So it's finally happened ... well done!!!

Why can't you keep the Kedron? Seems a shame to let it go ... didn't you have it custom built?

Laughing Well hello to all, yes it has been a long time but it has been non stop after the move. WOW we love the new life and Scole yes even without the van, the worst part is we have a Big4 park only about 150mts away from the front door and every day i drive to work and home i get to see all the nice caravans and some horrible ones Evil or Very Mad .

I must say the fresh air, clean air and water is so good where we are in the village of Hadspen is very friendly & clean, the river down the road is always flowing and i mean flowing, after living in Brisbane all my life it is wonderfull to be somewhere like where i grew up and people say hello and have a chat when walking down the street or even people see you in the front yard when they are walking past and they stop and introduce them selves and have a chat. The kids have all settled in very nicely and Alexandra 16 was the biggest worry now even has a boyfriend and starts colledge next week and now plans to be a Police officer down here (a hugh relief).

As for my job with the Launceston Council well it is turning out to be a bit bland and not very challenging, i make suggestion for changes for things that we found in Brisbane worked beter another way after doing what we are doing now, more of streamlinning things and making iit easier for the staff to function more effectivly and i get told "ah no we tried that and it didnt work or no we can do that" ??????? it is very fustrating. So iam still looking for the rite chance to either manage or if we can buy a motel or caravan park.

So all in all iiam back and it looks like nearly all the old usuals are still posting.

A life without a van is not even worth contemplating Mark ... Wink

Good to read you're enjoying yourself even if the Taswegians won't listen to you ... geek

Are you doing any camping trips or day trips in the 4wd? I guess that's one good thing about Tassie it only takes a few hours to get from one end to the other.

Good to see you're enjoying yourself!

cheers

LOL yeah but there are lovely places with cabins down here to go to you can not take a van so there is a trade off Wink

No mate no camping trips yet but have done a few day trip, i would say one of the best is the high country past the lakes, bloody beautifull scenery and the lakes are quite big with a few fishing villages set up around them. We are thinking of having our first holiday at a quiet little place named Greens Beach with a very nice caravan/cabin park so we will get a cabin for a couple of weeks next summer. Deb did a day trip to Hobart when her mother was down over Xmas and it was only a 2hr drive down LOL they funny thing is Launceston natives dont do a day trip to Hobart because its too far thats a weekend trip LOL and another thing thats interesting some people from Launceston have never even been to Devonport, Bernie or Hobart in their lives Shocked they say they couldnt do a trip that far then i tell them where we have traveled in the past and a couple wouldnt believe me LOL

That's the same as the UK. Ppl don't believe you drive 800k in a day. They fly or don't bother going.

I wonder how long it will take before you find it difficult to travel 2 hrs? You're not getting any younger you know ... Razz Laughing
