Agree, it's an Ad that hits the nail on the head.
Cheers

Sold our 82 Jayco Swan today.
A young family, local
We have owned it since early 09, 14 years of great memories, some 16K km's.
All the kids have left home, living their dreams, no need for it.
We have a hard floor rear pull over that works great for us now. Later next week we will pack it up, load the Criuser, and spend a week on the road.
No time frame, no plan.

So here's a trivia question for those of you in NSW, but anybody else can play if they wish!

"Are there more roads in the city or in the bush? More precisely: is the total length of roads in all the cities and towns more or less than the total length of all the roads that run between the cities and towns?"

& then

"By how much?" (5x, 10x, 100x ...)

Answers tomorrow! ;D

I left it a bit longer in case of more entries, but none :'(

But anyway, the envelope please!

(Drum roll!)

& the winner is ... Country by 4x! :-)

Yes, of course, the figures are a bit rubbery in some ways & based on arbitrary decisions on where town stops & so on, but the actual numbers that the bloke came up with are:

City roads in NSW = 40,721k

Country roads = 168,775k!

Here's the full article to have a read of: https://little-maps.com/2023/01/09/city-or-the-bush-where-are-the-most-roads/

So sorry, Pottsy, you missed out!

So young Jack has screwed his rear dif.
Breather got ripped off, sucked a bucket load of dirty water.
To his credit, only using the Gregory's manual we bought him when he first got it, he has pulled it out, replaced a heap of stuff, a good mate is checking it over.
Saturday morning, it'll get put back together.
Hasn't asked for coin,
Hasn't asked for help.
But he didn't ask to do it in front of the shed ;)

Just been told, Jack's moving back home, :O
Yeah I know, you warned me,
they Always Come back.
On a positive, he's looking at a FIFO apprenticeship, taking over his time.
Seriously, any kid these days that says they can't get work, they are not applying themselves.
Many of Jack's mates, have taken the leap and now are enjoying good coin, improving their work skills & enjoying life.
I guess no different to when I was 18, bouncing from one job to another.

Listening to the rain pouring down last night & the storm flashing & banging, while reading BoM:

75% chance of up to 0mm

50% chance of up to 0mm

25% chance of up to .5mm

Rain since 9AM: 16.2mm ...

Finished up with 34.25mm, which made the pool much happier ;D
