I wont make the same mistake twice Bruce! I am already planning the next
trip for may-June

That is just a short 7 months from now. Hopefully I can get my feet wet in
the northern territory this time but if not... couple,3 weeks around
Townsville and Cairns will do just fine. I would like to also hit some of
the remote areas around inisfail (sp)

I am curious to see how many different populations of the long finned
signifers are swimming out there around Townsville and getting back to the
valley of lagoons for the splendidas that didn't make it last time.
