Resting place of VA OH_DK
If you have stumbled across this page, please don't think I've gone off my rocker :o) .....Let me explain.
Well it all started when 12 vt'ers & 19 va's (that is virtual attendees) went on a big downunder survivor trip in the far outback of the Northern Territory.
Unfortunately 1 VA did not survive....
This is the last reported sighting of Ove (OH_DK) in Miners Park at Pine Creek.
Well it all started the day before when a few va's ignored the Danger sign and tresspassed where they shouldn't go....
I tell you, these virtual attendees really need to pay attention more!! ;o)
We had by now left Kakadu and were heading to Pine Creek - Gold Town. There were a few in our mob that were interested in Australian history and especially mining stuff. Oh btw, Pine Creek was the first Gold Rush town in the Northern Territory.
So here we are at Miners Park in Pine Creek.
After a wonderful burger meal at the local cafe Mayse's and washed down by a cold beer next door at the pub, we headed down the road for a squiz at the local history of Pine Creek.
Well if you're passing through the area then it's worth it to stop here and have a read about the Gold Rush history. Miners Park has a wealth of info and interesting old stuff to check out.
Well as I said before, OH_DK certainly didn't pay attention to the above warning and when we stopped at this sign for a photo shoot.....unfortunately Ove stepped back and fell down a mine shaft!
