Ok crap throwing tolerance exceeded, take a break from it or I will ban offenders from the thread/s. Pull your collective heads in.
I think you can take your geenie with you.
Just remember to take her home in her bottle.
Send the virtual spliffy around dude
Looks to me the (once) preferred water cooled didgeridoo....
aka V8 they chew the juice but you get there quicker.
Here it is Gentle-people.
NSW NPWS info on where camping in not permitted on the MR (not just in the lake catchments)
So how did you find that pdf?
I had a good look and search and I knew what I was looking for.
Google and sage search words
It should be a direct link on their KNP page imo
I was using the search function within NSW Parks website shoulda known to use a completely random search engine from the USA in lieu of local product.
What were you thinking ---- logic ----- NPWS ---- Utopia!
I suspect that info is not exactly correct. There are some nice looking (summer) camp sites just down from the outlet of Lake Albina and Club Lake. They are technically not in the catchment, but I believe they are still no-go. The exclusion zone is more than the strict catchment. Why do I think this? Where does this info come from? Huh, ask NPWS
Is that old mate @PiniPowPow in the brochure?
haha yep that is me camping with another woman!
famous tent that now belongs to @Ozgirl
Haha - Actually it is supposed to be @sara777
But if possession is 9/10th of the law them my parents own it!
(@sara777 will try and remember to bring it home this weekend!)
So is the use of the stove in the grass paddock in line with Parks policy, WHS and all the other things related to hot things burnable stuff and fires?
What happens next Pini? Is this the beginings of Pini junior?
Since this is the etiquette thread i hope you gave her a cuddle when you were done rather than crack open a tinny.
Haha, always have been a gentleman.
Its also on a big light board in Jindy NPWS and the mrs always give me shit about it, "there you are camping with another woman"
Well as long as you're only being camp with her, where's the problem?!
A BC handbag, so to speak.
This came up in my Facebook feed
LEAVE NO TRACE ETHICS – BACKCOUNTRY SNOWSPORTS
1. Plan Ahead and Prepare
Practice Safety First.
Know where you are going.
Know your own and your group’s limits, and minimize risks.
2. Travel on Durable Surfaces
Stay on deep snow cover whenever possible.
3. Dispose of Waste Properly
Pack It In, Pack It Out.
4. Leave What You Find
Leave only tracks.
5. Minimize Campfire and Hut Impacts
Use a lightweight stove for cooking and enjoy a lantern or headlamp for light.
Leave huts and cabins in better shape than how you found them.
6. Respect Wildlife
Observe wildlife from a distance.
Never feed wildlife or leave food behind to be eaten.
If you choose to bring your dog keep it under control and do not let it harass
7. Be Considerate of Others
Respect landowners, both public and private.
Respect other skiers/riders and all other users.
When ascending trails, keep clear and yield to downhill traffic. When
descending always stay in control, go one at a time, and slow down near
Respect designated areas, signs, and wildlife
Probably been seen before, but worth posting again:
If I choose to access the backcountry by mechanized means, I will do so in a respectful fashion, obeying all rules and regulations, and driving with care when around foot travelers such as snowshoers, snowboarders and skiers.
I will respect designated areas, trail use signs, and established ski tracks. When traveling on foot or snowshoe, I will not damage existing ski trails that backcountry skiers have created and are using.
When stopping, I will not block the trail.
I will not disturb wildlife and will avoid areas posted for their protection or feeding.
I will not litter, and I will pack out everything I packed in, including pet results.
I will adjust my backcountry skiing or riding pace and level of risk to that which my whole party is comfortable with.
I will not encourage or push others to take risks they are not comfortable with.
I realize that my destination and travel speed are determined by my equipment, ability, terrain, weather, and traffic on the trail, and will plan accordingly.
In case of an emergency, I will volunteer assistance. I will always carry basic emergency equipment such as a light source, shovel, and first aid supplies.
I will not interfere with or harass other recreationists involved in legal/normal activities. I recognize that people judge all other winter recreationists by my actions.
