G'day

Postby bushcamper » Thu Aug 10, 2006 12:33 am

G'day everyone, my name's Keith, I'm self employed and build, repair and restore furniture. Moved to Gladstone Qld in 79 from Sydney after some travelling for a few years with my wife Sandra, raised three fantastic daughters (all doing well and moved out for the moment :~))

Been checking in here for a while, great site, have picked up some useful tips and info and help out if I can. Don't have much to say usually (not the worlds fastest on the keyboard), I guess a cure for that might be to post more just for the typing practise.

Have always loved camping, fishing, bow hunting, photography and 4wding and now it's back to the two of us we're looking forward to getting out there more often.

Our current vehicle is a GQ 4.2td patrol which I think is our seventh 4x4.We like a bit of comfort these days and prefer bush camping as the name implies. We tow a camper trailer when we can and use a touring tent when we can't, either way we're usually self sufficient

Looking forward to getting more involved

Cheers,

Keith

Welcome Keith,

Good to know someone is reading our ranting and raving.

In regard to the AV's you'll need to find a host site such as photobucket.

Cheers ...

Thanks for the welcome.

Scol, if you click Profile at the top of the page and then go down to where you add an AV it says this:

"Displays a small graphic image below your details in posts. Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width can be no greater than 80 pixels, the height no greater than 80 pixels, and the file size no more than 0 KB"

I've been using Photobucket for a few years and added AVs in other forums but if I take the file size down to 1 or 2 KB the picture is pretty ugly (and it won't except a file of 1.5KB)

:?

Kramer, might see you round the tracks someday.

Welcome :armsup

And there isn't a actuall limit on size i think, for sum reason it comes up sayin 0kb though :shock: . Just make one 80x80 and it should be sweet.

Here's one to test if you want - Image

I becmae confused when I first read it to so you're in good company. Kramer's thread has some good info but if you're a photobucket user you should be ok.

My AV is about 25kb's and is hosted on Photobucket.

Cheers ...

Thanks guys, I was trying to upload the URL which wouldn't work, linking to an ofsite URL did the trick.

Now I'll have to find a more interesting AV

Yes, I know what you mean, never seem to find enough time for the things that matter.

When ever I start thinking about selling the canoe I flick through some of the photos of fun times we've had with it, so far been able to resist the temptation.

This was the best trip so far. Two weeks on the Mitchel River Nth Qld. No radio, TV or contact with anyone except the six of us for 12days.

Wow the Mitchel :grin: I would have had a couple of guns in my canoe! Crocs are a little too close when you are in a canoe ::() Its not even made from aluminium!

The only reason I sold it was becuase I had a good fofer for it. I semi regret it but if noone wants to go out then it's just sitting gathering dust which I reckon is sad for such a good canoe. I still have my kayak tho'! Spent many weeks in the upper reaches of the Nepean, Colo and ... other rivers I cant remember ... :?#
