You were eaten alive while hiking? Maybe I need to re-think my desires 
to hike Australia....

EDIT of Re-post: Hilleberg Stalon GT tent – Tord

Tord, you have added a lot of good information!  There are several 
areas that need corrected, but it is mostly grammar and spelling at 
this point.  I know it's sometimes hard, but it is most important 
that you remember not to use the word "you" in the report due 
to "projection", which has been done repeatedly, and which caused a 
lot of the edits.

When you've made the necessary changes, please re-post to this list 
again, using the title:

It is very important to use the word "Re-post" in the title to help 
us catch your post and track changes.

Well not quite eaten alive, but was bitten on the end of my finger. 
Scared the hell out of me as I was asleep. Dived into my bivvy, 
zipped it up and stayed there for the rest of the night .... I am a 
wimp :-). I was sleeping in a Bibbulmun Track hut on the northern 
half; one that is popular so lots of folks leaving food bits around 
the place I suspect has attracted the mice and rats (native mind you 
not pommie imports).

Allergic to snakes too :-)

Andrew

Hi Matt

Given this group consists mainly of Americans and that Macpac's 
penetration into the US market is not huge, I doubt you will get much 
of a response. I strongly suggest you try asking in the 
aus.bushwalking newsgroup. If you don't have a newsreader you can 
access newsgroups easily via Google's group pages at 
<http://groups.google.com.au/grphp>.

OR question

Hi I wrote an owner review a while back and posted the final copy here 
and uploded the HTML to the the OR folder in backpackgeartest but I 
never got a respons or directions of what to do next.  I was wondering 
if maybe it got skipped over but this is my first OR so I'm still 
trying to figure out the process.  The message number with my review 
is 70016 and it has a link to the HTML. Thanks for your help.
