    Thais in Townsville

    I really don't know if I am posting this in the correct section but yeah. I'll be in Townsville next month and was wondering if anyone is from there, or has Thai friends around that area.

    Oh yes that's for sure, " The Brothers " run wild in Townsville. I worked there for 2 years in the late 70's.

    A bit of a reality check for the uninitiated.

    Funny old place Townsville, its dead smack in the tropics but misses out on all the rain fall up that way.

    Go 150K North and It pisses down in season.

    Anyway Far North Queensland is a brilliant spot. Enjoy.
    I do not give Patsycat " The Horn " thank Fuk.

    Hi Terry are they aggressive? Its a good thing that it doesnt rain too much. I dislike tropical thunderstorms, but rather unfortunate that the area gets hit by cyclones every so often.

    You should be ashamed to call yourself a Ocker, that's the problem with Aussies there still in the colonial mode.

    Next thing your'll be telling me they don't do mining in Broken hill.

    and that's just the Sheila's.

    Townsville on a Saturday night is a nut house full of pissed up miners.

    You do however get some tasty backpackers at the YHA if the local cannibals don't beat you to it.

    I was 19 years old when I first arrived in Townsville on a road trip from Perth.

    We had a mad mate who had Joined the Army and was stationed there. We hooked up with him and his mates for a while, actually shared a house together.

    Best part was when he fuked off out in the Bush for their frequent exercises. These Army boys where not popular as they would go out in groups get pissed up and create all sorts of shit.

    Up side was the local " Brothers " avoided them. To many to fuk with.

    The local guys hated them. The Army boys seem to do OK with the local girls for some reason, fuk knows why.

    I was lucky, I made friends with the locals and hung out with them well away from the Army fuk ups. Did not like them at all.

    Think about Israeli Backpackers and one is pretty close to these lot.

    To be expected thou, young guys, many first time away from their mommy and pissed up on two beers. Way it is.

    Made many trips up to Cairns and Port Douglas when they were sleepy little hollows. Amazing wonderful places back then. Daintree Rain Forest. Superb.

    Next year I'm going to return to Perth in May, hook up my Caravan and head up to CookTown in Far North Queensland. I'll park my arse up there for their tropical winter. Never been that far, it's time to do it.

    Looking forward to that. Cost some serious dollars to do a trip like this these days but fuk it, I need to burn off some SuperAnnuation.

    Yeah mate, the cost is staggering. I havent the faintest idea why either. I guess with such a high minimum wage businesses feel they are entitled to charge what they do. The stratospheric property prices arent helping either. I believe they will still continue to rise.
