The cat we I woke up to on the second night was four times the size of your normal "putty tat' and was black with white back legs-come to think of it it did look like a bit like jamos avatar in the dark
catching up on a thread I've missed ... bit confused by this one. Toppster, Fullerton is not slanting you against me I hope? what's wrong with my avatar? Marley is a legend!
Baaa humbug, not enough fossicking time!

Happy Fossicking from Chookie

Geology Rocks, I really dig it.
My rocks are gneiss, don’t take them for granite.

We are currently in a motel in Winton on our way home from our trip to Harts Range and I must add to the "cat story". On about our second night we heard a noise in the kitchen part of our tent. Hubby unzipped our tent to find a HUGE cat staring at him  :o. He jumped back quick smart holding the flap closed when it went for him. After we heard it take off we investigated what it had been after and found a full fruit cake had been pulled out of a shopping bag and dragged to the where it had gotten in. It had already had a few bites. Daughter and I made fun off him next day when he said how big it was but then a fellow camper brought over a copy of a local newspaper that showed photos of large cats being caught in the Territory. One is said to be 20kg :o.

Had a good laugh at your story  :o Good the hear the Gem Tree panther is still roaming and causing mischief.

Hope you found a few nice zircons. Were the young Belgians still there?

Just got back home today and unpacking all the camping gear, washing and so on. Haven't had a chance to go through our finds properly yet. Hopefully we have a couple of cutters among them. We ended up with zircon, garnet, quartz, apitite and some iolite. The iolite we only specked old diggings for.

The Belgians are still there but we didn't talk to them.

The trip took over 5000km so we are happy to be home but not for long. Still have some time up our sleeves so it's off to Mackay for some crabbing and fishing before settling back down again.
