The old website was good to navigate but yeah, got to keep up with the times.
Looking forward to the day you guys put out an Li version of the Protrail, if that day ever comes. Not interested in the weight saving, just to get rid of the morning sag
My feet go mad at night. It's not really pain, it was a day worth living!

Holding image for the 'tents' section has someone camped in the daywalk only area of Cradle Mtn. Tas PAWS won't be pleased with that.

Still love my Scarp1!

:(

I'd not have just bought 5 Tarptents. C'mon, don't be like Z packs.. there are always regulations (if common sense isn't enough).

I like. Gotta get rid of "maximum-scale: 1" from the viewpoint meta tag tho; means you can't pinch-zoom on mobile for no benefit.

Code: Select all

Could have just been a lunch rest setup by a day walker. Or setup for BWA photo contest. [WINKING FACE]

I figured it was just ignorance, I've no doubt there's heaps of more appropriate images. No doubt Franco will sort it out when he gets wind of it...

It will be fixed soon.
The photo of course was from one of our customers , not from a staff member or someone paid to take it.

Fixed now.
I remembered where I had seen that shot. It was in the Gallery (photos from customers) before, probably had been there for a few years. No one commented then.( I asked Henry about it...)

Be careful about starting that conversation.

I got into a major blue on another bushwalking site by commenting on a someone posting a pic of a camp in the Cradle daywalk area.
Some people just can'[t cope with criticism. :roll:

You getting into a blue NNW? Sounds made-up. Must be fake news. ;)
