Can recall a hilarious episode where group of mates go away for a weekend flyfishing trip.

Crossing a tranquil stream on the way in a 4WD wagon Friday evening they are full of anticipation of being on the water in the morning under such idyllic conditions. Of course once ensconced in their hut it begins to hose down continuing until the morning & beyond until the hitherto tranquil stream is a raging torrent & impassable even in a 4 wd.

Rain continues right thru to Thursday before easing but even so going to take a day or two to subside enough to drive out, meantime cabin fever has well & truly set in resulting in constant conflict.

With virtually nothing to do one guy finds a paperback novel which he begins reading but his fellow unfortunates bar one the 4wd owner, insist the book belongs equally to all so after much resistance from the book holder it is finally agreed they could share by each reading one chapter at a time.

As time slowly wears on they are all due to finish the final chapter when the non reader goes to heed the call of nature notes there is no toilet paper left so improvises with ( you guessed it ) using the back pages which almost leads to a homocide.

Finally the floodwater drops enough to drive out only to discover when everyone is packed up eagerly waiting to go that the driver had been thru the week had been using the amateur on board radio to unsuccessfully make contact with the outside world & the battery was almost dead flat without enough power left to start the motor !

In the closing scene am pretty sure a homocide was about to happen.

Anyone know where I could buy / borrow or steal a copy be it a vid tape, dvd or via the internet or whatever ????????????
Who knew what time it was when the first clock was made? Or for that matter what day it was or how old you were ?
