Was that a beer tank they were loading on the ship? Just needed a paint job I think. We'll have to level out a spot uphill from the fire pit so we can get free-flowing suds to the stumps. Put a tap on each stump? HHHhhmmmm....least we know they have a way to deliver it.

Wonder how long it takes those centepedes to stop. Gotta keep a sharp eye out for pot holes!

Interesting point about the stopping distances mate. The general rule of thumb on the outback roads is you give the right of way, and the road, to the road trains...too many wheels to be throwing up stones...be like driving through a hailstorm. As for stopping...each wheel has it's own brakes, albeit a drum brake, but each wheel has more brake surface than an entire cars brakes. It would say to come to a dead stop from 60 kph (about 37 mph) they would need 100 metres (about 110 yds). Their braking capacity is really dependent on the grip of the tyres...they can lock all brakes with ease.

Beer on tap around the fire...you've won me Suz...be awesome. We have that capability here at home...might have to investigate it.

Scroll through the pics at the top of the page.

Here ya go...plans for a beer cooler.
Jockey Box Beer Tap Cooler

I reckon with a combination of yours and my tinkering abilities we could build a couple of these with ease mate.

Cheers, Vince

Jockey Box with food grade wire reinforced PVC works a treat! Use about a mile of it, line that whole sucker with it, fill it with salt water and ice and it'll crack yer teeth. Copper tube cools it faster though...but boy it aint cheap!

Still trying to figure out what the white cat is for but...I'm game!
