Hi there

So the humidity is getting the better of you. I suppose Brisbane is not on your "where to stay in Aus" list when you return...

Our visa's are finally sorted. It feels like ages since we started the whole process. We arrive in London on the 3 rd of October (06).

The US trip sound excellent.

Stay well, and say hi t Linda

Cheers cheers

Well done on the visas mate. October just in time for winter!!! We arrive back in OZ on the 1st October. Make sure you send your work emails when you get them.
From Dad - Tuesday, 29th August 2006, 06:41 (GMT)
Knights 44 Panthers 4. Next week they have the bye. We may get a home semi. Sounds like you had a great birthday and you & Linda are enjoying the States.
Hopefully we get a home semi and send the broncos on an early summer holiday!!

Hi there to the two of you. This is the first chance I have had to look at your site properly, the wedding has taken up all my time! As you would expect the 26th was a perfect day even though you weren't here. The wedding went brilliantly - even if we do say so ourselves and yesterday was the first day we weren't still clearing up or packing up marquees! I have to agree with you about Miami, not the most we have been with a place. Hope you got a chance to say hi to Micky and Tink inbetween rides. Have only missed one of the Tri nations to date and glad to see a clear winner (sorry, I know it should be Oz, but I just love the black kit!).

Miss you both a huge amount and a belated happy birthday Matty, we did raise a glass of grog to you at the reception, hope you felt the vibes.

Vibes felt lindee cheers for the message.

From Stacy - Sunday, 10th September 2006, 12:39 (GMT)
Glad to hear you guys are having a great time in my neck of the woods! Now that you have had first hand experience... you will agree with me... Canada is sooo much better than south of the border! Hee hee!
Yeh we love Canada!!! But the Americans are funny to watch!
From Melly - Monday, 11th September 2006, 12:43 (GMT)
Hellllloooo TT and Matt! Great to hear you guys are having heaps of fun and the camping isnt going too badly. Bronco's lost :( The bl**dy st george/illawarra dragons beat them... you can imagine what Trent has been like for the last few days!!! Argh! But the good news is that we are still in the finals as we came third, so our second chance is next week. Come on boys! :)

Missing you heaps
Mel xx
Hey Mel! Oh that is crap about the dragons, pray the broncos beat the knights if they ever clash! Miss you too! I hope London is treating you well! I'm in Vancouver now just about to check the place out! Later love TT
From Dad - Thursday, 14th September 2006, 21:28 (GMT)
Knights play Broncos in the Final! Bederus out for 6 weeks for dangerous tackle.
Let you know how we go.
Only text us if the Broncos win.......I cant be living with Matt if the Broncos don't win ;-)
From Rob - Tuesday, 19th September 2006, 21:50 (GMT)
Keeping quite?? The second the dismal Knights lost I sent ya a text as I didn't want your old man to have to tell ya the bad news. I guess the mobile system over there is as up to date as the internet connections. Keep the updates coming guys. Lovin the photos.

I haven't been using my mobile the whole trip. Linda has her SIM in my phone. Figured i'd just update on the net. More fotos to come when i get on better computer.
From LindyLlew - Sunday, 24th September 2006, 18:36 (GMT)
Hi again guys,

I am exhausted reading all your exploits, it sounds fun! I hope you love Vegas - I really did. Its the kind of place you can only stay for a few days there is so much to see (without gambling a cent!).

Full on excitement here with my 5th Decade party coming up on 30th - I finally got round to organising it! Sorry you wont be here in person but I am sticking photos of people who can't be there to balloons so you will be there in a way!

Love and hugs to you both

Linda & Cliff

Happy 50th to ya Lindee have a super time. In Hawaii at present so will have a cocktail for ya!

From Wolski - Thursday, 28th September 2006, 04:50 (GMT)

Wow i can't beleive you guys will be back in oz soon. While in Oahu head straight for the Cam highway and grab a surfboard, oh yeah stop into the foodland at waimea bay and order a turkey sandwich, it rivals anything served up in NYC. take it easy guys and we'll drink up soon.
Picking up a car in a couple of hours to drive around the North shore so will stop in for a turkey sandwich!! Hopefully there's some swell about. Already have 2 interviews on the sunny coast with Covey associates and Cardno's. You know what these guys are like??
From Mel and Trent - Thursday, 28th September 2006, 11:59 (GMT)

From Skello - Tuesday, 17th October 2006, 12:12 (GMT)
Great trip Matt & Apples. Matty, get a job you bum. Stop giving the Beaches such a good business!
Take care.
Yeah was a great trip skello and it is time to look for a job as i have been dividing my time equally between surfing and drinking schooners!!
From Mel - Thursday, 19th October 2006, 11:30 (GMT)
Nice car Matt! Hopefully you will be putting that to good use on the beach up at double island point! Trent says that there is an awesome point break up that way.

London is yucko at the moment - its been drizzly, and quite smoggy, but not too cold which i guess is a good thing!

Hope the teachings still going well Tuts! Have you brought out the scary pommy yelling yet ;-)

Love mel
Im sure you can see me driving Matts car! That is crap about the weather i cant say the same for here. The scary pommy yelling works best of annoying neighbours, but I might just bring it out once or twice. Hurry up and come home!
From Matt C - Friday, 27th October 2006, 11:59 (GMT)
Nice car mate, no job yet then, good luck with the interviews. I see the face hair growth got quite impressive.
Cheers mate, yeah not a bad car, better that southern trains i spose!. Hopefully will have work lined up soon so watch this space. Will put more pics of surboard and skateboard onn for ya's!!
From Markus - Friday, 27th October 2006, 13:50 (GMT)
Matt - heard you baught yourself a skateboard. U'r sure it'll carry your weight??
Salü from Switzerland where the mountains are high and the cows are happy.
Markus aka Fatboy 2
Ah thr Kaiser Chief!!

Yes skateboard and new surfboard have passed all load bearing tests, not sure about your weight though big fella hahaha!!
Waiting to hear on job interviews today so fingers crossed. Is that your new work email?
From Mel - Thursday, 2nd November 2006, 12:32 (GMT)
Well done on the new job, that is fantastic! And i'm sure Tuts will get a more permanent position soon. i'm so jealous of you standing there in yr tshirt and shorts! Today london is freezing! Keep the updates coming.
Thanks Mel, i think you should get a little prize for the best message leaver and faithful reader of our travel page. Miss ya!
