All along the South Eastern Arterial, Monash, they live in the pipes underneath.
You can spot Foxes all the way along right into the Gardens at Government House.
They're resourceful critters, and will eat all sorts of stuff. 
Especially Food scraps unsuitable for human consumption.

And from that, the only remorse he seems to show, is that he got caught. He says - it was only meant to be shown to my mates, but obviously one of them wasn't a good a mate as I thought.

Maybe one of them was a batter mate then he thought

Yeah I know it's not pretty, or practical, but people would get out of the way......
A better plane to use would have been a Lancaster bomber with a working machine gun in the nose turret.

Anyone taking bets on the result?

Melbourne Storm confirms it will contest Billy Slater's charge at the NRL Judiciary.

The NRL Match Review Committee, on Saturday morning, charged Billy Slater with a grade one shoulder charge meaning even with an early guilty plea, Slater will miss one match.

The Match Review Committee charged Slater for a tackle on Cronulla's Sosaia Feki in the first half of Friday night's Preliminary Final at AAMI Park. Slater was penalised at the time, but not placed on report

Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi said," We are disappointed for Billy that he has been charged by the Match Review Committee. We must now focus on giving Billy the best chance of playing in Sunday's Grand Final, we have spoken with our defence team and feel we have a very strong case."

The Club will now await confirmation from the NRL on the day of the judiciary hearing.

General Discussion / Re: Front fold vs rear fold
« Last post by GBC on Yesterday at 01:54:01 PM »
I really wanted to like a forward fold but ended up with a rear fold again for a number of reasons.

Inside storage - under the bed for clothes etc, in drawers, no bags - happy wife. On bed - solar panels, tables etc.
Inside mattress - proper one, with a topper - bed stays made, pillows stay too
Outside annexe - rear fold is bigger and that is where we live - no staircase right in the middle where everyone sits
Outside kitchen - much better laid out, at one end, again with nobody walking through it
Outside storage - one big gullwing box with space to fit what I want rather than numerous drawers
Outside storage - rear folds can have a large bag/box over the kitchen permanently for all the chairs, annexe, walls, pegs etc etc and don't need to be removed to unpack every time
Fridges - mine has swallowed a 110 evakool and could go bigger - FF's are very particular about fridge height
BBQ - in the kitchen and ready to go where you want it.
Annexe poles/canvas - forward folds pitch higher off the ground and need ladders. I do my rear fold off the ground - shorter people would need a ladder with a rear fold also
Drunk test - there is a flight of stairs to be negotiated in a FF...........

Rear fold bad points

Floor must be very clean before folding over your bed - I sweep and use a small tarp over the bed

Yes, a rear fold is longer on the ground when set up - forward folds would be better for overnighters in truck stops if that is your thing - we do plenty of overnighters touring, never had an issue, never stayed at a free truck stop either.

Kids beds - rear fold needs bunks or mats to be set up.


Invalid points

Only a forward fold can be set up on rough ground - not true. Rear fold have adjustable legs on the floor section. Any rougher than that and you won't be camping there anyway

Forward folds faster to set up - I don't think so

Forward folds are heavy on the ball - rear folds can be just as heavy.

This is just my perspective. Everybody is different and there is a reason why there are plenty of both in the market.
