Except all the stuff I was looking at was marked “out of stock”

Was in the BGS yesterday & spotted these: https://www.bunnings.com.au/gasfoot-gas-bottle-holder_p0111139, which look like they could be handy :D

I should say I spotted the empty box of them on display as showing as not in stock :'(

I agree, it's depressing as I was winding up for a trip.

Heres a bargain if you have nothing on one arvo ;)

From ozbargains

Free $100 Reward Card after a Nissan Navara Test Drive

All you have to do is to visit a specific Nissan dealership's website and wait for the popup (wait 2 -3 seconds) as per the screenshot.
Steps:
1. Register your details, you should obtain a unique code after you've completed the registration process.
2. A salesman will get in touch from your elected dealership to organise a test drive of the Navara (Make sure it is for a Navara only).
3. Go for the Test drive and complete it and obviously don't forget to provide your unique code.
4. Dealer should allocate your $100 voucher for free within 1 - 2 days.
So far i've noticed that these dealerships are offering this:
- Ferntree Gully - https://www.ftgnissan.com.au/
- Ringwood Nissan - https://www.ringwoodnissan.com.au/
- Blackburn Nissan - https://www.blackburnnissan.com.au/
- Werribee Nissan - https://www.werribeenissan.com.au/

Thats a crazy list..
Would have been easier to say which ones were open :( Then again, "All  Closed until further notice" would have worked.

Just had this come through the e-mail

https://www.outbackequipment.com.au/mean-mother-portable-12v-battery-box-bluetooth-bat

Know absolutely nothing about it other than the ad ;D, but sounds OK if you're after a battery box.

I don't know if there is much difference to this one https://www.bcf.com.au/p/xtm-battery-power-box-with-usb-and-cig-socket/575922.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8M_41cuO5wIVQQwrCh3fDgiHEAQYASABEgJOJ_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds, which is a bit cheaper, could well be though.

EBay has 10% off at the moment so I used it and bought a Victron smartsolar 100/20 controler. Brought it down to $166. Use it with the panels I got last year.

Looks like there are also parts for the C-130 and the C-17A, if you could get a fuselage, you could probably fit the shed in them!
