I'm in Melbourne on a 60 day work visa. I only work for about 30~ of those ays. Looking for some advice on things to do, places to see. Maybe hook up with some people to burn. Whatever it's all good.

I'm 25, white dude from Canada if that matters at all.

Spent my first day off today, just walking around for hours was pretty cool to see the city. Got some nice pictures of some street art and older buildings. How come all the churches ruined their stained glass? It all looks brown and ugly

Look online and find a hunting guide in the Wilderness or something.
Apparently you can find some decent game there.
And you dont sound like youve been hunting.

You can also go diving,however it is winter there.

Hey man, Melbournefag here. Disregard what's been said earlier, there's no wilderness to be hunting in or any diving to be had. Sure there's a few good national parks which are within 1-2 hours drive away, but the weather at the moment is rubbish. Also we're not known for diving spots, Port Phillip bay's too murky for it. Good surfing on either side of the peninsula, but swimming/snorkling... very no.

Melbourne's more the place to be for the bars/cafes/nightlife/arts/hipster-shit. Which side of the city are you on?

Hey /vroom/

I got in an accident a few days ago and the other driver was found to be at fault. I will be receiving compensation from his insurance company, and I need a new vehicle.

What should I get? I am thinking of a safe, durable SUV that can go camping and such but still get decent mileage to work and on the highway.

A co-worker pointed out to my dad that he appeared to have a nail in his rear-right tire. He went to the WalMart Tire Shop to check it out, and the repairman just handed him this, and even he didn't know what it was. It doesn't appear to be a nail, as the edges are too rounded and it would take a huge amount of force to penetrate a tire.

So guys, what is it?

More information: my dad's truck is a gray 2003 Ford F-250. He never noticed any issues with the tire until the co-worker pointed it out. His tire was going flat because of it though, so he was forced to air it up a bit before driving across town and eventually going to the tire shop. Living in Houston, TX, might be irrelevant info but I don't know.

A message from your friendly neighborhood pizza delivery driver;

>DO THE SPEED LIMIT (if not 15 over).

Thank you for your time.

PS- If there is not a single car behind me, and you pull out in front of me only to do 10 under the limit, I'm going to ram you off the road and beat you to death the the bloody end of your own arm.

PPS- You are not only inconveniencing myself when you cut me off and refuse to let me pass, you are screwing over an innocent customer. Do you want your food fast and fresh? Then GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY WAY.

tbh tho, i did delivery, ive worked for tips. on a 14 dollar hair cut i give a 20 dollar bill on a do the same for 24 dollar delivery i give em 2 twenties and ask for a 10 spot back.

No not really because if you order a $6 item it is just as much effort as a $20 order. I don't know of any places without a ten dollar minimum for delivery, but if you tip one dollar you're a cheap faggot cunt who shouldn't order out if you won't spare another 4 or at least 3 dollars. I've worked in pizza jobs and believe me, everyone knows you're being a dick

I've got a '10 Subaru Forester. Bought it used. Currently at 85.8k.

She's making weird ass noises when I turn hard. Screechy and loud. It doesn't do it every time I turn hard, but more often than not.

Anyone else ever experience this? Power steering issue? Steering column?

Yeah but it's inevitable, like i think using full lock is just proper usage.
Obviously you're a shit driver if you do it a lot but never using it is kinda stupid as, say, you can park in a place in one go using full lock while you could go back and forth forever if you never used just the right steering angle.

Subaru guru here. Air in the loop, open the power steering reservoir and look inside, have someone turn the wheel lock to lock, if you see air bubbles there's your problem. Common subaru fault but cheap to fix.

2 most common locations for this, the orings ontop of the power steering pump, on the plastic inlet piece, get crusty and allow air to get sucked in, other location is the spring clamps that hold the hoses to the reservoir itself, they don't seal very well if it ever gets moved. Slap some traditional worm drive hose clamps on there and call it a day.

I'd do both, cheap >$5 fix and shouldn't take more than an hour. Don't bother doing this if you don't see bubbles in the reservoir when doing the test noted above.

Ok, guys. My car is a 98 Cavalier Z24, and I'm driving 500 miles tomorrow. I have bottled water, all the fluids for my car, gps, phone charger, and roadside tools with the knowledge to rebuild the damn thing if I have to. I'm working with a fresh motor with original ignition system (that stumbles every now and then), original tranny (sticky safety switch, can be bypassed if necessary), brand new tires, new battery, alternater, and starter. BUT, I've only driven it about 20 miles at a time in town. I'm not confident in my ride. Is this just pre trip jitters, or should I be concerned. This is also my first road trip in over 4 years.

Tl;dr: 18 year old rebuild car, decent trip, but nervous about the first road trip in years.

