Hi Ed.
Yes, great place to see on a bike. My parents live on the Forestiers Penninsula on the way to Port Arthur. There are always stacks of bikes heading down that way. Carving up those twisty, sweeping bends. It is a bit like that add for the new Camry. Hunting for the twisty road.
Let me know when you come down. Use my parents as home base.

Hi Norm,

Always good to see you here. Hope your health is still on the improve.

I'm not sure this example demonstrates "toughness" though.

There's a fine line between "Tough" and just plain silly!!!!!!!

Cheers,

Craig.

Hi All
Just to put my 2c in, I have lived in most of these places you have quoted temps from and some. Tasmania I am yet to experience but will be there on the 23 Aug 03.

Now we have not heard anything from our Vic members. Ask some one from East Gippsland about cold. I lived in Sale for many years now that is one confusing place you can have all 4 seasons in just one day down there.

Now for Canberra its the wind chill factor that gets you there.

Richmond is much the same as Canberra.

Ipswich lived hear for 2.5 years got down to -7 winter last year so far this year -3. and it can take till lunch to warm up.

So as you can see ppl up here in what these queenslanders call gods country are full of cr@p. It does get bloody cold up.

I want both a heater and an aircon.

True.
My Sister lives in Cairns. Magic she reckons. Beautiful. Lovely weather all the time. 30 degrees everyday. Problem is, you jump in the water for a swim, you either die from a Crocadile attack in the rivers, or get killed by a jelly fish in the sea:o  Shocked
She has been flooded out twice in the "Green Season" & nearly blown away with the cyclones they get.
Now I do like QLD, but when they mouth off about how great it is up there, they ALWAYS seem to forget the bad stuff. Just like my sister!! Roll Eyes
Then there is my Brother in-law. Dickhead!! Mate, Sydney is so much better than Hobart. Hobart is a cold shithole he reckons. Sydney is where it is at. Then I find out exactly where he lives in "Sydney". A place called Kariong. one & a half hours north of Sydney on a clear run. 3 hours when it is peak hour. That is like me saying I live in Launceston. At least Launceston is only 2 hours away!! Also, Kariong has been colder all last week than it was here. Go figure!!!
Lets face it, we are all different & all like different things. Imagine if we all lived in the same place. Boring, Huh??

I lived in Cairns for 4 years and hey I wouldnt put crap on it whatsoever, The weather is sweet as ,The night life is brilliant, The girls are into keeping fit and a catagory 3 cyclone has less blow in it than a good southerly here in Wollongong.
I surf too and didnt mind exchanging it for the lifestyle that would be hard to equal anywhere in Australia. Smiley

Hi Harko.
Not putting crap on Cairns, just stating a fact. She lives there & has for 8 years. All those things are true. No crap, just fact. Like I said, I like Cairns & QLD, but we all have to be honest.

I am with Rob on this one Harko.
But I will say NSW is the best state closely followed by SA ( I have to say that the is a crow eater). There is only one thing wrong with QLD. There are to many Queenslanders here and there NRL team is crap.

Go the mighty BLUE's Cool

Hi Jim.

When you come down to TAS, I will show you around. I am sure you will love it. I may even show you a couple of the old car stashes that are about. Bring one of those angry dogs that you train & we can set that onto the old bloke that tries to shoot you when you sneak into his car graveyard. It should buy us a bit of time to have a peak!!

John M.
Good point, mate. But don't we all talk about the weather?? Human nature I suppose. I will find a parcel shelf for Slim to thank him for letting us use his post as a weather discussion.
