sorry mate, but its too hard to get it there and then to get it back has been a problem in the past too....
my previous 2 travellers have made it to Vic and I was hoping to get the 'dim-SIM' down there also but transport is the issue and I aint paying for couriers again....sorry, maybe next time if transport from fellow surfers can be arranged..... 8)

might be able to help with getting it from the Goldy to Torquay.
A workmate goes there fairly regularly, will probably be there in mid-late January and again around Easter (for pick up?)

Thanks Boo, that'd be unreal, but I do recognise the might. I'm a couple hours west of Torquay, but would jump at the chance. Hatchman's also showed strong interest, but he's on the Mornington Peninsula. It's my old surfing territory and I still have links there so I reckon we could work something out.

but the boards in Shell Harbour, not at the Goldy....stoked you are that keen and I know Hatchy has always had a go and been involved but I reckon he'd be the first to agree, a 5'2" is gunna be a bit too little for his liking....next time..... 8) its not just getting it there, its getting it back....

yeah, I get that, but you were talking about getting it back from Capt Caveman in the new year.

Anyway, I was just presenting a potential other option, which included getting it back. If you've sold it already and want to wait till next time then that's fine. The option will still be there.
I also go to WA a couple of times a year.

Thanks guys. Whatever will be, will be. However, I can take advantage of my employers as far as couriering back to Qld - and I'm a good board packer. Need to be so as to combat all couriers who can't read the word Fragile. Must be a prerequisite for getting such a job. Anyone remember the start of Pet Detective?

I'm still keen

I dropped the Quadfather back off on the Goldie last time - lucky I guess because it conincided with a conference I was attending there.

Priddy,
I could get it from Sydney via Newcastle then as far up as Forster/tuncurry. Even might be able to fly it back up home (Sunny Coast) X-mas/NYE time?
Even more tighter time frame have mate (from Currimundi) coming down weekend (2nd-5th Dec) that might be able to fly it back to Coast.
Let me know if any of that blows any wind up ya skirt??
Benno
