      Campground Camping @ Brownhill Creek

      February 12 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 93 °F

      Dry camping was fine at Twelve Apostles. The temperature was very comfortable.

      But yesterday, as we moved inland, the temperature started heating up. Opening all the windows — thanks to each of them having a fly screen — sufficed to cool things down once we settled into the rest area. But it did take a while for the temp to feel comfortable.

      Knowing that the temp was forecasted to go up and up and up as we drove up and up and up, last night I went online and booked us into a G’day Park … the Brownhill Creek Caravan Park … about 4 miles from the Adelaide CBD.

      It was getting on towards 3:00p when we pulled into the Brownhill Creek Caravan Park in Mitcham at the end of our driving day.

      We have been assigned to A3 … a wide pull through site with 20A electricity (standard from what I can tell). We also have a sullage point at our site … meaning a place to connect our hose to dump the grey water. While Australia allows dumping grey water anywhere when dry camping … it is sink/shower water and the plants/soil like getting a free drink, you have to use the sullage point when in a campground. Black water from the toilet goes to a cassette, which you carry to a dump point to empty.

      While the temp had been comfortable when we set out on our drive this morning, it had steadily increased. By the time we got to Mitcham, the thermometer was reading mid-90F. Before doing anything else, we got the electricity connected so we could get the A/C going. We also closed the curtain between the cockpit and living room, and pulled up all the shades. Good practice for when we are driving the Nullarbor later on in our caravan trip.

      The laundry is done. Dinner is over — we had one of Mui’s frozen home-cooked meals tonight. The journal is caught up. Time to relax.
