Her “non-hiker’s guide” gives us lots of inspiration to get our there and do something we don’t usually do. We’ll also catch up with Adrian Ryan in the second part of his help-a-friend-get-a-caravan crusade, and pop across to Kangaroo Island for a good look around this wonderful place. The best places to camp, ideas for camp tucker, fishy tales and getaway machines – all that and more in November issue. On sale 12 October, 2005.
