    I was just thinking I might a wee bit of time off in a few months before the year ends, and I might go over to oz in October or November... I really would like meet up with a few you tpf ockers. However, i don't want go to the typical places and i'd really love to go to a place i haven't been before.

    It'd be cool to plan an aussie mystery tour and figure out a place in Oz where no tpf matey has gone before. I think planning it quite a few months ahead should be fine for those strapped for a few bob.

    Anyone game?

    kewlies, glad a few folks are interested!

    Mandapants, what is your schedule like? Fill me in on the details... I am really flexible when... I can wait till sometime is good for everyone who is keen meeting up:)

    :LOL:

    Well, i am game for anywhere, I was thinking about Victoria cause I have a friend in mel. I haven't seen in awhile, but just about any place in Oz country is fine with me. The only state i haven't been to is WA, but that seems ages away, but I hear Perth and the surrounds is nice.

    Though i've been, I really would mind doing the GOR either.

    Basically just throwing some ideas out there, so we can get a dialogue started.

    Also, if anyone is interested in jumping the pond, I can take some folks to some awesome sites around where I live too. I also haven't been to some areas of the south island, so if folks are keen for a kiwi adventure that would be cool too. also the kiwi dollar is cheaper than the aussie (last i checked)

    what'd ya think?

    Don't know about the Croc wrestling, but i have a really busy calender for a while.
    Saw the surgeon yesterday about my knee and says i have ruptured my ACL and messed up a medial ligament as well. Arthroscope soon and fingers crossed no reconstruction.
    An overnight trip to Pago Pago (American Samoa) on the 17th of this month.
    N.T. for 2 military exercises from late June till late late September (depending on the knee).

    Apart from that i think i'm reasonably free :)

    Oh and maybe 2 weeks at Nellis AFB (Nevada) in Oct. for another work trip....

    Theres a place on the gold coast that has glow worms... You have to walk for about 20mins to get to it - its in a cave - but its pretty cool....

    But when I went there were lots of tourists... Particularly japanese... Now I don't have anything against japanese - I just don't like people that talks LOTS when something is supposed to be a quiet, natural place - and japanese have a habit of doing that...

    Stradbroke Island is also coolies.
