    Great read as always Cobber...

    Yeah, that Cyclone should definitely brew up I reckon, given the monsoon trough location... which should also help to keep pushing it south before it curves.

    Keep a bloody close eye on it tho, if it deepens earlier or further east in the Timor Sea than current prediction it could do what about 3 of them did last year and hug the coast.

    Old Sailors trick, face the wind and the cyclone is over your left shoulder, if it is South of West you can start to relax a tad (less dangerous quadrant), if its North of West (most dangerous quadrant) it may well still have you in its sights... apparently cyclones only like going downhill :-)
    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Yesterday we left the Dampier Peninsula for the last time & are now living in a house (in Broome) for the first time in 11 months. Soon we'll be dragging the Tvan into the North Kimberley.

    Truly engaging write up. I am living vicariously for now.
    As I lay there looking up, taking in the spectacular view that was the night sky and the multitude of stars I asked myself, where did my tent go?

    Wife retires in December, then it begins.
    A few more trial runs before then to nurture the desire.
