The only colour issue is the STS tarp!
As for the car, Matt grey with vertical stripes would do too.

PS it's 11yo under 100K for a quarter of new price. Or 1/8-1/16 of a Bentley ;)

Emptied boot today and refined pantry items, ready to roll out.

Flogging a Bentley Sports down a dirt track to get to the trail head...

You'd be the Bunker Spreckels of bushwalking

Found a FB group called Birds of Oz, loads of great photos from members, worth a look!

Anyone come across any April 1st products today?

Funny how the Yanks trademark "Ugg", no dramas. An American company calling themselves "Ugg Australia" no less. But when it hits home...

Suck it up, they've been playing this game on the rest of the World for ages.

Wonder when they're going to hit overseas companies, such as the UnZud meal makers?

Apology letter from Backcountry. Don't know if they mean it or not but it does show not sucking it up and getting angry can make a difference

How good is the Bureau of Meterology forcast!

Helps me on an almost daily basis to choose camp and angle of my shelter, or to book in somewhere/go stay at a mates place.

The last few years I take any rain forecast with a grain of salt, but wind changes and temps are spot on.

Another good weather app is yr.no

I've always been undecided about the hue, even after using this wonderful site for many a year. But at least I know at a cursory glance which tab is open.

I'm decidedly hostile towards people who believe that white text on a black background is effective.

Um, back to serious issues . . .
