    Re: Intra-provincial travel

    The volumes of people with trailers and overland rigs coming through Harties every weekend seems to imply zero restrictions between GP and NW.

    Re: Preserving tyres

    You need to put them in a temperature and humidity controlled environment and seal them in non-permeable plastic.
