Peter: thereth - I mentioned this a while back, but there were implications as to tax, etc. unless a legal entity was created for the forum on its own. I'll try to remember to speak with someone I know who works in this field...

Chloe: My university is closed tomorrow due to catastrophic fire risks, also exams all canceled for me because of it. Got a catastrophic warning for tomorrow and requiring me to pack a bag and leave the house. Couldn’t imagine the panic on a large scale.

SA Hunter: Yeah, pretty grim where the fires are - our thoughts & prayers are with all involved.

spinifex: We now have a bad fire just west of Lincoln. Have already trucked our horses out 50km to get them well out of the way and our fire preps have been finalised. 60km Wind is expected to push it north towards our area later this evening.

spinifex: The aircraft are doing a tremendous job under very tricky flying conditions.

Chloe: All the burnt leaves and the strong yellow colouring of the outdoors has been strange, a very eerie feeling. Sending my thoughts out to everyone effected. I couldn’t have windows open due to the smoke around today, was bad enough

spinifex: We have another Catastrophic fire day looming on wednesday. 43 degrees and high winds. And it isn't even summer yet.
Nov 18, 2019 17:35:52 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi all - still away, expecting 43c & windy too. Looks ominous!
Nov 18, 2019 19:05:02 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hit 45c at home, 80kph winds. And of course, to keep electricity supplied to the big city Adelaide, our power was turned off till catastrophic conditions ease!!
Nov 20, 2019 15:49:19 GMT 10
spinifex: Interesting that the Adelaide Hills, also with catastrophic conditions, and many more large trees in close proximity to power lines, has had the power ON all day. I think calling our regions power cut a 'safety measure' is BS.
Nov 20, 2019 18:11:32 GMT 10
spinifex: Had the genset running all day keeping power up to computers, phones, fans and fridges. Spent the late afternoon at the beach ... which was very refreshing.
Nov 20, 2019 18:14:13 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Got my genset ready to go - but, can't find the key-turned the house upside down-nothing-grrrr.

blueshoes: G'day everyone, how are we all going? In Gippsland, it's "Summer" - 2nd December, 8 degrees and pouring rain...
Dec 2, 2019 16:19:56 GMT 10
blueshoes: SAH did you find your keys?
Dec 2, 2019 16:20:08 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi blueshoes - no luck!!

Perhaps showing my age here but I've never driven one...
I only buy manuals though and have driven plenty of old cranes/tractors so I guess I could work it out?
Maybe I'm the zombie food on this one lol
My ute was older than me 😉 when I was a teenager (apparently back in the old days 😂😂) very few of us had vehicles that were under 10 years old. And some of us purposely went for a certain vintage of vehicle. B&S utes looked way better in that vintage 😂
Yes.... and I can even pop the bonnet and bash the linkages back into place when they jam 😂😂 pretty embarrassing at a set of traffic lights tho 👌
Not quite as embarrassing when stalling the old galant at the lights with a cactus starter motor and having to jump out with a hammer and give it the old 3 knocks on the solenoid to loosen the bushes up so it'll start again lol

Smart luck is when you work your arse off, so when the opportunity presents itself, you don't have to pray for dumb luck.
I remember learning to drive all those years ago... I'd driven a few floor-shifts so when a guy at work asked if I could drive a manual I asked for the keys. I sat in the driver's seat, looked at the floor to find no type of shifter, and looked over at him. He was p*ssing himself laughing. Smartass.
I did like that ute though... I've always had a soft spot for WB Holdens of all body types.
It really shouldnt matter what the gearing configuration is or even if the gear change is on the floor, column or dashboard (yip driven one! Thats horrible...) 'cause 5 minutes spent checking the wagon out and its 'drive method' would be 5 minutes that might save you and yours later grief and /or lives...car crashes will still kill in the Apoc, lol...
