Have found this site and have joined just in the nick of time. I am due to retire on 13 Sept - day before the election. Without being partisan I glad I wont be in the 'department' on 16 Sept.

Love travelling this country and have done it for years - both for work and for pleasure but need to get rid of the Honda and get a Prado and CT (used) to expand our horizons.

On a big learning curve and I have spent every day reading all of the great advice and stories on ExploreOz.

Welcome Terry, yes there is a heap of very useful info on this site, it certainly helped my wife & I when we first bought a caravan to do a bit of travelling & saved us heaps of $$$s in drawing on the knowledge of experienced people.

Pity about having to sell the Honda though. Do you mind me asking why on earth you would buy a Toyota? Maybe a Nissan would satisfy your needs a bit better? Well worth considering, I think. :)

Anyway what ever your decision, enjoy your retirement and happy & safe travelling. Cheers

Welcome to the Forum Terry.
Done a lot of good things in my lifetime but "Retirement" is probably the best.

Yep, get a Prado or whatever and expand those "horizons".

There are plenty of members on this forum who will be only too happy to help with any questions you may have. Just ask. All the best.

Cheers
Allan

Welcome aboard Terry. Retired in 2005 myself and we have been to some great places and still more to go.

Also in Canberra. Southside.

G'day Terry

A good move to join exploroz.

We have a used Jayco Outback Eagle sitting in the Classifieds section, and while I'm guessing you are wanting something a little more upmarket, I believe in the old adage of never letting a chance go by. We are in Macgregor.

Probably a dumb thing for a would-be seller to say, but I'm advised that the pre-loved market is very flat at the moment, so whatever you get, you are entering a buyer's market. Good luck with your purchases, and with the retirement experience.

Cheers
John

Nice to have you on board Terry, and never let the truth get in the way of a good story I say. Did you hear the one about....................

Suggest you also check out PradoPoint for all the info you need on that vehicle.
