Song Thrush

DC Cameras

DC Cameras are an online store, based in Sydney I think. I am suspicious that it is a scam/criminal front.

WTP apres le deluge

What is the state of the roads in the WTP at present? I have a thought of visiting on the way from the Grampians to Sale but in a 2WD car and don't want to slide all over the place (and especially not into a pond)!
