Any: I rode the Melbourne tram without a ticket once. I felt soo guilty until ms pink jacket tells me that its free for inner city stuff :p I guess the argument is that if you can afford an expensive ski holiday, you should also be able to pay your fines. I had a ridiculous scenario when I was overseas one year. I got home to a stack of letters; I was selected for jury duty, of course I didn't show up. ' for not appearing. (I love that it was an excuse not a reason or something more formal) Received a fine for not showing/supplying a valid reason. An additional fine for not paying the fine. A court summons for not paying fines. Some sort of court fine for not showing up to court. A fine for not paying the court fine. A summons to local police station. A fine for not appearing at local police station. A court date for prosecution for I guess all of it. A fine for not showing up to that one. Some notice of impending incarceration. And finally a letter from some police topdog, saying they bothered to check if I was in the country or not, and to simply ignore all previous correspondence/fines/etc. I'm happy that it all worked itself out in the end. But I was sure furious reading all the mail.
Is it about my cube?

rowdyflat: I had to write a medical report for a bloke with a mental condition. He had over $43,000 worth of fines including fines for fines such as travelling without an etag on Citylink and not paying. better tell him not to go to Hotham.

rowdyflat: Not sure that I understand . Hotham has crappy parking ?
rowdyflat: Do you think There’s a lot of hot vehicles parked at Hotham? Bizarre to clamp vehicles without a valid pass - isnt it? The tougher end of policing?
Rumour is that its supposedly a really good spot to catch outstanding warrants and repeat offenders. Surely simply missing a one day RMB entry permit isn't clamp worthy. We were joking today that a $100 outstanding fine becomes $300 with clamp, then $500 with rmb fine for not moving your car, then $700 after not having rmb entry the next day, then $900 after not moving car the next day. Rinse repeat ;P

Any: Oh, forgot to mention. There was some sort of police / sheriff sting going on today at Mt Hotham. In the space of an hour we saw at least 3 police and 5+ sheriff cars doing checks and number plate scanning. I only saw one "happy customer", but my neighbors said they were sitting on their balcony with binoculars watching them book and even clamp cars all over the place.

mr: This season has been way better than the last 2 because im not locked in my fucken house
That is a major consideration. I am very much enjoying getting to ski as much as I have this year after so little the last three for me. Allocating more time for will be about 30 days in snow this year means summer bad weather/snow days I and my ski partners are ok to skip the day or do a short one.

snowgum: If it helps at all, it was pretty bad two weeks ago in the three-day rain event. We’ve had some shockers lately - I’m almost ready for spring (like) skiiing. :rolleyes:
There have been some very crappy weather periods this season. You were unlucky in your week at Falls. I was at home with Covid that week. Hoping to get some calmer weather on my next few trips.

dmz: From one of the best days Ive had at Hotham last Tuesday to one of the worst today. Gale force winds, zero visibility and rain. Cant see any lifts opening any time soon. Board games at the lodge kind of day.
