15cm overnight in NSW. We needed it after the rain this week.
All packed ready to go tommorow. NT I wish I was 47. I'm plus 11 years on top of you. Feel like 18 in the head but the body is long past that. Charge hard as you only live one.Well, as quick as that trip came just as quick it goes. Sitting in the airport lounge at QT, heading Melbourne and then late tonight Darwin.
Great fun as usual, challenging conditions and learned a lot about my current quiver and myself as a rider on what I like, where I’m comfortable and future needs and more importantly don’t needs. Probably took a trip like this to work out I’m 47 and not 27 LOL.
Great place NZ South Island, very lucky for those that live here and thanks for sharing it with the rest of us.
Now to look towards Japan I think Feb/Mar. Only way in atm I believe may be booking through an agent/tour so will keep an eye on that but no doubt work will want its pound of flesh between Monday and then.
For those with trips upcoming, enjoy and hopefully everything works out, it’s much more stressful travelling now days than it was 3 or 4 years ago. To the point where that tickle in the throat late in the trip can cost you another $5k and delay your trip home.
@JDA sorry about your trip man, I hope things work out and when you do get on the mountain the weather gods are kind.
After 6 days of drinking Wanaka Ale someone finally put me onto the Hazy Pale Ale, much better.
Looks suspect to me too. The grammar is dodgy in a couple of places, and the part about two-factor encryption keys doesn't make sense (I work in tech)Hey all, I've got someone interested in a board I'm looking to move on who has contacted me about using StarTrack Delivery Services see screen grabs below. Has anyone used this and does it seem legit, I'm always overly cautious with things like this so might be jumping at shadows so just seeing if anyone can shed some light.
Looks a bit scammy M'cScamface to me, think I'll just stick with the PayPal money in account or board doesn't leave approach.
The Korua Pocket Rocket. It's probably more of a board for someone with easy access to the mountain I think, for me doing air-travel all the time I can't really see it being part of 2 boards I'd take anywhere, maybe Japan, Niseko. I really enjoyed the Dada this last trip as a fun board so seeing what interest there is in the Korua as a new un-used board.Looks suspect to me too. The grammar is dodgy in a couple of places, and the part about two-factor encryption keys doesn't make sense (I work in tech)
The branding and terms and conditions also don't match the real website for startrack courier
But Startrack don't have the best reputation so it could be genuine even taking into account the above.
I would say if you have the slightest doubt, give it a pass.
What board are you selling btw?
Yeah there wasn't a link and just a screen grab. Interesting he contacted me through whatsapp, I couldn't find the page online which made me a bit suspicousGuys if the domain name in the browser is legit, e.g. auspost.com.au then it’s not a phishing site.
If you’ve been sent a link in an email or something else, check it goes to the same legit domain name by hovering over it.
