Death of a DAKAR legend...jawaproMon 09/01/2006 09:18 PM
Today is a very sad day.
Andy Caldecott has been killed in the 9th stage of the DAKAR rally.
Andy was a great rider, and it was a real pleasure seeing him mix it up with the world´s best.

Hey - it´s finally on again!!!
The DAKAR Rally has started.
I love this rally - its the best sporting event of the year, and its also the first one - it starts on New Years Day. So it started yesterday.
SBS does a daily update at 6 in the arvo that lasts 30 min. I´d suggest anyone who´s interested takes a look. Its a fantastic rally, hundereds of cars, bikes, and trucks doing the marathon trek down to Dakar in Africa. Some of the stages take 24 hours to complete or longer. By the time they get to the end, the difference between first and second can be hours - not the minutes and seconds in most rallys. Sometimes people are days behind...
I made a collage picture (which isnt very good) but its got some great shots in it. Enjoy

I thought I´d show this off - because I think its really cool. I got it about a week ago, but this is the first time I´ve had the camera and been able to take a photo of it.
Its a DALEK from England. Tommy (a friend of mine) sent it down when he was up there for a while. I think its great, and you cant get them down here (at least not that I´ve found).
It´s a keyring, but I think I´ll just keep it as a collectable.

Hey everyone - I´m back from my Christmas trip. Very nice to catch up with family again. Got some cool goodies for Christmas too! The picture is of Newmans Beach, where we went for a walk on the Monday. I´ve camped here before, and I really like it here.
