You went to Malcolm!! I have spent hours here poking around!! Great atmosphere...

Stuart Smith on November 9, 2013

I reckon you could get that started with a bit of luck.... :-))

Ever the optimist Stuart!, however it looks similar to one I found in the bush in Albany.. Could be ok for parts.... Not much to see of old Malcolm now... Not much fun in 40 degrees either... :-)

What's wrong with giving it a basic "push start".

Great shot Lex , is this pic from your trip outback? Fossicking is a great way to pass the time of day.
