    @Cuppa - As always, a great read! Keep an eye out for pieces of Amber on the beach and in amongst the rocks. I have several pieces that I found years ago on that headland, some with excellent bug specimens in them that I really should get polished up one day.
    Between Patrols ATM. Had a beaut GU with 6.5 Chev TD. Next is a GU ute with a 4.5 litre Cummins conversion and a camper on the back.

    Apparently pieces of Ambergris can turn up too - way more valuable!

    Firstly, so sorry for your loss, Cuppa.

    I wonder if that bloke burns through house sitters as quick as a hot curry does your insides?

    Thanks Muddy, I suspect you are quite perceptive. He did mention he'd had a bad run with house sitters in the past. I expect he'll repeat that to the next ones.

    Love the write-up as always.
    My condolences about your father.
    And such a shame that owner acted like a dick... Some people have nothing better to do than to simply act ungrateful.
    But you still lived in what most of us deem as "paradise" ...

    Bloody hell mate. Great write up. Condolences to you firstly, second. What a f*#kwit the owner is. You have more resilience than me to rude people thats for sure, kudos to you. Someone barks at me, I will bark back twice a hard.
