Hi Eric
Bit further North of Brisbane, Sunshine Coast Area.

Coolum, Noosa and Moolooaba fantasic area better beach's than Gold Coast and a lot more laid back.

One of my favorite areas.

Regards
John

Or you could just go to Toolangi. LOL.

I thought of Noosa ect . Just a little to far, but haven't ruled it out .

As far as Tolangi lol . I forgot to tell you John , on the Wombat weekend , Con & Greg ventured out there , lucky Con fitted the winch the night before lol . Major recovery lol .

The story goes like this .

they came across a track were there were heaps of 4bys sitting on the edge , the boys got out and asked what was going on . One of the other crew answered , were just looking at how dangerous this trackis today , only a mad man would atempt it . Gregs reply , is your winch working well Con? Con >>> I think so Greg , Eric tested it. Greg>>>> Ok then ill give it a go .......

The rest is history , The winch did work well . Now both sill panels are matching lol

Hi Eric
Noosa area not that much further than the Gold Coast, and as said a real special place.
I stayed at the Novatel Twin Waters Resort near Maroochedore (Spelling) just great, your missus would love it.

Toolangi with Con and Co sounds like fun the boys need to be carefull one day they might not be so lucky.

Well we now know that Greg is mad , I asked him if this has slowed him down , his answer was no , but I think I need a roll cage . Tom is also looking at getting a GQ basha , I think he wants to retire the Rangi from Toolangi type trips . I am looking for a high Km 100 series for can also , he wants to transplant all the hard core stuff to it and put the GXL back to standard . I asked why , His answer was , I want to have fun like Greg lol . They also mentioned that they would go back without me . They finaly realised that it good to have so much recovery gear lol & I would bring Peter , who cooks a mean barby ( I am sure Muddy would agree ) ROFLMAO

Come to Sth Oz Beachport, Robe area, York Peninsula is surrounded by beaches and you may be able to get some personal attention in our home paddock, Whyalla, Arno Bay, Tumby Bay and Pt Lincoln, or Start at Ceduna and work your way back through Streaky Bay and Elliston, or Coffins Bay and Lincoln Nat. Park. All great beach locations, see you at xmas.

We did York Peninsula area just before xmas a few years ago and have to agree with Pesty that it is a great holiday place and safe for the kids and the people were great too except when I won their chook raffle one night at Tumby Bay.

I've seen Eric at work. Even a schooner of West End would be over paying him. Send him off to Roachie's turf. It will suit all his needs. (Yorkes that is)
