Life without a laptop

Where is NIKNOFF ? i hear you all ask, things have been quiet on the blog, well the answer to that is the laptop decided to stop doing it's thing and although it's under warranty nothing moves fast in the service department of Toshiba or so it appears. In fact i am so annoyed with the way our situation has been handled it has put me off having another Toshiba Computer.

So, what's been happening since my last entry, nothing much really, we have been based at Kenilworth for 3 weeks and then went down to Kalbar and stayed at the showgrounds there for 6 days before returning back to kenilworth and taking up residency for another week. Vickie had some more Doctor appointments about her eye and that has compelled us to stay in the area, her Dr is in Maroochydore and only 45 minutes away from Kenilworth, the Eumundi Markets are on Wednesday & Saturday and only 30minutes away so we have been spending our time either chilling out or driving to & fro for appointments or markets.

The weather has been wet much like the rest of the East Coast at present, though certainly not like the floods the inland area's are getting, hot & humid and rain = Queensland at this time of the year, we don't mind it at all but we are getting an unsual amount of ants around the van which we are eradicating with baits & sprays.

We leave here Friday and go and stay at some mates at Maroochydore the night and then onto to Deception Bay where we will leave the rig at another mates place while we fly home for Xmas. Who know's when i will get the laptop back so there is a chance things will go quiet again untill then.

To all our family around Australia, our Mates, fellow Travellers we have met and the Lurkers out there [I know who you are] We would like to wish you all a very Happy, Safe & Enjoyable Christmas.

G,day, Frank here. We found your blog via a link with Retro Roamers.
Have gone all the way back to the beginning and have just finished your December entry. It seems we were at Kenilworth at roughly the same time as you. Perhaps a week later. We called in on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon and found the CMCA chapter South Burnett Travellers were there for their Christmas function so we joined in with them.
It rained heavily on Sunday so we left in the afternoon.
We also have a Toshiba and must admit the warranty service is a bit poor. I need a new keyboard as the "X" no longer works. Had to drive from Traveston to Caloundra to drop it off. Two weeks or more before it will be fixed. Grrr!
Will you consider adding our blog site to your links and of course I will do the same with yours.
