    Grumpy old buggers thread

    My Brother and Sister in Law live in Darwin - they went out and found some firewood and lit a fire in their fire pit and sat around it all rugged up - poor things, it only got to 24 and dropped to 18 overnight but not nearly as cold as Brissy - hope you guys up there are keeping warm.

    Loved a yarn a few years ago re kids refusing to go to school swimming lesson as it was just 25 degrees in Darwin.

    Just shouted some homeless people a hot chocolate. They are living in a car down to about 5 degrees over night. Mind you I have no issue swagging it above the snow line this time of year in the mountains. Usually with no fire so I do not smell to much sneaking about chasing my choice of tucker
    Cold is relative to you

    Cold is anything below 20, cool is 20~25, pleasant 25~35, warm 35~40, starting to get hot 40~45, it's bloody hot aye, temperatures above 45.

    That's a bit wussy. When I lived in Bangkok the minimum temperature there was always 3-4 higher than the maximum in Brisbane. I used to pack extra warm clothes to come back, because it was noticeably cooler. I think I would be quite comfy in Darwin.

    Dont forget they already have your details stored online from when you applied for the pass.
    You can't approach the border unless you already have the pass from online. There are signs warning people without passes to pull off into a waiting area.

    BLOODY HELL!


    Another freaky Q. innovation with cops to do it for you as well. I bet the vehicles parked up in said area couldn't get traction to drive away.
