It’s been a long time coming, but our little Aussie dollar has finally surpassed the US dollar. This opens up a world of opportunities when purchasing equipment.

We finally arrived at ATW at closing time , they were willing to stay back to settle things etc, but Owen had a quick talk to them and organised to come back and fix/ settle everything in the morning. So off we went to our accommodation for the night (which I had booked in advance), the Yandina Caravan Park which was about 1 minute down the road and checked in and got the keys to our ensuite cabin ($90 p/n) and settled in (I must say the cabin wasn’t of the best quality and certainly wasn’t worth $90 p/n as the toilet leaked all night, the doors were missing internal handles so shutting the doors from inside was difficult, the doors didn’t slide well and the walls were mouldy etc (but with all of the rain that the Brisbane area had had since December last year I can see that this could have caused issues with swelling of frames or doors making them opening and shutting and sliding difficult and causing mould etc, and that these things would take a while to fix but in the mean time I personally think they should have reduced the price until these things were fixed).
