Our Glampers have been full most weekends, far exceeding our expectations.
Last week a young engineer called Josh who works on mining camps all over Australia arrived with his French girlfriend not long before dark.
“We’ve got to climb Mt Buggery at dusk,” he declared. An hour later after sunset I notice lights up near the top of the hill. Josh had left it a bit late, and descending the hill in pitch black was not a good idea. Taking our dog Angus, I headed off to wait for them at the bottom in case of disaster, and eventually they emerged and were shocked to see us waiting. “Wonderful,’ was all Josh could say. “It was hairy, but we loved it.”
And off they headed for their glamper, knowing the fire-pit in its 44 gallon drum was ready to be lit and the panel heater meant inside was nice and warm. And not content with that, Josh was keen to get out in the dark and spy a wombat in the big burrow not far away!
