  1. Murphy in the shadows Murphy was walking home late at night and sees a woman in the shadows. 'Thirty euros,' she whispers. Murphy had never been with a hooker before, but decides what the hell, it's only thirty euros. So they hid in the bushes. They're going 'at it' for a minute when all of a sudden a light flashes on them. It is the Garda. 'What's going on here, people?' asks the cop. 'I'm making love to me wife,' Paddy answers sounding annoyed. 'Oh, I'm sorry,' says the cop, 'I didn't know.' 'Well, neidder did I, til ya shined that light in her face!'

  3. Hi Newby , we have a 2008 Top Ender an east west bed set up with the combo ensuite at the front of the van . Very happy with this . Also have air bag suspension . One of the first ones Kedron provided. Actually this one was made before they started to offer them . The van was made for a couple in Brisbane we bought it second hand in 2010 and have never regretted it . John

  4. A very descriptive and interesting trip report. We have driven through Inglewood many times with and without van, and always stop for a cuppa and leg-stretch, but never had the time or need to stay over. The bakery there has good pies. Next time we go that way will plan a stop-over.

  5. Our Top Ender and Silverado are definitely on the market and the TE will not be used until sold. The Top Ender is a 19ft 6" twin bed (single) model with all the necessary additions such as a front loader washing machine (two years old) and diesel heater. The Silverado is a 2011 2500 HD LTZ in great condition with just over 200,000 km on the clock. It is fitted out with a canopy, big drawers, a third battery and space for two 40 L fridges on a slide. Throughout its life the van has been kept under cover when not in use. Van $59,950 or near offer. Silverado $82,950. Combined $142,000. Colin 0408 235 273

  6. A couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and inform the other if there is sex after death. Their biggest fear was that there was no after-life at all. After a long life together, the husband was the first to die. True to his word, he made the first contact: "Julie ..... Julie" "Is that you, Bob?" "Yes, I've come back like we agreed." "That's wonderful! What's it like?" "Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it's off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you'd be proud - lots of greens). Another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it's back to the golf course again. Then it's more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again". "Oh, Bob! Are you in Heaven?" "No -- I'm a rabbit somewhere near Mildura.”

  7. MATHEMATICS This comes from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 years’ experience. It has an indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud. This is a strictly mathematical viewpoint... and it goes like this: What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life? Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions: If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 Then: H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 =98% And K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 =96% But, A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 =100% And, B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 =103% And, look how far ass kissing will take you. A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 =118% So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that while Hard-work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there. It’s the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top. Now you know why Politicians are where they are!

  8. Hello All. I have a couple of questions for owners here. I am looking at a second hand Top Ender TE3, built in December 2015. It is unique in that it was a 16' x 7' tandem axle, with East/east bed, combo shower/toilet, 2kg washing machine & a huge Enerdrive lithium system. This is a incredible build van & will suit my 200 series land cruiser with aplomb & ease of towing. It has KRS with independant air bag suspension, if fact a ton of goodies. & so to my question. Does anyone here have a east west bed & are they very happy with that configuration. Thanks so much in advance,

  13. I love the Red Centre and have enjoyed many trips there over the years. And we once worked at Utopia Station, out along the Sandover Hwy, but that’s another story for another time. in years to come you will be able to laugh about all this, Tony and Annie. But for the time being you at least have the comfort of the van and a car to get around. Good luck with getting the transmission rebuilt. In the meantime, there is a magic restaurant across in East side, which locals know and love. Casa Nostra. Book before going as it’s very popular with locals.

  14. Just had some excellent service from two companies in Perth , both at the caravan park so mobile. 1: Terrsat Pty Ltd ( Mile) repaired our Auto sat which was not behaving as it should have, basically some worn parts after 10 years and serviced the motor like new now . 2 Nexus 1 Caravan Plumbing and gas (Steve ) repaired and serviced the Suburban Hot Water system . I can recommend both guys, both professionals in there field AND arrived at the caravan park on time . No connection to either just recommend them John

