Well had a good 21 day trip to the cape the crew I had with me were great .
No problems other than 2 flat tyres one was a 3inch nail and the other was a stick into the side wall. Both sets of rubber were hwy type. I was pleased to see for the first time in a few seasons not as much rubbish around . I think people are starting to think about the big picture . The only thing that still has to be addressed is the toilet paper issue. At the begining of each one of our trips I ask the people to dig a hole and do your thing then burn the loo paper . As we travel along I point out the sorbent flowers and they soon see how unsightly it looks . We camped on the south side of Cockatoo Creek on the way up and I spent the first 10 minutes collecting the loo paper and burning it . The thing is the animals pigs etc dig up and eat the poo but not the paper . The north side of Cockatoo was a disgcrace full of loo paper.
Also to andrew we had some good beach runs at ......... and ......... and ....... also ........ was as good as usual.
All the best

I,m planning a run up there next year, however, the thought of all those "sorbent flowers" puts me right off. Hope you wre using gloves and long handled tongs, not the ones you use to cook the steak with either! Better book in for a Hep.C shot!

Steve a long handle shovel and a peg for the the fresh ones . All jokes a side the toilet paper is about the biggest rubbish problem this season and it is amazing where you will see it trying to be hidden.

We had a great trip to the Cape, Eric. Went to visit Dal Nixon at Shelburne Bay and had a great look at the dunes. He wants me to do an email so the world will know what he is really like and not all the "bullsh*t" stuff that people write. Will get around to that soon.
Found quite a few nice beaches to drive on up at the Cape so thanks for your encouragement!!!!
Thanks for picking up my dunny paper too. LOL (really none was mine).
Andrew
