RE: [BackpackGearTest] Walkabout - Andrew
Sounds great! Funny, when I hear the word "walkabout" all I can think of is "Crocodile Dundee"! If you do encounter crocodiles, I hope that you have a big knife <g>!
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

Dear Group<br><br>With this email, I have gone walkabout until July 25, 2005. I will be <br>flying out in the next 24 hours for the Alice and will be enroute to <br>Redbank Gorge on Sunday for 16 days of walking from Redbank Gorge via Mt <br>Sonder and many more gorges and waterholes back to the Alice. We (a party <br>of six) will be walking the Larapinta Trail in the West MacDonnell Ranger. <br>This will be followed by a few days R&R in Darwin where hopefully the crocs <br>play nice. For those interested you can find some information on the <br>Larapinta Trail at <http://www.john.chapman.name/nt-lara.html> and <br><http://snipurl.com/fyfc>.<br><br>During my absent Shane has very kindly agreed to take on my jobs as both <br>List Moderator and Senior Edit Moderator (did I mention that one Shane? <br>:-)). Please work with Shane and treat him kindly. He is wearing many hats <br>at the moment.<br><br>For my American cousins, I wish you a very safe and special July 4th
