Went down to my favourite little fishing spot for a night. Plan was to fill the freezer up with some redfin fillets. The redfin didn't want a bar of me though. Hooked one on a lure but lost it at the bank. Changed over to bait this morning but after an hour of nothing, gave up. Will try again next week once the water starts to warm up. Cooked a lamb leg roast for dinner that turned out beautiful and tender.

Also went for a bushwalk this morning and found this permanent camp setup in the middle of the bush. Not sure if it's someone's "holiday home" or something more sinister like marron poachers

Several times over the years when bush camping I have come across deserted/vacant semi-permanent camping set-ups. Everything there except personal items and no evidence of recent use, very suspicious.
 

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

HI Tadpole
Glad you had a great trip away. thanks for the photos
I reckon there would be a plantation of the old green leaf
material around there somewhere
Also I give you a 8 out of 10 for the meal (It very good)
I bet it went down well.
Regards Kev

My brother said exactly the same thing about the camp! I have found the odd illegal fishing net along the riverbank at times, plus the large pots made me think marron poachers. The meal turned out great. I've had a few failures since changing from the hardwood in the desert to using the local jarrah. Jarrah is a perfectly fine wood to use, it just seems to take longer to get the coals. I used heat beads on this trip

Same here Kevvie.
That green leafy stuff needs water.
They are also guarded. Sometimes with booby traps.
Be careful.

I would love to have a Jarrah supply nearby for my
  wood working and make some timber things out of it.
Maybe even a Camp Oven stirrer or two.
They say it is a nice timber.
Will you be using some Jarrah in your out door kitchen area.?
I am presently making an out door kitchen utensil stand so I can hang all of my camp oven stirrers  and other tools on
  It  will give me somewhere to put them while I am cooking.

Have a good one
regards Kev

I also think the owners of that camp would be up to no good. Be careful for sure.

I don't really have the correct tools to collect jarrah for woodworking, I have been meaning to cut smaller slabs to turn into cutting boards when I find the right tree. Purchasing jarrah from Bunnings or the like is quite an expensive way to get it

Hi Tadpole
Yes Bunning know  how to charge for their timber.
May I   suggest you looking for  some one who works with timber or maybe you will find someone who has a mobile sawmill business. Get a lovely piece of timber  for a good cutting board. All the best, Your out door kitchen area is
looking great.
regards Kev
