    May he rest in Peace mate and i hope he enjoyed the Long Neck mate. Side note mate, the plaque says 23 December 1971? not 1970? if that is right you get to have a commemorative 50 year drink with him 2 years in a row brother! get someone to drive you and have a bloody longneck with him mate. Live Long mate, 49 is way to young!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    #1 Aboriginal Burial Site - Tibooburra

    Aboriginal burial site at Tibooburra in Corner Country. This one has been fenced and preserved as most have been lost or destroyed due to floods, erosion and stock damage.
    Mulga branches were stacked allowing windblown sand to form a mound, this is a practice unique to the Corner Country.
    Most senior or important person is buried at one end and is also represeneted by the size of the branches used. All graves also face the same direction.
    This was a pretty solemn place and not on any tourist maps, I was given the directions by a local. Unfortunately very few traditional burial sites remain.



    More info on the area: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiboob...ew_South_Wales

    #2 Broken Hill - Miners Grave

    Probably the deepest grave I'll ever see. Minining is a tough job, this is only a couple of hundred meters from the Broken Hill Miners Memorial. The Memorial contains over 800 names and that doesn't include those that died of lead and dust poisoning and other related diseases. These guys were only 19 and 21, they probably felt they were bullet proof.

    #3 Wil Hutchinson - Glengyle Station Bedourie

    Came across this memorial about 60km south of Bedourie on the way to Birdsville.
    Only 20 years old but he is recognised as Coober Pedys founder as he found the first Opal while gold prospecting. Unfortunatly drowned while droving cattle for the Kidmans.

    #4 RAF Pilots Grave - Losser Netherlands

    While cycling (what else do you do in the Netherlands) near the German border I came across this well maintained War Grave. I asked around and was told he was the only casualty and the other six were taken captive. Another person who gave their life for others and taken far to early.

    #5 John Flynns Grave - Alice Springs

    Well known founder of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the Australian Inland Mission. A little know fact is that he was also a pupil at the Snake Valley Primary School, the same school my children attended.
    When I first saw the memorial 35 years ago it had a very different rock on it. That rock had been taken from a sacred site at Karlu Karlu over 400 km away, since then it was returned and replaced by the current rock. He was so well respected by the local indigenous people they selected another rock to replace it.

    #6 Mick Pederson Memorial - Motorcyclist

    Found this small plaque at a lookout on Namatjira Drive near the West MacDonnell Ranges
    Tweated my interest so I did a bit of research, quite some controversy regarding the cause of his death. I've linked the inquest and also his wife's claims, sadly another life lost to early.
