Edition 380: 2 April 2015

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

The 4-day long weekend is upon us and school holidays are occurring now in most states. Some people choose Easter as a time to get away for a short break, whilst others find the crowds unbearable, or choose to stay home to avoid the higher risk of accidents at this time. If you are driving this Easter, here's a few great tips about how to avoid driver fatigue.

The Bureau of Meterology is also warning that autumn is the peak season for hazardous surf and combines with the high tides from Easter's full moon. This increases the risk of danger when rock fishing so remember to check when the high tide is, look out for large waves and avoid fishing off rocks in strong winds. For further fishing tips, see the Fishing & Boating section on our website here.

Please note our office will be closed over the entire Easter period.

Happy Camping!
Michelle, Adele, David

How to Find your posts

If you've created a post in the Forum and want to go back and find it, here's a few tips to help you.

Firstly, edit your subscription options (Changes Settings in My Home) to ensure you are registered to receive Forum Responses by Email. This way, you'll receive an email alert (with a link to your post) any time a person posts a reply to your post (excluding followups to other people's replies).. As an added bonus to Members, the email will also contain a copy of their reply, thus saving you from opening the website to keep a track of incoming replies.

But, perhaps you wish to go back to your original post to provide further information. If you don't know the Thread ID, just enter your Screen Name into the appropriate search box. This will bring up all your posts in chronological date order. Too easy!
