Brisbane to Yeppoon - Day 1 of Britz relocation

WOW what a huge day.  700 kms from Brisvagas to Yeppoon.  The drive was great to Gin Gin and we made great time, but then came the roadworks grrrrr.
As we have never used a camper before, nore have we ever stayed at a caravan park, but needing to get to Yeppoon to meet friends it meant only 2 small breaks throughtout the day for 10 mins, so were pretty tired when we got in, and starving.
Note and important tip:  get in before dark on your first night or familiarize yourself with little things like where are the lights etc, thank god these are similar to boats as well we had our headlights - but these are things I'm loving about NINKERING, retirement and traveling being out of the comfort zone.
Had a great night with friends who provided a seafood platter hot and cold, wine and beer which we ate in the dark at one of the sites picnic table as we said " who would have thought "  generally we meet in 5 star places, eat at 5 star restaurants, drink top shelf but you know we had a fabulous time. NEW experiences are good for you.
Finally worked out the bed and after a great feed, wine and a long day slept like a baby. These things r airconditioned which is yet another bonus.
Staying at the Big 4 at Yeppoon, nice, clean will give more on these places on our return.
