good god man we're in the middle of a pandemic and the USA has 27 million cases and almost 500,000 deaths be thankful they still have DHL/UPS pilots alive to fly the MD11's

don't you ever just sit back and think how great this technology is that you can order something on your telephone and it just appears a few days later, you need to chill and drink some Ouzo on ice its working really well for me lol

Hey @AussieNick is Stellas still there, from memory it was at the bottom of the hill near the old power station near the duck pond on the way to stokes hill wharf. I have yet to find a seedier place, red or green cans only plastic cups of Bundy and Orchy with 44 gallon drums around the place for patrons to throw their empties at. One of the fishermen with us one night lit a joint (nothing unusual there) and called the "young lady" serving to come and clean up the table, she told him to get f^&**^ed and then he showed her the joint, over she came to share it and clean away the empties. On the walls were pictures of the old dinosaurs with the scuppers blocked off and tons of prawn flowing up to the bulwarks. there were pictures all over the walls some of paper from sounders showing the huge tracks through the prawns it was amazing. Up stairs was a restaurant run by some aboriginal women, their steaks were amazing also, I would love to visit again.

i usually buy Jeep parts from Jeep London they have been getting here in 5 days same as BMW bike parts, just a thought

I found the freight was the killer from over there, Rockauto is good on price and supply usually quicker but I was surprised Sat arvo in Sydney on my doorstep this arvo........... Jeep is now at 110%, all systems are GO........

What do you do for work mate?
Bluey is like a dog, always digging holes around the place, been trying to sink or bury Melbourne but they keep filling his holes in with concrete.......... :becky: :becky: :becky:

@1DayIll howed the weekend go size of sites the park its self
Sorry,
Just saw this.
Good weekend but the sites do vary a bit. there is some right on what they call the creek but it is fairly wide and a bit of water last weekend, Was only about 45cm deep though in some places.

Sites were all good size and it is a nice little town and a nice park and worth a visit. we went for a drive and found the weir and some rock pools to swim in close by and they were great.

Wil go back there again sometime, but I must admit, happy to go to other places first.weir
