Bob, I am embarrassed my fellow countrymen have bribed you with such sub-par beverages.

I don't think they are too particular, they were drinking warm Miller out of the back of my truck.  :-D

So that XXXX (that's how they spell beer in Queensland)

No wonder the price of gold is falling....

Bob, I am embarrassed my fellow countrymen have bribed you with such sub-par beverages.

Quiet Tman, if they wanna drink that let'em.......

The amazing thing about XXXX is that they can fit something with corners on it in a cylinder :-D :-D :-D

Tman- I am not religious, but consider I am spiritual and reasonably in tune with nature. As some have said before, to experience Lake Gairdner, particularly at dawn or sunset, is a "spiritual" experience, even without the attraction of Land Racing. For anyone even remotely interested in astronomy, to view the Milky Way with zero light pollution, zero "smog" and zero cloud is mind blowing- and that's with only a couple of Johnny W's on board! If you ever care to travel to Oz., with a common interest in Land Racing and astronomy, I would be happy to accomodate you.

I will get there at some point. Tim was invited to bring the truck down and run it.

Well here we go again.

Again I am unable to make it. Actually I am unable to go anywhere, I am stuck in Barcelona looking after a student who has lost his visa and Health and Safety insist I stay with him as the responsible party!

Sooooo... Sun, beaches, Sangria, a couple of cool museums and galleries for the next week or so until the Embassy can fit him in for an interview. Not a bad stuff up as far as stuff ups go, would prefer to hang out here in 19degrees C than Moscow at 5.

That said, where I really want to be is in Sunshine right now helping prep for the next run. Ahhhh... The hours of driving the dickhead filter to Gairdner letting the business of city life fall away on the roadside. No phones, no Internet, no-one who doesn't understand. In short Heaven. As Talking Heads sang, heaven is a place on earth and I reckon Lake Gairdner must be pretty close to it.

Emus, dragons and red sand, and the odd desert pea. I love her, she is in my blood.

Good luck team SOS as you go to that place, may the Gods of Speed greet you kindly.

Amen

Reverend Hedgash
