    Camping under trees!

    Very luck to have escaped injury. If you were going to park under a tree for shade you would imagine the bigger the safer. You just can't pick them can you? There's going to be heaps of trees dropping in most of the bush fire affected areas. The rains have softened the ground around them and...

    I've been trying to work out how to make a mask fit and still have the screen visible! o_O

    Can't get parts from China through eBay?

    I bought a new Apple computer two weeks ago. Paid for 16 Gb of ram. It is made to order and was supposed to be there in a week. Apparently even though it's rare for Apple to get a virus the Coronavirus will delay it for a month.

    Donation disgrace.

    I think I could survive OK on the miserable few percent the bank would pay on a couple of hundred million. :)

    Newbie question, which 4WD to buy

    I have had 6 Toyota 4wd's in over 40 years and never a major problem. You usually pay more for them compared to others but, 5 years later and you'll probably get back close to what you paid. That said, there are many other good 4wd vehicles on the market today too.

    Donation disgrace.

    I think that because Australia has always suffered through Bush Fires and Floods that the Government need to take charge of all handouts. We had a case last week where members of an outlaw bikie gang were arrested for claiming money for losing a home in the fires. These grubs come out of the...

    Donation disgrace.

    I can't believe that they allow these charities to skim 60% off the takings for Administration fees. It's a load of rubbish. So, next time you're eating dinner and the advert comes on TV saying "While you enjoying your meal 500 children WILL DIE!" Sponsor a child for only $10 a month and save a...

    The New Land Rover Defender 110 rescues a Scania Truck in the Namib Desert

    The Dynamic LandRover Duo could wear Camo tights with Pommy Flag undies on the outside and a LandRover logo on their capes! Just use your imagination!

    80 series LC buy or not buy ?

    Get somebody to do a compression test on anything you're looking at buying. It's the best way to get a firm idea of how healthy the engine is. I agree with the general opinion that if you're patient the right one will come up.

    The New Land Rover Defender 110 rescues a Scania Truck in the Namib Desert

    You're right! I don't recall seeing a single axle either. They may have been more common in the U.S. but I would think mainly on the 4wd one's. I've never been a huge F Truck fan. Have driven many in days gone by but they were a very sloppy thing on the road. I worked for the Sydney Waterboard...

    The New Land Rover Defender 110 rescues a Scania Truck in the Namib Desert

    Can you imagine how boring and predictable life would be if advertisers were forced to tell the truth about products. Buy New Sparkle Dish-washing liquid, It has a rather pungent odor like some kind of off fruit, it's difficult to remove the cap from the bottle and has virtually no grease...

    The New Land Rover Defender 110 rescues a Scania Truck in the Namib Desert

    You could be right, but according to the specs dual wheels were the heavy duty option. It does have 350 badges! I can't imagine them saying it was a 350 if it was one of the smaller one's either. They'd be milking it even more if it had been.

    The New Land Rover Defender 110 rescues a Scania Truck in the Namib Desert

    As I said I clearly remember them being in trouble over the ad as they broke 3 before making it to the top and were had for false advertising. The heavy duty F350 had dual rear wheels for extra carrying capacity. The specs for the standard F350 rate it as only 1 ton (907.5 Kg) load capacity. The...

    The New Land Rover Defender 110 rescues a Scania Truck in the Namib Desert

    Yep, that's the one. It was an F350 not 100. Same rubbish only bigger.
