  1. Here is a video from Western Australia, about 150 miles north from Steep Point where I fish.

     

    The video is taken by a friend of mind "Tailor Marc" also a member on here. he is a pro photographer which shows at the end of this clip.

     

    Sit back and watch almost 20 minutes.

     

    And remember there is nothing near this place. The nearest town south is 100 miles away and 300 miles to the north.

    There are still places here that have never seen a fishing line.

     

     

    I hope this link works, and can somebody please let me know on this forum.

     

    All the best

  2. Chief, It does now look like an October-November trip to the US, I will keep everybody up to date.

    6-8 weeks, thats 6-8 weekends I will have free, plenty of time to drink and fish.

     

    Where should I be fishing in October-November, I'll organize my travel around the best fishing spots.

    Some places I will be going are as follows:

     

    Boston, New York, Detroit, 3 or four stops in Texas, 10 or so in CA, 5 in FL, and a few of the eastern States, NC, SC, GA, WV, Washington, DW and NJ.

  4. Yeah Clive looks cold but look at his sun burnt legs...tells you all you need to know.

     

    NICE job on the stuck truck, doesn't look like you let it get to the rails.

     

    Looks like a fun group a long way from anywhere.

     

    Hope all is well with you and yours.

     

    Chief, great to hear from you, and yes me and mine are all good.

     

    Luckily Clive with his car, was behind us, so towed us backwards. No way could he have towed us forward if he was in front. Just too steep and way too soft.

     

    And we have plenty of shovels!

     

    All the best Chief, and maybe I will be back in NJ later this year, this time for work (and some play)

  5. Looks like a great trip with some nice fish. I would suggest some time in the Beach Buggy Forum getting some ideas on how we keep from getting stuck.

     

    Peace

     

    Why thanks, just what I needed to cheer me up. Only the third time ever being stuck in this vehicle, it generally goes anywhere, 300hp, fully mechanical diff lockers, big fat 15PSI tyres and its a Crusier, the best 4x4 in Australia.

     

    Having said that, the previous two times I got stuck were within 5 minutes of each other. The first was going over a bump that was too high and grounded the middle of the car and had all four tyres off the sand. That was just embarrassing. A bit of digging and rocking and we were free.

     

    Only minutes later, whilst driving in the soft sand, I was trying to open my celebration beer having now escaped the previous problem, and not really looking where I was going or doing I promptly found myself stuck again. Bugger!

     

    The moral of the story "Don't Drink and Drive", beer gets you bogged.

  6. Yes, the weather here, now into Autumn, was still a very warm 90F with plenty of sunshine.

     

    The Trevally (the largest) went just over 25lb, however we do not eat these and will always return them if possible.

    Richard, pictured above the larger of the two Trevally, did keep that one, however I do not know what it was like, I will ask.

     

    Clive, with the Snapper, looks cold, but that is actually to keep the sun off. he's very fair skinned.

  7. On our recent fishing trip to Steep Point, where it has not rained in almost 12 months (I think it has had 1/2 inch in 12 months) the sand was rather soft.

     

    As you can see, it did not go well on the steep hill into the region.1000

     

    Shovel in hand, ready to dig, and you can see the track behind Clive. it does not look very steep in the pictures, but it is quite a long climb.

    1000

     

    However the trip did go well with a couple of thumping fish.

     

    Baracuda

    1000

     

    Snapper

    1000

     

    Golden Travelly

    1000

     

    A bigger Golden Travelly

    1000

     

    And our campsite 4 hours from anywhere. Nearest shop 8-9 hour drive. Dont forget the beer.

     

    1000

     

    As awlways, we did not get photo's of all the fish, but we caught plenty.

  8. Big boys don't cry

     

    Unfortunately, yesterday I had to attend the funeral of my niece, Amber.

     

    Amber was only twenty years young when struck suddenly by an asthma attack while shopping at the local mall with a friend.

     

    She was noisy, vocal and stood up for herself, but she was everybody's friend and had a large group of close friends for the local church group. Over 100 of these friends attended the funeral.

     

    I have one outstanding memory of Amber that happened when she was only about six or seven. We had just finished Christmas lunch, which is always at my place, and as we were walking out of the front door Amber realized she had not yet given me my goodbye hugs and kisses. In her haste she swung around to run to me but I was only one step behind her. Being only 3 feet tall at the time Ambers face buried itself into my stomach and she bounced backwards back out the front door. First there was shock as she was unsure what just happened, then laughter as she now knew what had happened. Standing there with her hand over her mouth, a small trickle of blood appeared on the chin, and then the comment "Uncle Mark, you broke me" and the cutest grim you could ever want to see.

     

    That is what I will remember of our little Amber. She lives on in my heart.

     

    As I was saying, big boys don't cry, well that's a load of baloney. It doesn't take much to start if all off. With the girls already in full howl, a few guys, and these guys are all in the late teens and early twenties, were really struggling to keep their composure. As the congregation was asked to place flowers on the coffin it became too much for so many. Me included. I think you need to let go of your pride and show your feelings on occasions like this, as nobody will think anything of it, and nobody did. I have never seen so many young men open their hearts and just let go. It was in the end quite an uplifting feeling for most of the crowd.

     

    Amber, Fly High, Fly Safe.

     

    Your Uncle Mark


  9. I cheated. A new 2013 Camaro on the Aussie website lists the 8 cyl. models starting at $109,000 and the SS model starting at $123,000.

     

    Well Arby, you cheated, but thats what the interweb is good at.

     

    Yes $123,000 AUS dollars.

     

    I can buy a Holden GTS fully whipped up with 700HP, all the good fruit for about $70,000.

     

    I also asked him about a Challanger, he reckon about the same price..$123,000, for a DODGE....

     

    Mind you NASA paid $4.3Million for a toilet seat on the space station...

     

    So, anybody wanna throw me $120K

     

    Love you always

  10. I agree, a manual (stick) gear box would be better.

     

    However mabye I need to point out what I am trying to do here.

     

    Tell me how much this car is in your state, and i will tell you how much it is here.

     

    It is in stock here in Perth in that configuration. And I have no want to actually buy it.

     

    So if you were to get a quote on this car tell me your price?

     

    Does that make more sense now.

  11. So, how much should I be paying for this car, it is brand new (50 miles on the clock) and in stock reday to collect.

     

    Whilst in Wahington last year I saw one that was a 1SS coupe fully optioned for $37,040.00 (see photo)

     

    1000

    1000

    1000

     

    So what would you pay for this car in your state?

     

    I'll give you the price they are asking soon.

     

    BTW, remember I am in Australia.

    Looks like you will need a third prize, so without any thought as to what an Aussie can help with with, I will cough up a thrird prize for you.

     

    Something Australian, something fishy, and hopefully quite light...(if you have any ideas let me know)

     

    Also let me know as to whom to send something to and I will fulfil my end as soon as possible.

  14. C'mon guys, are you going to be shown up by a kangaroo chasing, Foster guzzling Australian? (Only kidding STAX) Whip out the checkbook and make those donations. These folks are hurting real bad.

     

    I DONT DRINK FOSTERS!!!

     

    Nobody in Oz drinks Fosters we only export it to you yanks.

    And I am too slow to chase kangaroo's, (can get them in my truck though!!!)
