  1. Some progress on my new man/slot cave, "Bahia Vista" may get a slight extension when I reassemble it. A long way to go yet but things are moving along. Wide angle lens view, it's not that big
  2. I received 2 packages from Australia today. #1 Picked up Adelaide 29/7, left Melbourne 6/8, delivered 18/8. #2 Picked up Melbourne 12/8, departed 13/8, received 18/8
  3. I have my fingers crossed, but I'm pretty sure we will be ok. I need to make a few more plans/bookings, we are adding on a couple of weeks semi South road trip.
  4. That was a great evening out of the weather, thanks all. I will investigate my Aussie touring car which is clearly throwing a major hissy fit because apparently I drove the wrong car for a spell - it ended badly. I so love intermittent electric gremlins, it sure gets your attention when full throttle comes and goes. At least my GT3 ran nicely, and my box standard pre workup NSR F1 was nice to drive - sorry for being crashed in the way of your awesome fugly cool car Pat. I’m missing having a track/shed more than I imagined.
  5. The lovely chair in front of the fire is great, but Bronwen wants me head out into the cold and rain so she can enjoy peace, quiet and chocolate. I will be at slot cars at Falls Road tonight.
  6. My box is packed for a night at Oakland Raceway. See you all there.
  7. Last package from Chico, California arrived last week after 4 weeks. Two weeks to Auckland then another two weeks to me.
  8. Picked up Melbourne 21/4 International Departure 18/5 Delivery NZ 10/6 A tatd slower than normal but it arrived safely.
  9. Thanks Mac, and guys, and race catering. Good to be back.
  10. My package from Germany arrived today, it took 4 weeks, a bit slow, but given covid-19, and NZ post saying there is no service from Germany, I'm pretty happy. Gives me hope that my decals from Spain may yet turn up.
  11. I’m in, I could be even more rusty in the driving than usual, it has been a while.
  12. I have had almost normal shipping times from Sydney, Brisbane/Gold Coast and the UK, and slightly slower then normal, but reasonable in Covid19 times, from the US (California). I have a package from Melbourne that was sent 21/4 that has just made it onto a plane, but not yet to me. I have items from Spain and Germany held up as they claim to have no transport capacity. China seems to show international departure in 1 or 2 days, so normal at that end, not so quick once it hits NZ, but that also is normal in my experience. I have a query in about an ebay purchase which was delayed when HK post wasn't accepting mail, but sound like it is now lost in the store, as despite notification of dispatch, it still shows it as being "prepared for shipping". Ooops looks like I have been spending too much time OnLine.
  13. I will have a poke around my storage shed and see if there are any potential entrants.
  14. Our appointment is not until June 4th, clearly Bronwen will need to refine her bribing technique.
  15. I, along with a lot of other oldies/vunerable, will be waiting and seeing how it goes for a week or two. I think as long as only ten turn up we are ok, but social distancing could be a bit harder in some venues.
  16. I have the first car I changed the guide in, major surgery job, then I saw It wasn’t in the rules. No objection to allowing guide change.
  17. Don't hold back, all the above. I need a vynil printer to print internal decals for my RC bikes, but my being able to race said bikes is probably a couple of years away, when we can safely travel again.
