As Chris said we had a go in NZ awesome place been before years ago  but its not changed much its still the best place on earth as far as i know.
   But just as it all seemed to be going great My Father took ill last December came back at Christmas had a great time fantastic new year family get together the last time i saw him alive.  Died sudden a couple of days latter when i was up in Scotland, .
He was 97 so i guess it should have been Expecting it, But it made it no easier still hit me hard.
    So still here for the moment not by any means sure yet when we will go over to NZ again or even if we will, My rental on the old place here was not as straightforward as i had hoped, but back in now but place is rough more like camping.
  My old projects mostly indoors are pretty much as they were but parts and some stuff i stored in two caravans out back had rats in them, still poisoning em as we speak lots of messy stuff to sort some rewiring plumbing and joinery plastering to do before i even get to do imminently.
     Busy is good it has helped me a bit with me dads loss, but still got me the other day in one of those quiet moments.
   got a few bits from NZ have a few more bikes now a bobber build [n an old kawasaki 500 vulcan i just started last weekend i will post up a thread when i get chance.

Sorry for your loss - I just saw this that someone posted elsewhere today for the husband of a friend who passed away a year ago and thought it was very true.

Two years And Life changing stuff make much of this thread irreverent now, I think i still have much of what i had before and some more.
   Desperado is still there minus its Triumph engines they were sold with the other marlin which went to France, I have  just the chassis and a pop front axle vitesse  IRS. I have ideas i want to do with this still but its radically different to the original idea.  But still want to do something with the bits i have,project will be now adjusted some what when i eventually pick up on it again.

We all try different things in life..all searching for something ? When very often it's right here all around you ? If you can find peace in your mind..and just go with the flow..things tend to work out..never has you hope but embrace it..my dream of moving to Spain still hasn't happened..but I live in hope. Cheesy at least your alive and planning projects dude.. Wink

To be fair i think we are  in a better situation than we was before, and kids dropped straight back into education here so we are here now until they get done with learning review the situation then perhaps.
  On the project front I think i will be doing a bike next i have a few  in stock  Grin Grin Just thinking on a direction to go and what with.
