in a word it was HOT ! which made it a bit difficult to enjoy everything, the ARB tent was quite breezy so that was great, best place was under the gumtrees in the shade..It was fantastic to meet people and to catch up with others...Andrew no more cracks about saggy bits please..lol, it was also great to meet Pauline and Bill who are new members - looking forward to catching up with some of you in a couple of weeks in the LD.

and...

Alex...yes I"ll organise a bbq sometime after in the LD...maybe April before people start heading away on trips...

cheers

Lyn [Mrs. Al]

ps

did I buy anything - NO [well apart from a new hat - no not a straw one, and about 10 litres of water]Life - Live it , Love it !

Very HOT - must have been in the low 30's. Talking of hot - that must have been some girdle coz didn't see any saggy bits today - hot for that sort of support.

It was actually a fantastic time - catching up with everyone and putting faces to names and happy that mine wasn't rearranged by Mr Al. It was fantastic to talk with people who have the same passion - to exploroz.

Look forward to seeing the photos and Maaaaaaa is gunna put everyones name to it so dodos like me can remember everyones name.

Sort of weird meeting people - nice bunch of people actually!! Even Maaaaaaaaa!

You Melbournites need to come up into NSW into the real world.........................Low 30's and you call that hot...............we have had 5 days over 40 so far (dont worry what the weather man says). Yesterday was 44 and Saturday was 45 here. Last night we got down to 34. Its 11.30am here and we are up to 39.4
Geez Andrew...................I wish we only had low 30's. But I tell you what, mowing lawns when it is 40+ degrees gets the weight off.........lol.
We might have to organise a 4wd show up here in Tarcutta in the middle of Feb next year.............
How did all the kids go at the show Andrew???????????

Dunno that you are going to get many coming to Tarcutta for a 4wd show if it is going to be in the 40's. I reckon the food sellers would have taken alot of food home as it was impossible to digest with five litres of water in my intestine. We were smart enough to let the kids go with my sister to Lilydale Lake and when we got there they were all swimming.
Had a good look at campers but jeez - you would have to be rich yuppies to be able to afford a Kanga!! They were there though and they look well made. Didn't like their inside though - was about 65 degrees hahaha. Is that a Kanga on your little picture?? Thought your lawn would be dry and crunchy and not need mowing after a few days like that.

Those Kanga's - we loved them heaps. They looked pretty well built and I liked the hard top. My favourite sort of camper is a borrowed on though. I have already sucked up to my uncle who has an O'briens camper and he said that we could use his and get it ready. I will keep loving those Kanga's if it might get me a lend of one though. Plenty more trips in the pipeline....2001 Landcruiser 100S Turbo Diesel

Sad that you didn't make it Steve. Jen just about collapsed around 2.15pm and we only got to the show around midday. Two hours was enough for us both. We will catch up some other time.
I am feeling pretty washed out. Haven't had much heat this summer to aclimatize.

what a ***** hot ***** of a ***** kin day..

20 acre paddock with 1 tree in it, no breeze and 44 degree heat....

Biggest seller for the day was drinks.. Didnt bother lookin at too much apart from where the next drink stall was.

Caught up with Russell, and lots mates off outerlimits.. that was it.. Sat in the Paj club tent for hour it was coolest of the lot..

Next year I'll wait till someone goes there, and tells me the temp.. otherwise ***** that.. Someone should start planting trees.

Jeffs shed show may have ***** all to see, but at least its comfortable.

Sounds like it was a warm one then Truckster!

In Adelaide, the last time it was less than 30 degrees was 10.30 on Friday morning. It got to 43.2 yesterday and was 35 most of today ranging up to 41.2 at 2.30pm

It is just starting to cool down a bit now.

Our camping and 4WD show is on in 2 weeks and is mostly inside at the showgrounds so we should be OK.

Hope you're feeling cooler after a couple of coldies!

