If I had mentioned to the authorities that be, about filling it with water and irrigating out of it, I would have got a similar approach. Govt. bodies are really stretched for resources here and I am 40kms (25miles)from the nearest Town and the Dam is not visible from the road. I am waiting for a Satellite photo to show it up and then I have to start answering questions. Just had to grow some Balls or it was never going to happen :)

Will be having an opening in about a Month. All invited!! And seriously if any of you guys are over here in OZ, give me a call.

Well, it will cost me $1,800 and 29 hours of travel over with 2 stops, and 22 hours of travel back with 2 stops. :mad:

Double D I have been traveling back and forth over here for about 7 years now, working a 28/28 day rotation. It ain't that bad doing it for work. You can surely do it for fun :-)

I did a long one this time, 7 weeks and I'm ready to get home or it would be tempting.

This private lake appeared a few years ago just north of Lake Wissota in Wisconsin. I haven't driven past it but it looks to be a purpose built slalom course about 1800 feet long.
