    Not the most exciting spot, but viable???
    I am down with that, spring bunnys are everywhere, a few redskins about and trout in the river if anybody knows how to catch them without a net or rifle?
    Or the Leitham/branch for that matter.

    Wow, lets make it happen. Do we grab a long weekend or is everyone likely to be away hunting? or just grab the last weekend of June, or the 1st weekend of August take a sickday for the Friday or Monday and go for it?
    Teetotal or the Leatham works I reckon, the Leatham offers a bit more freedom for noise making and a bonfire, also ore option to head away from camp in different directions if there are a few numbers, downside is just the one longdrop if we were to stay near a hut.
    Teetotal has coffees for the wifes... and more toilets. Also has an ice-skating pond if you are keen
    Caves Hut up the Letham is easily accessible by 4wd, we have followed a Subaru in there that only had issues at a creek crossing near the hut (ankle deep water)

    Someone who knows the school hol dates would be usefull.
    I am keen to do leathem if you reckon my wagon will get up there ok. But, as you say. Teetotal is a bit more civilised. Doesn't have to be about the hunting.

    We slept there in the car a few weeks ago, it has been set up as a freedom camper type scenario, large gravel area for the vans, and a small grassed area for tents. I may have a picture

    Yeah. Was down there last Saturday. Just wasn't sure if you were still allowed to camp there.

    Could be keen. Tee total or leatham should be able to get campmeat (ie venison) ok esp if its close to spring. Both offer huge areas to hunt and spread out if theres a few into chasing the reds. Tee total cold hole in middle of winter, prob leatham too . How about labour weekend in OCt?
