Well everyone in ADISC and especially all of you in Australia and New Zealand!
It is getting to be that time of year when my husband Don and I spend a month down under. We will be flying direct to Melbourne from Los Angeles, arriving on Monday 15 November, before lunch.
We will spend a few nights in Melbourne, so we can visit friends at the zoo one day and the Healesville Sanctuary another day. After we buy enough supplies, we will turn in our rental car. The documentary crew will pick us up at our hotel for the drive to the French Island ferry. On French Island we will add interviews with rangers and other experts about koala.
After a few days on French Island we take the ferry back to the mainland for a drive to Hall's Gap. Many of the koala rounded up each spring are re-located to Hall's Gap. We will be finding out how the 2009 re-located koala settled in. Some of those were fitted with radio tracking collars, which might still be working.
Unfortunately this year we need to back-track to the Melbourne Airport for a flight to Perth. We will be around Perth for a week, but one of those nights we will be camping with the numbats and the rangers who protect them.
From Melbourne we will fly to Wellington, New Zealand. Our original plan was to fly down to Christchurch, but at the moment everyone we need to visit there are recovering from the earth quake. We do not want to get in the way. So if we must skip Christchurch this trip we will explore North Island more.
Last year I was very happy with the Tena products I bought. I am petite, so I was wearing Tena slips to bed and when the pull-on Tena undies were not practical. I forget the exact product name.
Perhaps members in Australia and New Zealand can tell me the correct names for those Tena. It would be a huge help if you good folks could tell me dealers or stores in Melbourne, Perth and Wellington that stock Tena.
Last trip we met a few ADISC members for dinner in Sydney, in Melbourne and in Perth. Last time we had to cancel our dinner in Adelaide when we had to extend our stay on French Island. So any of the ADISC members who are over 18 who would like to meet us are very welcome to send me PM. As we set firm dates I will make sure all who want to meet know our exact schedule.
Also like last year I will do my best to check ADISC every few days, reporting about our adventures.
