Going home tomorrow.

Need a proper survey of the block and an excavator and proper disposal of rubbish incl asbestos. Nothin I can really do, have things to tidy up at home.

Block is good tho, nice northerly slope. Rather feral neighbors, need to get this area gentrified then TONS of capital appreciation. Some of the bush on the road to here so wild, so beautiful that poets would swoon.

Apart from the 3rd world shacks-beautiful. Had a nice long chat with a neighbor a few houses down the street, nice.

Not a suburban neighborhood this but fantastic views, fishing etc. Unlimited potential.

Lol I have a backhoe, excavator, 14t ton tipper

Obviously you have to come to the other side of Australia to borrow it but that's no worries, only a short jaunt of 7 or so days each way lol

Probably better off hiring a little excavator from Kennards or whoever for that, also gotta move the dirt somewhere if you have too much. I hate paying contractors if I can do it myself

that's my problem as well. I hate paying, but don't have the time to do it myself. It doesn't help that I've never used an excavator ... but how hard can they be? Do you need a license to use them?

Were you going to do gravel or concrete?
gravel ... it's just somewhere to park the trailer and future boat so that they're out of the way (don't tell the wife)

Nah no licence required, comes on a little trailer with a couple of buckets, easy as to drive and quick to learn. Couple of loads of 0-40mm road base and you'll be sailing the boat up there lol

That’s cause he ruptured the water main with the excavator, LOL.

Hehehe on of the dashcam videos, bloke washing his car, hears a noise—a boat is sitting in the middle of the road!