  16. Hi, Where have Tony & Annie Heat been? Go and make a cuppa......it’s a long story! Three weeks ago we were towed into Alice Springs. We were traveling on The Plenty Hwy between Tobermory & Jervois Station when the truck started play up (as in transmission problems). We were able to reach Jervois Station, and with the generous assistance of the property manager able to make contact with the NRMA/AANT. A tow was quickly and painlessly organised thanks to our Premium Roadside Assist Membership. Due to geographical distance the towie turned up the next morning at 8ish the truck was unceremoniously loaded onto the tilt tray truck and the van hitched up to the back of the tow truck. We arrived in Alice on the Saturday of the Finke Race,it was bedlam there were cars, trucks, trailers & lots of people everywhere. All the caravan parks were full and if you could get a spot in a CP the cheeky buggers were asking and getting $90pn, anyway it was suggeasted we try the Alice show ground (Blatherskite Park). On arrival we were greeted by an attentive attendant who was obliging and compassionate in our dilemma. She guided us to a ‘camping’ spot the van unhitched and the truck off loaded. Contact was made with Performax’s suggested repairer here in Alice, it was agreed that I take our ‘sick’ truck to his workshop the following Tuesday as Monday was a public holiday. I also found out that another repairer (Heath Lawson from Maroochydore) I knew was in Alice competing in the Finke Race, I was able to speak with Heath on the Sunday. On the Tuesday, I was able to ‘limp’ the truck to the suggested repairer ‘Ben’, he hooked up his laptop carried out many tests on the vehicles electronics and came up with a failed TCM (transmission control module) and testing results also indicated that the transmission was in a ‘locked state’. Heath turned up at the workshop, with prior agreement from Ben which I appreciated, he also connected his diagnostics equipment and came up with the same diagnosis as Ben. Heath indicated at that time he would be prepared to rebuild my transmission here in Alice before he went back to Maroochydore, I was excited at this prospect as I have full confidence in Heath’s work as he works pretty well exclusively on GM and Allison transmissions. He said he had a new TCM in his workshop at Maroochydore, this was despatched to Alice. Heath in the mean time would continue his travels to Darwin and await fitment of the new TCM, potentially returning to Alice when the new TCM was fitted. The new TCM arrived (after 10 days👎).......this was fitted and required programming to my vehicles unique VIN. (vehicle identification number). Rarely in my life do things go to plan, after a period it was established that the tuning module supplied with the new TCM was not compatible with my vehicle model. So the TCM and tuning module were removed. Since the fiasco with the TCM install both Darwin & Alice have gone into COVID lockdown and Heath is unable to return to Alice. (Shit happens) The truck is still in the workshop, with no TCM and a buggered transmission STILL fitted to the truck. The transmission was supposed to be removed last Tuesday, but because of Covid that didn’t eventuate. Heath’s return to Alice is definitely not going to happen......his office girl is desperate for his return to Maroochydore. That will be interesting with border closures and quarantining. And Ben is not answering his phone, again because of frigging Covid! Thinking now.....the transmission will have to go Adelaide to be rebuilt, can really see us still being here in Alice Springs for at least another three weeks. I have hired a little Mitsubishi Mirage to get around in, it has more rattles than a millionaires baby & 200k on the clock.....but it starts & runs. We have been able to do some touristy things around Alice, it really is a lovely area. I’m sure we will do more exploring before the truck is finally finished. Here were we are at the Showground, part of the Macdonnell Ranges is only a k away, with beaut views of the Pyndan (red soil & rocks) covered in spinifex constantly changing vistas as the sun moves throughout the day, it is special! It is about 12 years since I was in Alice last, the town is cleaner/tidier than I remember & ‘the locals’ have also appear to have a better appearance and outlook. We have not seen/witnessed any drinking seasons ‘in the Todd’ or other areas which is great for them and the community generally! Hoping I haven’t bored you too much with this long screed, here are a few photos of the past few weeks Stay safe there are idiots out there!

  19. My word you get yourself into pickles Mr Heat. Poor Annie must be tearing her hair out. I would say that about you but from last I remember it was already gone. Hope all works out soon. We are sitting in Katherine awaiting WA to open without isolation so we can cross the border and head for home.

  24. Perks of reaching 60 or being over 70 and heading towards 80! 1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you. 2 In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first. 3. No one expects you to run--anywhere. 4. People call at 8 PM and ask, "Did I wake you?" 5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac. 6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way. 7. Things you buy now won't wear out. 8. You can eat supper at 5 PM . 9. You can live without sex but not your glasses. 10.Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size. 11. You can't remember who sent you this list. 12. And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.

  25. I saw my mate who is a builder coming down a ladder with a chimney pot on his shoulder, he looked like he wasn't well so I said to him "you don't look well pal I hope it's not covid ." "I'm coming down with the flue " he replied. ***************************** I used to know a baker who had red hair. He was a ginger bread man... **************************** What do you call a herd of sheep tumbling down a hill? A Lambslide.. ***************************** The other day, I rang the Speaking Clock. It said, “What's the matter, can't you afford a watch? Are you too lazy to lift your arm up, you idiot?“ It was Greenwich Mean Time.

  27. For those of us travelling and keen to get their vaccinations while on the road, I have successfully used the below link. It is an interactive website which allows you to enter some basic information on eligibility first then to find a site near you, or at a specific location where you can get your jab. https://covid-vaccine.healthdirect.gov.au/eligibility Before there are any arguments on the merits of the vaccination, I am not advocating whether you should or should not be vaccinated. The information is purely for those who want to use it. I do have a view about vaccinations but this is not the place for that debate.

  28. We are now at Hay, NSW. We are going to the RSL for dinner (they have great Chinese food!) and camping down on the Murrumbidgee just on the outskirts of town. Our camp site has its own QR code to check in! Most spots seem to have one, sited on a little white pole. Before leaving home I downloaded every state’s QR code and have them ready as we cross borders. A lass at the Balranald supermarket said this morning that she didn’t think NSW was using QR codes …. Moral of that story is not to take advice on QR code readers from checkout staff. The cafe certainly required it to checked in.
