Hmmm.
Funny that I happen to drop in today?  Wink

G,day Guys.
It's like I was drawn to it by a sixth sense of something!

Been way too long since I logged in to say g'day!  Sad
Missed the last broke COG, despite Rory contacting me with an invite. (slack prick ey')

Been a bit busy with work, family & obsessed with a new hobby.  Cheesy

Will post a catch up thread in Chew The Fat shortly.

Cheers, Mick.

Looking forward to catching up some other time.

G'day Mick, good to hear that you are still out and about.
Sometimes I think about your butane stove and the BBQ plate you made for it, seems that is why they were eventually banned, the heat was deflected back onto the cartridge which exploded !!!
As Aart says, love all your pics.
Rob.
 

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd

Hi

Not much formality  Smiley

Basically just a social gathering of like minded people and we all bring our camp ovens, although much to Rufzgutz distress I did cook at one with my Weber Baby Q, and share the food.

We generally have some discussion about who is cooking what on each day so we don't end up with too much food and just generally enjoy each other's company.

If you come please don't expect that you will have to have to cook too much food if you don't feel so inclined.  In fact I would suggest that any newcomer come along just to join in and not even feel obliged to cook.

One or two dishes at the most over a weekend is all we each generally do.  I think the last COG over three days and nights I cooked a damper, mocha pudding and a shepherds pie.

Was looking forward to this. Big Red (June) has Doctors appointments around these dates and going for 1 day in hospital on the 14th. I said what a wonderful way to recover we go to Broke.

Then noticed that an appointment was on the 14th so they changed it to the 17th right in the middle this Doctor is hard to get in to see so had to take the 17th.

Nothing serious for the 1 day just a look at what is going on in the stomach.

The brother in law said make sure the camera goes in the mouth first as it tastes lousy after the other way.
Have a good cook up.

That's a bit of a bugger Norm.  Health always comes first mate.

We will miss you but there will be other COGs.

I wont be able to get to this one either folks. Four swap meets to do in the next 8 weeks as well as numerous other projects will keep me busy in the coming months.
Do you think you might make it to Nambour or Rocky this year Poddy ?

Bear this happens every time we have one of these things. There is always still to much food, don't worry you wont need to cook anything.

Two weeks to go.  Spoke to Jillie today and Snow is off driving for another two months.  They are coming with a friend so will be there Friday after lunch.

Not sure when we will get there.  Leaving home on the Tuesday but taking it easy in the new motorhome so could be there Thursday or Friday.

Still not sure where I will be putting the camp ovens yet  Shocked

Things not looking too good weather wise for this COG. Weather reports says continuing rain 'til Friday and towns up around the Hunter are on flood alert so after talking with Cactus and taking everything into consideration we have decided that we will cancel, sorry about that, we were looking forward to this one and had begun preparing the van and buying supplies.
Rob and bride.

Looks like Maggie and I on our own. 

All good though as the rain will be a good test for us as one of the reasons we went for a Motorhome was that when in Victoria last year for about three months we had not many nice sunny days and after one day either hitching or unhitching in the cold windy rain Maggie said something like, "You know at your age you cant keep doing this".

So here we are about to head into some wet weather.  Two sleeps to go Smiley

We are actually hitting the road in the morning.  Everything is packed and off to bed shortly.  Going to do a long round trip to Silverton.

Hoping to get a cod in the Murray River this trip.

Derek have a good time with the new rig.

I am having my own camp oven gathering today  with the cat and me, he hangs around waiting to see if there is anything for him.

Doing a Roast Chicken on a spit in my choofer with peas, potatoes and pumpkin. Then next week trying to do some bread.

Would have been at Broke only June has to see the doc today.
