Gosh, I wonder what it must be like to have such power, dizzying I would think, and quite addictive.  :roll:   :roll:

Thank you, Peter. I am reassured. Now all I have to do is wait for someone to take the Pisces:???::???:

Do you know how much they charge for US residents to cross into Canada, Phill? Almost as much as they charge the English to go down into Cornwall :mutley

An interesting theory Chris.  Unfortunately for you, it is just that - a "theory" ................unlike we Scots who have at least got our own parliament !! :cheers:cheers:cheers

As there hasn't been a post to the contrary,  I'm assuming Matilda is now heading north to MikeC and Aussietrains in Brisbane before heading off to Marty in Perth. :roll::roll::roll:

Liz should arrive in Brisbane herself about the same time as Matilda.  If I'd gone with her,  I could have been "in on the shoot" but someone has to stay behind to freeze and feed the dog !!!! :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

Not much point feeding it after freezing it, I think :mutley


Expecting Matilda here any day now. Just went out and put an ear to the rails, but nothing yet.

Matilda will have to travel just over 1000 kms further north from Mike C to Aussie Trains, she will then be loaded onto a special Qantas Jumbo for a 5,000 km trip to Perth.:mutley:mutley:mutley

Ooops - I knew I should have paid more attention in my geography lessons !!  I have no idea where Mackay is John and assumed, from earlier comments, that it was around the Brisbane area.  About half way between there and Cairns it seems. :oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:

Maybe Liz could bring it afterall - she's also going up to Cairns......................:lol::lol::lol::lol:

I've just been doing some forward planning - I know, it's rare but there you are !!

There are potentially a couple of time-slot problems with Matilda's voyage so I'd appreciate your help in pushing her along as fast as possible.

The problem areas are:

She needs to be in Buenos Aires between March 16th and April 7th.

She needs to be with John Dew in Vancouver either before April 20th or between May 1st and July 1st

She needs to drop in to UK for Novice to take out to Liberia around mid May and will probably be "in transit" for 2 weeks or more depending on how the postal services are coping with Novice's roads in Monrovia.

I suppose it won't matter if she criss-crosses the globe rather than taking the most direct route but it would be easier if she just went around in a logical manner.

I'll post an update on my proposed route when I've had another think over a new bottle tonight - when the cat's away........................:roll::roll::roll:
