    Snow chains?

    The times I have been ski-ing there were chain fitting bays and the blokes who were there let 4WD's through without chains, 2WD's slide around a bit but AWD's stay straight until it gets really thick. On a sealed surface the ride is as rough as buggery and I wouldn't go over 20kph as your...

    Battery inquirey

    The Optima handles the rough better than some others due to the way the plates are seperated, I think it's the blue, 120ah won't run a fridge for a few days unless you are driving or have a solar set up to keep it topped up. Optima are also about the most expensive battery on the market, some...

    Jeep Remote Dealership dibacle

    Country NSW is about as remote as you can get from WA. Saw it advertised, didn't bother. SWMBO said she likes the Jeep, I said I prefer a 4WD. Clever marketing on some of their stuff where 4WD is optional.

    I have a fly fishing vest with a built in buoyancy vest (PFD2or3) that is self inflating, never had to use it but on slippery rocks in fast water I have gone for a swim a few times.

    Vic-W Gippsland Swag

    Done, I didn't put in the bottom hoop as there was no room but it is all intact, there are also two small poles for holding out the front flap at 90° to the end.

    Self inflating PFD1 are not cumbersome and under $100 if you look around, we have 4 on the boat and 4 of the older style foam jackets which are uncomfortable. Look for something with a comfortable yoke otherwise it will drive you mad, you may want to consider a crotch strap as well if you think...

    the otooles drop bears..... AND THERE EXISTENCE.

    Took a distant relative who was backpacking from the UK camping, told him to watch out for Yowies and we knew they were around because you could hear them growling (Bull Koala's). We saw a black snake cruising through and he shit himself because he was afraid it would get into his tent, we said...

    Back in the bad old days before we had a fridge we had cans of sanitarium nutmeat which we sliced off like a hamburger, pan fried and served on toast with fried onions and tomato sauce with tabasco added.

    Woman goes to the fishmonger and asks for some cod, sorry madam we don't have any cod what else would you like, she says I would like some cod. A bit exasperated the fishmonger says to the woman 'how many S's in snapper' one she replies, 'how many how many G's in garfish' one she replies, 'how...
