    5 weeks to go

    I am off to Aussie in the first week of October, I was meant to be going at the end of October to start a job driving chaser bins for the wheat harvest but got an offer today for an opportunity to be trained in driving a combine and for more money than what I would have been gettingso I jumped on it and pulled out with the other contractor where I would not have had this opportunity to be trained. So I will be off to Toowomba and my feet are really getting itchy to jump the ditch.

    I'm a long way from there brother. Right on the NT border in the desert. Do spend some time in Brisvegas though.

    Finishing this contract in a month and might be around T-ville for a few months


    (T-ville meaning Townsville. Not Toowoooomba)

    Good luck with the shift to the other side. Aussie shielas are great until they open their gob and speak.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded

    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Rushy I am only going for 12 weeks and then coming back till I get more work to do over there as I kind of like the idea of working for a couple of months then come home and then buger off again if I get called back. I am going to have a laptop and mobile internet with me so I can still hassle you buggers from over there plus keep in contact with my missus through skype.

    Should try line up a job in the UK driving combines. I spent two seasons driving Claas Lexion 580 and a brand new 600 the last season. Still 40 foot header but much much heavier crops and fields are a reasonable size that don't cause you to fall asleep. That was before I realised you got much better looking girls driving the tourist buses in Europe than at the pubs in England.
