  1. I've recently returned from oz and Nz for a year about heading back out beginning of December for another year and a half. I personally used viber app for smartphones. If you've got good 3G signal or wifi it is as good as a phone call!

    Vulcan V Bomber

    Dads an ex RAF wing co, so I've lived at most of the bases. He always enjoys telling a story about me in the garden as a littleun in one of those walking frames on wheels. Cruising round the garden happily under my own steam, when out of no where a Vulcan came over as low as possible, scared the living daylights out of me, and ended up in the flower bed upside down slightly miffed to say the least. And I've been a fan of the Vulcan ever since ha
  3. Hey guys, flying back from oz on the 15th but land at 8 30pm. got a friend picking me up, but can't be ***** with driving back to Devon that night, plus she wants to go shopping in London the day after, bloody women ha So need a decent hotel near to heathrow. Can anyone recommend a nice one, not to fussed on the price as long as it ain't ridiculous. After a 28 hour flight I don't wanna end up not being able to sleep cause of a bad mattress lol Cheers Flash

    Alcohol

    Recently since I've been working abroad 4 or 5 bottles of corona a night, most of the time due to the 35c + temps everyday combined with a 12 hour shifts 7 days a week till it rains. Then when it rains the only place to go within 130kms is the outback pub so inevitably that's where we end up, don't even want to think about how much gets drunk there, although I do know th last big session we drank em out of all there champagne(cheap and nasty) and all the white wine. Never felt soo rough in my life! Don't think living snd working with 7 Irishman helps with the drinking situation one bit!
  5. Yeah that's what i thought! Gonna be in Nz for 6 months so probably just wait till im back. Out of curiosity where on exmoor are you?
  6. Hmm I think I'll send em an email then. Can't hurt to ask really. When they contact you to organise the interview is it normally through a phone call or via an email?
  7. It's the most beautiful place I have ever been, and they have everything you could possibly want there! Scariest I did was a 134 metre bungy jump, proper cack ya pants moment that was!! Back out in October for silage season, could get used to spending every summer in the Southern Hemisphere!
  8. Worked for 5 months on a dairy farm in New Zealand, makes for a nice change in scenery. Also happens to be one of the best places in the world for shooting and fishing, which I found as soon as I started travelling after finishing work! Here's some photos, trying to upload them on iPad but only allowing one at a time the ******! First is of me and some mates on a possum hunting trip, not the best or most flattering of pictures. We were lamping them from a truck with .22 WMR The following three pictures are from the nicest trout fishing spot I have ever seen! .
  9. Currently in Australia working, but back in England for a month or so in September. After working out here I've finally got a decent amount of money in the bank, so now can afford to get my fac, and the exact rifles I want etc. only problem is the time I have in England, don't want to apply and then get a phone call when I'm in New Zealand to organise an inspection etc What are the chances of the inspections etc being done within a month of applying. Gna print out the forms and get em filled out ready to post as soon as I arrive in England. I'm in Devon if that helps with the processing times etc Cheers Flash
  10. They also have the largest gun shop in thr world, or so the say. It is believable. Incredible place, aptly named gun city! Everything from 22 air rifles to 50 cal rifles and aks!
  11. Yeah some of the old tractors are hellish pieces of kit! Mate runs a fiat 110 90 and she's an absolute beast when's she's really working hard!
  12. I'm thr other way. Like my new kit. But I'm not payin so that could be why ha Although I am partial to nice David brown
  13. The dynas are nice. But ain't driven em much
  14. I was a case man before coming here, now it's all about the Deere!!!
  15. That's an animal!!!! This my ride Tried attaching a photo but iPad is lying to me lol
  16. Nah ain't seen that video. U got a link?
  17. I'm not technically an expat, just out experiencing the world before I'm too old Have looked into the gun laws and they are strict, maybe even more so then blighty. Nz on the other hand is altogether different ball game! Basic rifle license is semi auto rifles with max mag capacities. Then work your way up to full autos. Also they have DOC land which is department of conservation land which is free to hunt once you have a permit.
  18. That's some nice kit! Stuff we have here is a bit more "agricultural" if you know what I mean. We're 140km from nearest dealer so need stuff that's real easy to fix and maintain otherwise it puts the kit out of work for days when it does breakdown sadly. Back out to New Zealand in October, kit they have there is exactly thr same as England, maybe a bit bigger. Quite weird the difference oz and Nz when it comes to the farm equipment
  19. Oh and forgot to add, it's all done with GPS and auto steer, so spend the majority of my 12 hour shift on Facebook and YouTube haha
  20. Oh yes. I'm currently on night shift hence why I'm on here haha My rig at the moment is a Jd 9560rt, 560bhp and tracks. Hauling a 12 metre chisel plough with 60 points on it. Not even using half thr power it can offer
  21. You can do that with an iPhone, personal hotspot, same as with the iPad. Just bought an iPad 4, absolutely brilliant. Synced all contacts from iPhone straight to it without realising. And more apps then I know what to do with! Good battery as well, lasts over 12 hours with general use when I'm working
  22. If you add the other half of the farm it's 30000 acres Including the scrubland that is grazed. Guy who owns it also has 6 other farms, one of which is called a station, just cows and half a million hectares!
  23. I dairy farm back in the uk, was working in New Zealand on a dairy farm from October last year till April. Now in Australia on a arable farm tractor driving. Small farm by standards out here. Only 3500 hectares!!!
