Hey a huge thankyou to Bernie in Yeppoon for sorting out the return of my kite gear. Cheers mate.
AUS $126.00 is the cheapest It's ever been to post one way so well done Bernie. Is it ok for you to hang onto the other parcel/bar till next Easter Bernie? If not please give me a yell.
I always post my box a month ahead to allow for any delays and it includes spares etc, ready for our annual months pilgrimage over Easter in Yeppoon.
Then the world turned to shit and the wheels fell off with Covid 19.
Boy have I missed catching up with everyone and the beaches. It's left a big hole in my yearly planning.
I unpacked it straight away (when my wife picked it up from the post office today) and have put everything safely away.
I try hard to keep the weight down to less than 20kgs.
Included was my 19m2 ELF, 15m2 and my 7m2 R1's, all my 666 armour, Shin pads, Helmet, gloves, 2 white sports pressure T-shirts, 2 bars, spare lines, 3 soft kite dry bags, Peter lynn buggy dry bag (that I bought home to repair last year) , my kite repair kit with sticky-back ripstop in 6 colours, spare bridles, fids needles and speed-systems etc, full set of wheel and steering head bearings, grease, pliers and 2 pairs of sunnies. All fits into this box. The box is behind the orange R1. I enclose the contents within a double black "wheely bin" liner to protect it against moisture.
This cardboard box has now been across Australia 16 times and there and back to New Zealand for the "Moose meet". I think most of the Christmas stamps have now fallen off the stickytape covering. The post office uses up all of the previous Chrissy stamps on my box to get rid of them.
Anyway is was with a sad heart I put my gear back unused. But the positive thing is I'm in fantastic health.
Take care gang and keep safe.
Catch you next year. (Yes I've already booked the unit for a month.)
