Very well Howard, well above expectations Vicki and I only have to work because we want to not because we have to.
Yes Rick we have an appointment with the house builder on Tuesday.
We get the money early April then it's full steam ahead.
Still several trailer loads to move yet hope to be finished by 14th March.
Keith if the blitz isn't picked up before we move we will store it in a neighbours truck yard for safety.
Let the new adventures begin.

Hi Robert,
We had a record number of 269 vehicles booked in, inc. 111 Land Rovers and 87 jeeps. The pre-registered participants were 350. Many new people here at Corowa this year and a very successful event. You were missed!

cheers Richard

Thanks Rick and Richard.
Have limited access to internet at the moment, glad to hear of another success.
On a positive note I did get to catch up with a few collage friends most of them I hadn't seen for forty years.

That's good, now you can keep up with the news, only problem is it distracts you from other tasks....

cheers Richard

Vicki and I are looking forward to a completely new view in September 2019. We are booked on a 19 day tour in Canada, we plan to stay on and do a bit of driving when the rest of the tour flies home. Just looked at a map of Canada and it is going to take quite a bit of driving to see what is on our list. Looking forward to the challenges.

Back to square one with our new house, the builder went bust, so we are now getting quotes to build the same or very similar plan.

Hi Robert, Lucky to dodge the bullet there, We had a similar happening many years ago but it was the finance company with whom we were getting our loan through went bust. Re negotiated the loan with another mob but had to pay a higher % on the loan overall.
Are you able to access the 1st Home Owners Grant?

Regards to Vicky.

Sorry to hear about your builder - how disappointing!

I hope your tour of Canada will consist of going from blitz owner to blitz owner. They're a great bunch of folk there.

No grants for me Rick, I have already owned three houses even though I never bought any.
Yes Keith that is the plan once the initial tour is finished and the others fly home.

One more meeting with G J Gardner on Monday then the plans can go to council.
My new toy has finally arrived, 12 weeks late, so I can change the view myself now.

Hi Rick you asked how the house is going. It is a slow process unfortunately. The pad is ready and we finally have a construction certificate. Bricks, floor coverings, tiles and paint have all been chosen and priced. We will just get started and hit the twenty day Christmas shut so still a while before we are choosing furniture.
