    Cheers!

    Yeah, the music side of things is a hard call. Some like it, others do not. But I take a lot of time lapse - no audio with that - and I feel it needs something. a 30 second lapse with no audio seems a bit funny to me. I need to get some good instrumental riffs in my collection I reckon.

    I put a comment on youtube about this. Some people think the arid parts of WA are the arsehole of the earth. I see a beauty in it others can not. If you ever get the chance, come over and experience it. I originally come from the East Coast, and the arid terrain over here is so totally different to the East.

    @sharkcaver , I enjoyed your video but I have a bone to pick with you - you cost me money! I got strait on the net & bought a Nanopresso after watching YouTube & I am now after the Barista Kit!:cool:

    Thanks mate - Welcome to my world.... having used the nano for about 12 months now, and having proven it's worth, I just purchased a nano with barista kit and NS Espresso adaptor for my work bag! $138 from forever coffee on ebay (he had to list the combined kit for me as it isn't a kit option anywhere). Trust me, the nano with barista and ground coffee makes an awesome milk based brew - and no doubt a double espresso if that's your thing. My travelling compadre loves his aero press. The nano, with its high pressure extraction craps all over any french type press - try getting any crema from that!. You will be a happy man, I'm sure! if not, I'll buy your nano from you. I look forward to your appraisal.

    Well, I've discovered the barista kit isn't needed for pod coffee's. Whilst it works well with the 16 gram ground basket, it waters the pod down too much. I have left the barista kit off my work nano with ns adaptor. So how are you finding the nano @billolga ?

    Anyway, the main reason for my post:

    I have finally got around to getting this trip report sorted. I am now up to date, just in time for another road trip ;) At the end of the week.

    Love the Nano @sharkcaver , particularly now with the Barista kit.
    The NS is only a one shot thing _ it's a pity it won't take the Aldi pods that are larger as I found out when I bought some 12's.
    I opened the capsules & used the coffee & loved it.

    Loved the video. Thanks for sharing.
    As I learn about new places to visit, my list keeps growing. I am looking at early (wishful thinking) retirement to get this list done :D

    Thanks, I love yours too. It never ends mate - You will never see this county in a lifetime, early retirement or not.

    I blame it on my parents. Why the hell did they not leave me a trust fund!? :D
    By the way, that goes for my in-laws too :D :D
