Well... A Big Hello and Happy 2013 to everyone..... Yes I have to change my persona to Double Decker @ the Daisy Wheel Grafton now... what can I Say... It was a Crying shame we all had to leave the Beautiful Deepwater Area there were a really good bunch of people there and some not so ;) ;) ..... but the move ooooohhhhhh OMG it took ages..... 1 month of Packing 2 x 20ft Containers, Filling the Double Decker with Gear, a large Truck and Large Car Trailer full of AP Gear, 11 car and Trailer loads(3 the first trip then 4 more trips with 2 cars and trailers) and the trip was only 11hrs south ONE WAY... Hey I also must Put a HUGE BIG THANKS to my mate DAVE for helping me You are an AWESOME Friend. So what are we up to now then.... Well we bought a mmm older neglected Nursery and Florist on 1 acre in South Grafton and have been hanging at the bit to get my AP up and running again... but first things first we had to get the shop ship shape and 8mths later we are still going hehehe...

But there is an AP GOD out there and they will be helping me build a Monster AP ... I have an Area to do my AP in and it is 8mtrs Wide by 56 mtrs long the top 7mtrs is flat the bottom 10 mtrs is flat and the 39 mtrs inbetween has a slope of 1.8 mtrs and facing long ways east to west Oh what a great slope for gravity to do its thing... That means I can get away with one pump mind you this time it might have to be a bigger one to move the water volume...

Welcome back, looks like a lot of work still ahead. Great place to set up your system to bring AP to the locals attention. Look forward to more photos and reports on progress.

All the best for 2013, cheers

Welcome back DD, Wow you do like a challenge. How are you going to manage AP and shop setup at the same time, only 24 hrs in a day.

I wonder if this project ever eventuated?

I wish people would subscribe to their own threads so at least they get an email if someone posts there.

hi guys sorry about the big delay in this.... but as was said was a big call doing it all and having a nursery and florist going 7 days a week... So some good and bad news ahead for everyone :(

unfortunately when we went to buy the place they wanted another $190,000 OVER the valuation after we spent 1 1/2 years working our toochies off.... So we had no choice but to walk away otherwise our kids would have been paying for it...

The Good news is after having a nursery for that long we had to move 20,000 plants + + + lots of other stuff so we still have the sytsem and are in the process of setting up our new configuration... SO we will be back
