Happy new years fellow ExploreOz ers. (I think I spelled that correct) We have just renewed our membership, actually a fellow Aus friend gave us a great Christmas gift by renewing it for a 2nd year. Thanks Mick O. We have visited your country 3 times and travelled the outback. This web site is very helpful in our adventures. You Australians set a standard when it comes to hospitality. You should be proud of yourselves, it is for this reason that we return. Thanks for all the camp fire friendships in the outback. I look forward to many more in the new year. Scott & Gaby from Canada. P.S. if your coming to Canada let us know.

Hi Scott and Gaby. Happy New Year to you too!!!

I have been reading of your adventures with Mick on his blogs. You have seen more of the outback than most aussies.

I might see you again on the tracks when you next visit.

Scott & Gaby,

Careful with the praise. We could well end up not being able to fit our hats.
I agree that we have some wonderful places to visit and I don't think it would be possible to see it all in one lifetime. We have friends who visit Canada regularly and have family there so we do know a little without actually having been there. Apart from the 'normal' touristy things I would love to be in Calgary area for the harvest time. One day.

Just looking at your profile picture and the scenery is so in contrast to what we have at the moment. 11.05 am January 1st 34degrees C with cloudless sky and no breeze. Humidity at 70% with a forecast of storms tonight. We are on the Sunshine Coast just north of Brisbane (Queensland). I am told that it is quite cool further south in Melbourne and Hobart. As you know well it is a big country and a land of contrast.

Thank you for your seasons greetings and may 2009 bring you again to our shores.

Kevin & Margaret J

Happy new years Kevin, fitting your hat is no problem. Its -15C here and we just got a snow storm that brought us 15cm of snow. God, we love it. That's what is so great, snow here and lovely desserts there. Take care

Happy New Year to you and yours also.
Like so many others I have followed your exploits with Mick O via his blogs. As someone already posted, you have seen more remote country than most of us.
And thanks to Mick's blogs, we feel that we "know" you.
Have a great New Year, and we hope that you return to our shores to share more adventures with us here on Exploroz.

And remember...a moose has antlers! The ones with the hump are camels!

Happy NY you two. 2009 could be just as big as 2010 for travel. Get a few weeks off and come over.

You mean Camels don't have antlers? No wonder I am confused.
