My Montana turns off routinely. Seems that there is only so many operations it can handle in a row. About 200 is my guess.

In Burnside South Australia if you park within 3m of a single continuous white line you will get a $75 parking fine. :shock: Near Amphibian central there is pole with a sign marking the end of the No Parking zone.

Re: Three states in a day

FF clues in MEL have moved 50m south. Who says wooden statues can't move. Someone must have blinked. Cache page has been updated with new MEL coords.
