Posted:Hi all,

Hope you're all having a great solstice (shortest day here, longest day for those who live in the other hemisphere). Compulsory burn tonight (if the weather behaves).

Well, I just found out last week that my girlfriend (oops, sorry, that's "partner" in this PC crazy world) and I both got the jobs we applied for in Perth, starting on the 18th of July (yep, major panic clean/pack/freight mode now). It's going to be a big change from little old Invercargill, New Zealand, looking forward to the warmer weather though. I'll have to get along to the Perth fire meets, just didn't have the time when we visited in February.

I'd better go and find some drop-bear repellant wink

You will be in Perth in time to come on a picnic with Psycholemming in one of the parks here. Keep Sunday the 25th July free. Assuming I get organised.
PM me or Medusa when you get in and we would love to fill you in on the one meet that happens at the moment. There is a local fire board too.

It took a while, but once their numbers dropped from 50 down to 8, the other dwarves started to suspect Hungry.

Posted:Hi Medusa & Gnor, I'll still be finding my feet on the 25th but I'll try to make it to the meet.

Hey Icer, I was born & raised in Christchurch. Invergiggles is a bit colder, a lot windier & we get 1/2 an hour less daylight today. But we also get a lot more daylight at the summer solstice (but still windier & colder).

A comparison of 4 day forecasts (Celsius):
Invercargill (Min-Max)
4-11
2-9
2-8
1-9

Perth (Min-Max)
3-17
6-19
11-17
9-17

'nuff said really.