I will promote a friendly and positive attitude while in the backcountry. I will smile and greet others on the trail, offer information about conditions, and offer assistance if necessary.
1A/// I will always carry a chainsaw into areas that are frequented with stands of timber and will be prepared to cut any fallen trees across the access trails on which I drive and I will not rely on others/or management providers to rescue members of my party..and I will provide assistance to anybody that is having difficulties.
NoteXXX Team Bears are still seeing folk venturing in to West Kiewa without a saw!!!!!
On topic here , few of you may have read this.
From Backcountry mag fb page...
we like that no4....Leave only tracks???Bears good at creating tracks???
leave no trace is just old school say Team Bears.....
Wife with etiquette!
Booooooooo and Thumbs Down the the group on Razorback on the weekend that took a group shit just off the track near twin knobs and left toilet paper strewn about the place.
Parks got a loo at trail head near old Diamintina Hut????
Maybe if Parks Vic were more proactive they might have constructed one and maybe just maybe there would be less turds on the "Iconic Razorback Walk"
Federation Hut has the super dunny complex but I cannot remember anything on the Hotham Rd..
Even KNP has a dunny complex on its less than Iconic Walk located at Rawsons Pass...
So wifey is doing her usual morning walk to Hornes Point at Mt Piddington this morning when she comes across a tent at the end and next to it a bare arse dropping a turd into the middle of the fire trail!
She told the owner of the turd that she thought he was an effing turd!
Tag and bag!
And there is a perfectly good toilet out there.
A pity she wasn't on a Duely with a boot out.
I can't believe that snowshoers win at Men of the Backcountry
Not even close, I still see two layers on one of those pretenders. Kossies for Kosi, did they seriously do as they were going too, I think not, they don't look blue enough. Irresponsible message being sent.
is that Kosy!!
Bears say NSW is turning into some kinda circus act!!
and whats with the pretend summit cairn...looks like its held together with concrete...
oh the tourists of the Main Range!!!
its a wonder Black Pete doesnot come down from Okeefes Hut and go them all....
They got nothing on your local Paddlepop lion UB
yep too many wankers getting around.....still much fallen timber to deal with on tracks erhaps they could strip to their undies after cutting a few logs of track and post it on forum....
Pretty sure all of us (shirtless wankers) would survive without a chainsaw wielding, teddy bear talking bigot thinking nobody could enter the mountains unless he was clearing tracks.
Fkn fun police.
seems to be attitude problem from some folk in Main Range....that drive to trail heads like Guthega Power Station/Perisher or Thredbo/DHG Selwyn Ski Resort or Kiandra put on skis or snow shoes and take off for their fun packed adventure...
May be some need to "earn them turns"....
also if snow shoe party had come at Kosy via Hannels Spur then whole forum would be totally amazed and they could wear those undies while taking selfies without criticism....
DJM you are quite welcome to get off your backside and do some work if u want...
still some obstacles requiring attention for the hardy viccos coming up Bungelow Spur...
poor Bears ran out of Chain/Bar oil but managed a decent chop till the ruin...
bad etiquette to tackle Kosy for undie selfies from tourist routes or chairlift???
DJM better not to pose unless u have done something meaningful????
Steve, you are clueless about what others are doing. These blokes (I'm not associated with them in any way) were raising $100,000 for beyondblue to help with youth depression and anxiety. Brilliant and worthy cause. Do you have any idea of the impact these types of groups are having?
Instead of calling them wankers and asking people to "Earn their turns", wake the fck up and see it for what it is.
I don't sit across the border and take mindless potshots at anyone skiing in Victoria and question their passion for the backcountry and commitment to what they love. I have absolutely zero guilt for skiing the backcountry.
If you were committed to the environment you'd sell all the 2 stroke gear and use a fkn hand saw and axe you sftcok.
We were so poor we had to pick at the wood with our fingernails.
We didn't even have fingernails.
I dream't of using something as tough as fingernails. The Knights who say Ni forced me to use a herring.
what type of Herring ?
An Araucanian herring
An erubescent herring
Maybe it would be a red herring?
