No doubt many ExplorOz members and readers will be out and about over the Easter break.

Please be sensible and drive within your capabilities and return home safely after the Easter period.

Easter is a dangerous time on our roads so please be diligent and be patient if traffic is heavier than usual.

You will get to your destination and so what if your 10 or 20 minutes late. At least you arrived.

Happy camping everyone wherever you may be going.

Cheers.

Every Easter it seems that thew road toll mounts. It's now so bad that we don't go anywhere we don't have to over Easter.

If a reminder helps to save one life over Easter then consider this a reminder.
Slow down and be patient !

G/Day Footy

I have just arrived home from a Job Site at Underwood, and the traffic on the M1 heading both ways is crazy, it seems everyone is going away, for Easter, we are staying home on the Gold Coast, the Cook just got back from the shops, and we will have a lazy weekend at home, I might wander down to Tallebudgera Creek, and put the crab pots out, try to catch some Muddies, and a few Mangrove Jack, and keep out of trouble lol lol.

ANY BODY WHO READS THIS HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE EASTER.

Cheers
Daza

Daza, likewise. Although I haven't even fished for a compliment since seeing the size of the mangrove jack in Weipa. As for catching crabs.....
I'll just hopefully survive the next 10 days looking after the dogs and house etc. Son and Wife off o/s.
Oh well ....

Full time work??? you mean having his swag under the desk to sleep in whilst everyone thinks he is out working. Gives Kev the energy to do all the other things...LOL

Anyhow have a great Easter.

Hi Kev

At least your coffee wont be like the ones served up at the sons soccer canteen last year. The team manager had never worked in canteen before, so when asked for a coffee he kept going to an urn next to him and filling up the cups from it and selling them.

About 30 mins later someone else working there noticed what he was doing and couldnt stop laughing - he was filling the cups up with water fron the hotdog urn. Everyone had kept on buying them and said they tasted great. Not sure if it will ever take off in the coffee shops though like mochas etc - hotdog coffee mmmmmm - CUL8R
