Adelaides Mitcham city council has cancelled their Carols by Candlelight this year as its too religious, are they f.....ing kidding, pandering to the politically correct numptys again. I'm not religious, don't give a crap about it but the Carols are a bloody tradition.
wouldn’t surprise me if the real reason wasn’t a cost cutting exercise, but use that as the excuse for doing so.

Hey Pottsy, didn't you get the email????


The worlds gone mad!!!

FFS really? What about the rights of people who enjoy carols? (I'm not one by the way!) but fair go. Why can't everyone just stop trying to find a friggin platform to scream from and just get on with life?
Seriously are people that bored with life they have to find Shit like this to do?
Get some real problems you spanks!

Mate, I can understand your frustration.
I do however have a solution.
Take 2 camping trips a month, with freshly pressed, crushed and fermented grapejuice and or fermented wheat, hops and barley.
This remedy will only work if you combine it with some hardwood combustion and light grilling of fresh meat. Add pepper sauce for flavouring, but this is optional.
Should your symptoms persist, try doubling the dosage.

It really does work.  ;D

Yep I'd have to agree but just to rub a bit more stupidity into the decision the council thinks they might give a grant to a church who may wish to hold their own event.
The council thought their event wasn't inclusive enough, wtf, you either go and enjoy the event or stay home.

Seariously,
This generation tell us we need to look after the planet.
You've seen the protesting school kids, shouting, demanding goverments/councils change their ways.
Yep, I can dig that, I recycle, I don't waste  resources unnecessary. I try to buy goods from producers/manufactures that try to help, not always possible tho.
Yet teenagers will spent 20 bloody minutes in the shower, leave lights on, throw rubbish in the wrong bin and want the lastest Iphone, just because.
For God's sake, don't mention it to them
But hey,
I'm the grumpy generation.
You idoits, you live in the best time of human evolution and yet you have no idea and don't want to know.
You reap what you sow.


Rant over,
I need to camp more.
'Cheers'

My Waeco cfx50 Shit itself just before leaving to go to the big red bash... Plugged it into 240v today, and set it to 4 degrees, and bugger me, it went from 32 to 46 degrees inside after 2 hours, so I guess it's shagged...

What do folks think of the ARB Classic 60L or MyCoolman 60L as a replacement?

Not getting another Waeco, and not a fan of Engels either...

Both have 3 yr warranty, both made in China, both fairly similar to their original donor...Waeco.
If I had deep enough pockets, I would buy a Trailblazer or National Luna.

Jesus,
Life can be a bitch.
Things were looking great, kids doing well, my best mate(Fysh) enjoying life,
Our best mate Toby, has had a few lumps.
Off to the vet, he has lymphoma,
He's got 6 weeks tops.
Fark.

No good Jon, they might be dogs, but they are sometimes better then family. 

Our dog took out the bride last month, feet straight out from under her, tore the AC and looking like more damage in the right shoulder, but you would never be without them.

Hmmm,
We had a pair of Ridgebacks before we had kids. Fysh showed them, they gave us a 11 puppies.
Broke our hearts to sell each one.
Our pets have always been apart of our family.
Toby & Bengi are our 4th & 5th children now.
Swaggers that have camped with us, Will know that these guys are part of us.

We are shattered,
Thank you everyone for the messages, your thoughts are awesome.
Cheers.