Hi All yeah Lyn Hotter than Hot I think, mind you I dont think it would be to pleasant out there if it was wet either.
Apologies accepted from any body that did not get there.

Was great to catch up in person & put names to faces, ( remembering them is another thing) next time we met conditions may be more pleasant & we can drink something other than water.

Hi Bernie
Very nice to meet you and the others.
Many thanks for your personal hospitality at the TLCV site and the info.

Real kind of you, hopefully I might catch you at the Tuesday meeting, if not, then in the near future.

Also the family was son Andrew, daughter Laurway and my lady Maxine.
Incidently she was the one that stripped off to get in the bog hole some months ago when we got bogged real good. If you check the archives for the heading "Boy did I have fun today" and read the story you can have a good laugh.
She was worried that some of you would remember the story and give her heaps about it. LOL.

The heat was a sore point for all of us and probably spoilt a not to damm bad event. I still enjoyed it, even if Truckster melted in the heat.
I guess we have to remember that he did come from NSW if my memory is correct and you know how those notherners winge. LOL.

All the best to you and all others.

Regards
John

We too grabbed a brochure from the TLCV site as were thinking of joining at some stage. The facilities of the club sound fantastic. Might see you there too but won't be this week! Pity we didn't remember about Maxine at the meeting yesterday John. Would have got her to chat to Jen about recovery in the mud. Not much opportunity for her to mud bathe yesterday though!!

I missed you too Bernie, as well as all of the others. By the time I phoned in you lot had all decamped and were heading for home. But I don't blame you. It was 43 in the shade here in the sticks and I was hiding indoors. Will catch up with some of you at Little Desert.

Cheers,Willem

Sorry about that.

Still dizzy from the heat and hit who knows what combination of keys.

Just saved itself for no apparent reason (mind of its own) other than I was in charge of the keyboard.

Do you ever have moments like that.

Hello Al & Mrs Al

When we left home (Mt Waverley) about 8.30am to head up to Wandin it must have been about 30C along with 95% humidity. My wife made the comment of

"it will be nice to get up in the hills where it is cooler"

Bloody hell mama, Truckster must have been where it was cool, because I am sure it was 44C when we arrived at 9.30am and just got hotter.

Couldn't hack it any longer and left at 12.30pm with a heat exhausted wife and a credit card maxed out on drinks and icypoles.

Other than the heat, it was pretty good. I managed to leave $800 there on a few items I have been eyeing off for awhile and couldn't resist the 'Show deal' price of the day.

Also caught up with a couple of other supplier/installer's of after market items and made further arrangements to lighten my pocket a tad.

AND

I did want to meet you after all the colourful descriptions that have been posted about your good self, however that will have to wait until a cooler moment.

Also thanks very much for your offer to join your Exploreoz soiree.

Regards

Ken Robinson

Sure was hot!!!! - good show though - was that you under the tree Mrs Al with a couple of billy lids (red hair - freckles on the cute little boy?) - had t be - it was the only tree in sight - shame about the post re stealing from vehicles - seems you can't go anywhere these days and be safe can you.
some good bargains to be had - some interesting vehicles in the car park as well - CFA guys did a great job re parking very ordered - hope they got a good boost to their fundraising from it - they deserve it under the circumstances.
Wanted to meet up - but was with some friends and they were feeling the heat a bit too much - maybe next time.

In response to the post re Stealing.

When my wife and I walked through the 'carpark' to the display area, we walked past a 75 series tray top.

Not only were both windows wide open, the keys were in the ignition, a hand held radio and mobile on the dash, etc, etc, etc.

I know 'thou shalt not steal' however this was a prime example of serving it up to the light fingered bastards and some.

Its either a case of too much trust or not enough brains.

Ken,

you should have looked over your shoulder at the guy about 30 m away with a high powered rifle and the open windows in the crosshairs, just like shooting fish in a barrelLife ISN'T like a box of chocolates...it's more like a jar of jalapenos.
