    So we are still tweaking. As it is - non members, lots of ads. Not too many, but there will be a few. We monitor how many pages people look at all the time and continually tweak that. Members logged in, less ads. Contributing members less ads. Paid up members no ads on the forum. There is...

    Another push for sensible towing limits...

    https://4x4earth.com/podcasts/27-caravans-crash/ I interviewed Mike Clayton from Clayton's Towing about some of the issues. He has seen a lot of caravan crashes. A lot of it is people just not understanding how to tow, so better education and licensing I think is really important.

    Wonnangatta Couple from Drouin ??

    Absolutely!!!!!!!!! With the rise of the crime podcasts, I think they look for people to assist with the background information and a lot of it is off the record. I think a lot of the time people know who dunnit, it is just a case of proving it.

    Wonnangatta Couple from Drouin ??

    I can't remember, I think they were keen to talk to some members about the work that they had done in the search and possibly some background info. From memory they were going to sign up and PM them. I wasn't super keen on giving out details, so left it up to them from memory. It was quite a...

    Bought a Masport 6 burner

    Thanks mate, I would have loved a smoker, but I just don't think we would use it enough and these steaks were cooked in now time, so with a family and all, getting a quick feed is a big requirement. Still going to try a brisket in it - do a nice rub and see how it goes. Won't have the smoking...

    Bought a Masport 6 burner

    We've started just smashing some potatoes into the food processor and a bit of salt, pepper and cumin and they come out a treat. Going to have a crack at a brisket.

    Insane mud convoy

    We should go out and do the Otways more often, we've only done it once. I remember it was pretty damn muddy.

    Insane mud convoy

    Here are some German trucks making their way through the Congo rainforest. Loaded down with supplies, I reckon they are chewing through the diesel! Cool way that they are using the bars to link the vehicles. Not only pulling but I reckon that first vehicle would have been getting a bit of a...

    Pat Callinan now drives a VW Amarok

    Is Pat still on TV? I am not sure how many people watch commercial TV anymore. :) Last time I watched there were ads every 15 seconds, so it is pretty off putting.

    Oakley Sunglasses

    These are my Oakleys. I'm disappointed that the design has the arms scratching the interior of the lenses. :( I like Oakleys, but I need prescription lenses, so they work out to be quite expensive. Looking at Wiley X for my next pair, and probably online.

    When you recovered somone that probably didn't deserve your help.

    Being someone who has had to rely on the kindness of strangers in my earlier years, I definitely think there is benefit in helping out, but some people do ask a lot, especially when there is equipment damage, vehicle damage, or even injuries.
