Goodaye all. Currently at Sydney airport waiting for a flight back to Dubbo after attending the Australian Trucking Association Convention in Perth. It has been a few years since I attended one, but this year […]
Goodaye all. A big week this week, slow to start and then running all the way till the end. Lots of rain, lets hope my request for a rain dance and the issues of the drought helped it happen. You have to take the […]
24/3/2019 Goodaye all. I read “Dust to Dust” again and enjoyed it again. There are not that many books you can read again after only a week and do that. I don’t know that I really picked up any more, or that I […]

Goodaye to those of you joining. I really welcome your support and look forward to making a difference over time. Please introduce yourselves in the members forum so that all have a bit of an idea of you and first request, what do you want from the club? Safe Travelling, Rod Hannifey.
