spent a couple of nights over at the Dam to test out the canopy in cold conditions, temps reached -4 & -5 deg Celsius over night, although i have insulation plywood & marine carpet through out the majority of the canopy the gull wing doors only have the insulation & are going to need to be lined in ply & carpet also to try and retain some heat, the inside steel door frames had a film of ice forming on them & was cold to touch unlike the rest of the interior of the canopy, ll in all it wasn't too bad to sleep in having the doors closed to stop the cold chill coming from the wind, should be better next time out after a few tweaks here & there
The dog enjoyed himself & was off exploring every chance he got
The Dam level was down considerably from the last time i was there, the drought is really starting to have an effect on the water supply.
This first picture was taken in Dec 2017 & the second picture was taken on this trip last week.
last time i was here i was fishing halfway along the ramp, this time the whole ramp was out of the water.
All in all we had a great few days away & enjoyed getting out of the house for a couple of nights
Thanks everyone, looking forward to getting away a lot more now, I am going to put a notebook in the cab & start writing things down like camp gear i need & don't need & things i think of that can improve the setup but so far so good,
finally found a new heart for my cruiser, brought a 12ht engine, hoping it will arrive sometime this week, plan is to just do gaskets & rear main seal before i clean it up & start putting it in, i will probably do a full rebuild on it later on down the track once i can save enough dollars to do so
