From the picture I thought the first step was cutting the hatch for the escape tunnel. http://www.mapleleafup.net/forums/at...chmentid=40542

And if you lived in the northern hemisphere it would be a really long deep tunnel.

Cheers Phil

PS what is the simple way to copy or quote a photo already used in a thread?

Default Costly

I had to buy my dearest a new car to get to Corowa.

In fact I'm here now, sitting in the Corowa McDonald's drinking a coffee and using the free wireless.

How are you buying your ticket of leave this year? I have to tidy up around the yard and get stuck into the landscaping.

Don't start your run too early, Robert - these points, like Blitz, Jeep or any MV points have a short shelf life.

I have the opposite problem, spending 6 days a week in Corowa I want Brownie Points so I can stay home.
River is nice and high, hope it stays that way.
Rich.

This looks like you've built an excellent brown snake habitat. The greenies would be proud of you.
