I definitely left with my sanity, can't say much about my liver though. Not that I had much of one when I arrived either........ Victoria Bitter, Carlton, Toohey's, and Castlemain XXXX (I think I spelled those right?) and the obvious Foster's kept me drunk enough to remember virtually nothing of my trip but the names of what i drank

It is my understanding that the American Dustbowl situation only got important after a dust storm made it to DC or NYC.

I spent 4 days in Perth and the surrounds in the early 80's and have yet to visit a friendlier place. I actually started to grow a third arm in response to the incessant offers of yet another beer, as my original 2 arms couldn't keep up. Somewhere up north at the farm is a jar of opal chips which I haven't seen in 20 years, but Mom keeps insisting she has seen it.

That is correct. It was a storm that blew up to the door of the senate at the same exact time that (i belive) the then President was giving a speech about how bad it was and how he wanted them to do somthing about it!

That sounds like the quintessential aussie trip to me Did you ever get to try Coopers? South Aust beer, brewed in the bottle so it's nice n cloudy...and strong. Guaranteed to put hair where you had none before

Always liked Vic Bitter myself, for general drinking. Back when I could drink...alas it's against doc's orders now. However deeply unpatriotic that may be lol

Funny you should say that orangello! Country people have indeed been complaining "But we get this sh*t all the time and it never makes the news until you city slickers cop it"

I may have tried Coopers.....who knows, it certainly felt like I had tried everything when I woke up every morning I agree, I liked the Victoria bitter the best, I just ordered what everyone else was drinking and it paid off
