Cheers Spencer, may look at a set-up like that as it will come in handy until I can drum up the interest in DS here.

Always get a killer SunSet after a big wind system here.....

Sounds pretty bad Alex. Not as bad as the big one but still big destruction Amazing pic on ABC of the dust cloud coming off the cliffs.

I think there is a direct relationship to shakey places and good DS

Hi Alex, was there a lot of damage this time? Hope you weren't in the hills DSing? I could imagine that could throw you of course a bit!
Have a safe Xmas.

yeah, but being a Friday, everyone is at work. Gives me one day a week to work with cuz I work Saturdays. Very frustrating All my records have been on public holidays, would hate to think how many wasted opportunities there have been. THis is one of the main reasons I want to go to the US, there will be heaps of DS crazy people with available time

Went up the Alps to try a new site, and you will see from the vid what happened...
