I had hope to stir the pot a bit longer but looks like Lone Wolf saw straight through me.

Hi All I am back, Not as a visitor but finally a member.

Still the same bloke on the key board you have all come to know and love (sic) but now I get to look at a red banner at the top of my page and you can all Member Message me to have a go in private.

I will stick a photo of the mighty Troopy at the bottom when I can get one on the system.
And yes Willem I will even list my electric toothbrush as equipment.

How about 'Fussy fella'. Maybe I will talk to Hat Snatcher and Big Foot and get them to come up with something.....or even Muddy (now she's been quiet!) might think of something.

Fussy Bugger that has a bit of a ring to it, I will consider that one.

By the way have you looked at my equipment list under rig details.

Listed one very important item of equipment.
And it's not the electric toothbrush.

Is that the Muddy Girl/ Bog Hole recovery unit. I was thinking that this was a combo effort this recovery and that your nickname was 'Bog Hole'

By the way, the toothbrush was why I thought you might become known as Colgate Kid. Fussy Bugger might stick though. Better than Fat Fingers

The Toothbrush is a left over from Willem as he said he was going to add his electric toothbrush to his equipment list with eveything else in his G60..

He has now advised that he has changed his mind due to a distinct lack of items to use the brush on. (His Words to effect)

As for the digi cam Muddy I was going to use the photo that Nitro Eric shot of us in Toolangi, you know the one with you eating a bread roll.
It's OK you still had your pants on.
You are also correct Nitro/Mr Gadget does not have a MG Bog Hole recvovery unit YET!, But I am sure he is trying to talk to the Missus.

Hiya Des
I have been to a EO get together. LD remember the shredded tyre on the Troopy that was me, I met you personally and was obviously so inspiring that you have forgotten me already. I'm bleep tered. LOL.

I was at Wombat the other week and at the 4wd show at Wandin earlier this year.

As I said I have been a visitor for more than a year now and finally became a member.

G'day John and welcome aboard. Having been away in the smoke for two days I had not see your advance. You need those wheels covered now with the right wheel covers too.

I see in the other posts you say about the "tall and hansome guy we remember". I better change my rig pic again before all people think you are referring to me.

Looking forward to seeing the troopy or a representative pic there that would make your posts look better mate. Perhaps a pic of Muddy Girl ready for recoveries ;-)

When you coming to this end of the GOR?
Cheers,
Who?

Nice to hear from you and thanks for the kind words.

I some how did not quite remember you as "Tall and Handsome" but I will take your word for it. LOL.

I will get down the Great Ocean Rd / Otways one day soon.
Will be sure to contact you for a cuppa.

I will try to up load the rig pics tonight, fingers crossed it all works OK.
