    Met the Guys at Patrolapart, gave 'em the starter, added a hundred, and walked away with a new radiator. Thank you, Patrolapart!

    Ventured north for a quick drive up to Mt. Disappointment, as I haven't been there for a number of years.
    As I was on my own with my 8yo son, I stuck to the main tracks & easy trails. Being wet after weekends rains, even the easy main steep trails had steering wheel gripping moments.
    Spent a few hours exploring, and the name of the place unfortunately seems fitting. Disappointing.
    It's difficult to find a sign, a name post, a feature that hasn't been absolutely gutted by bullet holes. Fence posts/barrier chains driven over or cut down.
    Andersons garden campground didn't have a fire pit without left over rubbish, boots, beer bottles, tampons, portable electric heaters... You name it.
    Such a shame...
    I filled up the spare wheel bag with as much as I could.
    I hate saying it, but I'm growing sympathy with authorities closing places down with such things going on.

    Yeah it's pretty s#!t the entitled attitude so many have just to use (abuse) a beautiful place with no respect or appreciation. We're are so lucky to have such amazing places in our backyard but especially the closer ones to populated areas such as Dissa are the worse. . Yep everytime I go bush always carry out selfish Fu&#ers rubbish they feel isn't a problem to throw in a beautiful environment that there for everyone to enjoy. . Seriously don't get it. . .

    If the mouth breathing drop kicks are cutting fences down, shutting the places won't stop them anyway.

    Yep, I don't know what can be done about them. I can't remember what campsite it is, but on the Madigan line there's a marker marking the campsite and it's completely defaced. This is in the middle of absolutely nowhere.

    I read a report last year I think it was, that some DHs cut down one of Len Beadell's track markers and took it, probably used it for firewood.

    I think it comes down to parenting, kids aren't taught to respect things or people, which isn't surprising as their parents don't respect themselves.

    The way our government look after their own.

    My 19 yo has got himself an apartment and has taken on the responsibility of being an adult.

    Being his first place he needs anything and we are there to help him get set up. With rent, car repayments and now bills it's going to be a bit of a stretch on a 1st year apprenticeship wage.

    So he gets onto Centrelink and applies for youth allow, living away from home. That was the only one that he falls into. Apparently you need to be receiving some sort of Centrelink payment to apply for rental assistance. So he submits and waits. Gets a notification he's been knocked back on the youth allowance, but not because anything that he's done, it's us as hard working parents trying to provide my son isn't eligible for anything as we earn too much.

    The threshold starts at $55,600.00 combined and then its on a sliding scale.

    The thing that gets me is that he is a dependent until he turns 22 regardless of where he is living.

    The only think he can do is to apply for a independent youth allowance, but that's only after he had lived away from home and working full-time for at least 18 months, he's 6 months in his apprenticeship.

    I moved out when I was about that age too mate, it was extremely tough to make ends meat on the $350-$400 I was earning every week. The only way to seek help off the government is to lie unfortunately, your son would have to say he's been couch surfing for the time needed and that he is estranged from you guys.

    The system is absolutely crap, and everything is at their pace the applications take so long. It just doesn't work in the real world. Good luck with it all mate

    I personally would ask for a case manager,
    We had similar with one of our kids years ago and went through hoops,they can get it even if you earn to much....just have to lie sign a stat Dec I think saying that there is no way he is ever welcomed back into your house as you've disowned him...hard call
