Monitoring from Melbourne - Nov 30 2010

As anticipated, the month has ticked over to December, and it is now
officially summer here in Victoria!

Looks set for a good season of bushwalking, coastal hiking, water action,
and Alpine exploration!

shortpath from Asia, Africa, Europe, and Middle East, and my spectrum
