The time has come to get ready to hit the road again after living with the "Outlaws" for the past 5 & 1/2 weeks.
My last day in the Army is tomorrow and it _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx to a close 13 years of service, all of it enjoyable and I am only leaving due to circumstances beyond my control (Spinal Fusion :)) ).

Sam and I are off to Calliope from down town Woolgoolga early Monday morning to move into our new house (rental), we are leaving the 2 kids with the outlaws for a week.
We hope to be back in Woolgoolga on the 27th to pick the kids up to take them up to the Calliope.

The removalists turn up on Thursday and they think that they can unload 2 x 20' containers worth of furniture in the day, as well as unpack all the boxes (this I want to see). We then have 2 days to set the house up ready for the kids.

For the trip up on Monday there will be Darkie towing the trailer and Sam in the X Trail.
We are going to drive Darkie back down to pick the kids up, possibly with the trailer again (due to all the X mas presents the kids got LOL).

So if you see me or Darkie over the next couple of weeks somewhere on the road (going coast road the whole way) come over and say G'Day.

Cheers Kev

Have a good trip Kev!, Leaving the kids behind sounds exciting for about 20ks, then the emotions set in, been there!, These furniture guys don't muck about eh!, but Gentley Bentley with some things is a must though. Hows the Toyo, will there be regular smoke signals up the highway,or what...lol. ( NO offence)

Cheers Axle.

The regular smoke signals will be my new way of contributing to the form, keep a look out and transcribe them on here for me LOL

We are used to leaving the kids behind, but this will be the longest stint for the youngest, so it should be interesting.

Cheers Kev

The best thing about Diggers Arms is that it is just a close stumble to home ha ha
