Stoked more gear!!!!

Made the trip up to Bendigo today, went to see Steve at Rock Hardware. Although he was out training Colin was able to help out a lot thanks guys.

I would recommend to anyone who wants gear, support the sponsor of this forum, he has a lot of great products at good prices.

Thanks.

I wonder how that works. Do his surviving relations get any royalties or is it a business scam profiting from anothers fame?

It's just a guy off super topo who printed out replicas of the original. He's making bugger all off them. At $15 a piece he wont be getting rich any time soon.

I don't believe Harding had a wife or kids. There was a suggestion that his last girlfriend , Alice, get a slice but I don't think there is really much in the way of profit after the shirts are bought and the printing is done.

The first run was 46 shirts. I'm not sure what the second run was but only maybe 100.

So, to answer your question, I don't think it is a scam to profit off the fame of Harding. Heaps of his old friends have ordered them and even if it was a scam to profit off Warren Hardings name, I think Harding would be sitting on the big portaledge in the sky, drinking wine and saying, " fukking go for it".

...in one criterion out of a possible 200,000. In all other regards, Sydney sucks dead dogs balls. Canberra on the other hand. That's the way forward. 7 degrees, wet and windy at the moment. perfect for climbing. Or chook shed building.

I was really surprised how pleasant and 'normal' it felt compared to the sandy sweat salt fest conditions in February. Blue skies, westerly wind, flat water, boats cruising by... sand in my eyes, holds crumbling under my fingers, rust flaking off the bolts...

Yep sounds 'normal' to me, but I'd be careful about handing ammo to the people using 'weirdo' comments if I was you!

Quite a few threads on that topic.

In a nutshell.
Access difficult due through private land.
There are 3 cliffs. The middle one is best for climbing.
It looks better than it is.

>humour, pedant.
... I got it, but am afraid bl@ke got left out like the rosella on the tin!
