I have been told certain criteria is required, stand up and walk around bed, no need for getting fully dressed to go walkies, big heater, full size doona and coffee machine close by...............to be that high needs an escalator, ladders are found on ships.......... slept on ground from 1962 to 2003 not all for recreation, sometimes I got paid to do it, then moved to above ground accomodation, a wise decision also gave dirt roads a miss about the same time in 2003............

Ok, got most of your proper camping rider covered

I have been told certain criteria is required, stand up and walk around bed,
Standup? No problems. Hunched a bit, but as we age that should get easier by the day

No need for getting fully dressed to go walkies,

The labeling is very VERY important. If you don't label it, I don't want to hear about what happens later

Big heater,

catalytic heater

Full size doona
Not sure why, but ok. (I can jamb a full-size doona into a pillowcase)

Coffee machine close by

The coffee machine is very close by, just behind the ladder. It a vertical distance but I'm guessing closer than yours in Big Mal. In fact, if you miss a step on the way down you'll get to the coffee machine a lot quicker

any body else see the fuel can behind the coffee maker and where did you get the thongs in queensland colours?
Fuel is for the chainsaw (same pic) and the stove (same pic). The k-mart thongs are just "thongs", my selection is price based not colour based, but hey if you think they're QLD thongs and thats gets me over the border, then those are most certainly carefully selected QLD patriot thongs ..... c'mon the Maroons (whoops, almost typed morons)

Valid point raised, which Im grateful for. All my camping gear, that Ive been using whilst Ive been camping, is not up to spec. I must review all that camping gear Ive been using whilst Ive been camping. bwaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (wheres that damn middle finger emoji)
