Hi all Aussies.

I am in the process of acquiring some camping gear etc as I am about to basically start living on the bike. Will have no home as such Wink

Anyways, there is a big box chain store called Anaconda that sell camping and adventure gear. They currently have 25% off everything in store until the 26th or something like that.

Im not affiliated with them at all, its just that time of year again and some of you may be after some gear.

They have Blackwolf stuff too, which is an Aussie brand and is guaranteed for life.

I got a sleeping mat, sleeping bag, bag liner, stuff sacks, first aid kit, stainless billy, water bladder, waterproof rack bag for my swag etc etc

how did the gear perform Floyd . Anaconda has some good gear at times and prices aren't too bad for some bits.
I've been searching through the free camps book since the Tassie trip , and found a few good spots within a couple of hours from Sydney.
Bumaroo between Oberon and Goulburn looks good. may be worth a look for an off roadish type K.

Bummaroo is a good spot. very green. Bollards to keep cars off the grass, but bikes can sneak through. The Casper Rally is run there in June. Cold place in winter.

Also, no need for any sort of off road capabilty. Its bitumen right to the turn off then maybe 50 metres of gravel in the drive in.

Bill , it might be best to open a new thread for Bummaroo. Would you like to make first offer?
In the meantime , as we are talking camping gear , and as some of us here have had the pleasure of overnighting with our K's, the subject of what to take has prompted many of us to re evaluate our gear.
So before we all head off to the shops ,
what are the basics , the not so basics but have to have , and the " what did I bring that for?"
this may help fellow campers reform their ideas , especially with new products on the market.
Gaz was showing me his old faithful bed roll at RT's, something I'm sure he will never part with. money well spent were the words used.

I just wrote on one of the longest posts I have in a while and then lost it all....


anyways in summary the gear is performing rather well. 99% of it is not exclusive to, or made by anaconda. They just sell it cheaply....

Ive also bought a lot of gear from wildearth (online only)

I will make a short video at some point going over all my gear as some will no doubt find it interesting...

always a good idea ....before posting ( afteradding real time ) to copy the text that you have created

too many times has similar happened me Floyd

then you find that the web page has become unstable - refreshed and what you think.... is good ....disappears

cheers mate
