hey there,
you dont exactly get paid in vegies, i got paid somethin like $10 an hour, and they let you take some vegies aswell at the end of the day, its an awsome deal, hard work though, all day in the sun. just rock over to the farm, go down to the shed at the bottom of the paddock, near the dam everyone swims in and ask whoevers there if they need any help.
thanks for the info sabu and steph, checked the website but they dont have the form there, like you said.
yeah i'm lovin living local, went climbing yesterday, lead an 18 which ended at bolts, then top roped the 21 next to it twice. then went and seconded a 19, then went back and cooled down top roping the 18 and 21 again. fore arems were feelin it, ha ha ha droolin yet? i'm never movin away, maybe for school and uni.
you do much climbin steph? goin in the states?
hope to c you two there,
gotta go!

Sadly the dam is choked with an green coloured algae bloom at the moment and looks rather uninhabitable.

Some topics are starting to read like an episode of Days of our (high school) Lives. Please use the PM functionality for social banter between friends to save us from the pubescent angst...

Mount Beckworth is only a half hour from Ballarat, nice cool granite that is not to gnarly. Hook up with someone from the WVCC.

Hi G,

did you ever get hold of Norm?

I was a student and climbing partner of Norm's back in the 70' and 80's.
My mother passed away in Canberra recently (at the age of 97) and this got me thinking about Norm and, as I live in Japan, my next visit to Oz might be my last chance to catch up with him.

If you have any means of contacting him, I would be delighted to hear from you.
