    Just saw an ad on telly... John Muir will be on Andrew Dentons show 9 30 Monday Night on the ABC.

    I assume it's our John Muir from "How to Keep Your VW alive forever??

    Phill.

    That just shows how indoctrinated into the Kombi Mentality you are Phill. Automatically thinking of the dear departed John Muir.

    I love it! :D

    Guess that will be a ratings hit for Denton if he pulls it off

    ....there's gotta be a smutty joke in that! :D

    I am hoping that, if it isn't the VW John Muir, it is the John Muir that founded the Sierra Club, one of the US's most influential conservationist groups... Wikipedia claims he died in 1914 but we all know how inaccurate that reference can be... :D

    john Edwards from the crossing over show is in Oz right now, maybe he will be on and be channeling all John Muir incarnations on the one show.

    And without wanting to upset John Muir Fans, if he couldnt keep himself alive forever, how could he be sure his kombi was going to be?

    Andrew Denton, John Muir and John Edwards walked into a bar...

    This could turn into a song for the chasers!

    Glow Monkey... You make me laugh, I can imagine the process involved in a human stripdown and rebuild!!

    I got the last 5 minutes of the interview and was reallly dissappointed i missed it. he sounded very interesting....any chance of a copy of the I/V Brewmaster in some form??
    I liked his reference about being spoken to by the earth when sleeping in the desert....and having it confirmed by an Aboriginal friend...

    It was quite interesting. I remembered seeing his footage of the trek across Oz some time ago while watching the show.

    It was captivating to watch the struggle, I balled my eyes out... there are some really powerfull scenes. I'm not sure where you would find it though, I think the ABC showed it.

    Phill.
