  1. Same as the tracks I ride. I look at some of the nasty pointy rocks as I ride by and think WTF am I doing? Still, after a while you learn you can point an MTB at some pretty crazy stuff & mostly stay upright, esp. a dually.
  2. Fact for the day. MTBing = crashing (else you ain't having a red hot go ๐Ÿ˜‰)
  3. These days, I spend a fair bit of time collecting grey water & distributing it to try to keep at least some of the garden alive. This drought is unbelievable, just clear blue skies every day. The rain just does not seem to make is over the range. Also spent 6hrs cutting out and rebuilding the window in a 1/72 scale Royal Australian Navy Wessex I'm building ๐Ÿ™„. Got a 1500m swim in, though probably not so smart as I have a bit of a chest infection.
  4. Nope. I can't remember who is was now, some bloke in his 20's.
  5. I quite liked our few days in Nice back in 2013. Highlights were watching the Team TT of the Tdf and wandering around the Esplanade/beach. Lowlight was spotting some unknown (at the time) Trannie (via his Trannie cap) and saying g'day then having our teenage girls say "hey, we thought Trannies were all old ugly middle-aged blokes, that guy was actually damn cute" ๐Ÿคจ.

  7. Lot's of countries, but these days don't bother going further than NZ......though bonefish on fly on Kiribati might be worth a look. My wife is keen for Canada though (have not been there yet) .
  8. Cockwomble ๐Ÿคฃ, now that's one I can use in work meetings too Ian. Almost as good as YoYos 'batsmoker' ๐Ÿ˜.
  9. Absolutely. Have a little bit of pizza sticking out of his pack, and then walk by that castle on the waterfront where the cafes are. Make sure you film it ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Saw this girl walking along talking on her mobile which was wedged between ear & shoulder, carrying food in two hands. Big Angel of Death swooped down, boofed her & she dropped the lot. Before she could say "you feathered fcuk", it was off with half a pizza.
  10. If you are walking outside carrying food in Monaco, be very careful. There are these big-arse gulls, almost as big as a wedgie, that will fly down, smack the side of your head so you drop the food, then pounce on it.
  11. Beats me but I agree. They run so hot & cold this year.
  12. This makes it clear. Even though Graham touched it, it went backwards off his hand to Xerri = fair try. So fcuk off Shark haters ๐Ÿ˜
  13. And make sure you hang onto the investment property for at least 12mths before selling, that way you qualify for a 50% reduction in the capital gains tax owed when you sell. We had an investment property at the coast. For the first 5-6yrs we had it rented out for holiday lets. Bloody nightmare, you won't believe the shit holiday renters do to the place. Then we changed to a permanent rental for the next 6-7yrs, an old single bloke, best tenant ever, looked after it like his own. Felt bad when we sold it and he had to move out. We paid about $10K in capital gains tax between me and my wife. We were also caught out by the amount of maintenance needed at the coast (e.g. rot in wooden decks, termites) compared to up here on the Tablelands. The coast is a relatively harsh environment for properties. And have a good look at what might happen on neighbouring properties on your boundaries. We had a nice view of an open back yard off our deck, but then a property developer bought it and was going to put up double-story units. Luckily for us he went broke & it never happened. BTW we are pondering doing similar, though in our experience investment properties are a pretty crap return compared to shares & super unless you can be guaranteed of good capital gain (which we did not get). Would have been miles ahead if we'd put all the money we paid into shares/super.
  14. Damn, that's a F1 track compared to the gnarly shit they've 'built' up here. I'd love to ride on that one ๐Ÿ‘
