    Immediately after Haakon's bridge (I'm assuming this is the shipping container one with Canberra on it?) it drops off to the right. I didn't see another jump line, where is this?

    Yep, top to bottom. It finishes at the end of Old Duffy's. It looks so good, like a baby vapour. It was pretty obvious it was closed off when I was there last week, there were tape and signs.

    Increase in Dickhead behaviour?

    Possibly related, but lately I've been toying with the idea of getting a motorbike again, it's been over ten years since I last had a bike. I went for a test ride last week for a few hours, and was surprised at how many nods I didn't get returned, and not just from the usual Harley and scooter...

    Fork Oil questions and queries.

    I've thought about using chain and bar oil too, but haven't because some of it is vegetable based and biodegradable and intended to breakdown quickly. I've never been sure which is which, and I always just stock up on the cheapest stuff I find.

    The QUICK question thread.....

    Thanks, that's what I thought. Part #2 is hard plastic, and even tough I'm tightening #3 pretty hard it's not deforming to sit flush on the rim. All the other valves I've used have had an oring or soft rubber washer in #2 spot, if I tighten it further I was worried about it damaging the rim...

    The QUICK question thread.....

    Does anyone know how these Schwalbe tubeless valves are supposed to work? Instead of a small oring there's a hard plastic thing with a concave bit.

    Look on the bright side, you get to find stuff that's been missing for ages. Seriously though, all the best with it. 10kms is not far, start preparing now.

    Fire Warnings

    The picture in that story shows a wombat down at Tallowa dam, anyone that's been there would have seen the terrible state they have been in for years, they're all infected with mange and due to stupid bureaucracy they've been unable to be treated. They die a slow horrible death while infecting...

    Fire Warnings

    The Fires Near Me app became not very helpful for us in the last week or so. For example the fire at the Sussex Inlet intersection that was all over the national news didn't show up for a couple of days. We used the satellite hot spot imaging from geoscience Australia. Then get wind predictions...

    Fire Warnings

    A funny thing happened when the southerly wind blew in on one of those hot days a couple of weeks ago. The fire was pretty much directly south of us 8 or 9 kms away. When the wind kicked in and caused the fire to kick off, the smoke from the fire billowed straight up and over the top of us. We...
