I saw a demo at a wildlife centre in Alice Springs (the Palm Springs of Australia?) so I'm sure there are options for that. I didn't think you could hunt though.

I had to look up Lake Eyre, it's a salt flat like Bonneville... I know Bonneville area has the same sort of unforgiving muck under the hard crust.

But yeah the wings. Seems like they would have thought of that, or hung it backwards or something... 

 
Lake Eyre last filled in 2011 so I can imagine it was still wet underneath. Apparently birds flock in from hundreds of miles away to breed when it has water.

There is a Lake Eyre Yacht Club: At this stage there is about a 30% chance of a regatta in 2015.  Even if there is a wind and with the shallow bottom, they apparently don't get much in the way of waves because the salinity makes the water pretty viscous.

Bogged plane at Lake Eyre a monument to bad day in the outback



Pro tip: remove wings before trying to sling a plane beneath a helicopter. Not the first time this scenario has played out.

Since I can't find the quit-smoking thread:

Australia put cigarettes in standardized packs with graphic labels — and they’re working

As a nonsmoker (my mother claimed none of her kids smoked as a response to all the cigarette ash dropped in our eyes while we were nursing), my only problem is that it is pretty gross to have to look at the packs left around by the smokers.


 
This is the thread you're looking for.

Worth a repost over there.  Gave me the willies.  Could be what it takes to get me to finally get there and hang em up.

The wife finally quit after her back surgery in July.

Melbourne Cup day was yesterday and it is a big deal in Oz. About 100,000 people go to see and be seen and to get piss drunk. Some people actually watch the race. Afterwards the area is covered with an impressive amount of trash and passed-out white trash. It's a public holiday in most of Victoria (we get Bendigo Cup day off instead).  Around the rest of the country work often stops so people can watch the race.
I'm not really interested in fashion but I confess to enjoying the creativity of the women getting 'all frocked up'. I'm only interested from an artistic viewpoint, really. {#Yes}

It's a footbridge across the Yarra River in Melbourne.  They built a bar around the piling under the bridge in the middle of the river.  Unfortunately the river is flooding it out.  The TV news is loving it. 

The fancy building in the background is the Flinders Street train station.
