They just sneak up on you

We were up at Gembrook on the weekend and I noticed another small patch of the campground had been fenced off and had trees planted. It was a beautiful spot, right by a creek.

Slowly they chip away ay us. Fence off a little bit of a campground here, close another track there until hey presto, it's all gone.

What good is the bush if we can't enjoy just a little bit of it?

Cheers,

Jim.

So you're saying you were not aware that treated pine, concrete and wire rope occur naturally in the bush... It's the only way a tree can tell you it needs a break from human contact. Please don't attempt to blame the DSE or members of local lobby groups for they are but innocent(albeit happy) bystanders. We actually brought this upon ourselves by having a yearning to get out into nature and enjoy this beautiful country with family and friends... Had we not been so selfish as to want to enjoy it, none of these areas and tracks would have be fenced off. Now what you need to do is get up on the roof of your house and shout at the top of your voice: I am totally ashamed of my inconsiderate and selfish desires. I promise I will never take onother step outside of my back yard in the name of fun or adventure. I promise that I will go directly to and from work or the shops without deviating from my predetermined course, not even to pick a flower for my wife. I will die lonely and unhappy knowing that the choices I have made(from this point forward) have assisted the minority to triumph over evil track wrecking, smog spewing, unjustifiable juggernauts of destruction.

When you have finished yelling, do it again another two times to make sure Harold Scruby and all the yuppies out past Yarra Glen have heard you. Pat yourself on the back and go inside for dinner and a beer.

Sorry for the rant, just my way of unloading from being verbally abused this morning by an anti 4x4 goose at the intersection of Stud Rd and Burwood Hwy. He took off like a greyhound when I climbed out of the Triton and started walking toward him.

Mate, can you keep a couple of tracks open for me at the end of the year?

Love to Chris but it's beyond my control.

You've just upset Mrs Wombat, Chris. She says you wouldn't be able to catch a 200SX anyway.
