An unexpected long visit to AU

Hello fellow LR enthusiasts.
Due to the response on this virus issue, I find myself visiting longer than originally planned.
Enjoyed a drive along The Great Ocean Road. That was spectacular. Only wish I had my LR to go travelling into the interior.

Sadly, with this lockdown I am really missing these great coffee shops and restaurants in Melbourne... Guy Pensa

You will not be able to move very soon. Get some Toby Estate coffee beans, Broadway roast from a Harris Farm fruit shops, most have it but phone the branch to check, & a hand grinder from a department store. Don't use boiling water in coffee & you will be ok. With cream! Priority project!

P.S. Boost (Telstra network) mobile 6 & 12 month pre paid are some of the chespest, Coles, Post Offices etc have the $2 starter Sim. Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

Australia 2007 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Sumatra Black

Locked down in country Victoria too.

I can only look at my cars most of the time.

Had to go into the office in the city on Wednesday to pick up some supplies. Enjoyed the drive so much after two weeks of not going further than a few km. I usually dislike driving to the office.

(Fuel stations are considered essential services and I am a programmer/technician for service station systems. I had to go to work to pick up equipment, tools and documents. So it was all legal.) Brett Nicholson

If this keeps going Sydney Northern Beaches will raise Spit Bridge, knock down Roseville Bridge & blow up Mona Vale Road. The only 3 access points.

But I'm not sure if it would be to keep everyone else out or us in! But it will keep my sister out who lives in Mosman on the south side of the Spit Bridge which now has the second highest Covid-19 rate in Australia.

Ironically the joke was the Silvertails wanted passport controls at the Spit Bridge to stop the riff-raff getting to the Northern Beaches. Not so funny any more! Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!
