-5.4! (Make that -6.3!)

By johnboy 20 June 2012 28

cold ride

So that was a good hard frost this morning and still not over zero.

The Kelpie of Few Accomplishments and I thoroughly enjoyed the frosty walk to The Eagle’s Nest this morning (left the bike at work last night for reasons best not gone into).

Did you get of shot of the frost this morning? Send it in to images@the-riotact.com .

UPDATE 20/06/12 09:23: Actually if we go from the Bureau it was -6.3.

What’s Your opinion?

That street looks very familiar. Inner city hedges, roads with recent storm water pipe construction, parks at the end of the street. What are you doing wandering around Anslie early in the morning?
I probably did some of the paperwork authorising that construction. You know we do it just so people can jack hammer you inner urbanites awake first thing on a Sunday morning.

Thank you Thumper.

That precise conundrum cost the Dept of Transport (many years ago) a hell of a lot of money in an advertising campaign. Many thousands of A1 posters were printed before it was pointed out that ‘lose’ and ‘loose’ meant diferent things.

Lose….

Unless you’ve lost loose bearings.

I suspect that even the masochists out there would squirm at the thought of mounting that one although it would give a whole new meaning to frostbite!

Where’s Troy Buswell when you need him?

Although he would get a rather icy reception he’s the man for the job!

Another variation on the thermal clothing – “Silkbody” silk thermals. Not only are they amazingly effective, but the fact that they breathe well means I can wear them to bushwalk with in the summer. Just need an airing after use, and the occasional handwash in lukewarm water.

The catches are that I’ve only ever seen them on sale in one place in Australia; Platypus Outdoors in Melbourne, and they are not cheap, at around $110 a piece for tops and pants.

I find them light and very comfortable, though, and far less itchy than either wool blends or polypropolene.
