Anzac weekend

Post by gold n beer on Mon 18 Apr 2016, 2:44 pm

anyone getting away for a few days over the long weekend?.
my plans are up in the air, was planning to have the week off work this week until i got the choice of start a new house or face 4 weeks out of work.
so now it's been cut back to the long weekend and looking like a solo run as every bugger I've asked has pulled the pin [at least it was early notice].
any members keen for a quick spin up to paynes find area over the weekend just PM me, and will fill you in on details.
cheers

the place is fairly well worked over, but we knew that.
it still produces every time but you gotta work for your few pieces.
i was only their for 2 days and only spent a few hours on the old spot we hit a couple times and nailed 1 little nug on me 1st target.
we tried half dozen different spots with most off them producing a piece or 2 for someone
nice to get back out their, had a good time.
i must say with all due respect, i was not a fan off the ANZAC day ceremony being held in Bindoon shutting off the great northern highway for 20 minutes on the trip home.
traffic was built up for a couple k's either way, you think they could have held it next to the bloody highway and not on it, although i did get a good laugh at the trucker's having there say about it on the radio

Just got back from 5 luvly days in the Cue area.
Flies were bad and the mosquito's drove us mad at night, I'm covered in little red lumps. and the flies are starting to eat the horse bum fly cream, ya gotta use it a couple times a day now.
as for gold, I only got one piddly little piece but Mr Gutfeeling killed it with his 5000 hooked up to the NF "Sadie".
I've got an idea what I'm doing next and it don't involve a 7000 Razz

cheers

One thing I cannot stand is Midge bites & over the years I have tried different things, But one year I cmae up trumps when I made Chilli Olive Oil..... I now carry it with me with some cotton buds.... just dab it on the bites and within 15 minutes..... gone....... Let me know if its the same for you if you try it.... patent pending of coarse... wink

Hi All,

Try roll on deodorant that is in a clear bottle and the deodorant is clear also, takes the sting out and you can get some rest, we use Nivea

Viper, I like the recipe, will give it a go
Thanks Ron

Dettol and baby oil. 50/50 mix. Apply before you get destroyed by the little so and so's. I went into anaphylactic? shock from them once. Entire body was covered in little red lumps. I was that itchy I would have shot myself if could have concentrated on the job. Just burnt head to toe. Yeap, 2 days in hospital cheers

I had a bottle stuffed with whole chilli dragon.... but for a quick fix .... maybe crushed chilli in a small jar of olive oil.... bearing in mind my brew had time to leach into the oil... good luck.... I feel for you...

We ended up with a few bits but the week before at Westonia and Southern X were a waste of time.



We went three different places for four pieces. The weather was pretty good though.
