    I am not in Hobart @Flea, wife is. I having holiday from her lol. I declined to go as we now have two dogs and a cat. When I looked at the local cattery I said no thanks.

    One of our dogs is also quite old now and going over 1000 km round trip is not good for her. So I stayed home.

    As to Conditional contracts, brother was in similar situation. He got fed up. He owned his property outright. Got a 1st mortgage to the value of his property, bought his new cheaper property in rural Vic, put tenants into his unsold property with a for sale clause, that covered the mortgage. When his house sold, paid out mortgage.

    Lol complicated, yeah well it was pretty damn complicated for us also when we bought this place. If ever we decide to rent it out it will never be a private rental but through an agent.

    Just watch out for those road trains, their air slip stream will blow you of the road and if you ain't got a CB radio I strongly suggest you get one. Mobile phone reception can be tricky. I used a Satellite Phone last time went. 4 years ago aprox.

    That's what they all say Flea, once you're under the spell you are at the mercy of the treeless plain. I always stop at the 10k peg and head down the track about 2 k's as far as you can drive then set up camp for a few days. you can walk down to the water and some fantastic sand dunes. I found a beautiful fossil of a nautilus shell along the cliff edges there.

    Just relaying my experience @emu. I too enjoyed the treeless plain, looking forward to doing it again one day if the wife wants to go that far. Mind you the ferry to the mainland with a caravan is bloody expensive. By the time you pay for that, its cheaper to fly to WA. but alas you do not see nature at its best.:shrug:

    I'm not outlaying all that money for a day & a half use.
    I'll stick my leg out on the highway with my thumb in the air.

    :rofl:

    Memo: Big sun hat and plenty of water.

    My last trip was two weeks and I would not be without a cb in any rural area in any state.

    I've never seen the toll things in WA either.

    You reminded me to get a rebate for my Qld thingy.
    It was there for the odd trip to Brissie airport.

    Yeah, WA like Tassie is civilised. @Flea , Tasweegans might give job preferences to locals than mainlanders, but our cops are fantastic and quite a few are vapers. Wife got stopped for speeding. Cop saw me vaping, he was fascinated by the Vape. We spent more time talking about Vapes than the speeding infringement. Wife let off with warning, cop now a vape.

    I had a building and pest inspection on the house today,
    for the lady who wants to buy.
    I built the house 32 years ago, built the deck about 15 years ago.
    Extra wide timber deck for entertaining. ground level at the front about 10 foot high at the back. Around two sides of the house.

    Green protected posts, bearers & joists. Hardwood decking. Built by a good builder and good mate.
    I have oiled the decking every second year.

    The building inspector told the prospective buyer that the deck had used up it's life span.

    What is the life expectancy of a timber deck ?

    :wall:
