I will be on my month off from 25 September to 22 October this year.
Anyone interested in a South Australian COG somewhere close?
By close I am thinking close enough to allow day trippers.

Unfortunately we will be home then after this trip folllowing Silverton. 

Apart from smaller getaways our next big one is looking like Tassie in February 2018.

No worries Derek'
My idea is if anyone doesn't have the time to stay overnight then they can come for the day. Just let us know we are very flexible.

Ok lets do it. Lock in 14-15 October 2017. Cool Cool
Now we need a venue.
As for being a bit warm at that time of year Smokey. We could always have salads.
It don't don't matter as long as we have a get together.

I am easy with any of them Gromet.
My thought is to make it say within 1.5 hours of Adelaide so day visitors can make it if need be.

This place we are at now would be a great spot. Benson Park on the highway east of Waikerie. It is on WikiCamps

Last time I was at Burra Gorge any type of solid fuel fire was banned.

There's this one I found its about 1/2 hour farther than Towitta  2 hrs from Adelaide GPO
There is heaps of room for vans. They all could be put in a circle with the fire in the centre
The toilets are long drops I have more phots if anyone wants to see

Fires are OK at Burra Gorge. ( unless extreme weather conditions bring forward the fire restrictions dates)
http://www.goyder.sa.gov.au/page.aspx?u=474

The way I read it, you can also have a comfort fire during the fire season with conditions.

John Christian Reserve looks a lot better than I have previously seen it. I would camp there in a group.

Post some more photos GROMET. Can't see many if any evidence of campfires there?

Whatdayah reckon? Lock it in  Smiley Whatdayah reckon shackles?

Looks a ripper of a spot. If I remember, it's on a back road that not many would drive past.

And close to the city for any outsiders looking in, to pop in.

That looks like a fantastic location. I doubt the wife would approve of me driving 2500km for a weekend away, so I'll have to add that one to the bucket list for sure

I try to talk myself into it, thinking I do an 800km round trip every month to do the shopping in Kalgoorlie, so 2500 is only 3x that, and I'd get to see the Nullarbor, which is another thing on that rather long bucket list.  Grin

Meandered out to the back paddock and located my neglected camp ovens   Shocked

Last used in the March Challenge. They are now sitting in a mixture of vinegar and citric acid  to clean them up.

I'm blowing the  cobwebs out of the van this weekend with another Eyre Peninsula trip.

I'm not thinking of much for the cog except for pasties and a chocolate cake.

Maybe some bread rolls and a stew. And just remembered my Fritz Schnitzel's  Cheesy

Hey Rick, I have never cooked pasties in a camp oven  before so how about you and I have  a COG challenge  We both cook pasties  and Brian can be the taste tester to see which one of us can enter his  October pastry  challenge

Prep time! Are you sure? Or is that practice time  Smiley
it's been around 10 years since I have made pasties and never in a camp oven so this is going to be interesting  Smiley

Are you arriving Friday Brian?  Best if you do because it could get scarey by yourselves  Tongue

I'm going to compare your baked corned beef with the old fashioned simmering teqnique.

I have had mixed results with baking it.

Just need to stop at the local bakery for a couple of Cornish pasties to re-heat  Cheesy

You are missing in action over on the caravaners forum, Brian. Haven't you got your photos developed yet  Roll Eyes

There are two areas to pick from one on the left and one on the right as you drive in
The one I have used is on the right below the toilet block  it's flat and we can all get around the fireplace  if you look at the picture  it should help locating it  But any where is OK by me so you pick and I will find

Nothing like a gathering of like minded camp oven cooks.

Well done guys and girls.

You guys perhaps should set a date now for the next one.  Listed in advance there is a chance some of us from the east might attend.  Smiley

Very relaxing weekend for us. Starting to get the camp cooking juices flowing again  Smiley

We didn't overdo it foodwise. Baked potatoes, bacon and egg jaffles, slow simmered corned silverside, Cornish Pasties, Fritz schnitzels  and I think  that was it. Enjoyed tasting shackles sausage roll, jam drops, mashed potato. Loved Little g's  Grin baked pumpkin and meatballs in a superb sauce.

A ripper of a camp oven camping location. We all agreed to go back next year between may and September inclusive.

May have a backyard gathering at Little g's  Grin between now and then.

I have been tempted by the word "pumpkin" and have to remind myself that you all say that word and mean what is squash to N. Am.  See http://www.veseys.com/ca/en/search?keywords=squash  and check for Winter Hubbard or Sweet Mama as closest to pic above of  'the vegetable'.

& here are some varieties of what we call pumpkin http://www.veseys.com/ca/en/search?keywords=pumpkin

Of course, as this recent news article says all of these veggies are generically squash.  http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/joe-jutras-gourd-pumpkin-growth-1.4349415  Do you all have any competitions for the like down there.  BTB remember it's fall up here now.

Oh, yes Little G, I saw a post of yours somewhere about a drop in # of posts these days (i.e. with the warm sunny days).  Or plenty of readers.....

Not sure if anyone here has a high enough camp oven to fit this pumpkin  Tongue

And the look of shock/horror on everyone's faces when I asked if anyone minded that I used my "Bong" was worth bottling  Grin
