I'm assuming the CLGFC footy budget took care of the bill? ;)

Perfect weather up here in the riverland atm Boon.
Pubbed it at Barmer on Sat, did Wilkadene, Renmark and Berri on Sunday, Loxton yesterday and just heading out not to have luncch at Banrock Station near Kingston on the Murray.
So much better than when we were up here 4 yeara ago and copped 45 degree heat most days.
Difficult night having BBQs downing a few beers overlooking the golf course too.

15 days away so we could still get anything, but, such is the beauty of the Murray it could be 15 and pissing down or 38 and blazing sun and we'll have just as good a time. Cannot wait.

Yeah true, as long as there's air con on the houseboat you're laughing.
What route are you taking?
We did the Renmark to border and back via Wilkadene, at least you'll have a lot more water than we did, got as shallow as 30cm before the last lock when we went.

Morgan up as far as we can get, probably to Waikerie or thereabouts.

We've got 2 couples who have done a couple of houseboats and 2 couples who haven't so we'll cover some miles for them to enjoy the sights but we're all thirsty people so we'll be parked by 4pm most days. :D

Sounds awesome!
Yeah I'd hate to think of how much our houseboat owner made out of our empties when our trip finished! :lol:

Food at Banrock was unreal when we were up there in December.

Due to holding a $1,600 Jetstar voucher from the failed Bali trip we are planning a Tassie trip in late July to catch Roos/Cats game and spend a week going up at down the each coast including a game at Barnbougle, we were only there in 2017 but the 6 nights wasnt enough and loved it.

Thinking a trip to Melbourne for Roos/Crows in April also.
