    totes agree!

    its good for your skin! Mum would freak when i, say shower Monday morning and don't shower til Tuesday night.

    however since i became incapacitated and she has to assist me with showers - suddenly she suggests every second day is appropriate LOL

    For a hundred bucks or a few cartons of Corona I’ll bestow “local status” on any forumites looking to have all “the rights” associated with the local title....

    You’ll get:

    * permission to ignore the parking dudes at PV car park each morning
    * rights to deride any “non local” at your own discretion
    * priority at Woolworths
    * full complaining rights on any topic you wish

    Plus a host of other benefits.

    Get in quick...... season ends early October !

    I read once that long cock is due to a abundance of Omega 3 in the diet. Trout, trout, trout!!!
    Meat and 3 veg might be good for health, but not for long cock. LOL

    Complete rubbish, you are all wrong and need to do some research! Look at this quote from my own 3 seconds of expert research I did on the 'net "you are wrong you are wrong you are wrong". See? You should believe me now or I'll get the shits and tell you even more vehemently and incoherently who wrong you are!

    My local friends don't talk about being locals. And they treat me almost like a normal person. But from somewhere else.

    Hahaha

    I like the place, more so when the tourists are not there, which is ironic really.

    Much the same as most tourists. Not just here but in most places.

    I can never get my head around the people who want to stop other people exactly the same as them visiting their favourite spot.

    Combination of everything.
    Less people in the onsite caravans.
    Less people in the Cabins
    Way less tents in the unpowered sites .
    The only sites that seem normal are the powered sites for caravans.

    Why are so many people camping illegally then? Literally too tight to pay for an unpowered tent site?

    Nah ...the claypits are a scene. Imagine Byron folk hanging in Jindy...
    The locations of these spots is shared on the socials...
    Attracts like minded people.

    Caravan parks have rules and regulations and stuff.

    Not sure they were actually camping illegally. But, some. Especially when they were not getting any work. At the beginning of the season the lifties were getting 2 days work a week. That doesn't pay the rent. And some instructors are in the same situation.
    To some extent. But not completely.

    And now people who want to have a few drinks then a sleep in their car are screwed.

    unpowered sites on the weekend at the caravan park still come out at $50 odd dollars for a single person.

    The nat parks is a good option but a lot of it is booked out.