I bought a '94 Buick for $2000 and it's cherry. It was an out of state car for all but 2 years of its life (I live in Michigan, so the salt and damp can be a car killer) I'm thinking about applying one of those rubberized undercoats to it to help protect it, but idk how well those work. The usual older car in Michigan is usually rotted the fuck out. I'm talking like, even the rocker panels completely gone, jack points gone, chunks of rust falling off the body panels, etc.

Not a single spot of rust anywhere on the body or frame, it's goddamn immaculate underneath. 138k miles on it which really isn't that much for a 3800 series V6. Only problem I've had with it is a previous owner had a mechanic put a 3rd party fuel pump on the thing, and the mechanic fucked it all up somehow, so I replaced that with a brand new OEM fuel pump that I got for $70 and haven't had a single problem since. Thing even came with brand-new Cooper tires on it, which is nice.

So yeah, generally speaking you're right, there's a dead zone from early 90's to mid 2000's where a majority of American car models are shit. But there's some damn good ones out there if you know where to look.

As for where I found my car, I was looking around on Craigslist, and every single car I found on that website was pure and utter overpriced shit. One guy wanted 3 grand for a rusted out Pontiac Grand Prix that had 218k miles and had been fucking rolled. On the way to check out (oddly enough) another Buick Lesabre of the same year or very close (think it was a '93) I saw the car I currently own in a driveway with a for sale sign. I checked it out, saw it was in fan-fucking-tastic condition and talked to the guy, put $100 down, went to go check out the other Buick anyway 'cause why the fuck not, turns out the other buick had NO brakes. I mean you had to pump the brake pedal for a good long while and then stand on the thing to even get it to slow down. So, went back to the other guy, bought the '94, and lived happily ever after. Except for the fuel pump fiasco. Idk what was wrong with it exactly, something to do with the strainer or something and the fact that it was a cheap a…

Thats the reason I told him to get rid of the truck he saves $800 puts at least couple thousand in his pocket and spends less than half the amount on airfare than it would cost to drive. ATL is a Delta hub and they bought Northwest Airlines which had a hub in Portland so a flight between the two shouldnt cost too much one way.

It's easy for the professional bums and drug addicts with nothing to lose. Police will harass you endlessly with tickets in hopes you don't pay so they can arrest you and clear the bums off the sidewalk. Other bums will jack your stuff while you sleep, or shoot you with pepper spray and try to steal your money/everything.

To do this you have to hook up with a group of street punks and look out for each other, and most of them are drug addicts so expect to get dragged into the drama of unpaid drug debts and street level enforcers threatening your group if one of you is selling a little on the side. Then there's dealing with all the drunks coming out of clubs that try to fight you, and various mentally ill nutcases.

I don't hit 27 unless I am strapped with water and food. I've done 17lbs before but that is excluding decent clothes and shit. Winter is about 22. 20ish is like nothing but 30 is walking death for me.

But then again, I never dumped hardly anything and always carry everything damn near. Some rare times I would find a perfect spot to hide my shit and/or bike really close to town but if I lost my gear I'd be completely fucked because I would always run with so little money. I would almost always be hitting pavement too so I'm sure that wears on you more than dirt. Plus the slight slope on road shoulders will fuck your hips up if you walk it a ton. Add weight to that and the effects grow exponentially.

Do you smoke? I don't know what to say, when I was in boy scouts we carried upwards of twenty pounds every trip. Who ever was carrying the camp oven was carrying over twenty just from that. Granted we weren't hiking for days on end or anything but it was more than just an hour or two.

lotsa words in this thread I didn't read. See I still want a mailing address I think, I gotta buy shit off amazon and also make money. I guess I could rent a lot but that shit is way too expensive it seems, several hundred dollars a month, wtf?

30lbs on your back ain't exactly a whole lot. it's a good load, but that was the maximum load my foldable day pack was rated for, not saying I always hauled 30lbs around with it.

Besides, my backpack in school with all the books regularly weighed over 40lbs. You know, with 4-6 of those massive, thick textbooks, notebooks, paper, etc etc. gets heavy.

When I'm one the road I'm around 140lbs and 5'9" so I'm not tiny or massive. Just skinny. I guess it is intermittent use. I have my pack on my back literally all day if I am hitching and I still have it on for multiple hours if I am on a bike.

I recently got out of the Navy, and am hanging out in Washington state for the foreseeable future. I figure a good way to decompress and de-stress would be to do a lot of hiking and just wandering in the PNW.

If anyone has a lot of experience with long walks, I'd really appreciate advice concerning a great pair of walking boots. I honestly have no idea, and this seems like the right place to ask. Thanks!

Are army boots any good?

Eh, military boots are mostly designed for function and practicality, not comfort. if you don't mind not having comfortable boots, but boots that will keep your feet dry and warm and last forever, then yeah. But the civilian market is probably the better choice here.

Not saying military boots are pain machines, as that would be detrimental to the soldier's effectiveness. But there's much more comfortable choices out there that will work just as well, if you know what I mean?

Getting good boots for hiking holidays is a must.

Get a pair of Scarpas and look after them.
