Paul said he will have Lunch for us, is there is something particular we want to do let us know. He had mentioned some ideas like a BBQ or some BBQ chooks. I can let Paul know after this weekend.

Was a lot easier the 2nd time round I reckon ... and Jacob is such a cool and interesting person to talk and listen too (for a long hair regener that is Smiling ... Jokes) I reckon Michael's has a good idea re getting Jacob in for another plant id workshop at Knapsack.

I wanna do another day maybe near the creek crossings next time, bit like a cave in there with the lantana. I'll ask my Filo brothers to come give us a hand next time ... might have to put some mud guards on though.

Thanks all for another good day's work!

The public car park is always attracting rubbish - From what I have picked up, I reckon about half is from MTB riders who should know a lot better (V cans, GU, etc), the other half is from people who just drive in and park. It's this rubbish you really have to be careful with as I've encountered used needles, nappies, broken glass, condoms, bottles/cans, food wrappers etc.

However, it is worth cleaning up - as rubbish attracts more rubbish!
