Yet another benefit of snowboarding!

(Granted, I favour bibs over pants, but at least the sole of my boot has some traction.)

Fortunately our law doesn't discriminate.

I'm talking people being morally outraged by any incident that occurs to a large corporate - whether its through negligence or dealing with something that is hard to control, as opposed to NPWS which the same critics of mines would all know and love - and be happy to accept a logical explanation from.

An example could be people morally outraged about mine water releases which may have been necessary to prevent more serious consequences such as dam failures.
At least Park Visitors are able to use a waste treatment facility whilst visiting Perisher, flaws and all resulting in the odd drama. There are many other places where there are no toilets or enough of them in national parks and the results are significantly worse. The Pink Lake in W.A is one such example. New Zealand now has "Do not poo in the bushes" signs around many of their "pristine" camping sites due to excessive contamination. Cameras are being installed and limits placed on overnight visitors. Things are unlikely to improve as populations just keep growing. I wish we could stop breeding (not so much the act!) for a while to take some pressure off our planet - just my opinion?

Took a pre dawn walk up Mt P with @chicski and @DidSurfNowSki to view the meteorite shower. Early low cloud put paid to that but still fun with a good walk straight up then later on back via Vista and HV....

Looks like a great way to start the day. It's almost unimaginable to see people in jackets and gloves and I would give almost anything just to find a jumper necessary or to require a blanket at night. Queensland has all but melted and it doesn't look like it will change any time soon. It is mentally and physically draining to think about doing anything like walking up a steep hill. Envious.

By the look of @DidSurfNowSki gloves, he was doing a bit of gardening up there:D

Decamped from Moonbah up to Eyre Cafe for a few hours to escape the heat and dust. A nice mild 25 degrees with a good breeze. Chook from Woolies and a few Coronas.

Steve was there getting prepared for the annual Boxing Day opening. Shouted him a beer and had a good chat. Cafe has had a paint job inside and its planned for a water outlet (tap and or bubbler) to be installed on the Southern external wall for customer use. Replaces the old water esky that was outside.

Summer opening will be 7 days a week from Boxing Day through the holiday period. Thereafter reduced back to Thursday to Sunday. To be confirmed.

It’s drier than past seasons with less runoff into the drainage system around the cafe.

@robbo mcs, Noel asked me to send his regards from the gate:rolleyes:. Getting an early start on vm’s apparently LOL.

No sign of any Summer preparatory works on Mt P re the proposed new chair (2021) season.

Did note some delimbing of low dead branches around the base of Eyre.

Pics on the way out...

How’s the serenity (and the carrot cake)?

I might have to go for a day trip in the next couple of weeks to get an Eyre Burger fix. Hands up anyone else who’s going to do the same?

No sign of the infamous carrot cake @Ted Harper. But burgers, beers and coffees in full tilt:thumbs:. Always worth sitting out on the deck any time of year:). Or on the lawn in Summer. It’s green but dry - much more so than the past few Summers.
