« Part 27: Did not go to Melbourne... and I was missed... Part 28 of Going to local shows. series Part 29: Tasmanian Timber for sale at Maleny Wood Expo.. »

One more sleep and it is off into the wide blue yonder… off to the Apple Isle… Tasmania… land of Huon Pine, James Boag’s Beer and the Tasmanian Devil….

It does not get any better for a woodworker or a demonstrator of woodworking equipment or both… off to a place with some of the worlds greatest timber…

I am so excited to be able to jet off to Tasmania and attend one of the best woodworking shows of the year…

Bags packed, tickets paid for, motel organised… Parking at the airport is booked..

Brisbane Airport Parking is a great way to drive to the airport and not have to worry about your car… you drive to the BAP and leave your car… they then transport you by minibus to the airport… they will even detail your car while you are away… then they pick you back up straight from your incoming flight and return you to your car… great service and just over ten bucks a day…

If you happen to be in Launceston this weekend… do yourself a favour and attend the Wood Show at the Silverdome.. come on in and say HI to Luke and me… check out the new attachments for the TWC…
I have both digital cameras… still and video … charged and ready to capture all the fun and games….

I always knew you had sold your soul to the devil, that’s how you can make those projects so fast! Now you are making your annual trip of fealty. Don’t try to kid us Larry, we know you are up to no good.

How’s the beer down there? The only time I was on an Aussie Coast Guard ship, they had beer on tap! That’s the way to do it. Went to have lunch with their medical officer on ship when I was in Taiwan for two years with the navy.
Long time ago, like 40 years.

Sounds like a good time for sure. I think I might try and go to a show next year. Seems like people have a great time at them.
