I thought you packed the ... {Giveaway}

There is nothing like it - road trips and camping holidays .Whether it be the sense of finding a new exotic location or the experience of getting away from housework it all , traveling has always been on the list of top five of things I love to do best.

Hopefully after January 7th when I finish #12 chemo - we are heading on away camping for a week or two - with the caravan - to have a little break and some family time...with the boggie boards because they were left at home when we went to Western Australia we have 6 of them.

We have camped with our tent many times , now I prefer a little comfort sleeping under a million stars with a solid roof . On our WA roadtrip we free and bush camped without power many nights because we had a battery to run lights and a gas fridge, stove,toilet and shower too. Soft ! who me ?

A beach was behind those bushes ....
We had water views after a shower of torrential rain
On our travels we still set up 'camp' outside to eat , with gate-crashing bugs, mozzies and flies, sharing stories and bonding around the camp table, as you do, and as people have done through generations the glow of a camping lantern (because camp fires are risky banned through summer).

One thing we needed was a better lantern at night - we just didn't want to blow cash on something that didn't work well or broke.

I've now found the perfect light - we haven't actually taken it camping yet but did test it out at home. It's from Coleman's - they have everything covered for family camping trips

CPX6 X2 Lantern & Flashlight in One – If James Bond went camping this would be his lantern!
Flick the button at the top for the hidden flashlight to pop out the top.

A bonus that if your lantern does run out of charge you can still have light from the flashlight [1.5hrs].

The CPX X2 run on CPX technology which means that the power pack for this lantern can be used across all of the CPX6 range. You can also choose whether to use the power pack or disposable batteries.. RRP $99.99  - NOTE- (4D cell batteries or rechargeable pack sold separately)

[PS Lantern run time is fantastic - Low 100 hrs/ Med 40 hrs / High 20hrs]

I am coveting an easy Lounger – is there a better way for me to relax this Christmas and it has two drink holders ! RRP $79.99

I wish we were going back here to Lucky Bay.

A nifty stocking filler for whole family are waterproof Playing Cards – how clever ! this will make it fun to continue the card game on the boat, at the beach or even in the pool. RRP $7.99
We have amassed an arsenal of Coleman's outdoor camping gear over the years - lanterns , stoves, coolers, tents, sleeping bags and airbeds make up the long list of their popular products.[The tent is buried in our shipping container or shed at the moment.]
