I believe 'belay bitch' is the correct term. Never leave for the mountain without one!

Gas mask for the Gums long-drop.
Dunlop Volleys for the retro climbs.
Ear plugs for the ridiculously loud belches emitted by university groups at 1 in the morning.
Combination lock safe to protect my ancient and rare 1st edition Arapiles Selected Climbs.

Does anyone understand why parks wouldn't want organised groups camping at the pines due to "lack of water"?

Also, I heard a rumour that campfires were going to be banned completely because people keep taking wood from the state forest.

Because parks are much easier to manage if no one goes there.

True but in Espanglish you use the definite article differently than in eng-rish so that doesn't mean you translate it directly.

Thats interesting. There is a point where the rules are going to get broken. If there was a total fire ban year round and any of you were camped there on a rainy winters night would you light a fire? I reckon I would.

Why don't the parks sell some wood out of the back of the ute when they come around to hasssle for camp fees. Then double whammy they get to sting you twice! The whole function of the parks service is to revenue raise and this would fill there brief perfectly.

Thats a shame if such a rumour is true, especially seeing as its SO easy to jump across to the farmland and raid a fallen tree!! Nothing beats a fire in winter.

I would have actually died the first time I went if we didn't have a fire. I also wouldn't have experienced the joy of the "Jamie catching on fire covered with Shellite" incident without a fire. Good times.
