    Gulf Air

    Same, no drinks on board is a NONO for me.
  3. They ARE a pain for most of them, yes. Including their loud mouthed women....
  4. Hahaha, no damage in South Bali.
  5. The thing just blew a few hours ago.... Ash cloud drifting West to Java (passing above the jungle house..but I didn't tell the Miss) Bali airport still operating, just heard a flight take off. Allah be with us ! JD for prayers....
  6. Believe it or not, Blimbingzari (Banyuwangi) airport was closed as well as Jember ! Anyway , going by road on.Tuesday ! Exactly !
  7. A site where one can watch the evolution of the ash cloud is the Darwin Volcanish Ash Advisory http://www.bom.gov.au/info/vaac/advisories.shtml Select "AGUNG" and see the expected evolution. Time is Zulu time. Volcano location is indicated, airport is located near the tip on the South, about 60 km from the airport. Airport closure all depends on the winds.

    Looking For A Roofer

    That was the original roof when the house was build by the Missus mom many moons ago, and with limited resources I suppose at the time. The rebuild.is in one of my previous building report

    Looking For A Roofer

    I noticed that here in Indo they are also switching to the metallic structure. Call me old dynosaure, but I like it the traditionnal wood way. I dont really agree with the 2 sections needing to be separate. IMO (but I am not a pro) the important is the slope. If the angle of the upper roof is higher than the one of the lower roof (usually an extension or covered terasse) the water from the upper part arrive at a higher velocity then what it can achieve on the lower (less angled) roof. So it creats a slown down of the flow, and likely an overflow on the junction of the tiles. Roof inclinations in France are reglementated according to the region and its climat. Hence very steep angles in the mountain (to avoid snow accumulation) and steeper angles in the regions with important rains than in"dry" regions. And of cause the gutters and drains need to be calculated to be able to absorb the max rainfall (mm/h per sq m translated in l/min) of the region. Hence it always surprises me they make flat roofs in places with a high rain monsoon season .

    Yep mate. This was what we found after "in depth" inspection. Look at the right of the parabola antenna. Only one solution, redo the whole thing.

    Yes to all the above. The different angle junction between 2 roof sections will not help. Clean them would already help.to improve the water flow, and allow to inspect which ones are broken. Did you had a look under the tiles at the wood structure ? I had a major issue with this at the jungle house.

    Building a house in Thailand

    With some books, and being a bit older 10 to 15 days in the jungle is doable. Knowing I have my area, and my interaction with family and locals is minimal. Food for 2 weeks is easy to bring over, but still a very limited range of menus. And no way I will eat the local "stuff". Always very happy to be back on the sea in Bali with proper civilization. Maybe will start a chapter.on my thread on this subject... Because Bali being a island, live will tend to become boring here pretty fast as well.

    Auto modding

    Yeah, yeah, I know.... you're not wrong. One law for all.. Agreed. But its the way its done that bothers me a bit. A bit delicate to explain in details and publicly.
