Leave a tribute

⁣My dear friend
I am sad not to be there today - to support Dawn (DJ) Kimmy and Jenny (JB)
My best years were with Skid !!
Mid 1980's - 90's
We spent many weeks/years in camp - (most of which were supplied by NZ Rail as Skid as designer - builder)
If Syd had put pen to paper with his yarns and stories - he would have given Crump a run for his money :-)
RIP - my dear friend - I will never forget you and we will catch up one day.
Crack open a beer when you see me coming up that "bush track" up there where are no doubt already entertaining other retired bush dwellers with yarns and stories

I am so very sad to hear of Syds passing. Special memories always with so much laughter. You are all in my thoughts with love across the globe. I am sorry I can't be there with you to see Syd off on this fishing trip. RIP you good bugger xxx
