Cheers mate.

I've just been in contact with the hospital and I've been told emergency wait time for surgery is five to six months.

The last two days the pain has been so overwhelming that I have had no choice but to med up. I'm really worried how my body and mind will cope with the abuse these drugs dish out just to help me get by.

It's time to source a more healthy option. I'm gonna look for some oil from a certain plant and use this regularly. Gotta be better than synthetic pain killers.

With such a wait we're gonna need a house so we are looking at Gympie. I need to be a short distance from a toilet and I can't see me living full time in the bus without the mental pain becoming to much for my family. So I'm hoping to be in a house in two weeks tops.

Let the fun begin

Braithy, that seems to have a lot of tail rocker. Do you agree, or is it an optical illusion?

All part and parcel of the 'if it feels like a fat pig' rule, Cranked. You've gotta counteract all of those crutches that they put in for the disabled like the wide straight planshape and the low rocker

Picked up these two Wayne lynch's just before Chrissy. 6'6 hadn't been used and cost me $300. 6'8 hardly used but still got to fix a tiny bit of tail damage up, the guy gave me for free :mrgreen: .
Just cos.

yeah it has a fair bit. low entry rocker coming out high at the back. super refined rails and a deep single coming into a shallow double.

it's basically a MR twin with more tail lift, forward wide point and refined rails
