Jan was keen to travel down to Tassie for a meeting with Tassie Irrigation, in relation to the dam and water supply on our farm.
Having just received some good results from the Doctor and with everything fairly stable I decided to join her. What an adventure!
We flew down commercially with Virgin on Tuesday night, stayed at the brand new (and very sharp) Peppers Silo hotel in Launny.
While Jan was at her meeting I met up with Miles Kendell (son of aviation pioneer Don Kendell) to check out my hangar at the airport (Miles keeps his Piper Cub there). Miles invited me to join him for a local flight which I couldn’t resist.
It was a beautiful day and we headed over to Ben Lomond and then our farm for a quick aerial. Miles had to fly to Melbourne as he is a Captain with China Southern and was due to fly out to China that night.
We drove through to Campbell Town to quickly catch up with my GP, Myrle Grey to let her know how my recovery was coming along. In the afternoon we headed down to the farm to check out how things looked. Everything was fantastic – the house looked like we’d only left a few weeks ago (thanks to our fantastic cleaner Cherry) and the garden was in top order thanks to Scotty, our gardener who helps out every few weeks
