Which direction are you coming from? I can provide you a lift from the Bunbury area Friday arvo, I'm working but will drop to 8hrs so can be ready by 3.30 onwards.
cheers,
Bodge.
Thanks heaps for the offer Bodge. At this stage I won't be able to get down on Friday as planned but if all goes well I am hoping to be driving a new(er) set of wheels down early on the Saturday.

Determined to make it!

Browny, assuming that you don't have a backpack waying more than 200kilos... I am heading down early on Sat and if your plans fall through, let me know and I'll give you a lift.

Gentlemen, I'm having to withdraw. :piange:

I was looking forward to it, but events of recent weeks are overtaking me. Nothing to worry about. Just time and energy needed elsewhere.

Enjoy yourselves! I look forward to the trip report.

Thrud, you know my pack is lightweight, only abot 65 kilos, plus water. :_risata:

Hoping to know no later than Wednesday night. Nothing like cutting it fine eh!

If it's alright I'll get you to PM me your ph number just in case......

Don't let him off so easy, Thrud! Using your strong, manly physique, manhandle him into the car and drag his pack if you must....
Okay. ROLL CALL.
I'm in still. EKO and coming in Friday. Bodge and MJC88 too.
Thrud, Decco, MDU and maybe the elusive Browny (if we can cut off any other excuses.lol) are Saturday. Maybe Sami as well. Might have to leave the purchase of Kirup Syrup to you Bodge as the nearly local. (Hic)
Decco, are you coming Friday or Saturday?
Gohard, have you got a leave pass yet?
Anyone else is still in? Not too late to chime in.
Artificial-interior-plastic-log-campfire-with-red-cellophane-flames stay-at-homers are Uneekwan (am I an uncle yet?), Redtail (too busy packing his 4WD for the Canning), Oncedisturbed (going under the knife - we could have let Thrud at you) and Doc (hmmm Grimwade v Saudi Arabia. Seriously?)
Cheers

It's in on my calendar Bloffy, hopefully the Friday too if I can get the day off (quietly confident).
Looking forward to putting some faces to names, a bit of show n tell and a few beers. What time you planning on arriving Bloffy?
I'll try and remember to throw in a few dry logs for firewood too, just in case.

With the fear of being ostracized I must mention hear now, that I am a non drinker (seriously) and that any responsibility given to me in the purchase of said Kirrup Syrup may just end up with you receiving a jar or two of Mrs Offers famous tomato relish and cauliflower pickles. :emozionato:

Can you ferment that?:_risata:
Don't apologise for not imbibing, shows you have more sense than the rest of us!
I'm not a big drinker, one Tia Maria and Lucozade and I'm out for the count...

Good to see there will be a few folks attending. The more witnesses to my existence the better the chance Bloff will believe! ( I'm starting to wonder if I'm not just someones imaginary if somewhat rotund friend myself...)

Looking like Thrud will be my chauffeur for the weekend. ( He offered a lift down, I should probably confirm the ride home too!? )

Do we have a list of toys folks are bringing for the show n tell? I have been told I need to leave most of the shed at home so I have to pack light. ish. For me.

Axe, knives, stoves, chair, hammock and acutrement, fire lighting, umm what did I miss? Do I need the spoon knife even if Doc's not attending?

You don't have to pack light! I've persuaded the commander to let me borrow the Territory as long as I don't trash it.
Lift home is one million dollars...

Actually, the Canning SR trip has been postponed to next year. (Insert long story about work projects, other blokes not being organised, one went and bought a house ...)
Saturday night, Ms Redtail flies in from Europe after three weeks stomping along the borders of Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia and Italy. A little quality together time is in order.

However, I'm still envious of missing out. Looks like you've got a decent crew turning up.

Okay. That was a neat out. You're off Syrup duties. You're passenger(s), however....lol.
That said, the famous tomato relish and cauliflower pickles on freshly baked damper would be AWESOME. Just saying... hehe.
Hope you don't mind sitting around with those of us that do like to partake of the evil spirits.
Cheers

Three days old and he's already got 2 hats! I sense another gear freak.

Speak to Simon at Tier Gear, see if he can make baby hammocks, he could come along to Grimwade.
