Indonesia is full of so many contradictions in so many different ways but this place takes the cake.

Yeah everyone's got a 4WD these days but I lot of them think they have to have the trailer and all that shit and it limits where they can go.
With a bit of imagination you can lose the crowds.
And there's always the ultimate way to find solitude - walk more than a kilometre or two.

I don't know about the walking thing to find solitude. An old trail I walked yesterday had a dozen crew with ski poles ,large backpacks with 'hydration' tubes dangling,, and selfie sticks. I was practically forced into a position off the track in the bitou bush while the herd made their way back to nearest cafe for 'debriefing'.

Where abouts are you TS?
Yeah places near me like Mt Warning and Springbrook are full of lycra-clad mincers but plenty of places in northern NSW and even Lamington have quiet corners.
Still a good bet for some peace and quiet I reckon.

absolutely Andy M - and it's about timing. Early and late, dusk and dawn, the golden hours, always fewer out around then. And its just like surfing, that's when a lot of the nature magic happens

Days like today with a light drizzle are just magic in the bush.

Watched 'The Miami Showband Massacre' last night.. pretty good docco on an event I'd never heard of before. Gives a lot of insight into the period of conflict in Northern Ireland from '68 to '98 too.

Not sure if this has been posted before but motivating. I am not a skier but this looks hard core.

Zombie-scrolling through Netflix on the weekend and up came BMX Bandits into my recommendation list. What the hell, I thought, time for an 80's flashback.

And far out! The rental VHS copy of BMX Bandits must have been on high-rotation from Video-Ezy, as I knew every single word. Wasn't quite as corny as I feared it might be, either.

Best part was seeing the Manly region back in the early 80's. Looks like a half decent bank at North Curly too!

The Younger Dryas Comet - How big was it?

12,900 years ago, between 6 and 9 minutes after impact, secondary debris rained down between 1000km and 1500km from the primary impact site with an energetic coverage of 21 megatons per square kilometre and forming the famous Carolina Bays. Compelling presentation by Antonio Zamora; the maths of it are staggering.

A really good fictional story based on facts of that time , Bones of the dark moon , written by Richard Lewis who grew up in klungkung and was 9 years old at the time . https://www.amazon.com/Bones-Dark-Moon-Richard-Lewis/dp/1492761346. Ive spoken to local friends and its a time they don’t really like to talk about , brother turned against brother nephew against uncle , you only had to be accused of being a communist and were taken away never to be seen again .Estimated 50,000 murdered in Bali

North American continent got terraformed in an afternoon. To survive, yes, you would need a bigger boat, or to have been in Australia.
