a few months ago I met a solo male in his white Troopy. LHD with NT rego plates. Met on the Connie Sue Nth of Hanns Tabletop. After some time discussing life etc I gave him my Hanns Track book with my postal address. As I departed he made incredible promises to not forget to mail it and many thanks and other stuff. if you see or know him please get him to send it to me as it contained some other wpts I had put in it. rgds
Slow down and relax......

I never lend (not in any order) My wife, my tools, my money, my vehicles or the books I want to keep.

Promises are like a big pipe, very hollow.

Anyone. Have been let down by workmates and friends so now the answer is always, I will do the job but you cant borrow the gear.
For the rest its no.

I agree completely - and when I borrow stuff I always return it - because if I do, the lender cannot say no when I want to borrow something else. :-)

He never lends tools except to me.

We have completely swapped toolboxes :-)

Incredible promises value = $0

"LHD in NT" most probably with US military they fly in their car and then take it home when they return may not even be in the country now

Shakespeare also wrote "neither a lender nor borrower be".

Good on ya for being so generous Maverick.

We have just returned from an 8 month trip around Australia with my wife and two kids. I was constantly blown away by the generosity of those we met on the road.

Whilst we were free camping at a roadside stop near Augathella QLD, a retired couple lent me their audio copy of Len Beadell's "Blast from the Bush". 5 hrs and 45 mins of good listening - a lifetime memory of two of the nicest people we could ever meet. All after knowing them for less than 1/2 an hour.

They treated my boys like their own grand kids (I think they really missed their own), cooked them pancakes for afternoon tea, bacon and eggs for breakfast and threw stones at a tree for nearly an hour.

So glad and privileged we met them! And yes the CD's are in the mail back to Neville H of Rye VIC.

I really hope you get your book back soon

Cheers

Good onya Maverick. Its people like you that makes the world a better place. We all get burt sometimes by helping others out. Thats man for ya! Plenty of miserable buggers travelling around and staying at home. Glad I,m not one of em. I,ll help whenever I can as well. Its only a short life we have so enjoy. I believe in Karma and so far it has looked after me!!
