I saw one on the post at Windy Corner - the intersection of the Talawana Track and the Canning.

Is this the most remote EO sticker placement?

Like your pic. Got one of those myself.

Nope QV Spring was too far of the track as we screamed back from Perth to Vic.

However I did get FTF on "Northside's Canning Stock Route" which was also placed in 2002 and unclaimed until this year. Very happy was I too :o)))

Much to the disappointment of some cachers who had planned assaults shortly after mine. See the logs. Hee hee.

"Is this the most remote EO sticker placement? "

or

The most remote case of vandalism?
I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

No damage has been done to anyones property. If anyone felt strongly about it I assume it's just a matter of ripping it off.

Sorry Ray ... But...

I'm with The Explorer on this one.

I HATE getting somewhere and some d i c k h e a d has left something behind for me to clean up.

"Ripping it off" is not the point here.

The point is we should not leave anything behind but footprints, and light ones at that.

I'd be exeptionally p!ssed if it was an EO sticker.

We shouldnt leave behind...
bottle tops
cigarette butts
cans in the fire-place half burnt
bags of rubbish of any kind
little tin things off beer can tops (ring pullers I think)

LEAVE NOTHING BEHIND ... ESPECIALLY A BLOODY STICKER WHICH WILL EVENTUALLY COME UNSTUCK AND GET BLOWN INTO THE BUSH AND TAKE I DONT KNOW HOW LONG TO BREAK DOWN.

C'mon guys. wake up.

I believe in keeping the enviroment clean as well James but obviously I'm not quite as pedantic about it as you about it. If placing a sticker gives people enjoyment then I'm prepared to live with it, I don't consider it to be in the same category as the other rubbish you mention. I don't complain about space junk and items left on the moon either.

If I could get up there with a couple of empty hession sacks I would.

Yes I am pedantic, and I'm glad we can both see that for what it is.

I am a nut for keeping the bush tidy. Maybe not tidy but natural.

You're making me think now, hang on a moment.

By placing a sticker there it's just like they are claiming ownership of it. Of the land. Of a part of the whole world.

Sing posts and management posts are (attempting) to manage the land, even if they don't achieve their goal. Or have a political agenda.

We are owned by the world. We are smaller that it. We are at it's mercy and I find it disrespectful and ignorant that we would even think we are equal to it. That is reality.

By leaving rubbish behind is saying I don't accept reality that it will end up a burden on someone or ... I don't accept reality that it will end up being a burden on the bush to cope with the extra chore of now adapting to the rubbish.

By sticking a sticker on a post not placed there for the sticking of stickers is saying "I don't accept reality" I think I am bigger than the whole. "I am bigger than the world"

Which of course we are not.

It is arrogance. It is rude. It is little. It is certainly as you point out, not me.

Taking a dump on the fire is OK by me.

As long as it's burned up and doused with water before you leave.

And how can you be sure it has burned off? I suppose that every time I come across a used fire pit that I will let my nose tell me if iMusty has been there before me, and so keep well away. Trouble is then a new fire pit would need to be dug, that would further encroach on the fragile land on which we live.

I am not a simple bloke Ray, I am a rather complicated on the edge, confused & simply annoying middle-aged slightly overweigh and opinionated good hearted man.

Easy to hate and ... not so easy to love.

BUT I enjoy out friendship anyway Ray.

So if you like, we can go out and stick stickers up anywhere you like.

I'll be way-pointing them (with your help) so I can scurry back a week later to remove them all. lol.

Just don't have a fire mate.

No need for a new firepit.

Thanks for the sticker offer but after all that I really have no such desire but I'll defend the rights of others to get a bit of pleasure and fun out of life.....without going overboard of course.

Jeeeessus, I opened a can of wrigglys there.

Let me put a different spin on it from someone who has been there and seen it.

This sticker pales into insignificance compared with the following list of items found on the Canning Stock Route

Burnt out Land Rover
Burnt out Ford Explorer
God knows how many 44 gallon drums
90kg gas bottle
Remains of at least 3 trailers
Remains of 2 motorcycles
Remains of a carry me camper
Murray Rankins Trolley
Signs: new, old, burnt, historic,
Jars to leave messages in taped to sign posts
At fuel dump: bull bars, roof racks, tyres, jerry cans etc.
Toilet paper - for the love of Pete girls bury it. It's sand - digging a hole here is as easy as it gets!
Remains of wells

Consider the following
***Does writing a message on a well lid for the safety or information of following travellers constitute grafiti - or should the well lid not be there in the first place?
***Does the fact that recovering the wreck is more than a new vehicle is worth mean that it is right just to leave it on the side of the Canning?

Don't get me wrong, I grew up in National Parks in Vic as in a NP family. I beleive that impact should be minimal but this EO Sticker is inoffensive compared to the alternatives left by others.

Personally I think the greatest act of vandalism on the Canning is the appalling well restoration of Well 3 by Foothills 4wd Club using Waratah mesh fence, gal strapping, teck screws, treated pine posts etc. I admire the intention and the effort but travelling north to south it was SO disappointing to see this and the Chamberlain tractor club efforts at well restoration. I'd rather see them left as ruins. At least they have character.

The sticker harms no one or thing on the partially burnt Windy Corner sign on which it was left, no more than the message jar that is also there.

Have a look at the pics here and then decide for yourself. Click on the rather obvious link at the top of this page.

A crane demolished the ABC in an earlier storm than the one that recently destroyed the cathedral in Bunbury.

It's hardly stopped! We were in Bunbury on 1 April getting the exhaust gas temp gauge fitted and it was bucketing down - and my daughter rang to say we wouldn't get home - trees all across the road and so wet. A couple of weeks later another storm - we didn't have too may trees left to fall across the road, but Bunbury looked like a bombed war zone. It was only a couple of weeks ago that storm damage included the old cathedral on the hill - it as since had to be demolished.

In reference to "motherhen" post that said - "A crane demolished the ABC in an earlier storm than the one that recently destroyed the cathedral in Bunbury. "

And - in reference to "Davoe (Widgiemooltha)" post that said - "I think that was in albany, In Busso the church got wrecked"

You are both wrong - sorry.

Actually - both events happened in the SAME storm, and in Bunbury, not Albany or Busso.

Take it from a local.

The reason for the confusion is that the cathedral was actually "damaged beyond repair" in the storm, but was still standing. It was only recently totally demolished as it was a safety hazard. It is probably the act of demolition that made the news.

Yup, drogger is spot on, and the cathedral was not damaged by the crane, only the storm. It was demolished with a tear in a few eyes too. It was like turning off the life support...

so when you fart you search for it?
when you take a dump you take that home?
when you sneeze you go searching for the 4billion particles that fly out at 100mph?

Although ray, they did crash that thing into that comet the other day, I think we have a volunteer to go and clean it up.. what ya think?

Thanks for putting me onto your 4wd club site the other day. I'll be able to learn a lot there.

Hard to know what's crossing the line and what's having a good time. So is it stepping on someone else's rights to see the area in its pristine condition?? Must say nothing pisses me off more is going to a spot and seeing someone's crap around the place, cig butts, cable ties, bottle tops, tissues etc, etc, stickers. Get a life guys no one really cares about your feeble attempt to leave your mark, put your shat back into your car!! I travel to see the environment not the rubbish or ornaments you leave behind.
