  1. London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    Thanks for answering all my questions. You seriously got me thinking about this trip. If it happens then it won't be for a coupe of years unfortunately. I need to save hard, but what a trip it will be!! I'll give Chook and roblukin a nudge when the time gets close. Thanks! Tom
  2. London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    Thanks! I've decided that the road trip will start from Perth, head out to Lake Lefroy, then Kingston, 13th beach and Sandy Point then do it all in reverse. I'll be there as soon as I save the monies. I've driven the coastal road from Melbourne to Adelaide in 2009 and must have past Kingston without realizing it was a buggy spot. Shame, as I had my Blade 4.9 with me. Very picturesque route! Would love to do it again. Something to save for. Can't find Port Douglas in SA. DId you mean QL ? Open question to all. ( don't want to keep bothering you Mez ) When is best time of year for buggy action both in WA and SA ?
  3. It’s not my problem. Worrying trend.

    You can drown in a pool full of people as its very hard to recognize someone in trouble. I nearly drowned in Bali back in 97. Rip tide dragged me out and I got pummeled my huge crashing waves, again and again and again. Came up gasping for air each time. My lungs ached as I filled them to capacity before the next wave sent my down deep. The beach was crowed with Aussie holiday makers that day, yet I was dying. I remember waving to this guy for help. He was standing at the shore holding the hand of his young son. They were pointing directly at me but did nothing. They slowly turned and walked away. One of the most lonely experiences of my life. I don't blame them. I suspect that they never actually saw me against the monster surf, or simply did not recognize the signs. I still often think about that day. My own fault for swimming when the red flags were flying I guess. Messing about on the water is far riskier than people give it credit. This guy has had a wake up call. The water may be busy with kitesurfers, but when the shit hits the fan, you'd do well to assume that you're on your own or you'll waste valuable time. Be prepared.
  4. London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    Great price! I decided a few years back that if I ever have to fly long haul again, that I'd do it in either business or first class, even if that means taking some years to save the cash. My last return trip from Australia had me sitting next to the kitchen galley at the back of the plane for 14hrs. I vowed never to travel that way again. I'm excited about the possibility of a road trip from Perth to Melbourne. I'd stop off at Lake Lefroy on my way. Other than Lefroy, where else in Australia is epic buggy action to be had ?
  5. London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    I envy you. I wish I could have slept through it, unfortunately I've never been able to get comfortable in economy. Hopefully someone will record the return leg in first class so I can gently fall asleep while watching.

    Incredible place, great video!
  7. London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    That trip is on my very short bucket list. It may take some years or it may not but either way I'll be sure to let you guys know. The non-stop flight makes it much more doable.
  8. London to Perth ** Non Stop! **

    That's messed up. Maybe they use smaller planes for internal flights and thus space comes at a premium. The idea that I can fly direct to Perth from London is a game changer. I've always wanted to take the buggy down under without all the hassle, and risk losing my stuff along the way.
  9. I must be living in a cave. I had no idea this was possible. Warning, the video is over 17 hours long
  10. Hottest Sexy Female Kiters! (Pt2)

    Nice ass. I bet he works out. She flew the kite right at him and he still can't catch it.
  11. Grandfathers Axe

    Here in the UK we'd call your buggy, Triggers Broom.
  12. Louth Bay Drone chasing GT Buggies

    The camera guy has a good eye. Quick reactions, he did his best to keep you both nicely framed. Some good riding there and amazing location. Maybe its my age, but the only thing I'd change in this video is to insert the theme tune to Miami Vice from 1:20 onwards.
  13. Yet another windy day...

    Could be worse. You could have no wind at all with snow and temps of -10c.
  14. Greenland Snowkite Crossing

    I once bought an 8.5m Blade II from a woman who used it to cross the Greenland ice sheet. It seems to be a regular thing now. Of course, this is how Indians came to be in North America. They crossed the Bering Strait during the last ice age using home made buggies on skis which they called sleds. The women were responsible for weaving the Ripstop and Dyneema line sets. True story.
