Everytime we have even a small trip booked, this crap happens. It seems we're the unluckiest people to book away time.

It seems to be the same for the wife and myself every time we book a drive to Adelaide. Three weeks out theres an outbreak and SA borders slam shut. On this occasion they slammed shut after we were told not to leave the region though  :dontknow:

I can now see how much it would of sucked for those people living in Melbourne for all those months of lockdown, this not being able to do anything outside your house sucks a big one. My only saving grace is being able to still work, which is hardly a boon in some cases  :evil6:

Yer, that wasn't the best. It started out ok, then it got very monotonous quick.

Last three trips in a row; gear all packed, ute serviced, fuelled, tyres checked, water tanks filled, fridge turned on and stocked, etc, ready to leave next morning.... and overnight borders slammed shut or yet another bloody lockdown announced each time. All this and there isn't, and has never been a covid case within 200 kms of us...
Being old farts, we fear we will die of old age before we can travel freely again (dementia BEFORE adventure??)
As the number plates (almost) say "Victoria-the place NOT to be" during 2020/21...

I’d be really interested to see the total economic cost for the last 19 months. Doubt they’d be game enough to release figures on what kind of toll the lack of domestic travelers has added up to, especially the the little towns that only have a historic pub and little else going for them.
ASIC should release figures on how many ABNs have been closed over the last 12 months.

And also the crop farmers all over the country who rely on transient workers picking their produce.
So then we end up with false food shortages in some areas and good quality fruit and veg rotting on the ground.
And as mentioned above, less money going over the counters of the small shops and pubs in the area.
Having to wear a mask because someone allegedly caught the Rona 400 kms away doesn’t make sense either.
Rant over.
Don’t worry about things you can’t change!

Oh I nearly feel like kin. I'm trying not to giveup with the timing screwing us each time... but its getting to struggle street. We nearly want to give up and just wait for this magic vax number to be reached. Yep... dementia could be first. Wait! What was I saying?

I have a feeling that until the majority of the population have been vaccinated, there could be a Lockdown just before any major holiday break.

Just checked the Darwin booking site and behold they are finally open as of today.
Booked mine in for the first day at the earliest hour they open.

On the plus side: I hear that after the vaccination, mobile including 5G reception is much better when holding the phone to the ears.
AND you also get a direct line to Bill Gates... Win!

Just after my earlier post having a sook about covid-aborted trips, the Leader of the Opposition and I were crying into our cups of morning tea, but consoled ourselves with the possibility (if the 5 day lockdown only goes for 5 days - ha ha ha....) of getting to the Echuca Blues Festival (we had tickets n accommodation booked).
See how hopeful, positive and still sorta optimistic we are?

Then I read my emails....

Sweet. Fully vaccinated here, but I don't have a 5G phone to test it out. Will have to try. I wonder if my ears become mini antennas!

Jokes aside guys stuck in Vic, go and do your shopping now.
An excerpt from the TheAge online: "Victoria records 16 new cases, as exposure list tops 200
Victoria’s lockdown threatens to extend beyond five days"

No threat, its pretty much a given.

Seems like knee-jerk reactions are the call of the year. Hopefully all the borders will all be open for christmas at this rate.

On the news this morning:
Feel sorry for you lot stuck in NSW, appears Gladys and Co keeps stuffing it up with more and more cases just piling up.
Meanwhile Dan in Vic appears to be on the ball and calling lockdown to stop the spread so as to keep the state safe.

Nothing on Qld.
WA appears to be safe and partying.
Tasmania, does it exist... cannot find it on a map.
NT, after the snap lockdown a few days ago,we are going into a long weekend now... win!

Dan learnt his lesson last year, to follow WA and QLD with a harder approach. NSW is trying to be a trend setter, and unfortunately she is doing it with the worse strain to date and finding out the hard way that Dan is the man due to his epic stuffup last year. Atleast he isn't making the same mistake twice and being laxadaisy with it nowadays.
