Australia TravelSmart Club member winners -
New member signed up for October:
Hayman Reese Hitch Pin Lock winner is John and Linda Kelly Rooty Hill New South Wales.
Rooty Hill is a suburb of Western Sydney about 45 km from the CBD. The puzzling name is said to relate to the problems tree roots caused when Governor Philip Gidley King literal struck trouble while trying to establish the foundations of Government House on Norfolk Island. On his return to NSW a hill in Blacktown brought back the Norfolk Is experience and was named accordingly.
GoSee uses the Hayman ReeseHitch Pin Lock to protect our Hayman Reese Weight Distribution shanks on all our towing vehicles. GoSee has also evaluated a Hayman Reese Weight Distribution Hitch (WDH) holder which uses the Hitch Lock Pin to secure it to the A frame of caravans. The WDH holder keeps the towing shank safe and out of the way when we are camped.
GoSee sponsor Hayman Reese plays a big part in supporting the free GoSee TravelSmart Members Club benefits.

TechniIce HDR use in sheets or cut off separate cubes
Six sheets of TechniIce HDR $39.95 INCL postage. The winner is Gary Hindmarsh of Abermain New South Wales.
Abermain is about 8 km from Cessnock in the Hunter Region on the border of the 2257 hectares Werakata National Park. The national park is home to the threatened Squirrel Glider, Grey-headed Flying Fox, Regent Honey Eater and Swift Parrot.
TechniIce is a high-tech multi-purpose product that can be used as either a sheet of ice or a heat pack. It comes in a light, flat sheet that expands into a 24-cell ice pack by just adding water. When used as recommended, TechniIce stays frozen for days - six times longer than ice and three times longer than gel packs and most other ice packs when used in the same volumes.
Besides a cold pack TechniIce also doubles as a heat pack. The same sheet of Techniice can be used as both a hot pack and cool pack. Designed in Australia, TechniIce has become a big hit with outdoor enthusiasts. Established 26 years ago, it was only in recent years that Global National Australia (the company behind the TechniIce Company and their 5-16 day Iceboxes, Esky and reusable dry icepacks) decided to make their commercial quality outdoor products available to the public.
It was a ground-breaking decision for a traditionally 'trade only' company that is the supplier of commercial/industrial outdoor gear to an array of government departments and some of the worlds biggest organisations in over 38 countries from defence to airlines.
Now there is a range of outdoor products of high quality for about half the price typical in many retails outlets.
The quality of the products, from their military style swags and heavy duty trunk locker tool boxes to their quick release tie down ratchets, quick release fishing rod holders and ice boxes make these better than average for outdoor needs.
