Sitting in the driveway at beer o'clock can lead to seeing many surprisings things both natural and man made, this flew over recently, I didn't have my camera but neighbour did so he took these and sent them to me today (everything was a blurr to me at the time anyway due to eye issue).
They have just completed a second and bigger runway at the now international Maroochy Airport and recently there have been numerous test flights, which is what we think this was, it did a number of passes over and around the airport, then went out over the ocean.
Interesting bit of gear, have not seen a refuel-er here before.

When I finally get the truck sitting on the road the way it should drive, after 2yrs of saying that it steers from the drive.. Wheel alignments done last week and the suspension height dropped another 15mm and the bloody thing now drives in a straight line, as it should have from new! Forking w.anker fools that set things up and tell people that how it needs to be but what would I know, I just wrestle it all over the road all day long. 🖕

I think I'm making progress on the mistress of finance of convincing her that we need a new evakool fridge before we go away camping again..
The Waeco is going ok still after I put a new thermistor sensor in it but I'm not gonna tell her that...
I just want a new fridge..
Is that so bad?🤷

Ordered some printer ink online at 2:00pm yesterday & it arrived here in the Northern Maldives at 4:00pm today. Can't beat that for service.

Selling a lounge suite on facebook marketplace and having the buyer organise payment and a removalist to uplift it within 2 hours. Rapt. All done and with near zero effort on my part.

Also, I second the rivnuts. So satisfying.

Rivnuts/mutserts. What wonderful things these are, that allow us to remedy (some of) the design f***ups made by car manufacturers to save a fraction of a cent.
I have had 2 kits for many years, whitworth with ally inserts ( just sitting around now lol) and my metric kit with steel and St/St inserts, hell of a lot of gear hanging on mine from the trusty rivnuts.
