On site accommodation

Who stays on site for long periods of time while dredging do you use a tent or get a caravan close or build a shelter etc. How long do you stay there before have to do a good gas run etc. I think if want to stay for a while you would need nice accommodation or else would be missable and then not want to as hard.

guess that depends on how close your claim is to civilisation, ive done up to 7days tenting , dredging is hard work so a good bed and nights sleep will b more productive, on the other hand sandflies will wake u up early, im off dredging for 5 weeks and in gonna mix it up, mainly tenting with the odd night in a rented cottage, im lucky my claims not remote

I have a camper trailer that I leave onsite so just need to take milk and bread and beer of course! just got home from 4 days there but could stay for much longer. When you finish dredging and go back to base and have a cold beer and a hot shower it makes the hard work all worth while :slight_smile:

yes I remember long walks back to my tent margarine that looked like yellow soup, milk that was lumpy and one million sandflys to welcome u home , so I dont mind a hot shower and flick tv on at all
