Nice "truck"! I love the options you mates have when it comes to your rides down there. I am a fan of the Ford Ranger and would sell an organ for one of yours with the turbo diesels and 6 speed. We don`t even have that option up here and my little guy is so underpowered with a 3.0L gas engine.

Thanks for the wanking material.....
It is a bunch of bull that us auto makers don't produce more diesels. If they would make them people would buy them.

Haha yeah I get the stealth comment a lot.
There really is a fair bit of good terrain out there, next year Im going to camp out there to save a few hours of skinning in the morning. It would be great to wake up and use your energy riding rather than just getting there.

The resorts out here are pretty damn flat, being in a national park they are very restricted in the area that they can use and I can understand the impact it would have if every dickhead were able to access these areas. I was quite disappointed to find numerous cigarette butts on carruthers peak, smokers seem to think butts are acceptable litter for some reason.

ETM Its just a box really. It has one permanent bed across ways and another removable one. Its big enough so that you dont feel claustrophobic inside it and also as aerodynamic as I could make it whilst still fitting my 6'3" across ways.
The gas cooker and stuff I just keep under the bed in a storage area. Ill take some pics when all my gear is cleaned out.

It cost me about $3000 to build and saved me over $4000 in accom this season. It costs me 3litres/100klm in fuel (0.79 gallons/100 miles) compared to when its not on and it just slides in, 2 man job, 4 bolts hold it down to the chassis. Takes about 20 mins to load/unload.
