What they were like in there day
Now these are to be visited but not right now in the winter coolness as I am getting to smart for that so a after winter ride it shall be .
They were built to listen out there so to speak
which is held on the JUNE long week-end each year.
The rally is held in 2 different places 1 a more road bike friendly venue and the next year a off road site and so on so its available for all.
The off road one was in 2014 so wont be there this year but it is the one that has piccadilly circus on-route.
S 35 21 32.5, E 148 47 59.0
The name had me wondering of its origin so a little searching I found the reasoning
so the story is now known and I will sleep a little easier tonite .

Wheres the cat when you need one as I dont even own a cat.
A look out the back this afternoon I was greeted with a bird destruction party going on and they seemed to be enjoying it so it seems.
1st culprit was a cockie which seemed to enjoy the taste of lemons
and in so doing stripped the tree of any useable lemons for future use.
This is the second year in a row they have decided to sour the crop of lemons which I do enjoy usually but alas not this year again it seems.
Then as I was in the shed it was getting bombarded with small acorn style nuts from the adjoining tree and a investigation found why
chomping on these
then dropping them to make a racket on the tin roof.
Looking around you find this
piling up and are sharp when trodden on with bare feet and make a bloody mess which they don't seem to care about .
Well some brooming and raking coming up before the next mow on the lawn to try and get rid of them.
OH the wonders of nature as I did manage to scare them both off but in no time they returned and kept on doing whatever they wanted to do

Had the reason to buy a new phone recently and might as well put a post about it as why not .
Looks like the old proverbial brick as they were called and yes its about the same size as they were back in the good old days of the first mobile phones but the difference for this purchase is that its a satellite phone which shouldn’t need to much explaining .
It was sold as a refurbished phone so a second –hand checked out model which doesn’t worry me as did not want to spend top price for one as it will only be used when needed and not a daily user so to speak.
Yes bought from a reputable dealer SATPHONESALES so was happy with the service and the deal as it came with 2 chargers a AC and DC car one so can keep it charged while out on the road.
The dealer was going to get it all hooked up for me as it needs to be hooked up through a sat server but a I wasn’t going to need it done straight away for my need I just got it delivered and found a local business who could do the paperwork and all involved to get this done which as of now it is all a goer and running .
Now the catch for this type of phone is they are super expensive to use so as with most things nowadays there are different options to sign up to with plans.
The one I went for was the cheapo so the calls that are charged to you if you make any are fairly pricey but the winning thing is that someone who calls you are only charged at a normal mobile phone call rate so if you have pre-arranged calling times it works out cheap way of communication when there is no service available in the regional areas so people can know what is going on and if you do need to call for help just use it and make the call and get charged for it .
A small price if it saves you or someone else out in the wilds .
