It's that time again - SWMBO and I are making our annual pilgrimage to Nelson in the New Year - do we have any starters?

Hopefully, Gary will surface from his subterranean dwellings, and Wratt will dodge the fearsome Mot Wombats!

How does the weekend of Jan 09-10 sound?

:punk

I hopefully will be around have some appointments with my tramping pack over the break but will note that weekend down in my calender. Now all we need to do is convince Wotz, Kjaada, apsattv and some of the others.

Can we get this thread stickied?


I'll be near Nelson for new years Keep us posted of your progress south

You guys will have to keep organising this for a while I'm off to the sounds for work and will be back Friday night, no internet or even cell coverage where I'm going to be in Crail bay

Hi All

Yes I have been following this and at this stage may not be around, but that is not certain.

I will be there (where ever that may be) if in town, I could be in the Sounds (Endeavour Inlet)

I just got back from working in Crail Bay magic spot no neighbours apart from Weka's and Moreporks, boat access one hour from Havelock road access don't even ask.

Helps when the client also owns the water taxi costs nothing to get there and get paid to stay in such a spot

Any preference Nofam, Wratty for Sat 9th or Sun 10th?

wotz

Arnie

Definitely not. Easter 2012 probably for folks Golden wedding although I don't wish to attend as my Brother and I are not on speaking terms over a family matter. and April 1 the day of their anniversary (yeah I know April fools day) the weather will be abysmal.

Did you see the weather around the channel tunnel area? That's where I was brought up.

I will be out in the bush caving/tramping from Boxing day until the 31

wratterus
08-01-2010, 09:43 AM
The Mediterranean would be quite nice though... :p

gary67
08-01-2010, 10:14 AM
Sure would but it costs way too much to buy beer there

wratterus
08-01-2010, 10:14 AM

Well 5 of us made it to the Honest Lawyer for lunch in the sun, Nofam from Dunedin, Wratterus from Mot, Wotz from Richmond and Me and Acronum from Nelson. Nofam took the pics and they will be on here later

Pics here (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/IMG_1844.JPG) and here (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/IMG_1845.JPG).

(L - R), Acronum, Wratterus, Nofam, Wotz & Gary

Sorry about the quality; the timer on my camera is pretty short, and the Nelson sun is blinding!!! :P

A great couple of hours yarning away with the Nelson lads, and very nice to meet Wotz too. We solved most of the world's problems, and still had time for a beer! :banana

No need to be a homo either though.

For those of you uploading pictures, may I be so bold as to suggest that you use this tool unless the pictures are intended specifically for printing:

RIOT - Radical Image Optimization Tool

A free program designed to efficiently optimize images for the Web

http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot/

roddy_boy
13-01-2010, 12:23 AM
I really don't think any image optimization is necessary.

gary67
13-01-2010, 06:55 AM
Yeah it won't make Roddy look any better so don't worry about optimizing just try airbrushing over him with the background colour. :lol:

(tip of the day brought to you by me)

zqwerty

"I really don't think any image optimization is necessary."

Well it is if you are on dial up and people persist in uploading images which gain nothing by having a high dpi if they are not to be used for printing.

roddy_boy
13-01-2010, 01:47 PM
I don't think anyone wants the web optimized for dial up users any more zqwerty.

You would be surprised, Roddy. Not everyone is able to have broadband yet.

After the first four words, your post is riddled with redundancy too ;)
