    Good luck with all that Matt.

    10 years ago I remember spending 14 hot days at a caravan park down south, with two dogs on a wire by the end of the fortnight the campsite had decidedly deteriorated.
    There wasn't much grass to be begin with around our van and the dogs had tramped down or dug up the remainder.
    I religiously picked up the dog poop every morning but after a week and no rain there was a decided dog pee odour that I had to get the hose onto it.
    At this park we were usually allowed an enclosed campfire so went to visit a local farmer friend of ours can came back with a load of wood. I split it all up but the following day total fire bans came into force and we didn't get to use any of it
    In those days I used to drink and the stash of empties by the side of the van had stacked up so much that when we left it was easier to wheel a recycling bin over from the bin area. We even heard other campers walking by commenting on "the stash"
    The last night there was a thunder storm that tore off one side of the tarp covering the dog crate and spread washing hanging out to dry all over the the barren ground around the van which had turned to mud.
    Other that that we had a good time.

    Other little details you need to add to avoid detection:

    Nicotine stained fingers (yellow food colouring can help here)
    Distrust of consonants; try to communicate using only vowels where possible although all words beginning with the letter “C” are exempt.
    Reliance on only using verbs, nouns and adjectives that begin with the letter “C”
    Too many teeth (ie… having some teeth); reduce smiling as much as possible
    Perpetual rage at the injustice of your situation; you can help mask the absence of the absence of tooths if you maintain an outer visage of a bulldog licking urine off of a thistle.

    Probably best if Sally stays inside the caravan; her presence can be noted by the neighbours quite simply by the random throwing of obscenities and empty VB bottles out the door in equal quantities. Having seen the odd photo of her we all know you’re punching well above your weight; in Boganville that mere yawning chasm will rapidly gain Grand Canyon proportions…

    A small side discretion,

    As most have possibly gathered my Grasp of the English language, is definitely lacking.
    I can crash Spell Check on a good day.

    I was number 5/6 scrawny kids dragged up in a Boring middle class family in the Burbs of South east suburbs of Melbourne.

    My father was a primary school teacher at a well know private school in Melbourne (Caulfield Grammar Malvern house).
    An was well regarded amongst is pupils an fellow teachers as having Perfect English an Grammar skills an being extremely well read.
    Too the point he was constantly being asked too private tutor kids from Primary school to university.

    If I ever dared use the F word or the S word, at home in front of my Farther, he would make me explain the meaning an context of either words.[emoji3064][emoji3064]

    I even said “Bloody Wog” once, that was received with a lecture of my family heritage, as my father’s mother was Italian.

    But by the time I hit Secondary School, dad I think was basically “over teaching 40 hours a week than coming home an dealing with me, I was a Little wayward as a child[emoji6].

    But my father had the best wit you could ever come across, for my lack of wanting to “Learn” as a slight punishment [emoji23] my report cards from School were regularly Correct by my father an sent back too the school via post, only too be “re” returned too me by my school teachers.
    Omg how bloody embarrassing.

    It still makes me laugh too this days.

    Cheers Matt.

    Thanks for the load of firewood yesterday Matt. As I lived in a caravan in a 24hour rest area near Townsville many years ago I should be the expert on boganisums. you need to put a couch outside the van so you can sit there drinking VB or meth and orange juice.
    I am learning, slowley.

    petrol/diesel gennys will obviously cost fuel. How go the government grants? Telstra second hand batteries were the old school back up for early hippie solar systems. Solar and wind MIGHT still get subsidies? Gens for back up? If used as a camp spot storage will probably cover you.
