    Hi chopper65

    we were in Tassy last year, loved it, especialy shefield. Being a fellow sandgroper, living in Perth burbs, the contrast of the green to our dry and parched landscape was something of dreams.

    Good luck to you on your most wonderful adventure.

    I hope the 30 mil lotto draw this saturday spills out your way, to fast track your journey. your passion is awsome. :tup: :clap::D
