    I will use the one thread for all pics this year if that is OK
    At Wycheproof on the Calder H/way Vic. Looks like they didn't return to open one day as there is still stock in the store. Someone may be able to work out when by the diesel fuel price.

    Great pic Ian.
    Owner may have passed away suddenly ?

    Tried to find some historical diesel prices for Australia, but very hard to get info past a few years ago.
    I'm guessing that would have been early 90's ?

    it's amazing what the old retired steel metal trader can do with scrap metal. Well worth a stop when traveling the Calder H/way between Melbourne and Mildura
    Yep; that ball is make by welding railway spikes together.

    More arty photos of his work to follow when I get the motivation to edit them. These are a bit rough imo. ​

    The model I so very nearly bought all those years ago but I didn't like auto. Still has to be the better looking vehicle IMO; bit like the landies that really have that "take me bush" look if nothing else. Hope you appreciate the Opp shop part ;)

    Old and new. I only noticed the ground clearance difference when I saw the pics on the computer. Seems to be way these days when in fact ground/diff clearance is one of the more important things with going bush. Amazing where a 2 wheel drive will go if it has enough clearence. Doesn't look like the old one has be driven for awhile. Spotted in Wycheproof on the Calder H/way. An interesting town to pull up for look and I believe is one of the last towns in (??) that still has the railway going through the centre of town. Too often we rush through such towns complaining about having to slow down. I was in an old 1988 truck :( but the walk was good; just wish I stayed longer as I was in no hurry to be anywhere.

    So tell me; what do you prefer?
    The full size pics or just the thumbnails?
    Flickr linked or added from my computer?
    Does it make any difference with the mod/admin/forum costs?

    On my mobile, I prefer the full size. Not a fan of thumbnails.

    ..
    If there're numerous pics, thumbnails are better to scroll through, takes a lot less space when they open, not sure if scrolling thumbs works on all mobile devices ??
    If so, then they might be better for pic heavy posts / trip reports.

    D@mn, no they open in a new window each thumb, pity . . . maybe this can be changed so they open in a scrolling window ??
    That would be great.

    That's on my iphone 6 using chrome.

    I know, freaking thing really wants to control that.
    Might try safari later and see if that has the scroll view of thumbs, you never know.

    By 6.30 the sky was all clear again. People are still trying to stuff like a couple trampolines

    I expected a good sunset but couldn't be bothered chasing it so I did this instead in the backyard

    I think the salt formed like this because the water evaperated so quickly during the very hot days last year. And yes; it's not white

    Do have more salt close ups if I can get the motivation to sort and edit
    Thanks for looking
