I'm guessing Moorabbin Airport. I'm pretty sure I've posted tags taken at Moorabbin.

It would appear that you do have the tag...

Time to return to normal programming!

I guess we offer it up to the next tagger who can find "Kids (of any age) outdoors with their brand new toy!"

I'm also headed off (down along the coast of course) for a few days, leaving tomorrow, but I will at least have my bike and my internet connection with me.

We really need some more southern hemisphere taggers to help carry us through the northern winter...

So, the tag is still waiting:
Kids (of any age) outdoors with their brand new toy!
(may be family, may be close to home, someone please, wheel your bike out into the driveway next to your kid's new sled!)

Rescue Grab

There are 3 new Christmas toys in this pic and I'm a kid at heart:

1) New gate for a soon to be new fence.
2) New GPS mount for an old but trustworthy GPS.
3) A brand new collapsible contact fire staff from Home of Poi (NZ). Breaks down for transport on the motorcycle

Figure that since we waited this long for a grab you all won't mind if I do something uncharacteristic and post up a new tag tomorrow instead of tonight. I've got a ride planned for the am and will get something good.

I'm not so sure about a gate as a new toy, and the GPS mount is pretty much out of sight...

but that firestick definitely qualifies!

Is your beannie (hat) made from possum fur by any chance?

New Tag

So I couldn't sleep and decided to go riding in the middle of the night...(actually I just spent the last 5 hours riding in freezing temperatures). Brr chilly. Wish I were in the other hemisphere right now.

Stopped here at one point tonight ->



The new tag is something that evokes images of gunslingers battling it out in the streets and cheesy Italian spaghetti westerns. Think Clint Eastwood in a Mexican poncho with a cigar hanging out of his mouth and the biggest six shooters you've ever seen hanging at his sides.

Grab

(tentative) Grab

Close as I could find - or think of as there aren't a lot of saloons within reach. Even thought of looking for something with "Blondie" in the name, but this is what I found. New tag will be posted upon approval.

The link you give talks about a massive storm, but in fact it was about 5 discrete storm cells, the worst of which tracked across the north of Melbourne. We actually had patches of bright sunshine for a minute or two in between, and you've already seen it was sunny at the beach at lunchtime!

Melbourne;
If you don't like the weather, wait half an hour...

Further information has come to hand, we have a casualty...

My friend in Coburg has discovered that a hailstone went through the tail light lens on his $100 CT125 farm bike!
