Haven't seen this in awhile thanks for the laugh  :cup:

I've never seen it before and I woke my wife up laughing at it.

It's something I can't do. I'd rather take a shovel than use one of those things, never mind empty one full of other people's piss and poo.

We have a separating composting loo in our static caravan (oxymoron?) and my wife deals with it. Mind you, it only needs doing once every six months and oddly enough doesn't smell bad, just sort of musty.

We went to Melbourne a couple of weeks before Christmas. Flew in from 40 degree Perth to 16 degrees and pissing rain. The first thing we did was buy waterproofs and fleece jackets. It dropped to 12. Colder than at our home in the UK.

The 1917 Franklin that's running in Drag Week in the USA, is still going.

Day 1:- Ran a 30.7 then drove to the next track (approx. 240 MILES)
Day 2:- Ran 28.7,then shuffled off to the next track, similar distance.
Day 3:- Ran another blistering 30 second pass and then on the road again and another 250 miles.

Still 2 tracks to go, and while it might seem pretty easy.
The Franklin runs a total loss oiling system, so every hundred miles, he has to get out and pump up oil pressure again.

Apparently, the guy is 80 years of age..... whilst doing his runs, he waves to all and sundry on the way down the quarter mile.

What a cool old guy......  :cup:

Oh, and the car has been in his family since new.

And I bet the crowds just love him for still getting out and doing it.

Tom Bailey has run in the low 6 second zone for the most of Drag Week 2019 in the USA.

After traveling over a 1,000 klm, he laid down a 6.07 pass to win the ultimate class.
His engine builder, walks away shaking his head.

They roll around, and line up again, and drop a 5:99 @ 250 mph.

What made me Smile today?
Our 4wd club has been helping to maintain a Homestead(Cunglebung Homestead)that was built in the 1870's.
There has been an out of control fire burning in that area for about 4 days, the country is very remote and we can understand that resources are stretched atm, fearing the worse we expected to see nothing left of this Homestead on our next cleanup day.
This afternoon, we received word that the old girl has survived :)
NPWS have contributed this to the work our club has done over years to keep the grass down and vegetation well away from the building.
This has made alot of our members very relieved.
:) :) :)

Your club would have to be happy to know all the work that has been put in has saved it from both deteriorating and falling down and then from the bushfire.

Cheers mate,
It is a credit to our founding members(who some are still active and are Life Time members) who started the this great relationship with NPWS.
We have access to some wonderful country behind the 'Locked Gate', we help maintain about 6 Huts/areas, one is just a patch of dirty on a ridge with a dozen stumps about 14" high, there is a fresh water well under a piece of tin next to it.

Hi Al,
The country was dirty dry last trip to there earlier in tbe year, creeks that were spring feed were dry.

The Bees Nest Fire is huge now, 80 000ha+,
That is bigger than 2x Sydney Basins.
It's reach the Wild Cattle Creek Area and Clouds Creek.

Yeah been watching the fire, more so the smoke.  I know some areas need protecting but when locked up there is just no chance of accessing the area to even try to do any sort of control burn and less hope of fighting a fire.

Went out a couple of time the last week and there is no undergrowth to what is normally there.  Going to be worse fires before the drought breaks

There is nothing flowing out of the Mann into the Clarence, the Clarence is a trickle at Carnham.
There is nothing in the country behind you guys up to Armidale across to Glen Innes.

At Drag Week in the US, a 1917 Franklin has run a blistering 30 second run at 45 mph.  :cup:
I saw it on a 1320 video this morning. They didn't show the time though.

Ah I think the 64000km/sq of the Sydney basin is just a touch bigger than 84000ha but I appreciate it is a big fire when I flew over it on Wednesday

I heard from a RFS captain the size,
So I can't confirm,

The country it is in, is dry as, it might not be contained for along time.
With no rain predicted soon, most of the country between the ranges and coast are on alert,
One of the biggest problems facing the rfs, it the lack of water to draw from.

What made me smile?.....

One of my boys works hard - permanent afternoon shift, and one day a week off, and when he's off, he likes to go and do things with his family....so it's not often we get to see him  :(

Even though he was working today, we all met up at a local pub and had lunch before he set off for work....sun was shining, food was great, laughter and chat was uplifting.....perfect day   :D
