Yep, that was the modus operandi back in the days, also presenting yourselves are maintenance people, wearing overalls with toolboxes (with bottles of top shelf inside) was usually a walk-in success. But in context, you were also mostly dealing with volunteers/club social members working the gate, who were happy to accept any plausible story.
That's insultingJail for crossing borders. Not sure if Australia or North Korea.
They still would've won it if he hadn't been there. And from someone who's been at the 2017/19 GF's but had to watch 2020 on the telly, yeah it's not as good as being there, but the gap is most certainly not worth a conviction, let alone a jail term and a lost job and/or business.Seeing the Demons win the first grand of his lifetime? Probably
I agree. You should just be happy to see your team win the flag, regardless of where you watch it from.They still would've won it if he hadn't been there.

Used to have a connection to one as well. Some mutual pals were trying to figure out who ratted them out before it became known but no one thought it was anything but hilarious that they got done.I know one of the blokes who's in lock up now for a few months. He's easily the worst human being I've ever met. He's a self entitled ***** who's had everything handed to him on a platter, including his bar. And unless you're a D grade celebrity or higher, he treats you like crap.
Fraud was the big one and ultimately what landed them as convicted criminals and Christmas behind bars. Still yet to face court in NT as well which will be a fine. In terms of their businesses, financial planner awfully hard to get that career back. The bar? Current liquor laws in Victoria don't disallow convicted criminals to hold a liquor licence. But VCGLR will 100% review that licence now. In terms of the bar's success though? I have zero doubt that he has enough mates who are of the same kind, to fill that joint again.
Oh and the most recent article highlights what the lawyer for (bar owner) tried to use to get all 10 months suspended. Apparently the accused was diagnosed with ADHD and Bipolar in 2015 and the financial strains of his bar being shut for 240+ days led to him making some decisions that were not like him......
but he had no problem forking out $4.8m for a house in Toorak and inviting the entire Dees club over for a party.
I'm pretty sure it's been shut down due to COVID, it's the Great Central Road from Yulara to Laverton, the only real road access in has been via either of Eucla or Kununurra. The Gunbarrel Hwy goes that way too, from around Yulara to Wiluna.Wonder if anyone actually did this
There is an uncontrolled border crossing at the south-west of the NT, west of Uluru, near the Kata Tjuṯa.
Barring the occasional road wash out, it's a very well maintained wide gravel highway, suitable for 2WDs and trucks.
Would save days on the trip above... for next time....
Were talking about this the other day. My mate moved up to Byron when he was 19 (25 years ago, or so)
Did I scare you?Pandemic would've been sufficient. No need to up the fear porn by calling it a "deadly" pandemic. I'm pretty sure pandemics by their very nature are deadly.
