Never been to sea but I love the Australian desert.
If Global Warming is so prevalent why are there so many snowflakes around these days?

YM-, I am sure that is the sort of obsession that makes you quite suitable for the sea should you decide on a late change of course.

The Australian desert is never off my tv, if its not some Brit motorbiking across the Nullibar its Australia's stupidest family getting heat exhaustion looking for gold or opals in the red dirt. You can keep your oul scrub and Mick Dundee and Port Headland its the Green Glens of Antrim for me.
