Comment  ::   Which returned first, the Shark or the Graynomad?

Comment  ::   Ha ha, I dunno the answer to the first question, but I normally cross the road to get to the hardware store to buy another tool. 😀

Comment  ::   Hi Rob,
Seen your website on an Arduino blog. I'm a preserver of the personal website as I think social media has a couple of little, issues. You have done a marvellous job. Thank you Sir for taking the time to documenting your journey.

Comment  ::   Hi Adam,

Thanks, yes I too am not a big fan of social media, I do have an FB account but am not that active with it. My blog here has been running for 20 years and at any time I can easily go back and read what we did or where we were on a given date, can you imagine doing that on FB and even if you could they can change the rules at any time and POOF, it's all gone. I know because it happened to someone I used to know.

So lately I've been putting more time into this site.

Comment  ::   Hi Phillip,

Yeah we're still doin' fine. Dropped anchor on our land up here in central QLD. I often wonder how various family members are doing but I guess I'm too slack to actually try and find out :) Plus I don't have any contact details for you guys.

We really enjoyed your company all those years (about 20) ago, where does the time go eh?

Rob & Chris

Comment  ::   Well, just wanted to say hi again for a moment. Hope all is well with you and yours.
We have been enjoying a seemingly endless string of 98 deg days and 90% humidity. Can't believe I am about to say this, but looking forward to cooler weather.

And to add that nomadicista seems to have ended (or maybe my computer is messed up and won't allow connection). And the blog that Mr Sharkey had seems to have disappeared, too. Hope they are only temporarily off line...

Comment  ::   Yeah all is good here, just tinkerin' with small jobs and thinking about the design of a camper build in the Landcruiser.

Yep, it does look like nomadicista is having trouble, still there it seems but gives an SQL error, that's not a good sign.

Comment  ::   Just found you through an old post on the forums. Thought you has some magical way with words, and here I am. Thanks for the interesting look on your homepage btw. Love the font of the Guest Book also, haven't seen one of these in so long.
Hope all is well on the road,

Comment  ::   Hi Chris,

Gee I haven't visited the Arduino forum for some time. I don't do much electronics these days, more into metal and wood work.

Life is good for us these days, we stopped travelling full time a while back but will probably start going on 2-3 month jaunts next year. Meanwhile I'm happy just working on our land and house.

Comment  ::   Man, who would have thought that a legend like you would have even considered putting the soldering iron down. ;). That is awesome to hear though, that you guys are doing well! A few years ago I purchased my own piece of land ( just 10 acres), and started building from the ground up. I was really thinking about getting a few of those surplus freight (cargo?) containers, you know, the ones that you see on boats.
Well, glad to see all is well. I really hope you get to go back on the road next year, and if you do, we expect pictures!

Comment  ::   As you can see in the blog on this site we've made a reasonable house from containers. But we have a much milder climate that you I think.

I still like the IDEA of doing some more electronics, and I do have a couple of projects in mind that would be useful, We'll see.

Comment  ::   Hi Matthew,

Thanks for saying g'day. With my infrequent updates your annual visits might be just about right 😀 Too many other things to do these days.

Comment  ::   Hi Thomas,

Wow, now I really do feel old, in many ways it just seems like yesterday, but that was over 20 years ago. Did you ever drop in at the time? I used to get every man and his dog come and have a look.

Comment  ::   Hey Rob,
Thank you for sharing RDK116 Mk 1 and 2.
Did you sell Mk 1 as advertised for Aus$350k or did you rebuild it back on to the re-shortened Mk 1 chassis and call it Mk2?
I am busy building my own RDK116 and your ideas are super and hopefully not patented?
Thanks for the pics.

Comment  ::   Hi Marcel,

No we didn't sell it, I shortened the chassis and rebuilt. Feel free to copy anything worthwhile, the patents have lapsed :)
