That makes sense. A Willy's Jeep in WWII was made to fit a railroadtrack without tires.

Where do I get this Sticker

Keep posting those pics Chris. They're great..... I know this wide country only from "Crocodile Dundee", "Flipper" and "Skippy", the Bushkangaroooooo....

Edit: How could I forget Mad Max, the "Road Warrior".................

I hope to ride in your country once. And have a beer or two. You drink your beer cold, don't you

OK, I'll bite: what are 'Emmas'?

Have been to Oz a few times, loved it, hope to go again some day.
Sorry: back to the hacks now...

Can't help you with the sticker, and yes Real men drink cold beer

Certainly have to on your toes here in Oz.
This King Brown made the mistake of slithering past the Family pub at Tiboorburra while we were having a beer or 3 at an OAR meeting a few years back.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudechis_australis

BTW it's missing about a foot of head and neck, tends to happen when hit with the edge of a shovel




Perhaps Dr Jim meant enema's.
That snake would certainly have given you a dose of clickily clicks

GAD! Snakes AND Beer - Oh My!

'Emmas' may have been a bit too obscure - was in Darwin before it got smashed flat, and that was the slang for the excessively predatory ladies of 'questionable virtue' who frequented the Beaufort Hotel and other dens of iniquity...

All things considered, I think I preferred the 'Crocs ...

Cheers

I don't mind one bit. And it's not mine anymore. T'was certainly a good outfit. Hopefully the new owner will surface in the not too distant future. I have no idea what it is going on.

I was just on the 'phone discussing the next one. It is in planning, the building starts over Anzac weekend.
