Our Extreme Venture

Day Seven - Oysters and Fires Galore

Day Eight - Camp Sights

Our Extremely Fishy last day at V.O.C. Pacific involved a casual stroll down the highway to Wheeler's Oyster Farm for a talk on how the little yummies are farmed. The visit also involved a tasting for those who were game. A few of us were even forced to but some extra to have on the way back to camp or leave to have with lunch before the trip back to Canberra.

Once we were settled in our old campsite back at Cottermouth, it was obvious there were bush fires nearby. Little did we know what the fires would mean.

Day eight was our first day back at Cottermouth after the Extreme Expeditions were over and done with. Many of the Venturers and leaders went offsite on this day to an activity somewhere in or around Canberra. The intrepid leader decided to pace himself and stay in camp on this day to have a look around and see what there was to see.

The Venturers look and listen as we are told about the how and why the thousands of racks are made to ensure the highest yield.

Back at camp and the bush fires loom over us.

The infamous School O' Fartz and some of it's inhabitants. Many a body has left here in a changed form.

The shower block.

Contingent Headquarters complete with flags.

The obligatory signpost showing distances to all the cities the overseas visitors came from.

Roverscope. Where would we have been without the Rovers?????

The information board at 'GO!'

The queue at the mess tent.

The Snowgum 'Corner Store' where you could buy anything from water pistols to those other things which were sold at $2 for 3. I saw plenty of water in the pistols, but not much water in the other things.
