Re: XMAS 2012 - JANOWEN HILLS - 24 & 25 NOV Trip report
Wow that was yet another fantastic weekend!

For all of you slackoes who did not attend you missed out on a fantastic venue and the weather was good to us for a change!

A bulk of the members turned up Saturday morning but I decided to head up after lunch on Friday, as it turned out was a good chance to aquatint myself with new members Vicky and Greg plus a good friend of there's as they had been camping at the location for a few days, Vicky for those who have not met then yet is the Sister of long standing member Alan Counselle.
My timing of arrival could not have been better as Pizza was being served and somehow there was enough for me 8-)
Saturday morning after fixing up the park for my fees we checked out the venue for the party and decided that we would give the shed a miss, the fire place as it turned out was a much better party place as we could all sit around the fire chewing the rag as it were over how the members not there were missing out :o

Saturday morning once the main body of members turned up we headed out to play around the park, we headed up to the main lookout that has a fantastic view over the camp grounds, wish I had some photo's but yep I was slack so hopefully someone else can post them up for me Wink
We continued to play around the park revisiting tracks that most have done on previous visits, like so many other places the tracks have been affected by the wet conditions, some have changed from difficult to easy and others wow that was fun!
This continued for a few hours before heading back to camp for some R&R plus preparations for meals that night.

I could list all the camp oven meals that were cooked but I am sure there will be one that I missed so maybe someone else cold list them out but due to the overwhelming response to camp oven cooking and the limited number of people I decided to only cook up some pasta and keep the nags for Breakfast, after much ribbing for being slack I think it actually worked out really well, yes there was some food left over but not much.. and not one meal was a flop!
Actually it went so well that I am making an executive decision - from now on ALL trips will involve a camp oven or two.. after all damper is an important part of any camp meal :lol:

Today.. Sunday was a lazy day with some heading out to play, the rest of us just sat around drinking and chatting, later on moving down to the creek to cool off a little Smile

The trip home was uneventful for me until I was unpacking the car, just before closing up the garage I noticed the car was on a bad lean!! on further inspection it was found that my rear passenger side tier was flat!! no idea when that happened or why but it must not have been too bad when I arrived home as it was not felt, my guess is a nail or something like that.. yet another job for another day, handy it happened at home as I have a few working spares out the back :roll:

Here are a few photo's from the party...
