    Air Canada to Restart Australia Flights but only for Fully Vaccinated Passengers

    I managed to get an Air Canada SYD-YVR return for $1300 in Feb. 2019.

    Sun peaks 2021/2022

    Things looks different from a 73 year old perspective, Simon. I don't know how long I will remain fit and strong and I've already missed two local and one northern hemisphere seasons. At this stage, I'm happy to roll the dice and if I have some medical misadventure overseas, so be it. That...

    Travel Life 2021/2022 - Canada Plans

    At least one good thing has come from this pandemic - don't have to fly SYD-YVR with freakin' Air Canada.

    What was your first bush walk ?

    You want old? The first bushwalk I remember was in Balgowlah! It was still bushland in those days. Saw me first snake (yellow bellied black). Most impressed.

    Have you travelled abroad and/or returned during COVID?

    Went skiing in Japan in February 2020, when half the known cases in the world were on the Diamond Princess in Tokyo Bay.

    Another Kr..pmandu story

    Hey, that's a very unfair thing to say. Growth in the share price is just as important as dividends!

    I wonder if they've shifted their manufacturing offshore in the past 21 years. :rolleyes:

    Advice needed Help me keep my legs together

    It was more of a question than a suggestion. I can do it when I happen to find myself on Friday Flat, but it involves regressing to how I learned to ski on straight cut 220cm planks - by sliding and rotating the skis around with no edges. It looks superficially impressive to beginners, but it's...

    Tony, can you ski with your boots touching on an easy slope?

    Advice needed Help me keep my legs together

    I remember when I were a lad, this was considered really important. Allegedly, to qualify as an instructor in Austria, you had to be able to ski a black run holding a handkerchief between your knees. I thought it was less emphasised these days. You certainly see some stylish skiers who ski with...

    Question Any gyms and swimming pools in Perisher Valley? Any ice skating rinks in Jindy?

    If you are accessing Perisher via the skitube, the pool at Thredbo Leisure Centre is just 16 minutes from Bullocks Flat and it's - how can I put it? - Premium! Full Olympic heated pool, not to mention the waterslide. My favourite way to finish a day skiing is with a few laps before dinner.

    June 2021 - Forums XF 2.0 Upgrade. File your complaints & bug reports here.

    The "View More" button on the Active Topics and Latest Posts pages is irritating. When you click it, it takes you back to the top of the page you were viewing. It should be called the "Start Again" button. Even crazier, it only displays on page 1, not on subsequent pages.

    The good news is, I just did it again quoting your post without the attachment preview appearing.

    I hacked that. It's not the normal behaviour. I was inflamed at the idea that an image couldn't be displayed in a quote.
