    Thetford C200 cassette

    Hi, Due to recent upgrade of original toilet I have for sale a Thetford C200 cassette (green with yellow cap & button....for ID purposes) Recently had a new blade seal fitted.....would make a great spare unit. New replacement unit $200 $50 plus postage. We are leaving here (home) on the 14th Nov for 4 months.....would like it gone by then, or you will have to wait for our return March/April.

    Toilet upgrade

    Hi, Considering upgrading my current Thetford C200 (plastic bowl) to a Thetford C263 (ceramic bowl) Suppose I'm looking for feedback from people who done this and also looking for feedback from people who already have a C263 fitted from new. I am aware that the exterior access door can be reused, but has to be turned 90 degrees (hinge down) which will leave some side panel modification work to be done.....would really like to see some 'after' photos. Interior wise I have been told a C263 will fit,....the unit is approx 60mm wider and 10kg's heavier which I can accept. Any feedback appreciated....thanking you. https://www.thetford-europe.com/au/product-category/toilets-au/cassette-toilets-toilets-au/

    Two Aliens

    Two aliens landed in the Arizona desert near a gas station that was closed for the night. They approached one of the gas pumps and the younger alien addressed it saying . . ."Greetings, Earthling . . . we come in peace . . . . Take us to your leader"The gas pump of course didn't respond.The younger alien became angry at the lack of response. The older alien said, “I’d calm down if I was you"The younger alien ignored the warning and repeated his greeting, again there was no response . . .Miffed at the pumps haughty attitude, he drew his ray gun and said gruffly "Greeting Earthling . . . We come in peace . . . Take us to your leader or I will fire"The older alien again warned his comrade saying, "You probably don't want to do that, I think it will make him mad""Rubbish", replied the cocky young alienHe aimed his weapon and opened fire . . . . There was a huge explosion.A massive fire-ball roared towards him and blew the younger alien off his feet and threw him in a burnt smoking mass about 200 yards away into a cactus patch.Half an hour passed . . . .When he finally regained consciousness, he refocused his three eyes, straightened his antenna, and looked dazedly at the older, wiser alien who was standing over him shaking his big green head . . . ."What a ferocious creature!" exclaimed the young fried alien . . ."He damn near killed me!" "How did you know he was so dangerous?"The older alien leaned over, placed a friendly feeler on his crispy friend and replied . . ."If there is one thing I've learned during my intergalactic travels, you never mess with a guy who can loop his manhood over his shoulder twice and then stick it in his ear!

    Hi all, Arrived here this afternoon, made to feel very welcome in this friendly town. There are thirty plus van and motor homes here, well set up area here at the showground. Lyn Astill is here in her motorhome, she is trying to get to Kilkivan if the planets align. A couple that Clive & Sandra Saunders meet on their recent WA trip John & Karen Siddle are here also in their TE, working on them to join, unfortunately due to geographic difficulties they won’t be able to attend Kilkivan this year. The organisers here have done a great job, barefoot bowls this arvo and dinner at the local bowls club, a local farm tour tomorrow, rodeo tomorrow night. Sunday local touring, entertainment at the pub on Sunday before the footy final and a camp oven dinner 🥘 The local area is very dry......maybe not as dry as some of the country Annie and I have seen in the last fortnight.....but believe me these people are doing it tough. Funds raised this weekend are being distributed to those in need by the local Lions Club. Photos of amazing trash, treasure, collectables, antiques and some really amazing rare stuff worth LOTS at this local property we visited this morning.....four shed’s of it and so much outside, lovely welcoming family.

    Karen & Paul are a lovely couple, with their local knowledge they will make your down time less frustrating. Just don’t get Paul to help Val with the spring replacements....he won’t know which end of the spanner to hold....sorry Paul!

    Chevrolet GMC owners

    Hi Jaap, Any ‘new’ vehicle is always going to be daunting, wether it be size, handling, braking......with time comes experience and confidence in your new ride! I have no qualms driving my GMC through peak hour city traffic.......but being truthful the turning circle is certainly greater than a 200 or similar....but with experience & familiarity with the vehicle it will become second nature! My vehicle is now in its third year of ownership (from new) I had a couple of conversion related issues (minor) fixed at the first service. Since then I’ve had two exhaust temp sensors ‘fail’ and they have been replaced under warranty....no dramas! Would I purchase another Chev/GMC yes in a heartbeat, BUT I do miss some of the creature comforts of Toyota, that sadly the yanks don’t fit as standard. Our vehicle now is approaching 70k in just over two years.....no unusual traits or funny things happening. But when you go bush in a jap vehicle, I maybe had a false sense of security knowing that you could by parts at the local chemist (almost) if you had a problem with the yank truck (regardless of brand) that feeling of security sadly isn’t there....for me anyway. Being a qualified mechanic, I can service and repair my vehicle with NO warranty implications, Not that would know what dealers are charging for servicing....that’s one cost (@retail) I don’t have to worry about. Can I respectfully suggest you during your research on your proposed purchase, consider getting quotes on insurance comprehensive and third party and other ON costs just to compare with what you are paying for your current vehicle.......remembering your really a jumping into another class of tow vehicle. Towing my Kedron, I REALLY am getting better overall fuel consumption figures than what I was getting in my 200....we are at Chinchilla at the moment (heading west) dash display showing 17.2 lts per 100k’s......around town figures are slightly higher than the 200. Go ahead....take the plunge, you won’t be sorry! Cheers

    I think Karen & Paul Slater are at Merreden, do you plan on seeing them?
  13. A Public servant dies in a car accident on his 40th birthday and finds himself at the Pearly Gates. A brass band is playing, the Angels are singing a beautiful hymn, there is a huge crowd cheering and shouting his name and absolutely everyone wants to shake his hand. Just when he thinks things can't possibly get any better, Saint Peter himself runs over, apologises for not greeting him personally at the Pearly Gates, shakes his hand and says 'Congratulations son, we've been waiting a long time for you. Totally confused and a little embarrassed, the Public servant sheepishly looks at Saint Peter and says 'Saint Peter, I tried to lead a God-fearing life, I loved my family, I tried to obey the 10 Commandments, but congratulations for what? I honestly don't remember doing anything really special when I was alive.' 'Congratulations for what?' says Saint Peter, totally amazed at the man's modesty. 'We're celebrating the fact that you lived to be 160 years old! God himself wants to see you!' The Public servant is awe-struck and can only look at Saint Peter with his mouth agape. When he regains his power of speech, he looks up at Saint Peter and says, 'Saint Peter, I lived my life in the eternal hope that when I died I would be judged by God and be found to be worthy, but I only lived to be forty.' 'That's simply impossible son,' says Saint Peter. 'We've added up your time sheets......'
