Kit your car/tent out correctly you shouldn’t be cold (and that’s without a heater). That said I haven’t tested my setup at -15, is toasty warm at -6 though.

When I was a lifty in 1988 I lived in Perisher but remember spending one night with a work mate in his caravan at Jindy C Park .
It was the coldest bloody night I had there in 3 months .
Seen the Angels that night at the pub .

I guess the only problem with living and working in the mountains is that everyone knows that your sick day corresponds to fresh snowfall.

Years ago my work people were oblivious to snow weather. Then this particular admin lady started and when mate and i (same employer) called it in sick from behind a rock (to get out of the wind) she'd say something along the lines of. 40cm fresh snow last night. Have fun skiing. I farkin hated that.

Quite a few tents at JB plain this evening. Rocking some new half metre long snow pegs this year.

Anyone had any issues putting multiple swags on the same site at NRMA jindy? I know some parks have a limit of one per site. But it doesn't say anything in the booking conditions I got with my confirmation email. I have paid for the amount of people that will be on the site, I can't see there will be any issues... will there?

A very long way from everybody
Hey brains trust:
Thinking of shelling out big $ for a thermal blanket for the camper trailer to hopefully reduce condensation (and maybe stop canvas collapsing under snow buildup). Island Bend in August type scenario. Anybody had experience with blankets? Worthwhile?

Have just cancelled for this weekend at IB if anyone is looking for a spot.
This still available?
I contradict myself saying I never book a few posts back, but I'll be having a proper camp on Saturday with a fire etc rather than quietly sneaking up after dark and sleeping in the car.
Should probably have a booking.
