3rd October 2015 - First Camping Trip.

 

Finally, the time arrived for our first trip. We had been planning to go to the Berg River Resort as our "initiation" trip, but this kind of surprised us. Branden, our Kombi mates was going on a week's holiday camping in Betty, and beginning with the Hermanus Whales and Wheels festival. So, I buckled down and got the last remaining items in Winston sorted. Friday night, all packed, and excited to go.

 

Saturday was overcast and a slight rain falling, but we were off. Met up with branden along the N2, and met up with Donovan and his Bus at the False bay One stop. left and got to Hermanus problem-free by 10:30 am.

The show itself was a little disappointing, but the camp at Onrus was an absolute Jol. Great evening had by all, and we managed to watch the Rugby as well. All in all, a successful drive up, camp out and drive home. Had to make a small modification to the Back mattress as it didn't feel right at the campsite, but will test it again soon on the next trip. Drawers and cupboards need a little more though in how to pack them properly, but on the whole, an enjoyable weekend for sure, and Winston was flawless..
