ANNUAL CAMP OVEN COOK UP WEEKEND - 3rd - 6th June 2022
« on: 07 June, 2022, 09:57:22 AM »
This is our first Camp Oven Cook Up weekend, and we had a great time!

We packed up the camper on Friday, hooked the car up and made our way up Great Northern Hwy towards Mogumber.
We made the right turn off, but unfortunately the stupid map, told us to turn into the wrong driveway. After going into the gate and down the driveway we saw a homestead and thought 'someone is going to come out and shoot us!' so we made a quick uturn and headed back to the road, where we then tired to ring every number we had to get through to someone to come and get us!

Thankfully, Tim came through with the Google Maps coordinates (I have no switched to Google Maps and deleted the other stupid one!) and while we were following that, L300 gave us a call and put us in the right direction. As we headed back down the road towards to the right driverway, we could see lights in the distance. We were on the right track! On channel 20 we heard the sweet voice of L300. Yah we found it!  Thanks to L300 and friend for opening and shutting all the gates for us, we were followed along and saw our spot where everyone was sitting around the campfire.

After we found a spot to pull up, we unhitched the camper and proceeded to set up. We made our way over to the fire to say hi and get a little warmer, before calling it a night and heading to bed.

Up bring and early Saturday morning gave us a whole new view of where we were camped. Beautiful green paddocks.
We made breakfast and then everyone made their way around to check out everyones camper set up. It was great to see all the different campers.

The rest of the day was spent talking and walking around. The boys went and got some wood stocked for the fire, we had lunch and just wasted time.  Tim and Sara and the Kinangs arrived in the afternoon.

We took a walk up the hill to get reception and catch up on the world, before coming back down where everyone was starting the cooking process for dinner.

There were camp ovens , chooffas and smokers. Everyone ate dinner and even had dessert. There were casseroles and curries, roast meats and potatoes, potato bake and more, apple crumble and upside cake.  What I was able to eat tasted great!

After dinner and clean up, everyone proceeded to sit around the campfire and talk until the wee hours of the morning.

Sunday morning saw us get up and make breakfast before alot of campers decided to rise. We ate and packed up the camper, before heading off just before 10am.
We missed the Gymkhana but had a great time anyway!

Thank you to L300 for letting us stay on his families property, and to Budds for organsing yet another great event for the year.
I didnt take any photos, so please feel to add some!
