A good mate and fellow 4wder who was a regular on another 4wding forum Overlander (based on the magazine) had passed away from cancer a few years ago. His name on the forum was Oneputt and he drove a blue 80 series. After his passing we put a sign up at one of our regular camping spots near a creek, we called it Oneputt Waterhole. It was at the time remote and nobody knew about it. I go out there every so often to check in with Oneputt and have a chat and make sure its tidy. Well. Some grubs have burnt his sign and left there rubbish all over the place. Just can't believe it. The sign has survived 3 major floods. Last time I found it 40 meters away and buried under logs n trees and rocks. I was hoping it'd be the same thing this time. Unfortunately not. So now I'm trying to think of what I can do to leave something else there in his memory. Looking for suggestions.

Heres a few shots of the leftovers and the view from the bank

Oneputt was a top bloke. We used to frequent the same forums back in the day.
The guys that got rid of the sign need to be strung up.

Cheers.....Lionel.
