Stockyard Gully Western Australia
I thought I would share with you my first camping trip with my DIY hammock and neo 9x9 tarp.
We arrived at the first night campsite at 8:30pm so set up was done in the dark with my head light, there were not many trees to pick from and it took a while to find some.
The night and morning air was full of condensation and the tarp dripped with water but I remained dry. The only time I got wet was entering or exiting the hammock.

We then hiked out around lake Indoon and picked up a 4x4 track and followed that to Stockyard Gully which is a huge cave system. The whole area is dotted with caves but stockyard was used by the early settlers to pen up cattle being driven on horse back down to the city.

All hanging is totally off track and there are no places set up for tent camping either.
As you can see the bush here is very thick and there are not a lot of trees around, being close to the coast it is mainly just scrub.

I have also set up a Google earth file if you would like to look and that is available here, http://tinyurl.com/273cqs
It was a good trip about 23 miles all up
