All sabers and partners more than welcome. Just a note that in past we have had kids camp as well, so a bit of respect in that concern is very appreciated. It's cold enough to die from, so yeah save ur penny's and buy the warmest clothing and camp gear u can. I'm looking forward to it. Have a few new hot spots I can show y'all.

Oberon pine forests area, as per the thread's title. It's out west of the Blue Mountains, probably about 2.5 - 3 hours from Sydney.

I camped in the area a few years ago, in June, and thought I was going to die. And I can stand some pretty cold environments. I've camped some pretty cold camps in my time; it was worse than Kosciuszko in June or Upstate New York in December :o . I'm a bit nervous, but Incog and Col in the same place at the same time is not something I'd want to pass up. Yee ha!

Yeah I thought I was going to die the first time I camped there. Especially when the funghi is in effect. I could literally feel every organ in my body start to chill. Next year I bought a 250 dollar thermal sleeping bag, which keeps u warm to -10. Best money I have ever spent. Thermal long johns will set u back around 60 bums, I like the Sherpa brand. I'm lookin forward to you educating me about the edibles that grow there marcel, and having a stiff scotch with col. Seriously don't worry bout asking if u can come if ur a member here, would be great to meet y'all.

2 nights is enough before hot showers beckon. Hillbilly was talking about camPing down closer to the caves. I'll wait until he chimes in to discuss.
