At the end of last month I got the confirmation of my booking for the caravan cabin in Kingston SE.

Not liking my chances of getting there now. Not that I want to go through our WA hard border. I have always loved the Nullabor and I like it EVEN MORE now it's keeping us safer.:clapping:

I still have $1,483 in credit with Virgin for my Yeppoon trip that didn't happen and I recon I've kissed that credit goodbye.

Kingston is a bit too close to Sicktoria at the moment anyway.

Anything that happens next year is a bonus I'd say.

I'm only planning my international trip for 2022 at the moment with tongue in cheek.

Good to hear from you @Chook and to know you are safe and well. Yup I reckon international travel is off for a while - I was planning a return trip to UK next year but reckon that’s off. Looks like internal interstate travel will also be restricted for a while 

Sold my Sysmic and quite a few kites. Now moved and settling into downsized house but still have my Peter Lyn F buggy, 2 kites, a harness and helmet.   ...... so! Take care over there in the Wild West.

I was listening to the ABC radio the other day and Lucy Tink from Serviceton was talking about the debacle of the border closure for residents/farmers etc that have property both sides of the border.  Related to Jenny & @bull31 ?  Got the new van almost ready to go too.... @mik333 have you still got #456?  How are you finding it?  We're #458.

Yep , Hi John, Lucy is married to a second cousin and only live a few kms from our farm but on VIC side and also have farm land in SA as do many farmers in this area . It has gone crazy with with people not being able to do shopping or go to doctors etc. They now have to travel a lot further into VIC to do these things. Jenny’s brother leases our farm and he also lives just over the border in VIC and he has to travel a lot further to go through border check points even though our farm and another of theirs is only a few kms down the road from them. Don’t know the answer to the issues but it’s not easy and there’s a lot of animosity to in the community at the moment with an us and them mentality which is crazy as they are family, friends and work colleagues of all of us.   
we ourselves have sold our house in Bordertown and since mid March have lived mostly in Kingston with the occasional trip back to bordertown to get mail etc. and stay at the farm which is only a bit over a km from the border

Stay safe everyone in these uncertain times and hope to see you all in January but is looking less and less unlikely. Here’s hoping ?.

cheers Brenton 

ps: nice van , I new you’d come over to the soft side soon.  Enjoy your travels in it.

What are you guys on about ?

Hey @Kozzie,

Kingston SE in an annual trip over to South Australia mid January with most of the Victorian's (and a handful from NSW and ACT and one WA) heading over to have a couple of weeks flying, buggying, chasing me in my blo-fly (Land Yacht) etc. But with the current boarder closures, it might be on hold for a while. 

All the best

Well I received confirmation of my accommodation at the caravan park in Kingston yesterday for next year. 

After a telephone conversation with them this morning they are really going over and above to work through these covid times and Western Australia's hard border policy.

If I give them at least 7 days notice my deposit will be refunded in full. Less than 7 days I will be charged a $20.00 cancelation fee. How good is that.:clapping:

So............. Fingers crossed we will arrive in Kingston on the 16th Jan and depart on the 27th Jan 2021.

I have also booked for 2022 incase next year turns to shit.
