Scout Camp

The other week we decided to go for a trip out to Scout Camp, otherwise known as Mananggaym to the local Yolngu people. It was a beautiful place. Nice quiet river, very layed back. As you can see from the photos the car was a bit of a mess when we got home. The suspension lift in the Jeep is brilliant. It can now go places that many other 4x4s can't.

Also I just read in the newspaper that the Cato river is open again for permits, however they are $200 per car per weekend and the permit specifies that you don't venture out of the mouth of the river. I am very dissapointed by the price of the permits. Yes they have upgraded the boat ramp and camp sites but that means for three mates to go fishing with their families and have a nice weekend it will cost $600 for the weekend. If we are not careful we may end up with a system like England where you have to pay for access to all rivers and nature reserves.
