It's no coincidence the media and TV whores like Oprah Winfrey, Dr Phil etc have so openly promoted the use of the phrase "You are a Racist" to describe often what is nothing more than a hatred of another because they happen to think differently or look different. Actual Race rarely has anything to do with the issue, its designed to keep people hating each other and divided.

We spent New Year over there (Brisbane and Noosa) and the weather was perfect. Glad i'm not there now though.

And yes, the shed will be off limits this weekend.

Um... Dr Phil's is actually more along the lines of; "I thank god every day, for giving me the strength and clarity of mind, to TELL you what you were thinking..."

yep tick that box

I don't know what rally computer you have but carry a spare sensor, we broke ours half way and didn't have a spare so had to finish the rallly following the cruise competitors. We used a Philtronics Rally trip pro, very good but needed a spare sensor. Most use Terra Trip so no one had a spare sensor to give us, lots offered the terra trip sensor but it didn't match.

na can't tick that box......I was just gunna use my CX60 to read the mileage


Beer, everyone drinks lots of beer but be careful of the local constabulary doing an RBT coming into an overnight stop, a few got caught on our rally. Pack light, we carried way to much stuff, were far to heavy and got stuck too many times.
I don't know if they still do it but on our rally, for a small fee you can have your swags and heavy items (some took spare gearboxes on our rally) carried on their truck and they are there on the ground when you arrive ( I will do that the next time i go ).

Tick that box their truck will take stuff and meet at the overnight camps.

Nightly auctions, don't get caught out at these, stay focused and don't be to drunk, I saw blokes pay $200 -$300 for some blokes old hat that I would have thrown in the bin. Good fun watching though. If you can try and get some stuff to auction off, as you know it's all for a good cause.

I don't have the $ to throw around so no problem there.....but unsure of the ability to stay sober. Taking stuff to auction off is a good idea

Best of all you will have a great time and meet some very nice and interesting people. As said above some go and try and win it, first attempt just enjoy it

Good advice there Rob. We're just trying to get to the start line at this stage


Cheers
