Don't forget the camera for the photo's you need to take for us
Will do better than that. We are taking the Dji Mavic Pro 2 with us. So we can drone fish as well as take a bucket load of pics and vid to complement the ground shots.
Hopefully we will get some good pics from above the boat whilst in motion with the drone in follow me mode. Will make navigating sand and rock bars a lot easier too.

Yeah mate. Saves me having to bring the shower, portaloo and shower tent. No power to site so not quite to Troy's standard.

Surely a Thai Massage with a happy ending would be more fun.

I credit a chiro with fixing my back issues some years ago.

My back improved a I great deal... When I lost patience and stopped going to see him 👍

Certainly no improvement when I was going.

I was also told that if I didn't get my back sorted (at great profit to the chiro, $75 odd, three times a week for foreseeable future), I'd be in a wheel chair within two years. Years later, I now ride a mountain bike and work in a mine, among a great many other activities not requiring wheel chairs. Oddly, my missus and several mates have been told basically the same thing by chiros.

See a Physio as Skeg said, or better still a really good Osteopath... But it's hard to find a good one. My mate sent me to his osteo once, just went once after a week of back agony and the guy was fair dinkum a miracle worker, a rare breed.

Good luck! Moral of the story - noisey cracking sounds are not a cure 😎

I don’t have anything wrong, I go once a year for an adjustment. It only costs me $20 per visit with my private health insurance and when I do have other issues I also see the physio.
We also have a friend that is a Physio and occupational therapist who generally guides us in the right direction.
Shame she moved to Denmark but now we have a place to stay if we ever go over there

Just been trying to chase down little things that annoy me with the trol. Have pulled both spotlights as one stopped working / only working intermittently.

They are HID converted IPF Xtreme sports. They were done with Ntech 70w Ballasts as guts.

I was thinking of checking out Jaycar for replacements. Anybody got feedback on what to get?

I am quite happy with the 70W HID light output.
I'm 90% sure I have a couple of ballasts lying around you can have, no requirement for me, but I think 50w though. If you want them PM me a postal address and I'll send them on the weekend 👍

So... For the first time in at least a couple of years I've seen an episode of Pat Callinan's rubbish.

He explained that he'd once had his patrol slide down a hill and hit a tree, because he got out to hook up the winch due to lack of traction, and the handbrake only locks the rear wheels.

Ok please show me who is that fkn stupid to buy that shlt.

If you have so little traction that you need to winch, you'd be in 4wd.

If you're in 4wd in a patrol, then locking the rear tailshaft (or even both rear wheels in some models) will lock the driveline, including the front wheels, or at least one of them if you didn't have a front diff lock (which he says he did).

These stupid shows prey on the uninformed masses who don't actually go 4wding, which is ironic because they are aimed at 4wders. Wtf????

No wonder I get annoyed at the so called experts on 4wd shows...among other media lol

Still, if you're paid to tell us that a pretty much stock dual cab is a hardcore 4wd (and a BFG is a half decent tyre lol) then good on ya I guess... If it pays the bills so be it!
