    That is the infamous red back spider... very venomous...as in the famous song:

    Slim Dusty - Red Back On The Toilet Seat

    There was a redback on the toilet seat when I was there last night
    A A7 D
    I didn't see him in the dark but boy I felt his bite
    G
    I jumped high up into the air and when I hit the ground
    A A7
    that crafty redback spider wasn't nowhere to be found

    G D
    There was a redback on the toilet seat when I was there last night
    E E7 A7
    I didn't see him in the dark but boy I felt his bite
    D G
    And now I'm here in hospital, a sad and sorry plight
    A A7 D
    and I curse the redback spider on the toilet seat last night

    D G
    I rushed in to the missus told her just where I'd been bit
    A A7 D
    she grabbed the cutthroat razor and I nearly took a fit
    G
    I said, "Just forget what's on your mind and call the doctor please
    A A7
    Cos' I've got a feeling that your cure is worse than the disease

    That's right...It's an imperial with a white satin liner...You will love it!
    That would be a cool idea though...Make a heritage fur Camp Draft....Hmmmm:D

    Hmmmmm. You guys are a bad influence. I broke down and ordered a moonstone Fed Deluxe IV last night. They're down to $108 and change. The heritage quality felt is quite a bit nicer than the imperial, though I do love my Campdraft.

    IndyCop- I know you'll post pics of what a "taupe fawn" color looks like.
    Thats the color of the one I'm waiting on and I'm curious.
    RBH- is that pretty much the color of yours, you figure?

    bluegrass green and black Campdraft

    I received an email from Sam at www.everythingaustralian.com.au this morning and he said that if enough people would email him about the bluegrass green and the black Campdraft being discontinued, that he would start a petition and the folks at Akubra might change their mind about discontinuing these colors for the Campdraft.

    I had emailed Sam at Everything Australian about the discontinuation of Bluegrass Green Campdrafts and I got a similar email from him this morning. I won't post the entire email, but there are some other items of interest in it:

    1) Black, Bluegrass Green & Mid Grey are all now discontinued for the Campdraft.
    2) Sam is trying to get Akubra to change its mind on Black and Bluegrass Green.
    3) He wants to start a petition that he can take to Akubra to demonstrate that there's a market for these colors.
    4) Here's what he said about the petition: "If people will send me an email with their name and email address I will be able to go to Akubra and say I have a lot of people who want these colours. They are very good people and will listen."

    So, if you would like to see these colors continued in production, drop Sam a line with your email address, and perhaps, collectively, we can help persuade Akubra to keep making the Campdraft in these colors.
