That’s me down there in the middle. Over 2,500 Lumber Jocks on this site and the closest one is a quarter of the world away.

well I guess you’d better get spreading the word over there in your piece of this planet. Get them to have a peek and they’ll be hooked in no time.

Hey Martin, that IS better! Now I’d only have to travel 7 hours by plane to see the nearest Jock, instead of 12! :)

it sure is growing fast!
I wish I’d did snapshots of this for each month of the eMag. Would have been nice to see the change since June of last year.

But it is a small world after all, isn’t it? Glad to have you here!

And here I was lamenting that the nearest Jocks I found were a three hour drive away! Thanks for putting it in perspective for me ;)

Does look like the middle of nowhere, but you still have company there in your computer.

I don’t think you lack people where you live.

Isn’t it the most highly populated area per square mile in the world?

The bright side is that you should get dibs on some local lumber that would be considered exotic over here in the states.

MsDebbie, got that shop tour scheduled yet?

It’s a big lonely world – thanks to LJ it’s getting smaller every day.

Yeah Eric, get some pictures up of the local lumber. I’m sure you will get the same drool response from woodworkers worldwide. Everything the Aussies have shown us has been tasty.

And some shop pictures would be a good too.
