    Probably not the best idea, but I checked my super. Down 23% in about a month, gone back to my 2017 value. Plus side is I've got 20+ years to make it back. Great.

    Yep, we're all in the same boat. I may have to add a few more years to my retirement date.

    Covid - 19 impacts.

    Flight costs have increased by 6K over 6 rosters. Schedule for flights is really restricted. One flight a day out of Townsville to Brisbane. Noticed one of the Melb- Brisbane legs has been scheduled on a monster plane as well, so so much for social distancing!

    The site is at level 3 restrictions and everyone is now on an 8/6 roster, or one that matches that - unfortunately this means I am now on a 14/14 roster, but due to the nature of the work, will be working from home in the first week of the home period.

    The change in roster completely smashes Licola for me this year; however I guess its probably up in the air anyway - who knows? I am going to see if I can make a change however if this situation drags on, to get to Licola would cost me a months work based on the roster matching - not going to happen unfortunately.

    Edit - Virgin have already changed 2 of the flights I booked yesterday, so things are very fluid at the moment it seems. Now its going to take 14 hrs to get home from site instead of 5.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Its tough up here right now, refrig container for one of my projects just died, 200k of temp sensitive rubber at risk if it gets over 15degC for 3 hrs - been at 15 deg C for 2 and refrig compressor has crapped out. Scrambling to find somewhere to put 12 pallets of material. Guys being forced into shared bathroom accom, some on the same shifts, Covid 19 hygiene standards not being met, guys talking about walking - funny enough, 'to where' as we are in 'nowhere' out here, but its a real problem

    Hi all, been fairly quiet on here for awhile as we’ve had a shithouse six months, Worked away in New South Wales for the winter then came home for the start of the hardwood season and it rained solid for five weeks and we only worked couple of days so I went back to New South Wales for a month then came back at the start of December, worked the first week then the following Monday morning the engine shit itself and had to put a brand new crate motor in , we got it going in 3 days then Vicforest shuts down for 2 weeks over Christmas but I had a private logging job to do so worked right through Christmas, New Years etc to get some money in the bank , then the f@%n fires hit & we were out of the bush for 7 weeks , Went doing other work - interstate etc to fill the time in but only just got paid for it now , started back in the bush at start of February but as Vicforest is 30days from the end of the month we don’t get paid till 1st April so 3 months with pretty much no pay has been less than ideal . Anyway that was a long winded explanation on my hiatus from here for a while I guess ,

    I just got told that there is a heap of people camped up at Wonnangatta to escape the virus, however ALLEGEDLY they have been getting robbed at knife point for their supplies , A bloke who is friends with the local Coppers told me that & they have to go up and sort it out, if that is true and correct humanity has reached an all-time low but after seeing the shit fights going on in supermarkets over toilet paper, nothing would surprise me

    Hope the lean times are behind you, mate. So far, down this way, everyone is pretty calm about it all, except that bog rolls in the markets are harder to come by than unicorns.

    The COVID-19 message has been flogged to death on site, so what does one of my contractors do, he waits 3 days before reporting to the medical clinic saying he is feeling nausous and now he is in isolation in camp, awaiting outcome of tests. Rule 1 if ill stay in room, rule 2, if ill, notify immediately, stay in your room, rule 3 if in a particular 'at risk group - aboriginal, take extra care, refer to 1 and 2 - WTF is wrong with people. Heading back to camp now to wake a guy up on night shift and move him out of his room as these guys share a bathroom. I guess you cant put brains in statues.
