Tvan/Topaz gathering WA Kwolyin
« on: April 25, 2016, 10:52:02 PM »
We had all arrived by Friday evening and setup for the weekend
Dicko and Stubbsy2 had the campfire burning by the time Beth and I arrived at 8.30pm
The campground was near capacity and sharing sites was essential
Beth and I shared a site with Maddo and they where great neighbours
There where 4 Tvans and 3 Topaz's for us to to view and discuss each of the setups in the morning
We had some help and friendly distractions during our setup and when finished where ready for bed

Saturday morning started of with a nice sleep in and slow start to the day
We meet all the group and had a chance to view and chat about our different setups
Discovered some great mods that we have been working on to customise our Track Trailer products to suit our travel styles
I did manage to fit breakfast in during the discussions
Lunch time rolled around and I started making lunch
Beth was having a chat and feeling guilty wandered in to help me finished the prep and enjoy a nice meal
Everyone had completed lunch and ready for the afternoon trip to Kokerbin Rock

Kokerbin Rock is a short distance from the Kwolyin campsite and travelled around the rock road to the well car park
The Historic well which is more than 20 metres deep and three metres in diameter was constructed by hand in the 1920s to 1930s
The well is impressive has a dry stone lining
Next was a wander to the summit to enjoy the 360 degree view over the surrounding farm land
We had an enjoyable afternoon in the sun and headed back to camp for the evenning meal and a campfire chat at Dicko and Stubbsy2 campsite

Sunday morning started with a chat with the neighbours and breakfast
Each of the campsite where visited for a chat
The Merredin trip was delayed for some goodbye as some had work and family commitments
The convoy head for Shakleton to view the sculptures and the smallest bank
Next was Bruce Rock for a wander down the main street and lunch in the park
The machinery museum is interesting and worth a look

The trip leader was not concentrating and had some navigating challenges so a gravel road detour was required to get back on track
The next stop was Totagin Rock reserve for a wander around the rock and historic well
This well is quite small and a huge contrast to the Kokerbin well
Next was the trip to Merredin and the Military Museum
The museum was not open so next was Merredin Peak to see the historic railway dam and army hospital site

The trip home was a series of gravel roads to make our way back to Kwolyin campsite
The planned trip had a missing road so a detour was required to add to the entertainment
The camp was reach just on dark and the evening meal was next
The campfire was at AKBone's campsite and bring a log for the fire and your chair
The evening was magic with some interesting conversation and campfire treats
Wine and Mint Chocolate Biscuits

We woke Monday morning to some light showers
Breakfast was in full swing and the neighbour wandered over with his portable diesel gas heater which we put through its paces
Seeing the unit and having a play confirmed my thoughts about fitting one to the Topaz
Chatting at the neighbours was next and goodbye's as we all started for home or the Anzac service in Bruce Rock
Beth and I completed the pack up with a great trip home

Thanks to AKBone, Stubbys2, Dicko, Big Jeff, Diane Johnson & Maddo for a great weekend
Trip planning for our next adventure is underway and will keep you posted
