    Brad feel free to post a highlight or 2

    mine

    - I loved hearing about the author (a muso) and how the kombi was involved in the UK music scene
    - the simple hand drawn skecth by Dutchman Ben Pon that became the kombi

    Been through interested parties and a couple need to confirm if they want to read it or not :rolleyes:.

    Ok so person who has it is responsible for packing it to avoid/prevent damage and pay postage to the next in line who they can contact via PM/Conversation to obtain address.

    1. 68Bus - Brisbane, Qld - Received app. 30/06/2015 - Forwarded sometime W/E 31/07/15
    2. ruby6689 - Nimbin NSW Received 03/08/15
    3. vwfreak03 - Hobart Tasmania
    4. kombiwomble - ? Tasmania
    5. KahunaKombi - Bracken Ridge, Qld
    6. Grantus - Southern ACT
    7. wirrah - Lower Hunter, NSW
    8. cbus - Sunshine Coast, Qld
    9. Weekender - Ashgrove, Qld
    10. paul77 - Brisbane, Qld
    11. betsy - Parkdale, Vic
    12. StevieVW - Somerset, Tasmania - Will Amanda want to read it also?:oops:

    13. oldman - Avalon Beach, NSW
    14. Zombi - Camooweal, Qld
    15. lolight70 - ? WA
    16. Wombatventures SA

    So you can see even allowing 2 weeks per member to read and say 5 days via Aust Post to deliver it's going to take a while to get around - quick calc approximately 40 weeks so far.

    Are you trying to make this process even slower than it already is? o_O

    I'm sure Bert would love a drive to Canberra, just to deliver a book!:p

    I feel sorry for you Brad, when you have little kids everything takes 8 times longer, then you have these oldies winging how long it taking you, when all they have to do is roll out of bed and fart in the morning, bet you didn't even get to finish it
