I think Covid has messed up a lot of things.

Saturday I drove for near 8 hours from home to Dorrigo.  We then heard of the proposed border shutdown so next day (Sunday) drove half way home and then the other half today.

Getting too old for all of that.

Make the best of it Dave.
Good a place as anywhere to self-isolate.

Hi Dave
Thanks very  much for the photos. I wish I had a camp
like that close to where I live.

It will be a lot safer at home using your own amenities.
