Well, really coming for work but I hope to visit a few places.

The end of September I fly into Adelaide and will be working in Strathalbyn. I have no idea what there will be to do but I am excited.

I am a little disappointed it is your winter. I really wanted to dive but I think the water may be a bit cold.

Any members near where I will be working ? Would be nice to say hello to another.

Sometimes, even now,
when I'm feeling lonely & beat
I drift back in time & I find my feet

I had never heard of the place. What type of work brings you out there?

The end of September is not winter in Oz. It is mid-spring.

Will almost be summer, and those waters are Great White waters...stay on sand.

Good news is that there are four pubs in town.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

I work for a company that manufactures a machine that takes city pressure and boosts it up to 90000 psi. Couple our machine with a CNC controlled 3-5 axis table and you can cut many substrates. I install the equipment and do training while onsite.

Water jet cutting?

There is a company in Griffith that does that with steel, they advertise on television.

Did you ever find your new techs for the Ohio area? If you are headed this way, I'm sure we could find a pool game and some beers.

the only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker, is observation. all the same data is present for both. The rest, is understanding what you're seeing.

No luck yet. I may have to conjure up a job in Ohio. Are you no, so or central ?

BTW, I suck at pool but beer drinking I can do.

Highly recomend the greatvwhite shark dive in Port Lincon


I only work to hunt, I hunt to live, the family fits in and the dog is at my right hand.
I was a proud Dad the day my Son nailed a Buffalo with his first shot out of my 06 at 11yrs old.

Well, I made it after weather issues in DFW caused outright cancellations Saturday.
Got in Sydney at 6am this morning ( along with numerous other flights). Flooded the customs area , then they lost my toolbox and they redflagged me for my golf shoes that had grass and dirt on them. All This caused me to miss my flight to Adelaide so here I sit.

The A380 -800 is a big a$$ airplane. It was a nice smooth flight of 16 hrs. The premium economy is pretty nice. I was I. The upper deck right behind Business class. My ticket was $4200, business was almost twice that and first was 12-14k I think.

Monarto is not far from Strathalbyn and there is a range complex there with several different clubs shooting a variety of types of competition - rifle, pistol and shotgun. This weekend (practice starts Thursday, events run Fri-Tues) the SSAA Rifle Metallic Silhouette National Championships and BPCR RMS Championship will be hosted by the Monarto Metallic Silhouette Rifle Club. You are welcome to come out and have a look. If you turn up ask for me (Ian) - should be easy to find as I'm one of the main coordinators of the event. More info is available at www.monartomsrc.org.au

It has been a good week. Got a lot of work done. Saw some sights and stayed out of jail. I played golf yesterday in Adelaide, visited the Harley store for some goodies and walked all around downtown Adelaide.

One thing I will miss is the bakery downtown Strathalbyn. Every morning I had a meat pie 🥧 of some sort, chocolate milk and a coke to go for later in the day. I think I could live on meat pies. Lol

It seems so simple but after spending all your life expecting traffic to be a certain way, you really have to be cognizant of the change when you cross a street. A few times I had close calls.

Goodbye Australia, maybe we will meet again.

Geez, that visit was short and sweet. By the way, curry meat pies are best.
