the time) so we were looking forward to getting away in February.

“He” . . . → Read More: 14 – 18 February 2013 – Boorowa NSW

21 to 28 November 2012 – Binalong NSW

Eighteen months ago we joined a CMCA Chapter.  The Chapter is based in the South Western part of NSW and has members in the area surrounding Young and Boorowa.  Friends asked us to go to a meeting at Robertson and we have gone to meetings since that time when we were able to manage . . . → Read More: 21 to 28 November 2012 – Binalong NSW

13 – 16 April 2012 – Wantabadgery NSW

As “He” has virtually run out of annual leave to take in multiples of weeks, “He” has been taking either single or half days annual leave as it accrues to allow us to continue with our weekend getaways.

As we have previously written, we have been attending CMCA Chapter Meetings of the Hilltops Rangers, . . . → Read More: 13 – 16 April 2012 – Wantabadgery NSW

16 – 18 March 2012 – Macquarie Woods NSW

Sydney had experienced a massive amount of rain and we had doubts if our weekend away with a CMCA chapter would take place. Most rivers in the southern part of NSW had flooded including the Macquarie River at Bathurst.

Our destination for the weekend meeting was a place called Macquarie Woods which is located . . . → Read More: 16 – 18 March 2012 – Macquarie Woods NSW

20 – 22 January 2012 – Grabben Gullen NSW

Back in 1970 (or was it in 1971), “He” had the pleasure of finding a star sapphire in the remote NSW Township of Grabben Gullen.

Grabben what you ask?

Grabben Gullen, or Grabby if you are a local, is located roughly WNW of Goulburn NSW (about 61k’s by road) with access via either Gunning . . . → Read More: 20 – 22 January 2012 – Grabben Gullen NSW

25 – 26 November 2011 – Binalong NSW

Earlier this year we joined a CMCA chapter when we attended a gathering at Robertson in the NSW Southern Highlands.  Most of the chapter members reside in south western NSW and with the majority of their gatherings in that general direction, it has been difficult for us to join them when we only have . . . → Read More: 25 – 26 November 2011 – Binalong NSW

20 to 22 May 2011 – Robertson NSW

We were invited by friends to attend a weekend meeting of a CMCA Chapter.  The meeting was held in the showgrounds of the sleepy NSW Southern Highlands township of Robertson.

We decided to leave on Friday afternoon so we meet our friend for dinner.  Initially we planned to take our car but were contacted . . . → Read More: 20 to 22 May 2011 – Robertson NSW
