Yes,
R.I.P Lindsay.
He used to work on a Station in the N.T. where we used to work back in the 70's. Ma.

Is this legit or just word of mouth?
How did it happen?
I saw him a month ago and he seemed healthy to me.
a quick google search comes up with nothing.

More research shows its true.
He passed away from a heart attack on Saturday the second of August.
There is a post on Direct 4wd with some funeral details etc. Pretty gutted right now but makes me glad we got to meet him before he passed on.
He was a top bloke.

I am so sad. Lindsay provided one of our best outback experiences in 2005 - he bluffed our group of 8 vehicles - told us he had to go to "town" and wouldn't be around for our bush tucker tour. Colin took is around and at the end, led us into a nice patch of gidgee - there was Lindsay and his amazing mum - had cooked us lunch - kangaroo tail, soup, damper, roast in a bunch of camp ovens. Fed a bunch of 16 strangers from a few gidgee coals and a freshly shot roo. What a day!
