Welcome Jason and Family,
Check out the forum for off roading. Hope you find what you are looking for. We feed T/TTT addictions here and encourage excesses.

However our second addiction is pictures. Lots of pictures, and we have a Mad enforcer. :lol:

Hi Jason, Glad to hear that the "trouble and strife" and the "Tin lids" are as interested as you in this addiction. :thumbsup: Ask away and get used to sending photos for all of us.
If you are interested in offroad, Mike has just set up an Offroad section on the forum. Early days yet but a lot of info will be posted there.
Cheers
Paul :thumbsup:

Welcome Jason. Look forward to see how your build goes! Any idea as to what sytle you plan to build?

I was able to spend about a month in Newcastle, back in 1995. Went there on a USAF detachment (TDY). Our squadron was working and flying with 3 Squadron from RAAF Williamstown.

Banjoman,

G'day mate! (I"ve always wanted to say that!) :lol: Glad to have you aboard. I'm a banjo picker........or used to be. Build a nice teardrop and go bush and sit and play to your hearts content. Out there no-one will care if you play well or not! :roll:
Chris :D

The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.
