Don't look to me for help. I'm on a road trip remember.
Not much time for helping on the interwebby.
Too busy moaning about the rain and yesterday went to Cape Otway - Mrs G moaned about the cold (6c but wind chill made it about -300... slight exaggeration guess!)
I climbed up inside the lighthouse (1848-1994 - now decommissioned: I guess we don't care about ships' safety now!) No room for even an iPad climbing the 76 steps and then the steel ladder! So you couldn't expect me to wake up the thread. Should it be the job of Parallax to moderate the thread so all the posts don't bunch up at one time of the day? 17 hours was an excessive pause, eh?

btw - they didn't use any cenemt in the construction of the light house!! The stone blocks are just sitting on top of one another!!! Even the stone (76) steps are just hanging from space or something. Seems to me the lighthouse keeper was more at risk than the sailors and their cargo/passengers!!

For some reason I feel like so much less of a man, sitting here in my recliner, sipping some fine bourbon, pot of chili simmering on the stove, laptop on lap, and reading about the adventures of Indiana Jones.

Go to Wilson's Prom, a magical place in rain and fog, especially Mt. Oberon.

You're drinking whisky, how much more manly does it get? And you just made me go downstairs and pour myself a single malt, so that's your good deed for the day

Chili, booze, and a good book? I think Indy would approve of the way you're spending some downtime. I mean think about. Adventures aside, he IS a professor and rather fond of books after all. Mind you he'd probably be doing it in a cabin up some wickedly high mountain that you can only access via climbing with your bare hands or something...

Thanks for the suggestion, but Wilsons Prom is the southernmost part of the Gippsland region of Victoria, and I am an old Gippslander so I know it well.
Rain and fog is what South Gippsland does best (well, apart from being the best dairy country in Australia). Parts has 100 inches of rain per year, until the pioneers made the forests into farms. The history books speak of 'corduroy' roads. I have never found a definition, but surmise that they used small timbers crosswise across the road to make a firm but bumpy surface.

It has been a while since I visited the Prom, so I might take up your suggestion.
