Thanks!
Um, what is not there in Australia? Mountains? Snow? Fog?  :think:

Well I reckon all of the above - Although Syncop8r has proved otherwise - Although I don't see a gum tree in that photo - It was probably taken on a trip to Switzerland  :pok:
And of course we do have the Blue Mountains - Which are neither blue nor mountains!! - They really should be called the Green Valleys  ;)
And we also have the Snowy Mountains  - which I believe really do have snow - although I have never been there - so cannot confirm this  :o

Here in Switzerland we think Down Under is the paradise.
Once in a lifetime visit Australia - this dream has many here.
Well many would agree: Sunshine, (lots of it), awesome beaches, the bush, the Outback, stunning flora, beautiful birds and weird but cute animals - kinda the opposite to La Suisse
- Although Marmots have got to be as cute as Koalas !! Well nearly
Also happy people (except Sydney drivers), and nice lifestyle.
Come on Down -  :D - You'll be very welcome.  :tu:

Cute animals!  As far as I can tell they're all venomous and/or full of teeth and trying to kill you. :D  Koalas are just biding their time IMO. ;) 

Wouldn't stop me taking a trip down under though. :tu:

Look at the animal in my avatar - it's a Quokka which are Australian. Are you scared of that?  ;)

Here's a gum tree in the background next to my old house...  :pok:

Remember we're Down-er and Under-er than you.  :D

I found myself camping alot more in the summer last year in hot,  humid weather.  Being a bigger guy I found myself wearing lose shorts without a belt.  That's when I fell in love with crkt minimalist bowie. And of course my huntsman.

They're in league with the Koalas and are just lulling you into a false sense of security.  Run while you still can! :ahhh

OK, maybe just a tiny bit cute as well. ;)

Very cute! I had to look it up on WikiPedia. I thought it was a teddy bear!  :)

Last time I did a lot of backpacking (in BoyScouts), I carried my Vic Adventurer, 111mm sidelock, when they first came out.  It covered everything I needed back then.
Now I carry a Vic OHT,  and it got plenty of use last time we went car camping, especially in the camp kitchen, opening packages and slicing a slab of bacon.  ;)

I always take with me Old Wave- that's my most important tool for all outdoor activities.
Moreover, during my trips accompany me modified SAK TiFarmer and one of my my folding knives, usually small Sebenza 21 insignio or Spyderco Slysz Bowie.

A modified wave, the lid of my canteen cup (hafted and sharpened if need be) and a folding saw. This "big knife" thing is the bunk.

Interesting. :tu: Any one tool in particular that you find indispensable?

Knife is most used. What I like about it  is its a complete basic tool set with land nav capability that drops in your pocket.

I am still trying to determine indispensable. That's a tough one. In a non urban setting if we throw the knife out of the question I would say the compass, direction finding can be done without it but is more time consuming and prone to error.
