frostbite: Forums are about learning, sharing and networking. Not participating means you miss out on at least 2 of those 3. Oct 9, 2017 13:34:28 GMT 10
SA Hunter: evening all - yes, I've been away again, and missed out on a lot. Hope you are all well & safe. Oct 9, 2017 19:04:53 GMT 10
paranoia: You were gone? ;) Welcome back mate, for now at least... I hope everything went well in the big smoke. Oct 9, 2017 19:16:20 GMT 10
SA Hunter: HaHa - not much smoke out West, but, yeah, had a good time. If anyone is on the SA West Coast Oct next year, gotta go to the Oysterfest in Ceduna!! First time there, and loved it. Very family friendly...... Oct 9, 2017 20:31:45 GMT 10
paranoia: Oysterfest? One mans trash I guess... Last trip across the Nullarbor I stopped in Ceduna for lunch... plenty of people without shoes yelling on the main street, not much smoke ;) Oct 9, 2017 20:57:47 GMT 10
SA Hunter: haha - funny thing is, that's normal communication for them - people get worries with all the yelling, but calm down when explained it's just how they talk/yell. Oct 9, 2017 22:02:19 GMT 10
Peter: Hey all. SA Hunter - the Oysterfest sounds good. One of my favourite foods ever. Oct 10, 2017 11:18:57 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi all - phone call the other day - out West you go. Finally home for at least 2 days - even more I hope. Oct 14, 2017 21:40:33 GMT 10
paranoia: Never a dull moment hey? at least you've got a couple days I guess... Oct 14, 2017 21:42:44 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Evening everyone - warm here in SA. Oct 17, 2017 21:46:23 GMT 10
paranoia: Wonderful to have warm evenings again... I look forward to a few more camp outs in the front yard with the kids :) Oct 17, 2017 21:59:11 GMT 10
SA Hunter: yeah, spent last night on a mate's "small" boat - 58ft, sleeps 11. Got a good feed of squid, whiting & flathead!! Oct 17, 2017 22:12:50 GMT 10
paranoia: Wow... Sounds fantastic! Yeah I don't think I'll ever own something like that given the missus' stance on boats. I'll be happy enough when I finish building my 7 footer ;) Oct 17, 2017 23:15:07 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Well, we are always looking for people to bait our hooks!!! Oct 17, 2017 23:27:00 GMT 10
paranoia: Tempting mate... If I could only find the time! Oct 17, 2017 23:44:29 GMT 10
twooldblueshoes: I'm not sure wants to be bait ;) Oct 19, 2017 20:40:45 GMT 10
paranoia: Haha, twisted mind there blue ;) Oct 19, 2017 20:47:17 GMT 10
fei: Oh man, I'm in the last hour of a 24 hour shift at work. Really looking forward to some sleep and a slow weekend; but then back to two more 24-hour shifts next week. :P Oct 20, 2017 10:16:21 GMT 10
