We have a day sailing back to Melbourne. On Monday we fly to NZ for 4 weeks catch up with familyand friends. The van and car will be stored at Ashley Gardens Caravan Park, in Melbourne, which isn’t too far from the airport. We have loved our time in Tasmania, and could have stayed longer, there are still plenty of walks, waterfalls, and beaches we haven’t had time to explore, especially in the north east.
We felt very “at home” here. Our caravan has now travelled 6, k in the 6 months we have been living in it, in Tasmania. Our car has clocked up 18, since we bought it. From Bridport we drove to Georgetown and up to Low head lighthouse, at the entrance to Port Dalrymple. We crossed the Tamar River to Beaconsfield, and visited the gold mine museum there. This is where the mine collapse trapped the 3 men some years ago. There was a replica of the cage the two men who survived were in. After a night at Kelso, nearby, where we saw wildlife including wombats and possums after dark, we visited a very good platypus Mersy River below, this is near the town of Mole Creek.

Take time to get the cable and fittings you need when you can afford to Slab: Don’t forget about stumps, cheaper and just as good for a small home. Need water too don’t forget. You may need help clearing the topsoil back, moving it away from the foundation and to box up the area but to do the slab yourself should only take days at most with 2 people. Remember you may need to lay some pipes down before you get to work on the concrete slab.
Externally, it may be worth looking into C-bond panels: Internally, Gyprock is definitely the way to go for the walls and ceiling. Should be easy to place with a timber frame, i have no idea about a steel frame though? Easy enough to get it down and done. Can get enough wood from Bunnings or from elsewhere to do the whole home.

This custom possibly dates from the Romans, who had a habit of placing coins on the mouth of a person when being buried so that he might pay his fare to Charon when ferried across the Styx.
A disappearing gun, a gun mounted on a disappearing carriage, is an obsolete type of artillery which enabled a gun to hide from direct fire and observation.

Some of the crew ran with me again in There were 50 ratings making up the crew, plus all the back room staff, with 18 members in each of the ‘A’ and ‘B’ crews, the others were reserves.

If we got stuck, then everyone piled into the back of us and there was a big snarl up. Thankfully it didn’t happened to our crew at Devonport or Earls Court.
