    How often do you get out to the bush. Camping, Wheeling or both

    I've being camping for a good part of 20 years on and off. We stopped for a few years until the youngest was out of nappies during the day. We use to be able to camp at least 1/2 a dozen times a year during the winter the colder the bigger the fire would have to be as long as it didn't rain. However the last few years have been difficult to get away, between work,family funtions and the kids playing sport, we are luckily to go once of twice a year. The last one was Easter 2013
    As for the wheeling part I haven't gone (as a driver ) in 4 years. So I've got a lot of time to make up guys. wink, wink who's going out soon.

    Would like to hear from the Patrol family how often you go

    Not nearly as much as I would like, the kids have slowed it down over the last few years however our youngest is almost old enough for extended trips.
    In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

    Always have out family Easter break at the murray and recently we have been doing a lot of forum meets which is great!!!

    I would like to aim at a once a month cycle but as always, work and finance holds us down!!!

    We probably get out 3-4 times per year camping/4WDing: Easter and Queens Bday are locked in, and then usually organise one other long weekend, plus a quick getaway between xmas/nye to recover from holiday season craziness

    Would love to do more day trips or overnighters, or even just doing a Sat arvo where everyone works on their cars .. but it's hard with everyone being so busy!

    We have been averaging about 3 -4 forum meets a year with 2 being big... then there are the smaller meets with a few mates plus getting back into hunting so thats a bunch of nights away in a year..... wish it was even more.

    Sounds like everyone wants to get out more.
    Ahh. Only if we didn't have such busy lives.
