We shared the stage with the legendary Ron Wilson!

It was a week out from the Lismore 4WD Caravan, Camping and Marine Show and I just received a phone call from Ryan saying he won’t be able to do the show because he has to go to Emerald for work and could not get out of it. So it looked like it was just going to be Marcel and me from Australian Outdoor Adventures doing the show.

During the week I called up Ron to tell him that it’s just Marcel, and I am going to be staying at your place, I cheekily said unless you wanted to mic up and get on stage with us, Half an hour later he sent me a text saying that he would do it.

How awesome is that, we get to do a show with a real camp oven cook who has been collecting and using camp ovens for almost 35 years. While Ron had never been to one of our shows, he fitted in nicely, and that’s probably because he shares the same beliefs about camp oven cooking as we do.

What we talk about on stage

  • Heat sources and heat control.
  • Types of camp ovens.
  • Cleaning and maintaining Camp Ovens
  • We demonstrate some of our favourite recipes
  • And more.

Ron Wilson “It’s this big, 24 inches to be exact!”

No, I’m not talking about what your thinking, I’m talking about Ron Wilson’s big camp oven and boy did it get a lot of attention over the weekend. A while ago Nick, my brother Marcel from Australian Outdoor Adventures and myself threw our swags on the roof and set off for a boys weekend to check out his new camp oven. click here to read that story
