Oh yeah! Budget or Avis, pretty much the same off-bitumen policies last time I checked.

That's hilarious, and a little scary, it's exactly what I do :)

When you overhear others at work talking about their "big" day in the bush, a day walk to the figure 8 pool or Mermaid pools or wedding cake rock and all you can do is cluck your tongue in disgust, sniff quickly at the air and hiss "amateurs" under your breath whilst bathing in a glow of superiority and an aura of unmatched egotism....

No, wait!... that's how you know you've become a total wanker not a bushwalker. My mistake.

When taking in a view every form of the land is assessed for the possibility of being a new place to walk.

When you see a rock formation, and think "how could I get to the top of that?"
