Short follow-up post... It was a good night at SES (ladders, knots and maintenance). Afterwards I drove back to Mooroopna to put some air in one of the tyres in my car that was low. The chap at the BP outlet was more than happy to help: he's been enquiring about volunteering with the Tatura unit and we were able to have a good long talk about it. He seems like a good, sensible fellow so I hope he'll follow through and join up.
Slightly warmer night tonight. It's now 1am and I'm surely looking to sleep. Have a great day!
