    Default Anyone need something taken from Mel to Syd?

    In a week or so I'm heading up to Chateau Proffi to pilfer his collection of Fuego bits.
    If anyone needs something (legal) taken up to Sydney I'm happy to throw it in the back (within reason :-))
    Let me know by PM.

    No. Just a flying visit. Got to pick up some bits for another car near Golburn and then on to Sydney and then back to Melbourne.

    No. No work car...although it would be a bit quicker....

    Was good to catch up with jo proffi and put a face to a name. Was quite amusing when jo arrived in his RX4 and drove up his driveway winding it out in gear. My mate has looked at me and said, "That must be him. He drives like you."

    Got some good bits and pieces for the Fuego and dropped off a Gearbox to another member enroute, so was a good trip.

    Now it's time for bed.

    Today was a "mild" day for traffic by my observed standards. I left Château Proffi early this morning and was immediately ensnared in nose-tail grind but for the most part things kept moving.

    Glad to hear you have made it home safely.

    It is interesting the mental image one forms of a person after a decade of reading their posts.

    I was expecting a serious military type personality, and clearly (to anyone who knows mistareno) that was a very wrong impression.
    I dont think I've met too many Af's who's person has matched my mental image of them.


    Good to have met you mistareno, and glad I could to pass on some of my stash.

    I think I may have to revise my posting technique. I think most serious military types would be offended.

    Probably good I had my mate with me, otherwise I'd probably still be there crapping on about Fuegos....

    Default Pays to have a good map and navigator and prepared route.

    Richard

    I should have given you a copy of my map progression to Jo's place, its been a pretty easy run out to his abode and Sydney Fuego heaven (Haven) and then a good run back to Victoria, keeping out of tunnels and other obstructions most any time of day.

    You just get to marvel at the driving habits of the Sinny Cities best/worst drivers, much like you might strike in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne heading to Epping etc.

    My navigator is very good at her mapwork as long as I set out the change of maps, and on the way back we just reverse the map sequel back to the Hume Highway

    She is also good at noting the best fuel prices, at preferred service stations, so each fill is very economical.

    The rest is easy. (Well for me the driver..)

    Ken
